Exam Preparation Approaches
~ You are responsible for your preparation to pass needed exam(s) the first time
~ NOTE - It appears that about 30% of test takers fail the exam.  This need not occur.  Discussions afterwards show that four factors contribute to this.  (1) Lack of study (not being familiar with all the laws and rules, although this does not mean memorized and you can focus more on the preneed content, you must also be able to find any content in any of the referenced documents).  (2) Relying too much on previous background and again not studying thoroughly.  (3) Unnecessary mistakes, such as not watching the time and not answering all the questions, not taking material as it is open book, etc.  (4) Being surprized and not adapting to the language and questions format on the exam. 
~ Note - This website is a preparation aid.  The practice questions available in this website are not an absolute indication of readiness.  DO NOT treat your preparation for this exam lightly.  The language used on the State Exam will be different and seek to add some complexity beyond that used here.  Solid preparation goes beyond simply being able to find information from an open book.  You need to prepare with some foundational information and have contextual understanding in areas.  As the exam is open book, this does not mean  memorization, but you must have a understanding as to where information is and use the book to get the specific question detail.  Have that sense of hunger and be willing to pay the price of preparation.  Treat your preparation and the exam with respect and you will do fine. 
~ Note - The exam is open book.  That means taking your own printed copies of the rules and laws contained in this site.  Keep the following in mind:  (1) You can underline and highlight.  (2) You cannot have any written notes on your material.  (2) You can have perminent locating tabs, but you cannot have "Post-Its" or other temporary tabs.
 
~ To assure a first time pass of your exam(s) we have set practice passing scores of 90%

Approach 1
~ The exam is open-book.  You may take your study material that you are familiar with.
~ Fully study the above four references.  You will have a knowledge of DOPL, its board, the funeral Division, etc. and know information relevant to funeral directors, funeral director interns, and preneed agents.  This is a total of 75 pages.

Approach 2
~ The exam is open-book.  You may take your study material that you are familiar with.
~ Study preneed relevant sections.  This will reduce the amount of study material by less than half.  Your preneed exam notification suggests only preneed related subjects are needed by stating exam notification of "UT Preneed Saleperson Exam; UT Preneed Salesperson Portion."  The word "portion" suggests a focus on preneed subjects.
~   3 questions are from DOPL references 58-1 and R156-1.  It appears that most people are readily answering correctly two of these questions with minimal study.  You  may choose to limit your study of these references, but be able to find information.
~ 22 questions are from Funeral Service references of 58-9 and R156-9.
~ Focus study on preneed subjects to include, but not limited to: general knowledge, unprofessional conduct, consumer protection, numbers, percentages, definitions, insurance funding, trust account funding, etc.
~ Consider only cursory review of subjects of the: Board, Division, and Director.  It is recommended that any funeral director or funeral director intern information be gleaned from what is associated with preneed information and not funeral director or funeral director unique information.  Note that some regulations related to preneed agents is similar to that of a funeral director intern, simply note this.

Exam Taking Sequence
~ Preneed Salesperson Exam - Taken First.  Treat your study with respect and pass the exam the first time.  However, if you happen not to pass the exam by taking it first the 30 day wait clock will start sooner so you can retake the exam sooner.  We will pay for retests with two average enrollments after initial repayment enrollments.
~ Life Insurance Exam - Taken Second.  Retesting of the life insurance exam can be done within 24 hours.  We will pay for retests with two average enrollments after initial repayment enrollments.

Note that you are responsible for your preparation to pass needed exams(s) the first time.
