YOU MADE IT TO THE BOTTOM (of this quiz).  Would you like to take another?

State Law     Math     Topic Du Jour     I had so much fun on this quiz, I’d like to do it again!

NO! I want some explanations!            I had so much fun, I’d like you to design my website!

 

If you found this site to be helpful (and you’re not too mad at me), PLEASE pass this on to other real estate students and instructors and have them pass the word on to others.  Other than the temporary urge to throw your computer across the room (which always passes before you actually do it), this can make things easier for everyone; helping your fellow students pass and improving your instructor’s statistics (Did you notice I emphasized “Please”?)
