What are the pre-licensing education requirements in Washington?
Each test taker must complete an approved course consisting of at least twenty (20) hours of instruction for each line of insurance (life, disability, property, personal lines or casualty) for which an examination is being taken. Make sure to take all certificates earned to the testing center when going in for examination!
Which Washington insurance test is the toughest?
Each insurance licensing exam presents its own challenge. Between Life and Disability (Health), students say that the Washington Disability (Health) insurance exam is the more difficult. Disability (Health) insurance policies are simply more complicated than life insurance policies.
The Property insurance exam is easier than the Casualty insurance exam. Property insurance deals with easy to understand issues – fire, flooding, earthquake, etc. On the other hand, Casualty insurance deals primarily with Liability insurance – protection against lawsuits. Casualty insurance is a more conceptual topic and one that is more difficult for students to grasp – particularly if you have never been sued.
The state portion of the Washington insurance exam is very detailed and presents its own challenges. The state topics tend to cover trivial details relating to complicated state regulations. None of this is easy, but that is why we work so hard to make the material both understandable and memorable.
This is a challenging exam. Put yourself on a strict schedule as you do your exam prep work. Be focused and disciplined as you do your insurance test prep.
Will I have adequate time to complete the Washington insurance test?
Yes. We have never had students say that they ran out of time to complete the exam. Most students finish in about half of the allotted time (up to 2 hours). The only students who ever report that they ran out of time were those who were trying to memorize questions in the event they had to repeat the exam.
Is the Washington insurance exam still given by the “paper and pencil” method?
No, this is a computerized exam. Virtually all of the students say the proctors were helpful, the room was quiet, and the computer worked well. The proctors will give you the opportunity to complete a practice exam to learn how to use the system. When you are done, you will NOT be given a copy of the exam, nor will you be given the opportunity to review particular questions and their answers. The exam will be scored immediately and you will know your results when you leave.
What is the best test prep method for the Washington insurance exam?
There is no alternative to knowing the material. There are no shortcuts to learning but there are more effective and less frustrating ways to learn. We recommend that you follow a 4-step process:
- watch and listen to the lecture;
- highlight key concepts in the text;
- review questions in the test bank; and
- send AP an email if you have any questions.
