Shareholder FAQ2019-02-27T12:11:27-06:00
If I have questions on testing, licensing, or need help with course or exam content, is there someone I can call or email?2021-08-23T13:42:50-06:00

The Wisconsin Office of the Commissioner of Insurance (OCI) is your authoritative source of insurance licensing information. Their website is a very good place to start. The PSI Exams testing service has loads of helpful information as well.

In addition, we have provided detailed articles and helpful links to answer most of your testing and licensing questions.

Just click on the Licensing and Testing tab (above) to track down those details. You can also call us at 800-270-1385 or email us so that we can give you the assistance you deserve and get you fast tracked to success.

We are normally available by phone Monday-Friday from 8 am-6 pm (MST), but you can often catch us in the office over the weekends and during the evenings. We monitor our email except when we are sleeping and will try to respond to you within just a few minutes of your email inquiry. In your email inquiry, if you want to leave us your phone number, we can also call you right back.

Do you have any helpful articles on test taking tips, passing the exam, and licensing in Wisconsin?2021-08-27T11:59:15-06:00

Yes. Professor Furniss has written several articles designed to give you more insight into taking the exam and getting your license in Wisconsin.

Once I complete the course and pass the exam, what do I do to become licensed?2021-08-23T13:41:08-06:00

You must apply for your license after you pass your exam. In Wisconsin, you must submit a completed application within 12 months of passing the exam. You apply online through an organization called National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR).

NIPR’s Helpdesk:  855-674-6477

NIPR’s Email

Consider working with your supervisor, contact the Wisconsin Office of the Commissioner of Insurance (OCI), or email us or give us a call at 800-270-1385 and we can point you in the right direction. However, remember that the Wisconsin Office of the Commissioner of Insurance (OCI) is the official agency in Wisconsin that you should rely on for information regarding insurance licensing matters.

Make sure you obtain your fingerprinting through Fieldprint immediately before you apply for your license. Fingerprinting data is good for only 6 months. If the fingerprinting data is stale, you will have to spend another fee and get your fingerprinting done again.

What are the requirements for me to be eligible to obtain an insurance license in Wisconsin?2021-08-23T13:36:48-06:00

The Wisconsin Office of the Commissioner of Insurance (OCI) will issue an insurance license to individuals who:

  • Are at least eighteen (18) years old
  • Have completed an approved prelicensing education course designated for the particular exam/license applied for
  • Have passed the proper licensing examination
  • Have completed a Fingerprint Background Check (after passing the exam and immediately/preferably one day before applying for the license)
  • Have submitted a completed online application with appropriate fee (exam certificate is valid for 12 months from date of passing the exam)
  • Meets all other applicable license requirements
  • Submits proof of citizenship
  • Have not committed an act for which a license may be denied, see here
How do I know what is on the exam?2021-07-27T13:10:04-06:00

You don’t. However, each state publishes an Exam Outline, which provides a listing of exam topics. We have used these outlines and lots of other sources, including researching insurance rules and regulations, to develop our course materials. We don’t find these outlines too helpful in and of themselves, as they are fairly general in nature. That’s why we reference many different sources of information to develop our materials.

Are the insurance exams difficult?2021-08-23T13:29:49-06:00

Yes. The insurance exams are difficult. It takes solid preparation using the best course materials available. The first time passing rate averages around 40-60%, depending on which exam you are taking.

How do you beat those odds?
We recommend that you plan to prepare for approximately three weeks in advance of when you are scheduled to take the exam. We have spent over 2000 hours putting together our exam prep materials and Professor Furniss has helped over 10,000 individuals like you obtain and maintain their professional insurance licenses. With the right material and with some good old fashioned elbow grease, you should soon pass your exam.

After you have taken your required education, and you find yourself in need help passing the exam (many students do), consider our course and exam prep materials. Professor Furniss designed his materials to help you pass the exam the fastest and easiest way possible. You will need to supplement our materials with the state insurance rules provided to you from your prelicensing education provider in order to best prepare for the exam.

Do I need to be fingerprinted to be licensed?2021-08-23T13:35:28-06:00

Yes. Wisconsin requires you to be fingerprinted and a background check. This is done through the company that Wisconsin has authorized. You may obtain your fingerprints throughout Wisconsin at Fieldprint locations. Preregistration is required. The fee to be finger printed is $36 (subject to change).

If you are interested in selling insurance to individuals and businesses designed to protect property or protect individuals and businesses from liability, you are likely in need of the Combined Property and Casualty license. A few people only sell insurance to individuals for their property and casualty needs and need the Personal Lines license. For selling only life insurance, you could obtain your Life license, but most individuals pick up the Combined Life/Accident & Health or Sickness (Disability) license. To just sell health insurance, you can obtain your Accident & Health or Sickness (Disability) license. Our company provides exam prep for Life, Health, Property, and Casualty.

Our National Life and Health Insurance Exam Prep Package is designed for the following Wisconsin exams:

  • Life Exam:  100 multiple choice questions; exam time allotment is 2 hours; fee is $75

However, our course does not fully meet the needs of students for the Adjuster – Property and Casualty, including Workers Compensation and Crop exam.

Important Note:  Our course packages are designed to help you pass the exam. Consider using our course materials only after you have taken an approved Wisconsin prelicensing education course, and need help passing your exam.

How do I sign up for the exam?2021-08-23T13:20:22-06:00

Wisconsin contracts with PSI Exams which provides for online registration and provides the insurance exams at multiple testing centers in Wisconsin. The biggest bit of advice we can you give is to try to schedule your exam several weeks in advance. (You must register prior to the day of the exam.) This does a couple of good things. First, it lets you put your study plan of action in place and provides an incentive to stay on track. Second, you want to make sure you have a spot when you are ready to take the exam.

If you need to change your date, that is normally not a problem, but you should do so with enough warning to avoid a penalty. The Licensing & Testing tab on this page provides you with succinct directions.

Go to the PSI Exams website to schedule your exam.

Our course materials include General Knowledge National exam material and General Knowledge State Law exam material.

You will have state law materials that are unique to your state from your prelicensing course provider.

We recommend that you use our materials and then supplement with your education provider’s state law rules and regulations to best prep for the exam.

Does Wisconsin have a prelicensing education requirement that I must meet in order to take the exam and become licensed as an insurance agent?2021-08-23T13:07:49-06:00

Yes. Wisconsin has prelicensing education requirement. You must take the required training prior to taking the exam.

Go here for an approved provider list. Also see under the Licensing & Testing tab more detailed testing and licensing information.

Important Note:  Our course packages are designed to help you pass the exam.

Our focus in Wisconsin is to help you pass your insurance licensing exam the fastest and easiest way possible. We have not applied to become an approved prelicensing education provider in Wisconsin.

Which package is your best seller and which do you recommend?2021-08-23T13:06:14-06:00

The National Exam Prep Package is the best seller and is our recommended package. When it comes to passing your insurance exam, it stands to reason that you need to take all reasonable measures to get through the first time. You want to minimize retakes and the lost time and income that comes from not passing your exam as quickly and efficiently as possible. You should really consider putting all of Professor Furniss’ learning tools to work helping prep you for your insurance licensing exam. The cost is very affordable and is a small investment into your future career.

Which exam prep package is best for me?2021-07-27T13:09:54-06:00
  • Practice Questions Package ($69). The Practice Questions Package contains Professor Furniss’ test bank only and is really designed for someone who has already seriously studied the material, has already taken the exam, but still needs only a very small bump in test score to get over the finish line. This package is designed for students who are already pretty confident in their understanding of the material and need that tiny push over the finish line.
  • Practice Questions PLUS Package ($84). For an extra $15, the Practice Questions PLUS package beefs up the Practice Questions Package by adding Professor Furniss’ Super Sheets. This package is for that person who has studied the material and taken the exam but still needs a very small exam score bump. By adding the Super Sheets to the test bank, this package may give you a much needed extra boost in your understanding of the material to pass the exam.
  • National Exam Prep Package ($119). The National Exam Prep Package is our most popular and recommended package. This package contains all of Professor Furniss’ learning tools. Nothing is left out. If you have never taken the insurance exam, this is the package that you must have. Or, if you have taken the exam one or more times and need to make sure that you really understand the material, this is the package for you. Professor Furniss believes that if you need more than just a couple of points boost in your exam score, that it is worth the price difference to purchase this package. You will save enough money on one retest fee to pay for the extra cost of this package.
What are the differences among your three types of exam prep packages?2021-07-27T13:09:54-06:00
  • National Practice Questions Package ($69). This package just includes the practice question test bank. This includes our 2000+ question test bank, “exam simulation mode” timed exams to ensure readiness, exam review mode to “learn as you go,” answer explanations for all questions, and unlimited practice exam combinations.

There are 26 or more Super Sheets in each package, a Numbers Sheet, with critical must know numbers (e.g. 10 days, 31 days, 45 days, etc.), and a Math Sheet, which contains math formulas and problems tested on the exam. These Super Sheets (cheat sheets) were developed by Professor Furniss to condense reams of material into a few sheets for last minute test cramming; and his math and number sheets are designed so that the critical numbers are easy to memorize and math problems can be practiced so that you can ace your exam. We also provide outstanding service with 60-day access.
  • National Exam Prep Package ($119). This package includes every learning tool we offer. Specifically, it includes everything in the Practice Questions Package (2000+ question test bank) AND the Practice Questions PLUS Package (26+ Super Sheets). In addition, this recommended package contains all of the additional learning tools designed by Professor Furniss. This includes an easy and fun to read, comprehensive, electronic and printable manual that highlights test tips and critical points, and ranks chapters based on difficulty and importance. It also includes Quick Review Slides with built in Rapid Fire Question and Answer (Q&A) Drills to make complex points easy to remember by driving the critical test points home. Professor Furniss developed this complete package with different learning styles in mind by providing multiple avenues to review material so you are ready for your licensing exam. We also provide outstanding service with 60-day access. Plus, with the National Exam Prep Package, we offer free 60 day extensions if needed.
How long do I have access to your online material once I subscribe to a course package?2021-07-27T13:09:53-06:00

We provide 60 days’ online access for all packages. With the National Exam Prep Package, we provide an additional 60 day extension at no charge.

