When I decided to make a career change, I didn't have the luxury of taking a lot of courses and time to study. I needed to jump right in and start working as an assistant. I couldn't without my Group 1 license. I finished the book in one week, practiced the tests on the CD and passed the exam the first time.

The book is an easy read, although there are a couple of technical areas which could use a little more depth. The chapter tests help point out areas to review and the CD was a big help going back over the entire book.

All in all, it was worth the price.

In regard to "Exam Cram, Life and Health" I would recommend this book to my adult children if they want to pass the California exam. In addition to being a great test preparation book, I was able to get my computer to read the book to me, by using Adobe and Microsoft text-to-speech programming, which is free to the general public. This book was much better than the text provided by the school. It even includes information needed to open my own business.

Good luck, Bob.

It coverd the same stuff as my course material, but in some cases it was easier to understand and it had additional test questions included to help me study. I passed the test the first time.

This is a great cram for your test. It helped me pass mine! I do have to say that this isn't State Specific, so make sure that you're also pulling your state specific laws from the Department of Insurance website in your state.

Exam Cram's Life and Health insurance license exam book is an excellent supplemental learning tool that I used as a companion text along with the course I took to prepare for the California exam. I went through a popular online course as an alternative to class room instruction, and since the text for the course was completely online I wanted to have a hard copy text to study as well. This book seemed like the best choice.

I got the book a couple of days before my test date, and before going through it I wasn't as confident. However, the book is structured well, written clearly, and written to emphasize the most important facts needed to pass the exam, instead of minutiae. By the day of the test I still was a little concerned due to the volume of information covered but much more confident than I had been before getting the book. The test was moderately difficult, but I was among the first to finish. I think I may have finished before any of the other Life and Health exam takers, and I did indeed pass (I have been told that many people don't pass on their first try with that exam). I'm not entirely sure I would have been successful without the book; I know for a fact that I wouldn't have finished as quickly without it. Some have criticized this book for not having state specific information in it, but I don't find that criticism to be all that valid. The information presented in the book may not have been written specifically for California, but the content was almost identical to the content of my California-specific online course. Additionally, very few of the questions on the exam were specific to California anyway. I highly recommend this book based on personal experience. I have also purchased the Property and Casualty Exam Cram book but have yet to take that exam.

I paid for an online course to try and pass my Life and Health class and failed. I than spoke to a friend of mine who said to buy this book and read it twice and make sure you do all of the questions over and over. Man o man was he right. I went from failing the test to scoring very high.

Now you have to take some type of class to get the hours so you will have information from your class. Add in that info with this book and you will pass. Make sure you use the CD to go over all of the questions. Make out your own cue cards. Write the answer down on one and the questions on others and mix them all up and match them. I did this over and over until I beat this info into my brain.

Now I am a life insurance producer who makes in the low 6 figures with no complaints...

great format and actually interesting to read. This subject cant be broken down and organized any better. Each topic explained well, and given quick examples, which makes it much easier to understand. Short exams after each chapter, which helps reinforce your learning. CD included to practice like the actual exam - what else could you want.

Book is so overpriced and the CD no longer works and is outdated since the company Bisys was bought out. They offer a more expensive book with a CD that works and has support. I feel that they are exploiting the fact that we need this book. Information is also outdated.
