It is expensive to underestimate the North Carolina real estate exam. The North Carolina real estate exam is in two parts. There are eighty questions on the "national" portion of the exam, There are forty questions on the "North Carolina" portion of the exam. You have to pass both portions to get a North Carolina real estate broker license. Lots of real estate broker applicants pass the national portion but fail the "North Carolina" portion. Those real estate license applicants will be taking the "North Carolina" portion again. They will pay $164 for that experience.
In March, two hundred and ninety applicants took the "North Carolina" portion for the second or third or fourth time. One hundred and seventy five passed. That is 58%. They all paid $164.
It is not a secret what is on this test. The North Carolina Real Estate Commission publishes a booklet titled " Real Estate Licensing in North Carolina" . Here is a video explaining this more thoroughly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZFPZGo_DJ4&t=18s On page sixteen of this booklet, it tells you exactly what is on the North Carolina real estate exam.
Over half the questions on the "North Carolina" portion of the test come from Appendix A in your textbook. To go pay $164 to take this test without reading Appendix A is foolish. Appendix A is also called "The Comments". If you walk out of the exam with a failure notice in your hand, ( You passed the "national". You failed the "North Carolina" portion. ) you need to open your textbook before you crank up the car and start reading "The Comments" and marking things that you saw on your test that you took a few minutes ago. You will see those same things next time. Don't go back ( at $164 per try) without knowing how many members of the NCREC must be real estate brokers. Does that make sense?

If you find "The Comments" too boring to read, I have read it for you on You Tube. Here is a link to that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iaPLEyKzX24 There are seven videos of me reading "The Comments". Read it. Listen to me read it or pay $164 to try again. Understand agency. It is fifteen questions on the exam. Read "The Comments".