Like with our Practice Questions Package, we provide 60 days’ online access with our Practice Questions PLUS Package.

What is included in your insurance exam National Practice Questions Package?2021-08-23T13:02:47-06:00

Our National Practice Questions Package includes access to the test bank only. The test bank does contain all of the same test questions as our National Exam Prep Package. And, you can practice questions in Exam Review Mode or Exam Simulation Mode, or both. Practice Questions Package provide you with:

  • Exam Review Mode, designed to allow you to practice multiple choice questions like the ones on your real exam and receive instant feedback on each question along with answer explanations so you are not left wondering why you missed the question.
  • Exam Simulation Mode, which provides the same questions found in Exam Review Mode, but timed, like the real exam (our test bank is one the most comprehensive and well written test banks that we are aware of).
  • The Practice Questions Package does not include our manual, Quick Review Slides with Rapid Fire Q&As, or Super Sheets.
  • 60 days’ access.

If you want Super Sheets in addition to our Practice Questions, you should purchase our National Practice Questions PLUS Package. If you want all of our learning tools, which we highly recommend, you should purchase our National Exam Prep Package.

Both the Super Sheets and manuals are PDF format and printable. We just ask that you honor our copyright and single use license and only use our materials for your own exam prep. This allows us to keep our prices competitive for future individuals like you.

Do I receive a printed manual with the National Exam Prep Package?2021-08-23T13:01:57-06:00

With the National Exam Prep Package, you will receive access to two great digital manuals – one covering national materials and one covering general state rules and regulations. Both are in electronic, PDF format and are downloadable and printable. You are free to have your local copy shop print and bind a copy for you. Please note that we do not include our manuals with our Practice Questions Package or our Practice Questions PLUS Package, only with the National Exam Prep Package.

Will I receive a Certificate of Completion after taking your course?2021-08-23T13:01:48-06:00

When using our materials to help you pass your exam, a certification of completion is not issued. Study our materials at your own pace and take the exam when you are scheduled with PSI Exams. No certificate will be given from us. However, you will have received a needed certificate from your Wisconsin approved prelicensing education provider.

Use us to help push you over the top on the exam. That’s where our materials and learning tools shine.

What is the best way to study or go through your complete set of prep materials?2021-07-27T13:09:52-06:00

One size does not fit everyone. While we do provide a suggested pathway: Read the chapter, then go through Quick Review Slides with Rapid Fire Drills, then go through the test bank for that chapter using the Exam Review Mode. Finally, do a quick read over that chapter’s Super Sheet and take our chapter questions in a timed exam (Exam Simulation Mode). Having said all of that, it is really up to you. You are free to move around our material with no restrictions in order to find a learning pathway that works best for you.

How long should I plan for to complete your course materials?2021-08-23T13:01:00-06:00

If you purchase our National Exam Prep Package, and you are just beginning the study of insurance, you should consider spending approximately 3 weeks. Some students report being ready in one week; others take 5-6 weeks. We think that planning a solid daily schedule over 2-3 weeks works for most students. If you just need a small bump in your exam score, you may be able to “fast track” your studies using one or more of our learning tools. You should use our materials after you have completed your required prelicensing education from an Wisconsin approved provider. Then, in order to either fully prep for the exam the first time or to help you over the hump in the event that you are falling short of a passing score, you should consider using our materials.

Our focus in Wisconsin is to help you pass your insurance licensing exam the fastest and easiest way possible. We have not applied to become an approved prelicensing education provider in Wisconsin. Purchasing our materials does not meet your prelicensing education requirement. Use our materials with the state specific content from your prelicensing education provider to prep for the exam and get the extra edge needed to pass the exam.

How are your National Exam Prep Packages set up?2021-08-23T13:00:35-06:00

You can prepare for the exam many different ways with our course materials. Our courses allow you to move forward, backward, skip material, and study the way you want to. You can focus on your weak areas if you wish. Or, review the Quick Review Slides on areas that you are strong on while digging deeper into our material for areas that you need to obtain more in depth understanding.

Click through – skip around – study what you are having most difficulty with. With our materials, you are free to be in control of how you approach your studies – choose the learning pathway that works best for you.

What is included in your National Exam Prep Packages?2021-09-10T07:43:09-06:00

    Here is what Joe, one of our very satisfied customers from Virginia, had to say about our manual:
    “Sorry I have not been able to get back to you, I have been really busy trying to run one business I own while studying for the insurance exams and getting everything in place with the insurance business purchase. I read your entire book in 3 days. Not only to get as much material in my head as possible, but because it was actually interesting reading. I don’t know how you do it, but your books are so much easier and more enjoyable to read than anything else I have put in my hands. I also have two other well-known companies’ books that I have used in getting my license but there is absolutely no comparison in the books. I am not just saying it to be nice. I hope everyone is able to find you on the internet because not only are you a great group of guys, your books are incredible. You will hear more from me and I WILL be sending many more people your way. I will not forget what you guys did for me. If you ever want a testimonial for your advertising let me know, I would be honored to share my experience with everyone. Thanks once again.″

How do I know what is on the exam?2021-07-27T13:09:46-06:00

You don’t. However, each state publishes an Exam Outline, which provides a listing of exam topics. We have used these outlines and lots of other sources, including researching insurance rules and regulations, to develop our course materials. We don’t find these outlines too helpful in and of themselves, as they are fairly general in nature. That’s why we reference many different sources of information to develop our materials.

Are the insurance exams difficult?2021-08-23T12:32:44-06:00

How do I sign up for the exam?2021-08-23T12:19:24-06:00

West Virginia contracts with Pearson VUE which provides for online registration and provides the insurance exams at multiple testing centers in West Virginia. The biggest bit of advice we can you give is to try to schedule your exam several weeks in advance. (You are required to register at least 24 hours prior to your exam.) This does a couple of good things. First, it lets you put your study plan of action in place and provides an incentive to stay on track. Second, you want to make sure you have a spot when you are ready to take the exam.

If you need to change your date, that is normally not a problem, but you should do so with enough warning to avoid a penalty. The Licensing & Testing tab on this page provides you with succinct directions.

Go to the Pearson VUE website to schedule your exam.

  • Practice Questions PLUS Package ($84). For an extra $15, the Practice Questions PLUS package beefs up the Practice Questions Package by adding Professor Furniss’ Super Sheets. This package is for that person who has studied the material and taken the exam but still needs a very small exam score bump. By adding the Super Sheets to the test bank, this package may give you a much needed extra boost in your understanding of the material to pass the exam.
  • National Exam Prep Package ($119). The National Exam Prep Package is our most popular and recommended package. This package contains all of Professor Furniss’ learning tools. Nothing is left out. If you have never taken the insurance exam, this is the package that you must have. Or, if you have taken the exam one or more times and need to make sure that you really understand the material, this is the package for you. Professor Furniss believes that if you need more than just a couple of points boost in your exam score, that it is worth the price difference to purchase this package. You will save enough money on one retest fee to pay for the extra cost of this package.
What are the differences among your three types of exam prep packages?2021-07-27T13:09:39-06:00
  • National Practice Questions Package ($69). This package just includes the practice question test bank. This includes our 2000+ question test bank, “exam simulation mode” timed exams to ensure readiness, exam review mode to “learn as you go,” answer explanations for all questions, and unlimited practice exam combinations.

  • National Practice Questions PLUS Package ($84). This package includes everything in the Practice Questions Package (2000+ question test bank), PLUS Professor Furniss’ Super Sheets. There are 26 or more Super Sheets in each package, a Numbers Sheet, with critical must know numbers (e.g. 10 days, 31 days, 45 days, etc.), and a Math Sheet, which contains math formulas and problems tested on the exam. These Super Sheets (cheat sheets) were developed by Professor Furniss to condense reams of material into a few sheets for last minute test cramming; and his math and number sheets are designed so that the critical numbers are easy to memorize and math problems can be practiced so that you can ace your exam. We also provide outstanding service with 60-day access.
  • National Exam Prep Package ($119). This package includes every learning tool we offer. Specifically, it includes everything in the Practice Questions Package (2000+ question test bank) AND the Practice Questions PLUS Package (26+ Super Sheets). In addition, this recommended package contains all of the additional learning tools designed by Professor Furniss. This includes an easy and fun to read, comprehensive, electronic and printable manual that highlights test tips and critical points, and ranks chapters based on difficulty and importance. It also includes Quick Review Slides with built in Rapid Fire Question and Answer (Q&A) Drills to make complex points easy to remember by driving the critical test points home. Professor Furniss developed this complete package with different learning styles in mind by providing multiple avenues to review material so you are ready for your licensing exam. We also provide outstanding service with 60-day access. Plus, with the National Exam Prep Package, we offer free 60 day extensions if needed.
How long do I have access to your online material once I subscribe to a course package?2021-07-27T13:09:38-06:00

We provide 60 days’ online access for all packages. With the National Exam Prep Package, we provide an additional 60 day extension at no charge. For the National Practice Questions and the National Practice Questions PLUS Packages, you have access for 60 days with no extension. Of course, you may purchase an additional package if you need extra time.

What is included in your National Practice Questions PLUS Package?2021-08-23T12:06:13-06:00

Our National Practice Questions PLUS Package contains all of the questions and interactions (e.g. Exam Review Mode, Exam Simulation Mode, etc.) found in our National Practice Questions Package. In addition, it contains all of our Super Sheets, including a Numbers Sheet and a Math Sheet. For property and casualty packages, we have a total of 28 Super Sheets and for life and health packages, we have a total of 32 Super Sheets. Like with our Practice Questions Package, we provide 60 days’ online access with our Practice Questions PLUS Package.

Important Note:  Our course packages are designed to help you pass the exam. Consider using our course materials only after you have taken an approved West Virginia prelicensing education course, and need help passing your exam. Our focus in West Virginia is to help you pass your insurance licensing exam the fastest and easiest way possible. We have not applied to become an approved prelicensing education provider in West Virginia. Purchasing our materials does not meet your prelicensing education requirement. You will need to supplement our materials with the West Virginia specific rules provided by your prelicensing education provider.

