Course Materials

The following materials are provided by VanEd:

  • The VanEd Study Guide (online eBook)
  • The reference book Modern Real Estate Practice by Fillmore W. Galaty, Wellington J. Allaway, and Robert C. Kyle


Exams are taken online and may be taken multiple times. All practice / unit exams must be passed before accessing the final exam in that same course. A greater number of multiple-choice test questions are created to help you feel comfortable with the testing methodology. If you do not receive a passing score, you can only attempt the same course final exam twice in one day, in order to give you more time for review. Once the final exam is passed, there are no restrictions on retaking the same final exam.

Two Exam Prep finals must also be passed: one covering the first course, Real Estate Principles Module 1, which tests what you must know to pass the general portion of the Nebraska Salesperson exam; and one covering the material tested on the state specific portion (Real Estate Principles Module 2 and Nebraska License Law).

Exams may be repeated without limitation; however, we strongly recommend thoroughly reviewing the material again any time an exam is not passed before attempting the same exam again.
