All state-licensed Florida Real Estate Agents will benefit from having this text book as a resource throughout their career.
Students are welcome to use other supplemental textbooks and those versions in their possession; however, we cannot guarantee whether the version used will contain the most up to date information on Florida law or all details and nuances of that law. Therefore, we encourage you to use all resources available to your to enrich your learning and further your knowledge as a state licensee and real estate practioner. The Florida Statutes are a great source for the latest on real estate laws. Real estate education is built on a chassis of state and federal laws and modern best practices. Both of which are tested upon earning a license and maintaining that licenses across future renewal periods. The course includes plenty of online material with the course to use in conjunction with a textbook and official government websites.