What is included in your insurance exam National Practice Questions Package?2021-08-23T12:06:49-06:00

Our National Practice Questions Package includes access to the test bank only. The test bank does contain all of the same test questions as our National Exam Prep Package. And, you can practice questions in Exam Review Mode or Exam Simulation Mode, or both. Practice Questions Package provide you with:

  • Exam Review Mode, designed to allow you to practice multiple choice questions like the ones on your real exam and receive instant feedback on each question along with answer explanations so you are not left wondering why you missed the question.
  • Exam Simulation Mode, which provides the same questions found in Exam Review Mode, but timed, like the real exam (our test bank is one the most comprehensive and well written test banks that we are aware of).
  • The Practice Questions Package does not include our manual, Quick Review Slides with Rapid Fire Q&As, or Super Sheets.
  • 60 days’ access.

If you want Super Sheets in addition to our Practice Questions, you should purchase our National Practice Questions PLUS Package. If you want all of our learning tools, which we highly recommend, you should purchase our National Exam Prep Package.

Important Note:  Our course packages are designed to help you pass the exam. Consider using our course materials only after you have taken an approved West Virginia prelicensing education course, and need help passing your exam. Our focus in West Virginia is to help you pass your insurance licensing exam the fastest and easiest way possible. We have not applied to become an approved prelicensing education provider in West Virginia. Purchasing our materials does not meet your prelicensing education requirement. You will need to supplement our materials with the West Virginia specific rules provided by your prelicensing education provider.

Are my course materials printable?2021-07-27T13:09:38-06:00

Both the Super Sheets and manuals are PDF format and printable. We just ask that you honor our copyright and single use license and only use our materials for your own exam prep. This allows us to keep our prices competitive for future individuals like you.

Do I receive a printed manual with the National Exam Prep Package?2021-08-23T11:55:20-06:00

With the National Exam Prep Package, you will receive access to two great digital manuals – one covering national materials and one covering general state rules and regulations. Both are in electronic, PDF format and are downloadable and printable. You are free to have your local copy shop print and bind a copy for you. Please note that we do not include our manuals with our Practice Questions Package or our Practice Questions PLUS Package, only with the National Exam Prep Package.

Will I receive a Certificate of Completion after taking your course?2021-08-23T11:58:56-06:00

When using our materials to help you pass your exam, a certification of completion is not issued. Study our materials at your own pace and take the exam when you are scheduled with Pearson VUE. No certificate will be given from us. However, you will have received a needed certificate from your West Virginia approved prelicensing education provider.

Use us to help push you over the top on the exam. That’s where our materials and learning tools shine.

What is the best way to study or go through your complete set of prep materials?2021-07-27T13:09:38-06:00

One size does not fit everyone. While we do provide a suggested pathway: Read the chapter, then go through Quick Review Slides with Rapid Fire Drills, then go through the test bank for that chapter using the Exam Review Mode. Finally, do a quick read over that chapter’s Super Sheet and take our chapter questions in a timed exam (Exam Simulation Mode). Having said all of that, it is really up to you. You are free to move around our material with no restrictions in order to find a learning pathway that works best for you.

How long should I plan for to complete your course materials?2021-08-23T11:56:14-06:00

If you purchase our National Exam Prep Package, and you are just beginning the study of insurance, you should consider spending approximately 3 weeks. Some students report being ready in one week; others take 5-6 weeks. We think that planning a solid daily schedule over 2-3 weeks works for most students. If you just need a small bump in your exam score, you may be able to “fast track” your studies using one or more of our learning tools. You should use our materials after you have completed your required prelicensing education from an West Virginia approved provider. Then, in order to either fully prep for the exam the first time or to help you over the hump in the event that you are falling short of a passing score, you should consider using our materials.

Our focus in West Virginia is to help you pass your insurance licensing exam the fastest and easiest way possible. We have not applied to become an approved prelicensing education provider in West Virginia. Purchasing our materials does not meet your prelicensing education requirement. Use our materials with the state specific content from your prelicensing education provider to prep for the exam and get the extra edge needed to pass the exam.

How are your National Exam Prep Packages set up?2021-08-23T11:56:38-06:00

You can prepare for the exam many different ways with our course materials. Our courses allow you to move forward, backward, skip material, and study the way you want to. You can focus on your weak areas if you wish. Or, review the Quick Review Slides on areas that you are strong on while digging deeper into our material for areas that you need to obtain more in depth understanding.

Click through – skip around – study what you are having most difficulty with. With our materials, you are free to be in control of how you approach your studies – choose the learning pathway that works best for you.

What is included in your National Exam Prep Packages?2021-09-10T07:24:04-06:00

Our National Exam Prep Packages include every exam prep tool we offer in a single package. Specifically, they include a(n):

  • Easy To Read Manual.  Our course packages include a comprehensive, yet easy to read, manual with important test points highlighted, each paragraph star ranked based on topic importance, critical test points identified, and loads of examples.

    Here is what Joe, one of our very satisfied customers from Virginia, had to say  about our manual:
    “Sorry I have not been able to get back to you, I have been really busy trying to run one business I own while studying for the insurance exams and getting everything in place with the insurance business purchase. I read your entire book in 3 days. Not only to get as much material in my head as possible, but because it was actually interesting reading. I don’t know how you do it, but your books are so much easier and more enjoyable to read than anything else I have put in my hands. I also have two other well-known companies’ books that I have used in getting my license but there is absolutely no comparison in the books. I am not just saying it to be nice. I hope everyone is able to find you on the internet because not only are you a great group of guys, your books are incredible. You will hear more from me and I WILL be sending many more people your way. I will not forget what you guys did for me. If you ever want a testimonial for your advertising let me know, I would be honored to share my experience with everyone. Thanks once again.″

Make sure you obtain your fingerprinting through IDEMIA or IdentoGO a few days before you apply for your license. If the fingerprinting data is stale, you will have to spend another fee and get your fingerprinting done again.

What are the requirements for me to be eligible to obtain an insurance license in Washington?2021-08-23T11:27:44-06:00

The Washington Office of the Insurance Commissioner will issue an insurance license to individuals who:

  • Are at least eighteen (18) years old
  • Have completed an approved prelicensing education course designated for the particular exam/license applied for
  • Have passed the proper licensing examination
  • Have completed a Fingerprint Background Check (We recommend registering several days in advance of your targeted license application date so your fingerprint data is current)
  • Have submitted a completed online application with appropriate fee (exam certificate is valid for 12 months from date of passing the exam)
  • Meets all other applicable license requirements
  • Submits proof of citizenship
  • Have not committed an act for which a license may be denied, see here
How do I know what is on the exam?2021-07-27T13:09:33-06:00

You don’t. However, each state publishes an Exam Outline, which provides a listing of exam topics. We have used these outlines and lots of other sources, including researching insurance rules and regulations, to develop our course materials. We don’t find these outlines too helpful in and of themselves, as they are fairly general in nature. That’s why we reference many different sources of information to develop our materials.

Are the insurance exams difficult?2021-08-23T11:14:50-06:00

Yes. The insurance exams are difficult. It takes solid preparation using the best course materials available. The first time passing rate averages around 40-60%, depending on which exam you are taking.

How do you beat those odds?
We recommend that you plan to prepare for approximately three weeks in advance of when you are scheduled to take the exam. We have spent over 2000 hours putting together our exam prep materials and Professor Furniss has helped over 10,000 individuals like you obtain and maintain their professional insurance licenses. With the right material and with some good old fashioned elbow grease, you should soon pass your exam.

After you have taken your required education, and you find yourself in need help passing the exam (many students do), consider our course and exam prep materials. Professor Furniss designed his materials to help you pass the exam the fastest and easiest way possible. You will need to supplement our materials with the state insurance rules provided to you from your prelicensing education provider in order to best prepare for the exam.

Do I need to be fingerprinted to be licensed?2021-08-23T11:23:18-06:00

Yes. Washington requires you to be fingerprinted and a background check. This is done through the company that Washington has authorized. You may obtain your fingerprints throughout Washington at EDIMEA (888-771-5097) locations or IdentoGO. Preregistration is required. The fee to be finger printed is $49.25 (subject to change).

Tip:  Register a few day in advance of your exam date, so that your fingerprinting data is current when you apply for your license.

How do I find a testing center for the insurance exam?2021-08-23T11:11:30-06:00
Are there any special issues related to testing and COVID-19?2021-08-23T11:06:18-06:00

Yes. For a complete update by PSI Exams testing service, please go here.

Do you have any other exam registration/preparation advice?2021-09-09T06:17:01-06:00

Please register for the exam early so that you get your preferred testing schedule. (You should sign up several days before your exam time. And, you must have a certificate of completion from your prelicensing education provider in hand for exam day. Don’t schedule your fingerprinting until after you pass the exam and immediately before you apply for your license through NIPR. (The reason is that your fingerprinting data is only available for 30 days to the licensing authorities so you don’t want to have too big of a gap in time; otherwise, you will have to get fingerprinted again and pay another fee.)

The homepage of PSI Exams provides access to test center locations, registration services, and lots of helpful testing information. Go here to access lots of great information from PSI Exams.

Finally. After you have taken your required education, and you find yourself in need help passing the exam (many students do), consider our course and exam prep materials. Professor Furniss designed his materials to help you pass the exam the fastest and easiest way possible.

If you are interested in selling insurance to individuals and businesses designed to protect property or protect individuals and businesses from liability, you are likely in need of the Combined Property and Casualty license. A few people only sell insurance to individuals for their property and casualty needs and need the Personal Lines license. For selling only life insurance, you could obtain your Life license, but most individuals pick up the Combined Life/Accident & Health or Sickness (Disability) license. To just sell health insurance, you can obtain your Accident & Health or Sickness (Disability) license. Our company provides exam prep for Life, Health, Property, and Casualty.

