I get that question a lot. Or another way people ask it is they’ll say, “If I do A, B, and C, is that enough to pass?” It is impossible for me to answer this.
This is like asking, “If I start walking 30 minutes a day, is that enough to get to my desired weight?”
There are so many variables… What is your desired weight? How much do you weigh right now? What is your diet like now? There is no doubt that adding a 30-minute daily walk will help you. Also, that is enough for some people. But I don’t know if that is enough for you.
It’s the same when people ask how much they need to study for the state exam. How much real estate knowledge do you already have? How quickly can you retain things? How quickly can you understand new material? When you say you study for an hour, what do you do during that hour? How effective are your study habits?
I know that I studied more for the Florida sales associate state exam than I had studied for anything else in my life. For me, though, it was very important to pass the first time. Here’s what I did to study…
- I read every single word of the textbook, Florida Principles, Practice and Law
- I did every single practice question in the textbook and the Florida Real Estate Exam Manual.
- I had a recording of Ron Climer’s weekend review class, which I listened to twice.
I know that was enough studying for me because I passed the state exam the first time I took it. Your mileage may vary.
