Before you sign up for an online course, you should consider some of the pluses and minuses of each way that the course is delivered and make a decision as to which approach may be right for you.

The Online Format

Pluses:
– Flexibility in study time. Anytime you can log on to the internet, you can be studying.
– Usually less expensive investment for the course than the classroom or the self study/book study format
– If you have a high comprehension and retention level when you read, you could be done with the course in a matter of days as long as you pass the course final exam
– The practice exams are in the computerized format that the final exam and State/National exam will be delivered.

Minuses:
– Because there is no set schedule, a student in this format may have difficulty in focusing and time blocking to finish the course
– The road to being a real estate agent is paved with good intentions. Many sign up for the class, all excited at first, and never follow through.

The classroom setting format

Pluses:
– Usually taught by an experienced instructor that is able to answer any questions that you have
– Classroom setting allows for interaction with fellow students
– Instructor may be able to provide some tips on passing the ultimate state and national test

Minuses:
– Time…The course is usually taught in a chapter format that is spread over multiple weeks
– Lack of flexibility in scheduling. Classes are at a set time and attendance is mandatory
– Those same fellow students that you are interacting with may not be as committed to succeeding as you are and this may prove to be a distraction


The self study/book study format


Pluses:
– Flexibility in study time. Anytime you can pick up the book, you can be studying
– Usually less expensive investment for the course than the classroom format
– If you have a high comprehension and retention level when you read, you could be done with the course in a matter of days as long as you pass the course final exam
– You have the old fashioned book that you can highlight, dog ear and go back and re-read and review

Minuses:
– Because there is no set schedule, a student in this format may have difficulty in focusing and time blocking to finish the course
– The practice exams are on paper and are not in the computerized format that the final exam and State/National exam will be delivered

Remember, no matter the course format, each requires a final exam.

This is an area that will require you to make a decision based upon your own commitment, study habits and past course experience. Do you need someone to hold your hand in a classroom setting or the safety net of an instructor you can turn to or are you disciplined enough to block off the time to take the course and study on your schedule via an online environment? Only you can truly answer this question.
