If you’re reading this, then you’re probably trying to decide on which school program to use to get your license. For someone who doesn’t know the details of the state exam, the study process, the differences between schools and their programs, this process can be quite confusing.
Your “goal” as student is going to be to find the school and program that is going to make it the most convenient for you to study, give you an easy process to follow, give you the best chance of passing the state exam on the first try and give you the best price for what you receive.
SO now I’m going to try to help you achieve your GOAL!
IMPORTANT for you to know, sometimes nearly 50% of those taking the state exam, fail on the first try.
Why does this happen? 2 reasons: Lack of Study and a Low Quality Program
IMPORTANT, If you fail on the first try, then you have to reschedule the state exam and wait another 4 to 6 weeks, pay an additional application fee and restudy everything since all the subject matter and vocabulary you had studied is no longer fresh in memory.
So let’s solve this potential problem;
We believe with 100% certainty that we have the best program for you to accomplish your GOAL and present a program far superior then any other!
1. The Qualification Courses that are required to complete in order to schedule a testing date to take your state exam are only pre-requisite courses and are not meant to actually prepare you for the state exam.
PROBLEM, these qualification course textbooks have limited information geared towards the state exam. Some textbooks may have none at all. The main exception is the Principles Course which has the most information pertinent to the state exam, but even then it would be impossible for a student to decipher what they would need to study and what they would not. Point being, we help save the student countless hours of time by not having then study information that will not be presented on the state exam.
Now in your venture to compare schools, I would like you to try to find a school that has anything in a booklet form that provides information focused to what’s going to be on the state exam.
You will find that most of them don’t! Why? We don’t know. Many add a Math Handbook (very few questions on state exam pertaining to any math) a Career Handbook (useless in helping pass your state exam)
So now you are left with the qualification course books and their information to use to study (over 1350+ pages of small print).
We are the ONLY school we know of that has created a focused Exam Review Guide (178-page outline form) that has all the information focused to what’s going to be on the state exam and in the 7 major topic areas you will be tested on.
This makes our program far more focused to the state exam than any other, plus keeps our students from wasting their time studying information they don’t need!
2. We are completely focused on the California Real Estate Sales Agent and Brokers Exam. You will notice that many of the schools you will find in an online search offer programs in all 50 states and in addition offer programs for Appraisers, Insurance, Contractors licenses, etc.
With that said, How would it be possible for them to focus on any particular state or any one particular career program? It’s probably not!!
Since our focus is 100% towards creating a program to help you pass the California Real Estate State Exam and nothing else, we are going to be able to give you the best chances possible of passing on the first try! Take note, this has been our specialty since our family started with what may have been the first school approved by the Bureau of Real Estate in 1941.
3. The Top Instructor, D. Sheldon Schwartz known as “The Professor” has been teaching longer than any real estate instructor in the field.
For over 50 years he has taught all over the state, debriefed students and writes and updates all of our programs.
Ask yourself this question, If you wanted to learn how to play basketball, would you rather be taught by Michael Jordan or a High School Coach? Point being, We have the best!
4. Check for yourself, most of the schools don’t even offer a DVD and/or Video Presentation in their programs.
Don’s presentation has been placed on video, so you will get the benefits of both a live classroom situation as well as the repetition by utilizing a home study program.
Think about how easy this process will be, Simply put in the video, watch and learn from the Top Instructor in the State. He also uses our 178 page Exam Review Guide to teach from, so you will simply use it to follow along.
To accompany our program, Don makes himself personally available by phone to answer all students questions throughout the entire program.
5. We offer more study materials and options. Lets talk about convenience. If you have more ways to study, wouldn’t that give you better chances at passing your state exam as well?
Not only do we provide the most complete online study program “POWERPREP ONLINE” ™ we also add the option of adding all the hardcopy materials to the program, such as the DVD, Exam Review Guide, Practice Exams and Audio CD.
6. We are the only school that includes in their program a Lightning Review CD
The Lightning Review CD has the top 80 minutes of the most important information students should review right before their state exam or listen to on the day of the state exam.
7. We have the best prices and overall value for what you receive.
We have specifically researched the most visible schools on an online search. We looked at their prices, content of the program, type of instruction and experience. We then developed a pricing structure that would give our program the most value. We had the option of stripping our program down even further to give even a lower price, however we wanted to make sure we gave our students everything they need to give them the best opportunity of passing their state exam on the first try. You may be able to find a lower price, however you’ll also most likely find that their program has much less content. You will find the price of our program is extremely low for what you actually receive.
8. We have the best support.
If you have a question or problem, we offer many ways to get help, with access to our Customer Service, Head Counselor, Head Instructor and Live Chat Support who can point you in the right direction when needed.
9. We are so confident in our program we offer an unmatched Guarantee.
This guarantee pays our students their state exam fee if the fail. It may sound pretty crazy… however since we have began offering this guarantee, we have handed out very few refunds. We believe those few who have failed, would have been most likely due to lack of study time, which unfortunately we have no control over.
10. We now offer a new “Unique” and “Exclusive” Program that will give you an added EDGE on passing your state exam.
Over the extended period of time of offering our online preparation program, many students have mentioned that they felt it would be helpful if they could somehow get an audio version of our Power Review Video so they could listen to it while driving. Our Head Instructor along with our management team decided to take a sampling of some of our students to get their input and it soon became clear that we definitely needed to implement an audio based program. We discovered most students had full time jobs, children to care for, daily errands, appointments, weekend activities and a multitude of other tasks that turned out to be so time consuming that it severely limited the time they had available to successfully complete the study process. Our DRIVE & PREP is totally “Unique” and “Exclusive” to our school and our students are now able to preserve their normal lifestyles, simply by now being able to utilize time normally wasted while driving,and use it to properly prepare for their state exams. The course consists of nearly 14 hours of jammed packed audio information and is currently the only program that allows you to “Study While You Drive”.
