Dear friends, readers, & visitors from everywhere, especially from the US, Australia, Portugal, the UK, Vietnam, n Saudi Arabia. 😉
It’s a great pleasure to talk to you about “Your Guaranteed Pass”, which is a new e-book, for people who are interested in real estate, or want to pass the CA State Real Estate Exam.
It’s unique method is unprecedented since it was completely personal experience, that took about a whole year of arrangement.
This book is now alive online, and available for all of you, in many sites: here’s one!
I dedicate this e-book for my little Princess, my youngest beautiful daughter, who has a smile that would brighten the whole world, and to my son. I wish them both best of luck in their lives, & to have wonderful families of their own.
It’s great to write a book about something that you experience yourself. When I heard a lot of complaints about not having enough books in the library to practice on the CA real estate state exam, I thought why not to try to pass that exam first, so that I would go through the whole experience; then, I can give a sound opinion about it, when I pass that exam.
That was it! I put time, efforts, & a very strict schedule for studying real estate. I took three courses online, then I had the preparation by myself, depending on many sources, such as textbooks from the library, CD from the Book stores, & online materials as well. I cut down the gym to once a week. My writings, I limited them to one paragraph or two. No movies to watch at bed-time. No songs to listen to except classic music for better focus. Good nutrition, and one cup of coffee or tea a day. That formula worked for me like magic. It could work for you as well, but it all depends on other circumstances in your life.
This e-book is prepared specifically for those who intend to have the Real Estate Exam as a Salesperson, or as a broker, in California. There are things in common with other states, but it is still intended for California.
The license exam is not easy to pass, and I would recommend that if you can focus for a number of weeks on studying, it would very helpful for you. In other words, no work, no TV, not a lot of music or media, coz these are the elements that would give you distraction, and tend to make you forget what you need to memorize.
Yes, I said memorize, due to the fact that you would need a lot of memorization for definitions and real estate terminology. Not only for the facts presented in your textbooks, but also, for the formulas that you need to know to solve few mathematical problems.
This book has FIVE mock-tests; they are specifically designed to test your ability in answering the core questions, which would be expected to come to you in the State License test. If you need more information about the schedule for the CA state Real Estate Exam, you can go to their website.
Many questions will not only test the information written in your textbooks, but also it would test your ability in analyzing different situations, and applying the principles which were given to you during your studies. Trust me, if you do everything, in this book, exactly as it is written here, you would have a very high chance in passing this test.
Keep in mind that, you would need to sit to your chair for three hours and 15 minutes, there will be no time for revising all the questions, you would be lucky to finish all of them in the first place, since they are 150 questions. You are allowed to go to the rest room but it will be cut down from your time, unless you have health reasons, and applied for exception, long before the test.
They are multiple choice type of questions, but the tricky part about them is that mostly the choices are long, so you need to read carefully, and to analyze each word, to be sure exactly what it meant. Real Estate terminology, which is listed in the back of your book, is also important to be studied very well.
Here’s a nice joke I heard lately, since we talk about real estate:
Salesman: This computer will cut your workload by 50%. Property Manager: That’s great, I’ll take two of them.
