There are two portions of the exam. One is a national portion that is of course the same in every state and the second is a state portion that gets more specific with the needs of your state. Also, states can require you to pass certain courses and/or have a number of credit hours before sitting to take the exams.
The national portion consists of approximately 80 questions (as of date of this post) that include the following topics:
- Real Property Characteristics and Definitions
- Property Valuation
- Buyer and Seller Contracts and Relationships
- Federal Laws in Real Estate
- Financing the Transaction
- Property Management
- Brokerage Operations
- Real Estate Calculations
- and more…

This site was built to help everyone interested in a career in real estate. Whether you are preparing to sit for the exam or a seasoned professional we can all learn more and benefit from other people’s experience.
