What Is The Arizona Real Estate Exam Like?
Last Update: January 5th, 2022
The Arizona Real Estate Exam is not as intimidating as it sounds. With proper preparation and knowing what is expected of you, you’ll have no problem passing. In this article, we’ll go over a typical testing day for a student and what it is like.
What To Bring To The Arizona Real Estate Exam
Arriving to your exam appointment prepared, is the first step in a successful exam experience. Salesperson candidates who have completed an Arizona real estate license course must bring:
-The Prelicensure Education Certificate (from your school)
-A calculator (suggested) which must meet certain requirements that can be found in the Pearson Vue Candidate Handbook
When Should I Arrive?
You should arrive at your exam 30 minutes prior to your exam time. This will give the administrators time to check you in and take your photograph. In addition, they will have you review and sign the Candidate Rules Agreement, which covers the rules of the exam.
What Is The Exam Like?
Once at your computer, you will be given the opportunity to take a tutorial to learn how the testing software works. This tutorial does not count towards your allotted examination time. However, once the student views the first actual test question, the timer begins.
The Arizona Real Estate Exam (salesperson) consists of 180 graded questions plus 15 pretest questions and a time limit of 300 minutes (5 hours). A note on pretest questions. These questions are questions that are being considered for future versions of the exam, but are not graded. They are not marked as pretest and you will most likely not notice the difference.
Exam Scoring And What It Takes To Pass
Your score will be presented to you at the end of the exam, which must be at least 75% to pass. If you pass the exam, then you will be given a license application to continue with the process of becoming licensed. If you do not pass, don’t lose all hope! After a period of at least 24 hours, you can reapply to take it again. If you don’t pass the second time, you can schedule an ‘exam review appointment’ before the next attempt. The cost to retake the exam does not change from the initial price.
As expressed earlier, it is achievable to pass by having confidence in what’s expected before & on the day of the exam. Accomplishing the exam is a great start to a successful career in Arizona Real Estate. Good luck!
