Professor Furniss’ learning tools that make retaining key exam points fun and easy

Prometric – For updated information on the steps taken to protect your health and well-being, please visit COVID-19 Update Page.
Must Read:  Our National online, self-paced, exam prep courses offered in Maryland do not meet your state’s prelicensing education requirement. They contain national insurance and general state law rules, but do not contain your exam’s specific state law content (about 15-20% of your exam). If you have taken an approved prelicensing education course, have a valid certificate, and still need a passing score, use our materials and supplement with the state law material from your prelicensing provider. Designed by award winning Professor Jerry Furniss, our interactive exam prep materials are excellent for getting you over the finish line the fastest and easiest way possible.

OUR NATIONAL INSURANCE EXAM PREP PACKAGES

Important Note:  Our National Life/Health and Property/Casualty course packages are designed to help you pass your Maryland insurance licensing exam the fastest and easiest way possible. However, they are not designed to meet your required prelicensing exam education. If you have received your required prelicensing education from an approved Maryland prelicensing education provider, have a valid course completion certificate, and still need help passing your exam, then consider our course packages. Combine our prep material with your prelicensing education provider’s specific state law content, and position yourself to pass your exam quickly. It is proven to be an extremely effective test prep strategy.

Our main prep package provides all of our learning tools into one comprehensive package, which is designed to help you pass your Maryland insurance exam the fastest and easiest way possible.

WHAT’S INCLUDED IN OUR RECOMMENDED PACKAGE?2021-07-27T13:07:31-06:00

  • Super Sheets:  Designed for each chapter of material, our Super Sheets are Professor Furniss’ version of cheat sheets designed to condense the material even further, enabling you to do last minute cramming.

WHICH PACKAGE IS BEST FOR YOU?2021-07-27T13:07:32-06:00

Practice Questions Package ($69).  The Practice Questions Package contains Professor Furniss’ test bank only and is really designed for someone who has already seriously studied the material, has already taken the exam, but still needs only a very small bump in test score to get over the finish line. This package is designed for that person is who is already pretty confident in her understanding of the material and needs that tiny push over the finish line.

Practice Questions PLUS Package ($84).  For an extra $15, the Practice Questions PLUS package beefs up the Practice Questions Package by adding Professor Furniss’ Super Sheets. This package is for that person who has studied the material and taken the exam but still needs a very small exam score bump. By adding the Super Sheets to the test bank, this package may give you a much needed extra boost in your understanding of the material to pass the exam.

National Exam Prep Package ($119).  The National Exam Prep Package is our most popular and recommended package. This package contains all of Professor Furniss’ learning tools. Nothing is left out. If you have never taken the insurance exam, this is the package that you must have. Or, if you have taken the exam one or more times and need to make sure that you really understand the material, this is the package for you. Professor Furniss believes that if you need more than just a couple of points boost in your exam score, that it is worth the price difference to purchase this package. You will save enough money in one retest fee to pay for the extra cost of this package.

Professor Furniss’ Maryland Blogs

Professor Furniss has written several articles specifically about how to prepare for and obtain your Maryland insurance license. Please review his articles and if you still have questions, please contact us and we will help you out if you still have questions.

“Thanks for your response so quickly. I remembered lots of the info from the course, and was able to pass both the health and limited lines.”

Erica H., insurance licensing student

“I wanted to thank you for the excellent job you did…. I am pleased to say that I passed both exams.”

Sarah O., insurance licensing student

“Sorry I have not been able to get back to you, I have been really busy trying to run one business I own while studying for the insurance exams and getting everything in place with the insurance business purchase. I read your entire book in 3 days. Not only to get as much material in my head as possible, but because it was actually interesting reading. I don’t know how you do it, but your books are so much easier and more enjoyable to read than anything else I have put in my hands. I also have two other well known companies’ books that I have used in getting my license but there is absolutely no comparison in the books. I am not just saying it to be nice. I hope everyone is able to find you on the internet because not only are you a great group of guys, your books are incredible. You will hear more from me and I WILL be sending many more people your way. I will not forget what you guys did for me. If you ever want a testimonial for your advertising let me know, I would be honored to share my experience with everyone. Thanks once again.″

Joe F, agency owner

“I just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know that I passed my tests and to let you know how much I appreciated your course.”

Stacy H., insurance licensing student

″I am licensed insurance agent in Life, Disability, Property, Casualty, and Surety, and I am a licensed as a consultant in Life and Disability Insurance.
Over the course of several years I have taken multiple classes from Dr. Furniss including university courses, and insurance licensing classes. I have found Professor Furniss’ lectures and classes to be informative, concise and easy to learn from. His presentation style helps maintain the attention of the audience and engage them in the information being presented.
I would recommend highly recommend his services.”

Morgan H., insurance sales executive

“I REALLY enjoyed your course. You certainly have a dynamic, entertaining style of driving those points home. You sure made a dry subject very memorable and interesting!”

Maria K., insurance licensing student

“I recently took your course…. By the time Saturday rolled around, the test was a formality- it was like having the answer key.”

