Finally completed Course 3 exam on 17th, and I'm still recovering from the horror of the exam today, 5 days after...
There is not much to say except read the course material and pay special attention to the details, for example: we all know when signing APO, the person last signs the acceptance signs the acknowledgement, but the question will ask when signing APO, which is correct, witness signs besides seller/ buyer, sales representative initials besides the seller/ buyer, seller/buyer signings full name or seller/ buyer initial every change. They all seemed like the right answers at that time (at least to me. LOL)
COURSE 3 DEVILS in the DETAILS!!!
And plz don’t try to wing it. Speaking from personal experience, if exam for COURSE 1 and 2 had 30-40% common sense questions. Exam for COURSE 3 had about 5% for me.
Just to share a little bit of perspective, although Course 2 has abundant amount of course material to go over, I spent a lot more time on Course 3 because of the exam schedule and only got 88% compared to 97% for Course 2.
So that’s my 2 cents, good luck everyone!
Oh yes! Also be very familiar with rent rolls.
Hi, everyone I ran into a little road block and hope someone could help me understand :
In Course 3, Module 9, Lesson 7, Page 5
The answer states the First month and fourteen days, should it be just the first month as the landlord had indicated tenancy starts on May 1st>? (this is also unaccounted for in the calculation of the first and last.) or is the 14 days from April 17-May 1st agreed to be given to the tenant as a free-rent period?
I need some confirmation as of the possibility of suspension of Buyer Representation, course material stated the below:
For a buyer representation agreement, the following three types of changes are available: Amendment, Cancellation and assignment.
A buyer representation agreement can be cancelled but not suspended. A buyer representation agreement is usually not suspended as the buyer would simply state that they are not available to look at potential properties and, as the salesperson, you would respect their wishes.
If the above stands, that contradicts the existence of Form 304. Please correct me if my understanding is mistaken.
From what I've read, course 3 is the hardest!!!
Anyone want to partner up and be study buddys?
For course 1, I only found out about Passit after exam registration, I had 6 days and I went all in with Passit. May be it was the nerves with it being the first exam or maybe I just wasn’t ready… Absolutely terrified going in that exam room…
Now course 2, with a little experience under my belt I dare say… lol, after carefully studying the Course 2 study tips and strategies I made myself a study plan, I would write down key notes and power thru each of the segments then give 1-2 days for Passit MC and TERMinator (Rapid Recall was saved for the very end b/c it cannot be partitioned) While doing the Passit MC, I kept a spreadsheet, noting down the exact page where I had questions, number of times I got them wrong, and referring back to the text on top of reading the explanations given in the answers (for both right & wrong choices), further solidifying specific understanding.
Course 2 may come off intimidating because of the SUUUPEEER long list of study modules and lessons; it almost seems never ending… but just keep a schedule with strict deadlines and keep at it! Study your windows, doors, different kinds of roofs and structures in your neighborhood; Try to relate, let your imagination run wild! May be mom is a buyer client, dad is a seller customer and baby brother is looking to lease, etc, make things fun! (On my exam today, there were a ton of questions regarding clients/customer and zero structural and no math)
For me Course 2 was not just Course 2, it also forced me to utilize the famous Pomodoro Technique and incorporated The Ebbinghaus Forgetting Curve, without these 2 amazing helpers, I would prob. spend all my free time on animal crossing instead of studying and course 2 would truly be never ending.
Just when I was about to finish the course, Covid-19 happened, but I really do not want to go back to read everything again. So I stuck with Passit, made sure to spend 2-3 hours on the Study MCs and referring bk to the text at the end of the day, I also started doing the Rapid Recall at this time.
4 days prior to the scheduled exam, I turned to Test mode, 2 tests a day, referring back to the text all the same.
1 day prior to exam, I finally got around to the last tab – top 10, with all that down, I was sure I can ace the exam.
I seem to be in a sharing mode these 2 days, promise I’m done. Lol
Good luck! And stay safe!
Stayed up to get my grade, lol, felt like a centry had passed since this morning, but it was all worth it!
Round of applause to Passit!!! With out Passit, all those that was read and seen during the online course would be long gone. Thanks for keeping it fresh with the endless MC questions and T/F.
Thou I found the wording in the exam to be confusing at times, I guess with the abundent practice questions and references, the answer were imprinted in my head.
I also wanted to share abit about how I studied course 2, but I just can't keep my eyes open, another day. lol.
My experience with the Proctortrack exam
1. Do the onboarding quiz ASAP
Once the exam is registered with Humber, there will be several emails sent from ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’ one of them would be for ‘onboarding quiz’ do this ASAP, it takes time to be processed and approved (roughly 4 hours) and there are possibilities you will not pass the quiz in one attempt, so DO NOT wait till the last hours, also log in 30 min or so prior to the exam to perform additional environmental and identification checks.
2. Check email for updates and changes
I had done the onboarding quiz on 4/21 and was under the impression “everything is set, review, cram, and let’s kill it on the exam date”.
Come exam day morning, I found another email that was sent several days ago saying I have to re-do the onboarding quiz. With that note, my horrific morning started.
3. Clear the computer
To avoid mechanical malfunctions or just to speed things up, I gave mine a deep cleanse and moved nearly all files to the external hard drive.
4. Restart computer prior to the exam
After I was finally processed for the 2nd on-boarding with the help of Pranali from Chatbox, and connected with the online proctor, an additional validation had to be completed, same as the one done for the onboarding quiz, 360°video, in-front & behind the computer then the system froze when I was scanning in my ID, restarted several times and still the same... I had to restart the computer for the system to finally work properly.
5. Have a stand for your phone
The phone is required to be positioned with the front view camera looking at you and your screen with your face in the view. Find that angle so you don’t waste time during the exam. ( I had to put the phone to the bottom left corner of the desktop, the computer diagonal across, and to show my face I did most of the exam with my head on my fore-arm slouched on the desk.
6. Be patient
I did course 1 exam onsite at the Humber college exam room; I remember the experience to be straightforward and moving from question to question to be relatively swift. With the system today, I had to really wait for each question to load.
Finally: For Help
Chatbox on Proctortrack is the way to go! I tried calling 1-844-753-2020, left numerous voicemails, submitted 4+ tickets, no response, number of emails to email@example.com, and finally got a reply at 6:22 pm (over 2 hrs after the exam finish time), Chatbox on Proctortrack was the only method that had a response. How to get to the chatbox is shown in attachments, without Pranali’s help, I’m certain I would not be able to start my exam today.
I hope this helps.
Could someone please help me understand the term “survive and not merge”?
I see understand this in the swimming pool example, where buyer cannot properly examine the winterized pool and seller is to warranty the pool until spring when it can be tested and pay for necessary cost if it should arise.
However, I also see this term used for home appliances and basements, where the explanation details the seller will not warranty into the future. I understand the appliances should not be warranted into the future, but why use the term “survive and not merge”?
Thanks a million!
I'm having a hard time grasping the difference between the two, could some one please help clarify please.
