Features of Illinois Real Estate License Exam Prep (IL-RELEP): National Principles & Law Key Point Review Real Estate Math Key Formula Review & Practice Illinois-Specific Laws and Regulations Key Point Review National Practice Tests (500 questions) Illinois Practice Tests (125 questions) Illinois 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 Illinois Real Estate License Exam Prep (IL-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. IL-RELEP is comprehensive in that it contains both key content review and testing practice. And the text review is Illinois-specific – not just simplistic national content, but terse, relevant and accurate Illinois 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. IL-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 Illinois. Thus the breadth and depth of the law reviews and test questions reflect the topic emphasis of your state’s testing service and your Illinois license exam. A word about the test questions… IL-RELEP’s testing practice section consists of ten national practice tests, three 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 Illinois real estate exam. So good luck!! For students looking for an Illinois principles textbook, we also publish Principles of Real Estate Practice in Illinois.

In Illinois it is the Division of Professional Regulation DPR and the Auction Advisory Board that administer auctioneer licensing. according to the Auction License Act [225 ILCS 407/5-10] an auction license is necessary if a person or entity who, for another, for a fee, compensation, commission, or any other valuable consideration at auction or with the intention or expectation of receiving valuable consideration by the means of or process of an auction or sale at auction or providing an auction service, offers, negotiates, or attempts to negotiate an auction contract, sale, purchase, or exchange of goods, chattels, merchandise, personal property, real property, or any commodity that may be lawfully kept or offered for sale by or at auction. An auctioneer may be self-sponsored or may be sponsored by another licensed auctioneer or auction firm. However, he/she must be at least 18 year of age, have attained a high school diploma or equivalent, and have personally passed an examination in order to earn the license.We give you knowledge information relevant to the exam specification. To be able to succeed in the real exam, you'll need to apply your earned knowledge to the question scenarios. Many of the exam questions are written to be less straight forward. They tend to be framed within the context of short scenarios. An advice: Do NOT rely on a single source for exam preparation. To secure exam success, always use multiple sources and read as much as possible!

Leider liebt sie Rapmusik, das Frauenbild: grauenvoll. Leider liest sie sehr gerne Fashion-Magazine, das Frauenbild: ebenfalls erschreckend. Und ihre Lieblingsfarbe ist leider: pink. In einer Zeit, in der Barack Obama sich als Feminist bezeichnet und sogar Modeimperien den Schriftzug in großer Zahl auf T-Shirts drucken, wahrscheinlich keine gute Idee. Feminismus ist chic geworden und angekommen in der Popkultur. Aber was kann guter Feminismus heute wirklich sein? In ihrem hochgelobten Essayband sprengt Roxane Gay das ideologische Korsett eines guten und starren Feminismus und erklärt sich selbst ironisch zum Bad Feminist – stimmgewaltig, bestechend klug und fern jeder Ideologie unterzieht sie unsere Gegenwart einer kritischen Analyse und zeigt, wie man alles auf einmal sein kann: eine der bedeutendsten Feministinnen der Gegenwart und dabei definitiv nicht perfekt.

Von den Bergen Idahos nach Cambridge – der unwahrscheinliche »Bildungsweg« der Tara Westover. Tara Westover ist 17 Jahre alt, als sie zum ersten Mal eine Schulklasse betritt. Zehn Jahre später kann sie eine beeindruckende akademische Laufbahn vorweisen. Aufgewachsen im ländlichen Amerika, befreit sie sich aus einer ärmlichen, archaischen und von Paranoia und Gewalt geprägten Welt durch – Bildung, durch die Aneignung von Wissen, das ihr so lange vorenthalten worden war. Die Berge Idahos sind Taras Heimat, sie lebt als Kind im Einklang mit der grandiosen Natur, mit dem Wechsel der Jahreszeiten – und mit den Gesetzen, die ihr Vater aufstellt. Er ist ein fundamentalistischer Mormone, vom baldigen Ende der Welt überzeugt und voller Misstrauen gegenüber dem Staat, von dem er sich verfolgt sieht. Tara und ihre Geschwister gehen nicht zur Schule, sie haben keine Geburtsurkunden, und ein Arzt wird selbst bei fürchterlichsten Verletzungen nicht gerufen. Und die kommen häufig vor, denn die Kinder müssen bei der schweren Arbeit auf Vaters Schrottplatz helfen, um über die Runden zu kommen. Taras Mutter, die einzige Hebamme in der Gegend, heilt die Wunden mit ihren Kräutern. Nichts ist dieser Welt ferner als Bildung. Und doch findet Tara die Kraft, sich auf die Aufnahmeprüfung fürs College vorzubereiten, auch wenn sie quasi bei null anfangen muss ... Wie Tara Westover sich aus dieser Welt befreit, überhaupt erst einmal ein Bewusstsein von sich selbst entwickelt, um den schmerzhaften Abnabelungsprozess von ihrer Familie bewältigen zu können, das beschreibt sie in diesem ergreifenden und wunderbar poetischen Buch. » Befreit wirft ein Licht auf einen Teil unseres Landes, den wir zu oft übersehen. Tara Westovers eindringliche Erzählung — davon, einen Platz für sich selbst in der Welt zu finden, ohne die Verbindung zu ihrer Familie und ihrer geliebten Heimat zu verlieren — verdient es, weithin gelesen zu werden.« J.D. Vance Autor der »Hillbilly-Elegie«