Ben R., insurance licensing student

″I am an X-high school teacher and 31 year multi-line insurance agent and a few months ago I attended a “Long Term Care Insurance Partnership Plan Seminar” taught by long term law professor Dr. Jerry Furniss. I personally have attended so many classes in my lifetime I can not even come close to counting them all- Dr. Furniss stands head and shoulders above any instructor I have ever taken a course from. We expected all the information could be covered in two hours, however he kept the entire class spell bound for an entire day. I have simply never seen what could easily have been a dry subject turned into such an interesting, humorous, serious set of examples and circumstances explained in such a straightforward way that even an average high school student would have been thoroughly prepared by the end of our day.
Dr. Furniss, thank you so much for the many hours you put in required for such an extraordinary delivery.″

Important Note:  Our National Life/Health and Property/Casualty course packages are designed to help you pass your Maryland insurance licensing exam the fastest and easiest way possible. However, they are not designed to meet your required prelicensing exam education. If you have received your required prelicensing education from an approved Maryland prelicensing education provider, have a valid course completion certificate, and still need help passing your exam, then consider our course packages. Combine our prep material with your prelicensing education provider’s specific state law content, and position yourself to pass your exam quickly. It is proven to be an extremely effective test prep strategy.

Do I need approval or sponsorship before I purchase your material?2021-08-16T13:26:04-06:00

Not to purchase our materials. Our packages are designed to help you pass your exam the easiest and fastest way possible. However, Maryland does require a prelicensing education course from an approved Maryland prelicensing education provider. Go here for a list of companies (License Information Bulletin) that are approved.

So, to pass the insurance exams, you just need to take your required course and then prepare. The exams are tough, so you need very good material from a reputable exam prep company like 180 Licensing to supplement what your education provider uses.

Lots of students have taken a prelicensing course, have a valid certificate, and are still having trouble with the exam. We have highly effective courses designed to make passing the exam easier. We recommend our National Exam Prep Package for your Life and Health or Property and Casualty exam prep needs. You will need to supplement our materials with the Maryland specific rules provided by your prelicensing education provider.

Our focus in Maryland is on helping you pass your insurance licensing exam as fast and easy as is possible. However, note that purchasing our materials does not meet your prelicensing education requirement, you already need to have that taken care of.

Can I take more than one course at a time?2021-07-27T13:07:33-06:00

Yes. Although we do not recommend it, you are free to take more than one course at a time.

Why should I buy your exam prep materials?2021-08-16T13:20:44-06:00

Quite simply – to help you pass the exam the fastest and easiest way possible. Professor Furniss has spent thousands of hours designing his materials to help you pass your exam the first time. And, he has helped over 10,000 students just like you obtain and maintain their professional licenses.

We find that lots of students who have taken other courses still need some exam prep help. That’s where our courses shine. So, whether you are struggling with the exam and need a bump of a few points, or just beginning your insurance exam prep studies, we have you covered.

Important Note:  Our course packages are designed to help you pass the exam.

What is included in your National Exam Prep Packages?2021-08-16T13:33:23-06:00

Our National Exam Prep Packages include every exam prep tool we offer in a single package. Specifically, they include a(n):

  • Easy To Read Manual.  Our course packages include a comprehensive, yet easy to read, manual with important test points highlighted, each paragraph star ranked based on topic importance, critical test points identified, and loads of examples.Here is what Joe, one of our very satisfied customers from Virginia, had to say  about our manual:

    “Sorry I have not been able to get back to you, I have been really busy trying to run one business I own while studying for the insurance exams and getting everything in place with the insurance business purchase. I read your entire book in 3 days. Not only to get as much material in my head as possible, but because it was actually interesting reading. I don’t know how you do it, but your books are so much easier and more enjoyable to read than anything else I have put in my hands. I also have two other well-known companies’ books that I have used in getting my license but there is absolutely no comparison in the books. I am not just saying it to be nice. I hope everyone is able to find you on the internet because not only are you a great group of guys, your books are incredible. You will hear more from me and I WILL be sending many more people your way. I will not forget what you guys did for me. If you ever want a testimonial for your advertising let me know, I would be honored to share my experience with everyone. Thanks once again.″

  • Interactive, Mobile Friendly Course Files.  Our National Exam Prep Packages also include a collection of interactive, mobile friendly course files that focus your attention on critical test points and include the following interactive learning components:
    • Quick Review Slide Show  with Rapid Fire Question and Answer Drills, designed to let you speed up your learning
      time by quickly reviewing key points and testing your ability to answer key questions;
    • Exam Review Mode,  designed to allow you to practice multiple choice questions like the ones on your real exam and receive instant feedback on each question along with answer explanations so you are not left wondering why you missed the question;
    • Exam Simulation Mode,  which provides the same questions found in Exam Review Mode, but timed, like the real exam (our test bank is one the most comprehensive and well written test banks that we are aware of);
    • Super Sheets  for each chapter of material, which are Professor Furniss’ version of cheat sheets designed to condense the material even further enabling you to do last minute cramming. (We also developed a Super Sheet for math problems and formulas, and another Super Sheet for key numbers tested on the exams.)
    • Unlimited Help Our course packages include help from Professor Furniss and his team of trained professionals, which gives you the edge needed on the exam. Professor Furniss provides you with his direct contact information as well.
    • Free Time Extensions.  While our full exam prep course automatically provides 60 days’ access to our course files, we provide free 60 day time extensions if you need more time to prepare for the exam. We want to assist you in passing your exam in the fastest and most efficient manner possible.