However, our course does not fully meet the needs of students for the Adjuster – Property and Casualty, including Workers Compensation and Crop exam.

Important Note:  Our course packages are designed to help you pass the exam. Consider using our course materials only after you have taken an approved Washington prelicensing education course, and need help passing your exam.

How do I sign up for the exam?2021-08-23T10:58:44-06:00

Washington contracts with PSI Exams which provides for online registration and provides the insurance exams at multiple testing centers in Washington. The biggest bit of advice we can you give is to try to schedule your exam several weeks in advance. This does a couple of good things. First, it lets you put your study plan of action in place and provides an incentive to stay on track. Second, you want to make sure you have a spot when you are ready to take the exam.

If you need to change your date, that is normally not a problem, but you should do so with enough warning to avoid a penalty. The Licensing & Testing tab on this page provides you with succinct directions.

Go to the PSI Exams website to schedule your exam.

Our course materials include General Knowledge National exam material and General Knowledge State Law exam material. HOWEVER, about 15-20% of your exam has content unique to your state AND you will need access from another source for that content. You will have state law materials that are unique to your state from your prelicensing course provider.

We recommend that you use our materials and then supplement with your education provider’s state law rules and regulations to best prep for the exam.

Go here for an approved provider list. Also see under the Licensing & Testing tab more detailed testing and licensing information.

Important Note:  Our course packages are designed to help you pass the exam.

Which package is your best seller and which do you recommend?2021-08-23T10:47:24-06:00

The National Exam Prep Package is the best seller and is our recommended package. When it comes to passing your insurance exam, it stands to reason that you need to take all reasonable measures to get through the first time. You want to minimize retakes and the lost time and income that comes from not passing your exam as quickly and efficiently as possible. You should really consider putting all of Professor Furniss’ learning tools to work helping prep you for your insurance licensing exam. The cost is very affordable and is a small investment into your future career.

Which exam prep package is best for me?2021-07-27T13:09:29-06:00
  • Practice Questions Package ($69). The Practice Questions Package contains Professor Furniss’ test bank only and is really designed for someone who has already seriously studied the material, has already taken the exam, but still needs only a very small bump in test score to get over the finish line. This package is designed for students who are already pretty confident in their understanding of the material and need that tiny push over the finish line.
  • Practice Questions PLUS Package ($84). For an extra $15, the Practice Questions PLUS package beefs up the Practice Questions Package by adding Professor Furniss’ Super Sheets. This package is for that person who has studied the material and taken the exam but still needs a very small exam score bump. By adding the Super Sheets to the test bank, this package may give you a much needed extra boost in your understanding of the material to pass the exam.
  • National Exam Prep Package ($119). The National Exam Prep Package is our most popular and recommended package. This package contains all of Professor Furniss’ learning tools. Nothing is left out. If you have never taken the insurance exam, this is the package that you must have. Or, if you have taken the exam one or more times and need to make sure that you really understand the material, this is the package for you. Professor Furniss believes that if you need more than just a couple of points boost in your exam score, that it is worth the price difference to purchase this package. You will save enough money on one retest fee to pay for the extra cost of this package.
What are the differences among your three types of exam prep packages?2021-07-27T13:09:28-06:00
  • National Practice Questions Package ($69). This package just includes the practice question test bank. This includes our 2000+ question test bank, “exam simulation mode” timed exams to ensure readiness, exam review mode to “learn as you go,” answer explanations for all questions, and unlimited practice exam combinations. We use best in class technology which is mobile friendly, interactive, and available 24/7/365. We also provide outstanding service with 60-day access.
  • National Practice Questions PLUS Package ($84). This package includes everything in the Practice Questions Package (2000+ question test bank), PLUS Professor Furniss’ Super Sheets. There are 26 or more Super Sheets in each package, a Numbers Sheet, with critical must know numbers (e.g. 10 days, 31 days, 45 days, etc.), and a Math Sheet, which contains math formulas and problems tested on the exam. These Super Sheets (cheat sheets) were developed by Professor Furniss to condense reams of material into a few sheets for last minute test cramming; and his math and number sheets are designed so that the critical numbers are easy to memorize and math problems can be practiced so that you can ace your exam. We also provide outstanding service with 60-day access.
  • National Exam Prep Package ($119). This package includes every learning tool we offer. Specifically, it includes everything in the Practice Questions Package (2000+ question test bank) AND the Practice Questions PLUS Package (26+ Super Sheets). In addition, this recommended package contains all of the additional learning tools designed by Professor Furniss. This includes an easy and fun to read, comprehensive, electronic and printable manual that highlights test tips and critical points, and ranks chapters based on difficulty and importance. It also includes Quick Review Slides with built in Rapid Fire Question and Answer (Q&A) Drills to make complex points easy to remember by driving the critical test points home. Professor Furniss developed this complete package with different learning styles in mind by providing multiple avenues to review material so you are ready for your licensing exam. We also provide outstanding service with 60-day access. Plus, with the National Exam Prep Package, we offer free 60 day extensions if needed.
How long do I have access to your online material once I subscribe to a course package?2021-07-27T13:09:28-06:00

We provide 60 days’ online access for all packages. With the National Exam Prep Package, we provide an additional 60 day extension at no charge. For the National Practice Questions and the National Practice Questions PLUS Packages, you have access for 60 days with no extension. Of course, you may purchase an additional package if you need extra time.

What is included in your National Practice Questions PLUS Package?2021-08-23T10:47:11-06:00

Our National Practice Questions PLUS Package contains all of the questions and interactions (e.g. Exam Review Mode, Exam Simulation Mode, etc.) found in our National Practice Questions Package.

For property and casualty packages, we have a total of 28 Super Sheets and for life and health packages, we have a total of 32 Super Sheets. Like with our Practice Questions Package, we provide 60 days’ online access with our Practice Questions PLUS Package.

What is included in your insurance exam National Practice Questions Package?2021-08-23T10:47:00-06:00

Our National Practice Questions Package includes access to the test bank only. The test bank does contain all of the same test questions as our National Exam Prep Package. And, you can practice questions in Exam Review Mode or Exam Simulation Mode, or both. Practice Questions Package provide you with:

  • Exam Review Mode, designed to allow you to practice multiple choice questions like the ones on your real exam and receive instant feedback on each question along with answer explanations so you are not left wondering why you missed the question.
  • Exam Simulation Mode, which provides the same questions found in Exam Review Mode, but timed, like the real exam (our test bank is one the most comprehensive and well written test banks that we are aware of).
  • The Practice Questions Package does not include our manual, Quick Review Slides with Rapid Fire Q&As, or Super Sheets.
  • 60 days’ access.

If you want Super Sheets in addition to our Practice Questions, you should purchase our National Practice Questions PLUS Package. If you want all of our learning tools, which we highly recommend, you should purchase our National Exam Prep Package.

Are my course materials printable?2021-07-27T13:09:26-06:00

Both the Super Sheets and manuals are PDF format and printable. We just ask that you honor our copyright and single use license and only use our materials for your own exam prep. This allows us to keep our prices competitive for future individuals like you.

Do I receive a printed manual with the National Exam Prep Package?2021-08-23T10:38:58-06:00

With the National Exam Prep Package, you will receive access to two great digital manuals – one covering national materials and one covering general state rules and regulations. Both are in electronic, PDF format and are downloadable and printable. You are free to have your local copy shop print and bind a copy for you. Please note that we do not include our manuals with our Practice Questions Package or our Practice Questions PLUS Package, only with the National Exam Prep Package.

Will I receive a Certificate of Completion after taking your course?2021-08-23T10:39:35-06:00

When using our materials to help you pass your exam, a certification of completion is not issued. Study our materials at your own pace and take the exam when you are scheduled with PSI Exams. No certificate will be given from us. However, you will have received a needed certificate from your Washington approved prelicensing education provider.

Use us to help push you over the top on the exam. That’s where our materials and learning tools shine.

What is the best way to study or go through your complete set of prep materials?2021-07-27T13:09:25-06:00

One size does not fit everyone. While we do provide a suggested pathway: Read the chapter, then go through Quick Review Slides with Rapid Fire Drills, then go through the test bank for that chapter using the Exam Review Mode. Finally, do a quick read over that chapter’s Super Sheet and take our chapter questions in a timed exam (Exam Simulation Mode). Having said all of that, it is really up to you. You are free to move around our material with no restrictions in order to find a learning pathway that works best for you.

How long should I plan for to complete your course materials?2021-08-23T10:38:33-06:00

If you purchase our National Exam Prep Package, and you are just beginning the study of insurance, you should consider spending approximately 3 weeks. Some students report being ready in one week; others take 5-6 weeks. We think that planning a solid daily schedule over 2-3 weeks works for most students. If you just need a small bump in your exam score, you may be able to “fast track” your studies using one or more of our learning tools. You should use our materials after you have completed your required prelicensing education from an Washington approved provider. Then, in order to either fully prep for the exam the first time or to help you over the hump in the event that you are falling short of a passing score, you should consider using our materials.

Our focus in Washington is to help you pass your insurance licensing exam the fastest and easiest way possible. We have not applied to become an approved prelicensing education provider in Washington. Purchasing our materials does not meet your prelicensing education requirement. Use our materials with the state specific content from your prelicensing education provider to prep for the exam and get the extra edge needed to pass the exam.

How are your National Exam Prep Packages set up?2021-08-23T10:38:02-06:00

You can prepare for the exam many different ways with our course materials. Our courses allow you to move forward, backward, skip material, and study the way you want to. You can focus on your weak areas if you wish. Or, review the Quick Review Slides on areas that you are strong on while digging deeper into our material for areas that you need to obtain more in depth understanding.

Click through – skip around – study what you are having most difficulty with. With our materials, you are free to be in control of how you approach your studies – choose the learning pathway that works best for you.

