You are preparing to write the exam for Real Estate as a Professional Career and are wondering whether you need to memorize the conversion table and other formulas.
The above question was recently posted on the College’s online education forum, accessed through students’ My Portfolio accounts.
The answer to the question is no, you need not memorize the conversion table or the formulas. The exams are generated through the Automated Exam Administration System (AXIS), so each student receives a unique test containing randomized questions selected from the College’s database. Where required, the student will receive conversion factors, formulas, and samples of standard forms. A student may bring to the exam a calculator that does not save text.
The online education forum is one way the College provides support to students. Students seeking clarification on course content submit queries and answer other students’ queries. The forums are moderated by College curriculum staff to ensure the answers provided are correct.
