The North Carolina real estate exam is a two part test. One hundred questions are the "national" portion of the test. Forty questions are the "state" portion of the North Carolina real estate exam. You have to pass both portions.
Last month, October 2018, fifty real estate license applicants took the "national" portion of the North Carolina real estate exam for the second or third or fourth or fifth time. They all paid $164 for the privilege. Thirty five of them passed. That is 70%. That is encouraging. Last month, three hundred and eight test applicants took the "state" portion of the North Carolina real estate exam for the second or third or fourth time. One hundred and seventy eight of these real estate applicants passed. They all paid $164 for the opportunity to try. That is 58%.

Did you notice that the repeat test takers are taking the state portion of the test more than the "national" portion? If you are soon taking the North Carolina real estate exam, here is a simple easy suggestion. Leave your textbook on the seat of your car. If you come back to your car with a failure notice in your hand, start thumbing through your textbook and making notes of questions that you saw on your test that you did not know the answer to. If you saw a question about how many members of the NCREC must be a real estate broker, do not go back again (at $164 per) without knowing the answer to that question. Does that make sense?
Here is another test taking tip. Go to www.ncreexam.com . Take my practice exam. If you have already passed the "national" portion, just take the "state " portion of my practice exam. You should be passing this with a 90%. If you are not, you are not ready for the real thing at $164 per experience.
Here is another exam taking tip. Read Appendix A in your textbook. Appendix A is also known as "The Comments" Appendix A is, at least, half of the "state" portion of the North Carolina real estate exam. Read it. Read every word of it. Read it ten times. It is not interesting reading. If you find it hard to read, I will read it to you on You Tube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iaPLEyKzX24 Here is a link to the first video. Listen to me read "The Comments" . If you have already taken the exam one or two times, you will recognize some of your questions. Make note. Lots of material on the "state" portion of the test comes right out of Appendix A. Read it before you pay $164.
The number one problem that real estate test applicants have is that they underestimate the North Carolina real estate exam. Don't do that. Fifty four per cent pass rate. What else do you need to know? This test is hard. This test is expensive. Study like you want to make 100% , not like you want to barely pass. Read your textbook.
