    If you want to pass the exam, read this book

    This book is very current with respect to recent real estate trends and financing. Occasionally, I had to resort to the glossary to get a better understanding of a term being discussed in the book. It has 200 excellent sample exam questions as well as a good glossary section. It even covers ways to overcome test anxiety. The author does state the exam questions are based on National criteria, therefore, State specific regulations and laws may vary. If you buy this book, study and use it, you should be able to pass the exam, first try.

    Good Overview

    Review: Believe it or not, this book may not just be good for those preparing to take their real estate exams; it may actually be good for consumers as well. In this day and age, consumers could benefit from an overview of real estate this book gives. The book is comprehensive, and is particularly helpful in reviewing certain skills needed for the test. The book does a good job at reviewing math and critical thinking skills. Perhaps the book falls a little short in the "promise" department. The fact that each state has its own tests makes the promise of passing it on the first try a bit disingenuous. That said, the text does offer good sample questions - though sometimes it does feel like a "one size fits all" text. Perhaps there could be a little more about Real Estate ethics particularly in light of the latest issues in our economy.

    Passing Your Real Estate Sales License Exam on the First Attempt

    While only four chapters of Lambert's book focus primarily on the fundamentals of real estate principles, those 107 pages explain clearly and concisely the necessary steps to pass a real estate exam. Areas of law, finance, appraisal, and real estate practices are thoroughly examined.

    The subtitle ("Everything you need to know explained simply") appropriately defines the contents of this book, especially the two chapters devoted to preparing for the exam. Test preparation is often neglected, but Lambert's book takes an in-depth look at this important topic. Additionally, the book has two sample tests to check your understanding.

    Most importantly, Lambert's book provides special features that ensure the reader will successfully pass the real estate license test. Case studies spread throughout the book offer insight and first-hand experience directly related to real estate from experts in the field. There is also a math review to refresh basic skills and reinforce those needed on the exam. Finally, Lambert has created a user friendly glossary allowing for easy access to key words and concepts.

    Good Resource

    This book will help you on your path to preparing for a real estate sales license exam. But don't expect it to take you 100% of the way. The book helps you locate further resources to get you through the local state variations of these exams. So while it is not a one-stop resource for the exam - it does help you determine if this is a career area you are even interested in and lays out pretty clearly what to expect for the exam.

    Written for those who have been out of school and the test-taking mode, this book provides sample real estate exams and helpful tips for test-taking in general. I found some of the hints pretty basic - but then I'm using these math equations in my job daily. If I put myself in someone's shoes who hasn't - the math reviews would be an extremely helpful starting point. There's a solid glossary and a lot of resource links for those looking for a study/review aid. If you are purchasing a home - this is also a good tool to understand the process and the terms you will come in contact with. Everything from Real Estate Law, to Practices and Principles and even Mortgages are covered.
