Broker Interview Tools 

Deciding on a broker to affiliate with (work with) can be overwhelming -- Different companies offer different commission splits, agent support, marketing support, training/workshops, etc. Knowing what questions to ask in an interview can be crucial to making the best decision. To help, we have developed several interview tools including a list of 20-questions to ask and a list of important things to consider. To download these tools, click on the links below. 

"20 Questions to Ask a Broker/Manager"* -- Download HERE
"Other Things to Consider When Choosing a Broker"* -- Download HERE

These materials are not intended to recruit, induce, encourage, or solicit licensees for membership or affiliation with any organization, nor are they meant to advertise the merits of any organization. We encourage licensees and licensee candidates to carefully interview and compare brokers before making their own decision on an organization with which to affiliate.   


Additional Review for Students

For students having trouble passing the Final Review Test, End of Course Test or the PSI Licensing Exam, we recommend that you take some extra time to revisit the course materials and better prepare yourself to pass both the end of course test AND the licensing exam at PSI. Below are suggestions and strategies to better prepare you for success.

 

Review Your Scores from the Final Test Review

In class you were given a Final Test Review – If you haven’t already, go back and check your answers (The answers are in the Answer Key at the back of your binder). You will notice that the Answer Key lists the chapters where the answers for each of the questions are taken from. After grading your test, review the Answer Key to see if there is a pattern that shows a weakness or strength in each of the chapters, then go back and re-study the chapters you did not do as well at. Do not go back and memorize the questions and answers on this test, as they will not be presented the same way, using the same words, as the questions on your end of course exam and the licensing exam at PSI. Instead focus on learning the concepts that the questions cover. 


DOWNLOAD Additional Review Questions

Our Additional Review Questions packet contains new questions that are not included in the binder to help you study and review. The answer key for these questions is in the back of the packet. Download the packet HERE.

Exam Smart

The CBG School HIGHLY recommends Exam Smart, which is a company that offers software designed to prep students to pass the real estate exam. It is a computerized bank of 400+ questions covering both the national and state portions of the exams. We are not affiliated with Exam Smart and we do not benefit from your use of the program -- However, we have found that the Exam Smart program has been extremely helpful for many of our students. The cost for the program is $49, which is less expensive than paying to take the licensing exam a second time. For more information visit their website at: www.ExamSmart.com 


Kindle Book with Prep Questions

“2018 Missouri AMP Real Estate Exam Prep Questions & Answers” is a great digital book that can be downloaded and read on a laptop, tablet or phone using the Kindle app. It has a ton of great prep questions for less than $10. You can purchase the book from Amazon HERE

 

Test Taking Strategies

Here are some test taking strategies that you may find helpful. You should review these strategies before taking samples tests as well as the end of course test and the PSI licensing exam: 

    • Take your time -- Read slowly -- Do not rush. If it helps, run a finger under the words as you read and reread. Read the question then read the first choice… Then read the question again and read the second choice… etc.
    • Remember that you are looking for the BEST answer, not necessarily the only right answer. So, read ALL the choices before choosing the BEST answer.
    • Think of each of the multiple choices as a series of true/false statements – Read the question plus each individual choice and respond as true OR false.
    • Pay attention to very important key words in either the question or the choices that can change the best answer. Examples:  usually, none, always, never, except, automatically, must, all, all but, only, any, the best, the least, etc.
    • Skip the questions you don’t feel confident answering when you go through the exam the first time and save them for your final review. You may find another question that answers or sheds insight. If you go ahead and guess at the question on your first time through, the PSI test program will not leave it marked as an unanswered question to go back to and you may have difficulty finding it again.
    • If you start to feel overwhelmed, take a mini-break.  Get up and get a drink of water, stretch, look out a window or at a distant wall for 30 to 60 seconds. Take another break if you want/need one. Two breaks of two to three minutes will not cost you much time. The goal is to pass the test, not to get out first or stay the longest.
    • When going through the final round, answer ALL questions before ending. On questions you are unsure of, try to eliminate answers you think are least likely and choose from the remaining answers. Narrow it down the best you can and, give your best guess.
    • Don’t go back and change your answers unless you realize you misread or are absolutely sure. Often your first guess is your best guess.

 

Good luck with your further studies and testing and please keep us posted on your progress.
