Hello, welcome to our Hawaii Real Estate Practice Exam.

This free practice exam is here to help you master the state-specific portion of the Hawaii real estate exam. 

In Hawaii, there are 130 questions on the exam (80 national and 50 state).

For help with the national we have our free national real estate practice exam. That section can be used to study the topics featured on those 80 questions.  

For help with the state portion you're in the right place! This section can be used to study the topics featured on those 50 questions.

The two most effective study tools for the Hawaii state exam portion are using real estate practice exams, and learning Hawaii state-specific license laws.

Our state-specific real estate practice exam is a fantastic tool to help you grasp your state's real estate topics. It works just like our national real estate practice exam and is updated annually. 

Usually, using the state practice exam is enough for students to grasp the concepts. However, if you want more, the single most important resource out there is the laws they base the questions on. If you haven't looked at your state's Real Estate Statutes or Regulations, it's strongly recommended.

The test makers take snippets of laws applicable to your state and use them for the questions. We use the actual state laws to create our questions, which is why some of the questions may look familiar to you. Some websites and prep providers do not, and that's the secret. You need to know your state's laws. 

Furthermore, It would be best if you read through your laws at least once, and that's the greatest advice we can give you. Trust us, we know it can be very time-consuming, but reading through each one of these will provide you with precisely the information you need to pass. 

Best of luck, reach out if you need anything,
