How to Pass the Florida Broker Real Estate Exam

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with Aloha Kai Real Estate

Throughout the year hundreds upon hundreds of sales associates in Florida attempt to sit for and pass the Florida brokers real estate exam. It is no easy feat. I passed it and it was extremely difficult. It was also mentally and physically exhausting to say the least.

Some have asked me how or what they can do to pass the Florida Broker Real Estate Exam.

This is my advice:


1. Read and re-read then re-read the textbook. Memorize as much of it as you can. This is the best advice I can give to sales associates. It helped me pass the very rigorous Florida broker real estate exam.

I read the textbook prior to taking the required broker course. That was the first time I read it. I made it a point to read it a total of three times. This is partly due to the fact that English or rather Standard American English is not my first language so I read it a total of three times. I highly suggest.

My strategy was to understand the concepts, theories, and the LAW. I did not focus on practice exams which complicated my thoughts LOL

2. Check out the statistics. The Florida Department of Business and Professional Licensing posts the latest statistics on their website here. This will tell you how challenging it is.

For the month of August 2013 for first-time test takers out of 167 applicants, 88 passed while 79 failed. Or 53% passed while 47% failed.

For repeat test takers, out of 145 applicants 60 passed while 85 failed. Or 41% passed while 59% failed.

Therefore do not feel bad if you failed the first time or the 10th time!

My theory is that they purposefully make this exam extremely difficult to weed out those who really want to be real estate brokers... from those who do not.

Which brings me to my third piece of advice...

 

3. Never give up! If you want it badly... try it til you pass it. I know some people who took 8 and 10 times respectively. The main thing is that you pass.

If you have any questions or concerns about the Florida broker real estate exam or just want to vent just how difficult it is... feel free to contact me. 

I also passed the State of Washington managing broker exam on my first try so if you would like to know about that one... feel free to contact me :) I took the State of Washington Managing Broker reciprocity exam. That one consisted of a handbook of 61 pages of their state real estate laws. They told me to read it then sit for the exam. THAT was hard LOL

Mahalo e Gabrielle. It is a very tough exam. One of my friends who recently took it did not pass it on her third try. I told her to keep trying... It's so difficult but it can be done.

In state of Texas you must have minimum 900 hours of MCE and minimum 4 years of being active agent before they let you take the broker's exam.

Hi Gary. I thought so too. It was much more difficult than I thought. Glad I overprepared. Congratulations for passing it too.
