    are the exam questions for this year 2012 be the same as last year 2011?

    • Jay Castillo

      Hi Jervis, no one can tell for sure but past exams have always had very similar questions from prior exams when the brokers exams were still under the DTI. It remains to be seen if this will apply under the PRC.

    Hi sir Jay!

    Thank you so much for this post!!! Very informative and helpful for us aspirants!

    I hope you don’t mind my sharing the post to my co-reviewees…we all need this info kaya I shared it with all of them and acknowledge you as my source.

    You are right, this should have come out earlier…we could have patterned the review method….at any rate, we will do our very best in preparing for the Board and leave everything to God Almighty!

    Thanks again and warm regards.

      Hi Rose, I won’t mind at all and I hope this will help. Actually it was the admin of RESAR that said it in his article (that this should have come out earlier), but my wife and I also wish this was released sooner. Good luck!
