REX-US-CA-Real_Estate-Pre is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 46703.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved how it broke up the content and gave lots of time to read the book and go through online part. I enjoyed having the physical book and being able to take notes on it and/or highlight it. I never felt rushed, I took my time read things twice sometimes and just kept going consistently.

How does "INSTRUCTOR Q&A" work in an online learning package?

Asked by: dr. egan
Instructor Q&A are optional interactive webinars held about 40 times per month. Some sessions are focused on specific topics while others are ‘bring your questions’ sessions. All topics are national topics, which is about 80% of all real estate concepts, so they are relevant to students from all our states.

Hello!  I would like to know if there is a way to: - view the syllabus of the 135hr courses (I would like to map out my daily hours study work). - know how much time one should allow themselves to study post the 135hrs and prior to taking the exam.

Asked by: Linds
Each of our courses comes with a course syllabus that includes a timed outline that reflects how much time we expect a student to spend in each chapter, so you can plan out your time. You may need to plan additional review time outside of the chapter time. The time you spend between completing the courses and taking the state exam is usually determined by the wait time to get a seat to take the state exam.

I see Business Law is one of the courses required. If I took Business Law in my undergrad, would this be applicable? Or would I have to retake the course?

Asked by: erin8284
Business Law is one of the elective courses you need. You will have to get approval from the California Department of Real Estate for the course to count. Only the DRE can make that decision. https://www.dre.ca.gov/files/pdf/re4.pdf

i am just wanting to be a property manager, what wopuld be the best course

Asked by: caroline
You will need to take the two required courses, Principles and Practices. It is probably best to choose our Property Management course as your third, elective course. You will need to call customer service to make Property Management your third course.

I already took Business Law years ago while in school. Do I need to request my transcript to show that?

Asked by: jaso
There is a possibility depending upon the state’s requirements. We recommend confirming directly with your state’s real estate commision to find out if they do and what documentation they would need exactly.

What is the fastest time that someone can receive their license?

Asked by: jj313
In CA, they allow access to your exam after 18 days. With our program, and 18 days between 3 courses would mean you could be eligible to sit for the license exam within 54 days minimum. Please keep in mind CA DRE (Department of Real Estate) response time to confirm you are eligible (meaning you send them your completion certificates) is between 4-6 weeks on average.

Is there a time limit once you pay for the package and pass the exam ? is there conditions for the money back guarantee if failed ? Any mandatory requirements ? I am a single mum with a full time job, so my hands are full. 

Asked by: Vanessa
Your package will come with 3 courses, each 35 credit hours. You will have six months from registration to complete the first course. As soon as you finish the first course, the second course opens. You have six months from the day it opens to complete it. The third course follows the same process. Our Satisfaction Guarantee gives you seven days after purchase to decide if we are a good fit. If not you can get 100% back. The Pass or Don’t Pay Guarantee will refund your tuition if you fail the state licensing exam the first time you take it. To qualify for that you have to complete all 3 courses and complete the exam prep in our package (only 3 packages have exam prep). You should check the DRE website to make sure you meet their minimum requirements for licensing.
