An intro on using these materials and useful links

I'm excited that you are working toward a career in real estate! 

Many real estate students feel that after they complete their real estate pre-licensing courses, they need additional help to prepare for their test.

Knowing what to study and how to study for this test is tough!

Taking the real estate exam can be a stressful experience. Even though it has been 20 years since I took my first real estate exam in Ohio for the salesperson license, I still remember feeling like there was an overwhelming amount of material covered in such a short time!

The resources on my site will help you strengthen your knowledge and feel confident when you walk into the testing center. Getting a real estate license was one of the most rewarding decisions I've made in my life, and I hope you will love your real estate career as much as I have mine.
