Features of Alabama Real Estate License Exam Prep (AL-RELEP):

National Principles & Law Key Point Review (45 pages)

Real Estate Math Key Formula Review & Practice (20 pages)

Alabama-Specific Laws and Practices (28 pages)

National Practice Tests  (500 questions) 

Alabama Practice Tests  (125 questions)

Alabama Sample Exam  (100 questions)

We know the real estate licensing exam can be tough, and very nerve-wracking to prepare for.  That’s why we created the Alabama Real Estate License Exam Prep (AL-RELEP) the way we did.  Since we have been managing real estate schools and developing curriculum for forty years, we know how all this works – or fails to work.

AL-RELEP is comprehensive in that it contains both key content review and testing practice.  And the text review is Alabama-specific – not just simplistic national content, but terse, relevant and accurate Alabama laws and regulations presented as a well-organized set of state ‘key point reviews’ ideal for pre-test memorization.  But let’s not dismiss the importance of the national content either.  AL-RELEP’s national key point reviews are a succinct compression of tested national principles and practices that comprise the national portion of state license exams from coast to coast. Our content is drawn from our own national textbook, Principles of Real Estate Practice – one of the most widely used principles textbooks in the country.  Finally, our national content, as well as our question selection, is further tailored to the state testing outline promulgated by AMP for Alabama.  Thus the breadth and depth of the law reviews and test questions reflect the topic emphasis of your state’s testing service and your Alabama license exam.

A word about the test questions… AL-RELEP’s testing practice section consists of ten national practice tests, five state practice tests, and one state exam sample test.  The practice tests are roughly 50 questions in length and the sample test is 100 questions.  The test questions are designed to cover the content covered by the law reviews – which reinforces your learning of the total body of information tested by your state exam.  The questions are direct, to the point, and designed to test your understanding.  When you have completed a given test, you can check your answers against the answer key in the appendix.  You may also note that each question’s answer is accompanied by a brief explanation, or “rationale” to further reinforce your understanding.
In the end, as you know, it’s all up to you. Unlike other publications, we are not going to tell you that using this book will guarantee that you pass your state exam. It still takes hard work and study to pass. But we have done our best here to get you ready. Following that, the most we can do is wish you the best of success in taking and passing your Alabama real estate exam. So good luck!!

Unlike existing textbooks written for law students on specific subjects impacting real estate transactions, Real Estate Law: Fundamentals for The Development Process uses "The Development Process" as a framework for understanding how the U.S. legal system regulates, facilitates, and generally impacts real estate transactions and their outcomes.

This book not only addresses the nature of specific legal issues directly relating to real estate transactions but also how those issues may best be identified and addressed in advance. This book breaks down the myriad of laws influencing the selection, acquisition, development, financing, ownership, and management of real estate, and presents them in context.

Readers of Real Estate Law will gain a practical understanding, from the perspective of a real property developer or real estate executive, investor, or lender, of:

how to identify potential legal issues before they arise;

when to involve a real estate attorney;

how to select an attorney with the appropriate, relevant experience; and

how to efficiently and economically engage and manage legal counsel in addressing real estate issues.

Written as a graduate-level text book, Real Estate Law comes with numerous useful features including a glossary of terms, chapter summaries, discussion questions, further reading, and a companion website with instructor resources. It is a resource of great value to real estate and finance professionals, both with and without law degrees, engaged in one aspect or another of real estate development and finance, who want to become more conversant in the legal issues impacting these transactions.
