The real estate exam places significant emphasis on vocabulary and key concepts. Purchase MRI’s study flashcards or create your own with essential terms, and consider using resources like a comprehensive list of real estate terms & definitions. Mastering these terms is crucial not only for the exam but for your future career as a real estate professional.

When tackling the exam, start with questions you find easy and gradually move to more challenging ones. Skip questions you’re unsure about and come back to them later. Trust your initial answers, and don’t second-guess yourself.

4. Time Management

The exam is timed, so manage your time wisely. Don’t spend too long on a single question. Use the skip-and-return strategy to maximize efficiency.
