The are many online providers of online real estate courses. Some of the providers offer PDF courses with tempting low prices. These type of courses have PDF files that must be downloaded and printed at home. There may be as many as 500 pages to print and read.
The online courses have made a significiant investment in preparing courses. In addition, the online courses provide the material in an easy to read and understand format. The online courses can be quickly completed without the use of a book or a sheaf of PDF sheets printed at home.
A PDF download puts the responsibility on the student to read the material and find the correct information. It's much like reading a text book from cover to cover. Not many people want to read a text book from cover to cover.
The online courses come close to simulating a teaching experience in that they summarize and present the important material. The first attempt pass rate is high.
Just wanted to let you know that I passed my exams. Thank you all for the support and encouragement. The course materials were rigorous and helpful and the practice exams really helped me get through the final exam.