What is included in your National Exam Prep Packages?2021-08-23T10:37:42-06:00

Our National Exam Prep Packages include every exam prep tool we offer in a single package. Specifically, they include a(n):

  • Easy To Read Manual.  Our course packages include a comprehensive, yet easy to read, manual with important test points highlighted, each paragraph star ranked based on topic importance, critical test points identified, and loads of examples.Here is what Joe, one of our very satisfied customers from Virginia, had to say about our manual:

    “Sorry I have not been able to get back to you, I have been really busy trying to run one business I own while studying for the insurance exams and getting everything in place with the insurance business purchase. I read your entire book in 3 days. Not only to get as much material in my head as possible, but because it was actually interesting reading. I don’t know how you do it, but your books are so much easier and more enjoyable to read than anything else I have put in my hands. I also have two other well-known companies’ books that I have used in getting my license but there is absolutely no comparison in the books. I am not just saying it to be nice. I hope everyone is able to find you on the internet because not only are you a great group of guys, your books are incredible. You will hear more from me and I WILL be sending many more people your way. I will not forget what you guys did for me. If you ever want a testimonial for your advertising let me know, I would be honored to share my experience with everyone. Thanks once again.″

Can I take more than one course at a time?2021-07-27T13:09:23-06:00

Yes. Although we do not recommend it, you are free to take more than one course at a time.

Do I need approval or sponsorship before I purchase your material?2021-08-23T10:33:33-06:00

Not to purchase our materials. Our packages are designed to help you pass your exam the easiest and fastest way possible. However, Washington does require a prelicensing education course from an approved Washington prelicensing education provider. Go here for a list of companies that are approved.

So, to pass the insurance exams, you just need to take your required course and then prepare. The exams are tough, so you need very good material from a reputable exam prep company like 180 Licensing to supplement what your education provider uses.

Lots of students have taken a prelicensing course, have a valid certificate, and are still having trouble with the exam. We have highly effective courses designed to make passing the exam easier.

We recommend our National Exam Prep Package for your Life and Health or Property and Casualty exam prep needs. You will need to supplement our materials with the Washington specific rules provided by your prelicensing education provider.

Our focus in Washington is on helping you pass your insurance licensing exam as fast and easy as is possible. However, note that purchasing our materials does not meet your prelicensing education requirement, you already need to have that taken care of.

How do I access the material once I purchase a course package?2021-07-27T13:09:22-06:00

You set up an account when you purchase our materials. Go to the Student Login link (top right menu tab on any page) and access your courses. (Once logged in, you will see that the link changes to My Account, which gives you access to your account info, courses purchased, etc.) Your materials are available 24/7 as long as you have Internet access. If you later forget your password, there is a reset password function from the Student Login/My Account link.

Is my payment secure and do you keep records of my credit card?2021-07-27T13:09:22-06:00

Yes, your payment is secure. We do not store your credit card records. We value your privacy and want to protect your information.

Note Regarding Washington Adjusters Exam:  Most students find our Property and Casualty Package very helpful for the Adjuster – Property and Casualty, excluding Workers’ Compensation and Crop exam.

If I have questions on testing, licensing, or need help with course or exam content, is there someone I can call or email?2021-08-21T23:41:27-06:00

The Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance (TNDCI) is your authoritative source of insurance licensing information. Their website is a very good place to start. The Pearson VUE testing service has loads of helpful information as well.

In addition, we have provided detailed articles and helpful links to answer most of your testing and licensing questions. Just click on the Licensing and Testing tab (above) to track down those details. You can also call us at 800-270-1385 or email us so that we can give you the assistance you deserve and get you fast tracked to success.

We are normally available by phone Monday-Friday from 8 am-6 pm (MST), but you can often catch us in the office over the weekends and during the evenings.

Once I complete the course and pass the exam, what do I do to become licensed?2021-08-21T23:39:04-06:00

You must apply for your license after you pass your exam. In Tennessee, you must submit a completed application within 12 months of passing the exam. You apply online through an organization called National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR).

NIPR’s Helpdesk:  855-674-6477

NIPR’s Email

Consider working with your supervisor, contact the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance (TNDCI), or email us or give us a call at 800-270-1385 and we can point you in the right direction. However, remember that the Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance (TNDCI) is the official agency in Tennessee that you should rely on for information regarding insurance licensing matters.

Make sure you obtain your fingerprinting through IdentoGO immediately before you apply for your license, as the TNDCI only has access to your fingerprint data for 30 days. If the fingerprinting data is stale, you will have to spend another fee and get your fingerprinting done again.

What are the requirements for me to be eligible to obtain an insurance license in Tennessee?2021-09-09T05:48:04-06:00

How do I know what is on the exam?2021-07-27T13:09:18-06:00

You don’t. However, each state publishes an Exam Outline, which provides a listing of exam topics. We have used these outlines and lots of other sources, including researching insurance rules and regulations, to develop our course materials. We don’t find these outlines too helpful in and of themselves, as they are fairly general in nature. That’s why we reference many different sources of information to develop our materials.

Are the insurance exams difficult?2021-08-21T23:27:03-06:00

Yes. The insurance exams are difficult. It takes solid preparation using the best course materials available. The first time passing rate averages around 40-60%, depending on which exam you are taking.

How do you beat those odds?
We recommend that you plan to prepare for approximately three weeks in advance of when you are scheduled to take the exam. We have spent over 2000 hours putting together our exam prep materials and Professor Furniss has helped over 10,000 individuals like you obtain and maintain their professional insurance licenses. With the right material and with some good old fashioned elbow grease, you should soon pass your exam.

After you have taken your required education, and you find yourself in need help passing the exam (many students do), consider our course and exam prep materials. Professor Furniss designed his materials to help you pass the exam the fastest and easiest way possible. You will need to supplement our materials with the state insurance rules provided to you from your prelicensing education provider in order to best prepare for the exam.

You may obtain your fingerprints throughout Tennessee at IdentoGO locations. Preregistration is required. The fee to be finger printed is $35.15 (subject to change).

Don’t schedule your fingerprinting until after you pass the exam and immediately before you apply for your license through NIPR.

If you are interested in selling insurance to individuals and businesses designed to protect property or protect individuals and businesses from liability, you are likely in need of the Combined Property and Casualty license.

How do I sign up for the exam?2021-08-21T23:12:16-06:00

Tennessee contracts with Pearson VUE which provides for online registration and provides the insurance exams at multiple testing centers in Tennessee. The biggest bit of advice we can you give is to try to schedule your exam several weeks in advance. This does a couple of good things. First, it lets you put your study plan of action in place and provides an incentive to stay on track. Second, you want to make sure you have a spot when you are ready to take the exam. If you need to change your date, that is normally not a problem, but you should do so with enough warning to avoid a penalty. The Licensing & Testing tab on this page provides you with succinct directions.

Go to the Pearson VUE website to schedule your exam.

Important Note:  Our course packages are designed to help you pass the exam. Consider using our course materials only after you have taken an approved Tennessee prelicensing education course, and need help passing your exam. Our focus in Tennessee is to help you pass your insurance licensing exam the fastest and easiest way possible. We have not applied to become an approved prelicensing education provider in Tennessee. Purchasing our materials does not meet your prelicensing education requirement. You will need to supplement our materials with the Tennessee specific rules provided by your prelicensing education provider.

What is included in your insurance exam National Practice Questions Package?2021-08-21T22:52:53-06:00

Our National Practice Questions Package includes access to the test bank only. The test bank does contain all of the same test questions as our National Exam Prep Package. And, you can practice questions in Exam Review Mode or Exam Simulation Mode, or both. Practice Questions Package provide you with:

  • Exam Review Mode, designed to allow you to practice multiple choice questions like the ones on your real exam and receive instant feedback on each question along with answer explanations so you are not left wondering why you missed the question.
  • Exam Simulation Mode, which provides the same questions found in Exam Review Mode, but timed, like the real exam (our test bank is one the most comprehensive and well written test banks that we are aware of).
  • The Practice Questions Package does not include our manual, Quick Review Slides with Rapid Fire Q&As, or Super Sheets.
  • 60 days’ access.

If you want Super Sheets in addition to our Practice Questions, you should purchase our National Practice Questions PLUS Package. If you want all of our learning tools, which we highly recommend, you should purchase our National Exam Prep Package.

Are my course materials printable?2021-07-27T13:09:13-06:00

Both the Super Sheets and manuals are PDF format and printable. We just ask that you honor our copyright and single use license and only use our materials for your own exam prep. This allows us to keep our prices competitive for future individuals like you.

Do I receive a printed manual with the National Exam Prep Package?2021-08-21T22:44:02-06:00

With the National Exam Prep Package, you will receive access to two great digital manuals – one covering national materials and one covering general state rules and regulations. Both are in electronic, PDF format and are downloadable and printable. You are free to have your local copy shop print and bind a copy for you. Please note that we do not include our manuals with our Practice Questions Package or our Practice Questions PLUS Package, only with the National Exam Prep Package.

Will I receive a Certificate of Completion after taking your course?2021-08-21T22:47:25-06:00

When using our materials to help you pass your exam, a certification of completion is not issued. Study our materials at your own pace and take the exam when you are scheduled with Pearson VUE. No certificate will be given from us. However, you will have received a needed certificate from your Tennessee approved prelicensing education provider. Use us to help push you over the top on the exam. That’s where our materials and learning tools shine.

What is the best way to study or go through your complete set of prep materials?2021-07-27T13:09:13-06:00

One size does not fit everyone. While we do provide a suggested pathway: Read the chapter, then go through Quick Review Slides with Rapid Fire Drills, then go through the test bank for that chapter using the Exam Review Mode. Finally, do a quick read over that chapter’s Super Sheet and take our chapter questions in a timed exam (Exam Simulation Mode). Having said all of that, it is really up to you. You are free to move around our material with no restrictions in order to find a learning pathway that works best for you.

How long should I plan for to complete your course materials?2021-08-21T22:49:47-06:00

If you purchase our National Exam Prep Package, and you are just beginning the study of insurance, you should consider spending approximately 3 weeks. Some students report being ready in one week; others take 5-6 weeks. We think that planning a solid daily schedule over 2-3 weeks works for most students. If you just need a small bump in your exam score, you may be able to “fast track” your studies using one or more of our learning tools. You should use our materials after you have completed your required prelicensing education from an Tennessee approved provider. Then, in order to either fully prep for the exam the first time or to help you over the hump in the event that you are falling short of a passing score, you should consider using our materials.

