As the second largest state in the country, Texas is a complicated placeThere are hundreds of cities, towns, and municipalities as well as dozens of different environmentsThe state boasts plains in the north, tall pine forests in the east, and deserts in the westIt is hard to fully understand the state, its places, and its lawsThat is why the state’s real estate exam can be so difficult. The process for passing the Texas real estate exam begins long before the test itselfAnybody interested in becoming a real estate agent in the state must first past a series of courses designed to teach prospective test-takers the ins and outs of the businessThese courses help teach the individual the ins and outs of contract law, ethics, and the requirements of the real estate agent versus the brokerCourses can be held at many different levels and are often offered onlineThey can be completed in a matter of a few weeks, but it is not recommended to complete the courses as quickly as possibleInformation from these pre-license courses make up the bulk of the questions from the testYou will not be able to use books or course materials during the test itself; only scratch paper, pencils, and a simple calculator will be allowed. Next, the test itself is a demanding processIt has two major parts: a national section and a Texas sectionThe first section is dependent on the test you are taking and once you finish the first section, you cannot go backBoth sections have questions about the responsibilities of an agent, the particulars of contracts, and the ethics of real estateThere may be complex math questions as wellMany questions may touch on obscure rules and regulations that were covered in the course materialsThe test consists of 110 questions and must be completed in 150 minutes. So exactly how hard is this exam? It can be challenging if you are not preparedMany of the questions are not in the realm of “general knowledge” and would not be known by the average person if he or she did not studyTexas itself can be a challenging state to try and become licensed inIt has such a large body of land use and real estate laws that it can be challenging to navigate through them all in one examSome cities are notorious for their unique real estate regulationsIn Houston, for instance, there are no traditional zoning laws, which means that normal real estate rules for other major cities do not apply. If you are planning on taking the real estate exam, listen to the most common test-taking adviceGet plenty of sleep before the exam and make sure to eat breakfastTake the test slowly and deliberately and review your work before moving forwardYou may feel that you are not ready or have not studied closely enoughIn this case, there are numerous options available to youMany websites offer Texas real estate pre-license courses online that will help drill down the most relevant detailsSome companies have old copies of test questions that they can use to see what details are most likely to be discussed on future testsThese companies create exclusive courses that allow a user to repeat and retain the information that will most likely be on the testAs a supplement to traditional required courses, online real estate training in Texas can be much more helpful in giving possible test-takers the tools and information they need to feel competent taking the Texas real estate exam.
