COURSE NAME: Real Estate Principles

TEXT BOOK NAME: California Real Estate Principles

AUTHOR: We will be using the most recent edition of the textbooks published by Walt Huber's Educational Textbook Company, Inc.

PUBLISHER: Educational Textbook Company, Inc.

COST: $80 for ordering a single course. {This cost includes the price of the textbook.}

COURSE DESCRIPTION: This edition of California Real Estate Principles is an ideal introductory text for beginning real estate students and an excellent study guide for those taking the California real estate license exam! The textbook covers all matters related to the ownership and transfer of real property, from deposit receipt to completed escrow, and beyond. The author has made the latest changes specifically to address new information that students are required to know.

DELIVERY METHOD: Text book will be provided and the exam will be administered online.

REFUND POLICY: All tuition and fees paid for the course are due and refundable when: (a) the course of instruction is discontinued by the school, preventing a student from completing the course; OR (b) the enrollment of student was procured because of any misrepresentation in advertising, promotion materials of the school, or representation made by an owner or employee of the school. All refunds will be completed within 30 days after the effective date of enrollment termination.

VALIDATION REQUIREMENTS: Our authentication system incorporates a mechanism for preventing fraud by ensuring that the student registered for the course is engaged in the course material. During course enrollment, students create a personal registration profile by entering personal information on a secure page so that the provider may process certification. The required information may include driver's license number, address, and form of payment. During registration, the system also prompts the user for additional personal validation information used during the course: "How many doors does your vehicle have?" / "How did you renew your driver's license last?" / etc.

Randomly, the user is prompted with a personal validation question at several points during the course; these questions are based on the answers provided by the student during registration. Additionally, the questions are timed and must be answered correctly for the trainee to proceed with the course. If the question supplied is incorrect, the course is temporarily suspended and the trainee is prompted to call the provider to explain why they failed validation. Their information is verified by a trainer who can then remotely unlock the course to allow the student to proceed with the coursework. If this personal information is not verified, the provider will suspend the student from any further access, refund any tuition payments collected and take the appropriate administrative enforcement actions. This validation sequence is enforced randomly on multiple occasions upon entering, taking and exiting the course.


COURSE CONTENT / TIME LIMITS: Each home-study course consists of spending a minimum of 45 hours reading and studying the course textbook, taking the non-graded chapter review quizzes, and passing a final examination. The final examination can be taken a minimum of 18 days from the date the student has had access to the course materials. No two courses can be completed in less than five weeks. Students must spend a minimum of 2.5 weeks studying each course. The maximum time students have to complete a course is one year from the date of registration. If students fail the final examination, they can take an alternate final examination one time. However, students must wait a minimum of another 18 days studying the course materials before they can re-take the final examination. If students fail the final examination two times, they will need to re-enroll in the course and pay the enrollment fee. If at that time, we are still using the same edition of the textbook, students will not be required to purchase a duplicate edition of the textbook., Inc. will deduct $16.50 from the enrollment fee. If, at the time of re-enrollment, we are using a more recent edition of the text, students will be required to pay the full enrollment fee and will receive the updated edition of the text.

FINAL EXAMINATION: The final exam is open-book and consists of 100 multiple choice questions. Students are allowed 1 hour and 40 minutes to complete the final exam, and need to score a minimum of 60% to pass. Students will take the final exam on the internet and will be issued a unique username and password. Internet final exams can not be printed or downloaded and the exam will automatically time-out at 1 hour and 40 minutes (or 100 minutes). Under no circumstances shall the final exam be furnished directly to the students.

COURSE COMPLETION CERTIFICATES / RECORDS: Course completion certificates will be issued immediately upon passing the final examination (to be printed by the student). Records of course completion certificates will be maintained indefinitely to allow students to receive a duplicate certificate if needed.

PROBLEMS / COMPLAINTS: Persons seeking to resolve problems or complaints should contact, Inc. at the address or telephone number above or visit the page.

DISCLOSURE STATEMENT: Private providers of pre-license statutory real estate courses must obtain course approval from the California Department of Real Estate (DRE). As part of the approval process, the DRE reviews the course materials only. The DRE does not qualify the school or course provider. In addition, there is no regulatory oversight of private pre-license course providers who offer courses or programs costing $500 or less. For courses or programs over $500, qualification by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education is required, in addition to DRE course approval. As a result, if a course provider offering a course costing $500 or less fails to deliver the educational course/program as represented, a student's monetary remedy is to seek redress in Small Claims Court. Students are cautioned to fully understand the education course/program offered by the provider before enrolling or registering. A list of pre-license statutory courses approved by the DRE can be found on the DRE Web site at under DRE Records.

DRE DISCLAIMER STATEMENT: This course is approved for pre-license education credit by the California Department of Real Estate. However, this approval does not constitute an endorsement of the views or opinions which are expressed by the course sponsor, instructors, authors, or lecturers.

PLEASE BE ADVISED: The California Department of Real Estate (DRE) encourages salesperson and broker exam applicants to mark the "Self Schedule" box on the Salesperson Exam Application (RE 400A), Broker Exam Application (RE 400B), Salesperson Combination Exam/License (RE 435), or Broker Combination Exam/License (RE 436) when submitting these document to the Department. This "Self Schedule" option allows for the Department to notify an applicant when his or her application has been fully qualified and is ready to be self scheduled for an exam date using our eLicensing system on our website, The eLicensing system provides greater flexibility when choosing exam dates, offers same day scheduling provided that space is available, and allows the applicant to print a barcoded exam schedule and admittance notice.