Our focus in Tennessee is to help you pass your insurance licensing exam the fastest and easiest way possible. We have not applied to become an approved prelicensing education provider in Tennessee. Purchasing our materials does not meet your prelicensing education requirement. Use our materials with the state specific content from your prelicensing education provider to prep for the exam and get the extra edge needed to pass the exam.

How are your National Exam Prep Packages set up?2021-08-21T22:44:50-06:00

You can prepare for the exam many different ways with our course materials. Our courses allow you to move forward, backward, skip material, and study the way you want to. You can focus on your weak areas if you wish. Or, review the Quick Review Slides on areas that you are strong on while digging deeper into our material for areas that you need to obtain more in depth understanding.

Click through – skip around – study what you are having most difficulty with. With our materials, you are free to be in control of how you approach your studies – choose the learning pathway that works best for you.

What is included in your National Exam Prep Packages?2021-09-09T05:52:34-06:00

Our National Exam Prep Packages include every exam prep tool we offer in a single package. Specifically, they include a(n):

  • Easy To Read Manual.  Our course packages include a comprehensive, yet easy to read, manual with important test points highlighted, each paragraph star ranked based on topic importance, critical test points identified, and loads of examples.

    Here is what Joe, one of our very satisfied customers from Virginia, had to say about our manual:
    “Sorry I have not been able to get back to you, I have been really busy trying to run one business I own while studying for the insurance exams and getting everything in place with the insurance business purchase. I read your entire book in 3 days. Not only to get as much material in my head as possible, but because it was actually interesting reading. I don’t know how you do it, but your books are so much easier and more enjoyable to read than anything else I have put in my hands. I also have two other well-known companies’ books that I have used in getting my license but there is absolutely no comparison in the books. I am not just saying it to be nice. I hope everyone is able to find you on the internet because not only are you a great group of guys, your books are incredible. You will hear more from me and I WILL be sending many more people your way. I will not forget what you guys did for me. If you ever want a testimonial for your advertising let me know, I would be honored to share my experience with everyone. Thanks once again.″

And, our National Exam Prep Packages contain all of our learning tools.

Can I take more than one course at a time?2021-07-27T13:09:11-06:00

Do I need approval or sponsorship before I purchase your material?2021-08-21T22:39:35-06:00

Not to purchase our materials. Our packages are designed to help you pass your exam the easiest and fastest way possible. However, Tennessee does require a prelicensing education course from an approved Tennessee prelicensing education provider. Go here for a list of companies that are approved.

So, to pass the insurance exams, you just need to take your required course and then prepare. The exams are tough, so you need very good material from a reputable exam prep company like 180 Licensing to supplement what your education provider uses.

Our National Property and Casualty Insurance Exam Prep Package is designed for the following Tennessee exams:

If I have questions on testing, licensing, or need help with course or exam content, is there someone I can call or email?2021-08-23T05:01:39-06:00

The Pennsylvania Insurance Department (PAID) is your authoritative source of insurance licensing information. Their website is a very good place to start. The PSI testing service has loads of helpful information as well.

In addition, we have provided detailed articles and helpful links to answer most of your testing and licensing questions.

Just click on the Licensing and Testing tab (above) to track down those details. You can also call us at 800-270-1385 or email us so that we can give you the assistance you deserve and get you fast tracked to success.

We are normally available by phone Monday-Friday from 8 am-6 pm (MST), but you can often catch us in the office over the weekends and during the evenings. We monitor our email except when we are sleeping and will try to respond to you within just a few minutes of your email inquiry. In your email inquiry, if you want to leave us your phone number, we can also call you right back.

Do you have any helpful articles on test taking tips, passing the exam, and licensing in Pennsylvania?2021-08-27T11:33:06-06:00

Yes. Professor Furniss has written several articles designed to give you more insight into taking the exam and getting your license in Pennsylvania.

Once I complete the course and pass the exam, what do I do to become licensed?2021-09-08T02:49:34-06:00

You must apply for your license after you pass your exam. In Pennsylvania, you must submit a completed application within 12 months of passing the exam. You apply online through an organization called National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR) or Sircon.

NIPR’s Helpdesk:  855-674-6477

NIPR’s Email

Sircon’s Helpdesk:  877-876-4430

Consider working with your supervisor, contact Pennsylvania Insurance Department (PAID), or email us or give us a call at 800-270-1385 and we can point you in the right direction. However, remember that the Pennsylvania Insurance Department (PAID) is the official agency in Pennsylvania that you should rely on for information regarding insurance licensing matters.

Make sure you obtain your fingerprinting through IdentoGO immediately before you apply for your license, as the PAID only has access to your fingerprint data for 30 days. If the fingerprinting data is stale, you will have to spend another fee and get your fingerprinting done again.

What are the requirements for me to be eligible to obtain an insurance license in Pennsylvania?2021-09-08T02:48:05-06:00

The Pennsylvania Insurance Department (PAID) will issue an insurance license to individuals who:

  • Are at least eighteen (18) years old
  • Have completed an approved prelicensing education course designated for the particular exam/license applied for
  • Have passed the proper licensing examination
  • Have completed a Fingerprint Background Check
  • Have submitted a completed online application with $55 fee (subject to change) (exam certificate is valid for 12 months from date of passing the exam)
  • Meets all other applicable license requirements
  • Submits proof of citizenship
  • Have not committed an act for which a license may be denied, see here
How do I know what is on the exam?2021-07-27T13:09:08-06:00

You don’t. However, each state publishes an Exam Outline, which provides a listing of exam topics. We have used these outlines and lots of other sources, including researching insurance rules and regulations, to develop our course materials. We don’t find these outlines too helpful in and of themselves, as they are fairly general in nature. That’s why we reference many different sources of information to develop our materials.

Are the insurance exams difficult?2021-08-23T04:47:10-06:00

Yes. The insurance exams are difficult. It takes solid preparation using the best course materials available. The first time passing rate averages around 40-60%, depending on which exam you are taking.

How do you beat those odds?
We recommend that you plan to prepare for approximately three weeks in advance of when you are scheduled to take the exam. We have spent over 2000 hours putting together our exam prep materials and Professor Furniss has helped over 10,000 individuals like you obtain and maintain their professional insurance licenses. With the right material and with some good old fashioned elbow grease, you should soon pass your exam.

After you have taken your required education, and you find yourself in need help passing the exam (many students do), consider our course and exam prep materials. Professor Furniss designed his materials to help you pass the exam the fastest and easiest way possible. You will need to supplement our materials with the state insurance rules provided to you from your prelicensing education provider in order to best prepare for the exam.

Do I need to be fingerprinted to be licensed?2021-09-08T02:47:15-06:00

Yes. Pennsylvania requires you to be fingerprinted and a background check. This is done through the company that Pennsylvania has authorized. You may obtain your fingerprints throughout Pennsylvania at IdentoGO locations. Preregistration is required. The fee to be fingerprinted is $23.85 (subject to change).

Tip:  Try to plan your fingerprinting after you pass your exam and immediately before you apply for your license because the fingerprint data is available to the PAID for only 30 days. See here.

How do I find a testing center for the insurance exam?2021-09-08T02:52:30-06:00
Are there any special issues related to testing and COVID-19?2021-08-23T04:43:52-06:00

Yes. For a complete update by PSI Services, please go here.

Do you have any other exam registration/preparation advice?2021-08-23T04:43:00-06:00

Please register for the exam early so that you get your preferred testing schedule. And, you must have a certificate of completion from your prelicensing education provider in hand for exam day. Don’t schedule your fingerprinting until after you pass the exam and immediately before you apply for your license through NIPR or Sircon. (The reason is that your fingerprinting data is only available for 30 days to the licensing authorities so you don’t want to have too big of a gap in time; otherwise, you will have to get fingerprinted again and pay another fee.)

The homepage of PSI Services provides access to test center locations, registration services, and lots of helpful testing information. Go here to access lots of great information from PSI.

Finally. After you have taken your required education, and you find yourself in need help passing the exam (many students do), consider our course and exam prep materials. Professor Furniss designed his materials to help you pass the exam the fastest and easiest way possible.

Which exam should I sign up for, how much does it cost, and how long of an exam is it?2021-09-08T02:46:06-06:00

If you are interested in selling insurance to individuals and businesses designed to protect property or protect individuals and businesses from liability, you are likely in need of the Combined Property and Casualty license. A few people only sell insurance to individuals for their property and casualty needs and need the Personal Lines license. For selling only life insurance, you could obtain your Life license, but most individuals pick up the Combined Life/Accident & Health or Sickness (Disability) license. To just sell health insurance, you can obtain your Accident & Health or Sickness (Disability) license. Our company provides exam prep for Life, Health, Property, and Casualty.

Our National Life and Health Insurance Exam Prep Package is designed for the following Pennsylvania exams:

  • Life Exam:  100 multiple choice questions; exam time allotment is 2 hours; fee is $43

However, our course does not fully meet the needs of students for the Adjuster – Property and Casualty, including Workers Compensation and Crop exam.

Important Note:  Our course packages are designed to help you pass the exam. Consider using our course materials only after you have taken an approved Pennsylvania prelicensing education course, and need help passing your exam.

How do I sign up for the exam?2021-08-23T04:38:03-06:00

Pennsylvania contracts with PSI Services which provides for online registration and provides the insurance exams at multiple testing centers in Pennsylvania. The biggest bit of advice we can you give is to try to schedule your exam several weeks in advance. This does a couple of good things. First, it lets you put your study plan of action in place and provides an incentive to stay on track. Second, you want to make sure you have a spot when you are ready to take the exam.

If you need to change your date, that is normally not a problem, but you should do so with enough warning to avoid a penalty. The Licensing & Testing tab on this page provides you with succinct directions.

Go to the PSI Services website to schedule your exam.

