Well, I made a decision a few months ago to make a career change (in my early 30s) and had a personal contact that was willing to hire a brand new agent with no experience. I began my pre-licensing courses in Health, Life, LTC and passed all state exams and have since moved on to P&C. Here's the catch... In order for me to begin on May 1st, I have to pass both state exams by April 20th. I am currently still working at my previous job approximately 50-60 hrs per week and in any free time at home, had my face in the computer studying P&C. I am 75% through my prelicense Property course and have found it challenging as the material is foreign to me. I am hoping to get my state exam admission ticket by Monday and take the state exam Tuesday and Wednesday (hopefully won't need to). Once that is complete, will move on to Casualty and will hope to knock it out in a week. Realistic or not? Just wanted to get your thoughts on my timeline and also hear about your experiences if you have passed these tests with no prior experience/knowledge.