Our course materials include General Knowledge National exam material and General Knowledge State Law exam material. HOWEVER, about 15-20% of your exam has content unique to your state AND you will need access from another source for that content. You will have state law materials that are unique to your state from your prelicensing course provider.

We recommend that you use our materials and then supplement with your education provider’s state law rules and regulations to best prep for the exam.

Go here for an approved provider list. Also see under the Licensing & Testing tab more detailed testing and licensing information.

Important Note:  Our course packages are designed to help you pass the exam.

Which package is your best seller and which do you recommend?2021-08-23T04:25:50-06:00

The National Exam Prep Package is the best seller and is our recommended package. When it comes to passing your insurance exam, it stands to reason that you need to take all reasonable measures to get through the first time. You want to minimize retakes and the lost time and income that comes from not passing your exam as quickly and efficiently as possible. You should really consider putting all of Professor Furniss’ learning tools to work helping prep you for your insurance licensing exam. The cost is very affordable and is a small investment into your future career.

Which exam prep package is best for me?2021-07-27T13:09:03-06:00
  • Practice Questions Package ($69). The Practice Questions Package contains Professor Furniss’ test bank only and is really designed for someone who has already seriously studied the material, has already taken the exam, but still needs only a very small bump in test score to get over the finish line. This package is designed for students who are already pretty confident in their understanding of the material and need that tiny push over the finish line.
  • Practice Questions PLUS Package ($84). For an extra $15, the Practice Questions PLUS package beefs up the Practice Questions Package by adding Professor Furniss’ Super Sheets. This package is for that person who has studied the material and taken the exam but still needs a very small exam score bump. By adding the Super Sheets to the test bank, this package may give you a much needed extra boost in your understanding of the material to pass the exam.
  • National Exam Prep Package ($119). The National Exam Prep Package is our most popular and recommended package. This package contains all of Professor Furniss’ learning tools. Nothing is left out. If you have never taken the insurance exam, this is the package that you must have. Or, if you have taken the exam one or more times and need to make sure that you really understand the material, this is the package for you. Professor Furniss believes that if you need more than just a couple of points boost in your exam score, that it is worth the price difference to purchase this package. You will save enough money on one retest fee to pay for the extra cost of this package.
What are the differences among your three types of exam prep packages?2021-07-27T13:09:03-06:00
  • National Practice Questions Package ($69). This package just includes the practice question test bank. This includes our 2000+ question test bank, “exam simulation mode” timed exams to ensure readiness, exam review mode to “learn as you go,” answer explanations for all questions, and unlimited practice exam combinations. We use best in class technology which is mobile friendly, interactive, and available 24/7/365. We also provide outstanding service with 60-day access.
  • National Practice Questions PLUS Package ($84). This package includes everything in the Practice Questions Package (2000+ question test bank), PLUS Professor Furniss’ Super Sheets. There are 26 or more Super Sheets in each package, a Numbers Sheet, with critical must know numbers (e.g. 10 days, 31 days, 45 days, etc.), and a Math Sheet, which contains math formulas and problems tested on the exam. These Super Sheets (cheat sheets) were developed by Professor Furniss to condense reams of material into a few sheets for last minute test cramming; and his math and number sheets are designed so that the critical numbers are easy to memorize and math problems can be practiced so that you can ace your exam. We also provide outstanding service with 60-day access.
  • National Exam Prep Package ($119). This package includes every learning tool we offer. Specifically, it includes everything in the Practice Questions Package (2000+ question test bank) AND the Practice Questions PLUS Package (26+ Super Sheets). In addition, this recommended package contains all of the additional learning tools designed by Professor Furniss. This includes an easy and fun to read, comprehensive, electronic and printable manual that highlights test tips and critical points, and ranks chapters based on difficulty and importance. It also includes Quick Review Slides with built in Rapid Fire Question and Answer (Q&A) Drills to make complex points easy to remember by driving the critical test points home. Professor Furniss developed this complete package with different learning styles in mind by providing multiple avenues to review material so you are ready for your licensing exam. We also provide outstanding service with 60-day access. Plus, with the National Exam Prep Package, we offer free 60 day extensions if needed.
How long do I have access to your online material once I subscribe to a course package?2021-07-27T13:09:03-06:00

We provide 60 days’ online access for all packages. With the National Exam Prep Package, we provide an additional 60 day extension at no charge. For the National Practice Questions and the National Practice Questions PLUS Packages, you have access for 60 days with no extension. Of course, you may purchase an additional package if you need extra time.

What is included in your insurance exam National Practice Questions Package?2021-08-23T04:25:03-06:00

Our National Practice Questions Package includes access to the test bank only. The test bank does contain all of the same test questions as our National Exam Prep Package. And, you can practice questions in Exam Review Mode or Exam Simulation Mode, or both. Practice Questions Package provide you with:

  • Exam Review Mode, designed to allow you to practice multiple choice questions like the ones on your real exam and receive instant feedback on each question along with answer explanations so you are not left wondering why you missed the question.
  • Exam Simulation Mode, which provides the same questions found in Exam Review Mode, but timed, like the real exam (our test bank is one the most comprehensive and well written test banks that we are aware of).
  • The Practice Questions Package does not include our manual, Quick Review Slides with Rapid Fire Q&As, or Super Sheets.
  • 60 days’ access.

If you want Super Sheets in addition to our Practice Questions, you should purchase our National Practice Questions PLUS Package. If you want all of our learning tools, which we highly recommend, you should purchase our National Exam Prep Package.

Both the Super Sheets and manuals are PDF format and printable. We just ask that you honor our copyright and single use license and only use our materials for your own exam prep. This allows us to keep our prices competitive for future individuals like you.

Do I receive a printed manual with the National Exam Prep Package?2021-08-23T04:17:17-06:00

With the National Exam Prep Package, you will receive access to two great digital manuals – one covering national materials and one covering general state rules and regulations. Both are in electronic, PDF format and are downloadable and printable. You are free to have your local copy shop print and bind a copy for you. Please note that we do not include our manuals with our Practice Questions Package or our Practice Questions PLUS Package, only with the National Exam Prep Package.

Will I receive a Certificate of Completion after taking your course?2021-08-23T04:17:06-06:00

When using our materials to help you pass your exam, a certification of completion is not issued. Study our materials at your own pace and take the exam when you are scheduled with PSI Services. No certificate will be given from us. However, you will have received a needed certificate from your Pennsylvania approved prelicensing education provider.

Use us to help push you over the top on the exam. That’s where our materials and learning tools shine.

What is the best way to study or go through your complete set of prep materials?2021-07-27T13:09:00-06:00

One size does not fit everyone. While we do provide a suggested pathway: Read the chapter, then go through Quick Review Slides with Rapid Fire Drills, then go through the test bank for that chapter using the Exam Review Mode. Finally, do a quick read over that chapter’s Super Sheet and take our chapter questions in a timed exam (Exam Simulation Mode). Having said all of that, it is really up to you. You are free to move around our material with no restrictions in order to find a learning pathway that works best for you.

How long should I plan for to complete your course materials?2021-08-23T04:18:30-06:00

If you purchase our National Exam Prep Package, and you are just beginning the study of insurance, you should consider spending approximately 3 weeks. Some students report being ready in one week; others take 5-6 weeks. We think that planning a solid daily schedule over 2-3 weeks works for most students. If you just need a small bump in your exam score, you may be able to “fast track” your studies using one or more of our learning tools. You should use our materials after you have completed your required prelicensing education from an Pennsylvania approved provider. Then, in order to either fully prep for the exam the first time or to help you over the hump in the event that you are falling short of a passing score, you should consider using our materials.

Our focus in Pennsylvania is to help you pass your insurance licensing exam the fastest and easiest way possible. We have not applied to become an approved prelicensing education provider in Pennsylvania. Purchasing our materials does not meet your prelicensing education requirement. Use our materials with the state specific content from your prelicensing education provider to prep for the exam and get the extra edge needed to pass the exam.

How are your National Exam Prep Packages set up?2021-08-23T04:18:47-06:00

You can prepare for the exam many different ways with our course materials. Our courses allow you to move forward, backward, skip material, and study the way you want to. You can focus on your weak areas if you wish. Or, review the Quick Review Slides on areas that you are strong on while digging deeper into our material for areas that you need to obtain more in depth understanding.

Click through – skip around – study what you are having most difficulty with. With our materials, you are free to be in control of how you approach your studies – choose the learning pathway that works best for you.

What is included in your National Exam Prep Packages?2021-09-08T02:43:59-06:00

Our National Exam Prep Packages include every exam prep tool we offer in a single package. Specifically, they include a(n):

  • Easy To Read Manual.  Our course packages include a comprehensive, yet easy to read, manual with important test points highlighted, each paragraph star ranked based on topic importance, critical test points identified, and loads of examples.

    Here is what Joe, one of our very satisfied customers from Virginia, had to say about our manual:“Sorry I have not been able to get back to you, I have been really busy trying to run one business I own while studying for the insurance exams and getting everything in place with the insurance business purchase. I read your entire book in 3 days. Not only to get as much material in my head as possible, but because it was actually interesting reading. I don’t know how you do it, but your books are so much easier and more enjoyable to read than anything else I have put in my hands. I also have two other well-known companies’ books that I have used in getting my license but there is absolutely no comparison in the books. I am not just saying it to be nice. I hope everyone is able to find you on the internet because not only are you a great group of guys, your books are incredible. You will hear more from me and I WILL be sending many more people your way. I will not forget what you guys did for me. If you ever want a testimonial for your advertising let me know, I would be honored to share my experience with everyone. Thanks once again.″

Our National Property and Casualty Insurance Exam Prep Package is designed for the following Pennsylvania exams:

If I have questions on testing, licensing, or need help with course or exam content, is there someone I can call or email?2021-08-19T16:35:12-06:00

The Oregon Division of Financial Regulation (ORDFR) is your authoritative source of insurance licensing information. Their website is a very good place to start. The PSI testing service has loads of helpful information as well.

In addition, we have provided detailed articles and helpful links to answer most of your testing and licensing questions.

Just click on the Licensing and Testing tab (above) to track down those details. You can also call us at 800-270-1385 or email us so that we can give you the assistance you deserve and get you fast tracked to success.

We are normally available by phone Monday-Friday from 8 am-6 pm (MST), but you can often catch us in the office over the weekends and during the evenings. We monitor our email except when we are sleeping and will try to respond to you within just a few minutes of your email inquiry. In your email inquiry, if you want to leave us your phone number, we can also call you right back.

Do you have any helpful articles on test taking tips, passing the exam, and licensing in Oregon?2021-08-27T11:32:10-06:00

Yes. Professor Furniss has written several articles designed to give you more insight into taking the exam and getting your license in Oregon.

Once I complete the course and pass the exam, what do I do to become licensed?2021-08-19T16:33:28-06:00

You must apply for your license after you pass your exam. In Oregon, you must submit a completed application within 12 months of passing the exam. You apply online through an organization called National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR).

NIPR’s Helpdesk:  855-674-6477

NIPR’s Email

Consider working with your supervisor, contact the Oregon Division of Financial Regulation (ORDFR), or email us or give us a call at 800-270-1385 and we can point you in the right direction. However, remember that the Oregon Division of Financial Regulation (ORDFR) is the official agency in Oregon that you should rely on for information regarding insurance licensing matters.

Make sure you obtain your fingerprinting through PSI Services immediately before you apply for your license, as the ORDFR only has access to your fingerprint data for 30 days. If the fingerprinting data is stale, you will have to spend another fee and get your fingerprinting done again.

What are the requirements for me to be eligible to obtain an insurance license in Oregon?2021-08-19T16:29:31-06:00

The Oregon Division of Financial Regulation (ORDFR) will issue an insurance license to individuals who:

  • Are at least eighteen (18) years old
  • Have completed an approved prelicensing education course designated for the particular exam/license applied for
  • Have passed the proper licensing examination
  • Have completed a Fingerprint Background Check (after passing the exam and immediately/preferably one day before applying for the license)
  • Have submitted a completed online application with $75 fee (subject to change) (exam certificate is valid for 12 months from date of passing the exam)
  • Meets all other applicable license requirements
  • Submits proof of citizenship
  • Have not committed an act for which a license may be denied, see here
How do I know what is on the exam?2021-07-27T13:08:51-06:00

You don’t. However, each state publishes an Exam Outline, which provides a listing of exam topics. We have used these outlines and lots of other sources, including researching insurance rules and regulations, to develop our course materials. We don’t find these outlines too helpful in and of themselves, as they are fairly general in nature. That’s why we reference many different sources of information to develop our materials.

Are the insurance exams difficult?2021-08-19T16:21:38-06:00

Yes. The insurance exams are difficult. It takes solid preparation using the best course materials available. The first time passing rate averages around 40-60%, depending on which exam you are taking.

How do you beat those odds?
We recommend that you plan to prepare for approximately three weeks in advance of when you are scheduled to take the exam. We have spent over 2000 hours putting together our exam prep materials and Professor Furniss has helped over 10,000 individuals like you obtain and maintain their professional insurance licenses. With the right material and with some good old fashioned elbow grease, you should soon pass your exam.

After you have taken your required education, and you find yourself in need help passing the exam (many students do), consider our course and exam prep materials. Professor Furniss designed his materials to help you pass the exam the fastest and easiest way possible. You will need to supplement our materials with the state insurance rules provided to you from your prelicensing education provider in order to best prepare for the exam.

Do I need to be fingerprinted to be licensed?2021-09-07T02:25:51-06:00

Yes. Oregon requires you to be fingerprinted and a background check. This is done through the company that Oregon has authorized. You may obtain your fingerprints throughout Oregon at PSI locations. (Walk-in/no reservations required.) The fee to be finger printed is $61.25 (subject to change).

Are there any special issues related to testing and COVID-19?2021-08-19T16:17:24-06:00

Yes. For a complete update by PSI testing service, please go here.

Do you have any other exam registration/preparation advice?2021-08-19T16:16:51-06:00

Please register for the exam early so that you get your preferred testing schedule. And, you must have a certificate of completion from your prelicensing education provider in hand for exam day. Don’t schedule your fingerprinting until after you pass the exam and immediately before you apply for your license through NIPR. (The reason is that your fingerprinting data is only available for 30 days to the licensing authorities so you don’t want to have too big of a gap in time; otherwise, you will have to get fingerprinted again and pay another fee.)

The homepage of PSI Services provides access to test center locations, registration services, and lots of helpful testing information. Go here to access lots of great information from PSI Services.

If you are interested in selling insurance to individuals and businesses designed to protect property or protect individuals and businesses from liability, you are likely in need of the Combined Property and Casualty license. A few people only sell insurance to individuals for their property and casualty needs and need the Personal Lines license.

To just sell health insurance, you can obtain your Accident & Health license. Our company provides exam prep for Life, Health, Property, and Casualty.

How do I sign up for the exam?2021-08-19T16:11:27-06:00

Oregon contracts with PSI Services which provides for online registration and provides the insurance exams at multiple testing centers in Oregon. The biggest bit of advice we can you give is to try to schedule your exam several weeks in advance. This does a couple of good things. First, it lets you put your study plan of action in place and provides an incentive to stay on track. Second, you want to make sure you have a spot when you are ready to take the exam.

If you need to change your date, that is normally not a problem, but you should do so with enough warning to avoid a penalty. The Licensing & Testing tab on this page provides you with succinct directions.

Go to the PSI Services website to schedule your exam.

Of course, you may purchase an additional package if you need extra time.

What is included in your National Practice Questions PLUS Package?2021-08-19T15:56:56-06:00

Our National Practice Questions PLUS Package contains all of the questions and interactions (e.g. Exam Review Mode, Exam Simulation Mode, etc.) found in our National Practice Questions Package. In addition, it contains all of our Super Sheets, including a Numbers Sheet and a Math Sheet. For property and casualty packages, we have a total of 28 Super Sheets and for life and health packages, we have a total of 32 Super Sheets. Like with our Practice Questions Package, we provide 60 days’ online access with our Practice Questions PLUS Package.

Important Note:  Our course packages are designed to help you pass the exam. Consider using our course materials only after you have taken an approved Oregon prelicensing education course, and need help passing your exam. Our focus in Oregon is to help you pass your insurance licensing exam the fastest and easiest way possible. We have not applied to become an approved prelicensing education provider in Oregon. Purchasing our materials does not meet your prelicensing education requirement. You will need to supplement our materials with the Oregon specific rules provided by your prelicensing education provider.

What is included in your insurance exam National Practice Questions Package?2021-08-19T15:56:12-06:00

Our National Practice Questions Package includes access to the test bank only. The test bank does contain all of the same test questions as our National Exam Prep Package. And, you can practice questions in Exam Review Mode or Exam Simulation Mode, or both. Practice Questions Package provide you with:

  • Exam Review Mode, designed to allow you to practice multiple choice questions like the ones on your real exam and receive instant feedback on each question along with answer explanations so you are not left wondering why you missed the question.
  • Exam Simulation Mode, which provides the same questions found in Exam Review Mode, but timed, like the real exam (our test bank is one the most comprehensive and well written test banks that we are aware of).
  • The Practice Questions Package does not include our manual, Quick Review Slides with Rapid Fire Q&As, or Super Sheets.
  • 60 days’ access.

If you want Super Sheets in addition to our Practice Questions, you should purchase our National Practice Questions PLUS Package. If you want all of our learning tools, which we highly recommend, you should purchase our National Exam Prep Package.

Are my course materials printable?2021-07-27T13:08:46-06:00

Both the Super Sheets and manuals are PDF format and printable. We just ask that you honor our copyright and single use license and only use our materials for your own exam prep. This allows us to keep our prices competitive for future individuals like you.

Do I receive a printed manual with the National Exam Prep Package?2021-08-19T15:46:11-06:00

With the National Exam Prep Package, you will receive access to two great digital manuals – one covering national materials and one covering general state rules and regulations. Both are in electronic, PDF format and are downloadable and printable. You are free to have your local copy shop print and bind a copy for you. Please note that we do not include our manuals with our Practice Questions Package or our Practice Questions PLUS Package, only with the National Exam Prep Package.

Will I receive a Certificate of Completion after taking your course?2021-08-19T15:50:20-06:00

When using our materials to help you pass your exam, a certification of completion is not issued. Study our materials at your own pace and take the exam when you are scheduled with PSI Services. No certificate will be given from us. However, you will have received a needed certificate from your Oregon approved prelicensing education provider.

Use us to help push you over the top on the exam. That’s where our materials and learning tools shine.

What is the best way to study or go through your complete set of prep materials?2021-07-27T13:08:46-06:00

One size does not fit everyone. While we do provide a suggested pathway: Read the chapter, then go through Quick Review Slides with Rapid Fire Drills, then go through the test bank for that chapter using the Exam Review Mode. Finally, do a quick read over that chapter’s Super Sheet and take our chapter questions in a timed exam (Exam Simulation Mode). Having said all of that, it is really up to you. You are free to move around our material with no restrictions in order to find a learning pathway that works best for you.

How long should I plan for to complete your course materials?2021-08-19T15:50:33-06:00

If you purchase our National Exam Prep Package, and you are just beginning the study of insurance, you should consider spending approximately 3 weeks. Some students report being ready in one week; others take 5-6 weeks. We think that planning a solid daily schedule over 2-3 weeks works for most students. If you just need a small bump in your exam score, you may be able to “fast track” your studies using one or more of our learning tools. You should use our materials after you have completed your required prelicensing education from an Oregon approved provider. Then, in order to either fully prep for the exam the first time or to help you over the hump in the event that you are falling short of a passing score, you should consider using our materials.

Our focus in Oregon is to help you pass your insurance licensing exam the fastest and easiest way possible. We have not applied to become an approved prelicensing education provider in Oregon. Purchasing our materials does not meet your prelicensing education requirement. Use our materials with the state specific content from your prelicensing education provider to prep for the exam and get the extra edge needed to pass the exam.