How are your National Exam Prep Packages set up?2021-08-16T13:32:24-06:00

You can prepare for the exam many different ways with our course materials. Our courses allow you to move forward, backward, skip material, and study the way you want to. You can focus on your weak areas if you wish. Or, review the Quick Review Slides on areas that you are strong on while digging deeper into our material for areas that you need to obtain more in depth understanding.

Click through – skip around – study what you are having most difficulty with. With our materials, you are free to be in control of how you approach your studies – choose the learning pathway that works best for you.

How long should I plan for to complete your course materials?2021-08-16T13:32:13-06:00

If you purchase our National Exam Prep Package, and you are just beginning the study of insurance, you should consider spending approximately 3 weeks. Some students report being ready in one week; others take 5-6 weeks. We think that planning a solid daily schedule over 2-3 weeks works for most students. If you just need a small bump in your exam score, you may be able to “fast track” your studies using one or more of our learning tools. You should use our materials after you have completed your required prelicensing education from an Maryland approved provider. Then, in order to either fully prep for the exam the first time or to help you over the hump in the event that you are falling short of a passing score, you should consider using our materials.

Our focus in Maryland is to help you pass your insurance licensing exam the fastest and easiest way possible. We have not applied to become an approved prelicensing education provider in Maryland. Purchasing our materials does not meet your prelicensing education requirement. Use our materials with the state specific content from your prelicensing education provider to prep for the exam and get the extra edge needed to pass the exam.

What is the best way to study or go through your complete set of prep materials?2021-07-27T13:07:33-06:00

One size does not fit everyone. While we do provide a suggested pathway: Read the chapter, then go through Quick Review Slides with Rapid Fire Drills, then go through the test bank for that chapter using the Exam Review Mode. Finally, do a quick read over that chapter’s Super Sheet and take our chapter questions in a timed exam (Exam Simulation Mode). Having said all of that, it is really up to you. You are free to move around our material with no restrictions in order to find a learning pathway that works best for you.

Will I receive a Certificate of Completion after taking your course?2021-08-16T13:31:23-06:00

When using our materials to help you pass your exam, a certification of completion is not issued. Study our materials at your own pace and take the exam when you are scheduled with Prometric. No certificate will be given from us. However, you will have received a needed certificate from your Maryland approved prelicensing education provider.

Use us to help push you over the top on the exam. That’s where our materials and learning tools shine.

Do I receive a printed manual with the National Exam Prep Package?2021-08-16T13:30:44-06:00

With the National Exam Prep Package, you will receive access to two great digital manuals – one covering national materials and one covering general state rules and regulations. Both are in electronic, PDF format and are downloadable and printable. You are free to have your local copy shop print and bind a copy for you. Please note that we do not include our manuals with our Practice Questions Package or our Practice Questions PLUS Package, only with the National Exam Prep Package.

Are my course materials printable?2021-07-27T13:07:34-06:00

Both the Super Sheets and manuals are PDF format and printable. We just ask that you honor our copyright and single use license and only use our materials for your own exam prep. This allows us to keep our prices competitive for future individuals like you.

What is included in your insurance exam National Practice Questions Package?2021-08-16T13:37:14-06:00

Our National Practice Questions Package includes access to the test bank only. The test bank does contain all of the same test questions as our National Exam Prep Package. And, you can practice questions in Exam Review Mode or Exam Simulation Mode, or both. Practice Questions Package provide you with:

  • Exam Review Mode, designed to allow you to practice multiple choice questions like the ones on your real exam and receive instant feedback on each question along with answer explanations so you are not left wondering why you missed the question.
  • Exam Simulation Mode, which provides the same questions found in Exam Review Mode, but timed, like the real exam (our test bank is one the most comprehensive and well written test banks that we are aware of).
  • The Practice Questions Package does not include our manual, Quick Review Slides with Rapid Fire Q&As, or Super Sheets.
  • 60 days’ access.

If you want Super Sheets in addition to our Practice Questions, you should purchase our National Practice Questions PLUS Package. If you want all of our learning tools, which we highly recommend, you should purchase our National Exam Prep Package.

In addition, it contains all of our Super Sheets, including a Numbers Sheet and a Math Sheet.

We provide 60 days’ online access for all packages. With the National Exam Prep Package, we provide an additional 60 day extension at no charge. For the National Practice Questions and the National Practice Questions PLUS Packages, you have access for 60 days with no extension. Of course, you may purchase an additional package if you need extra time.

What are the differences among your three types of exam prep packages?2021-07-27T13:07:34-06:00
  • National Practice Questions Package ($69). This package just includes the practice question test bank. This includes our 2000+ question test bank, “exam simulation mode” timed exams to ensure readiness, exam review mode to “learn as you go,” answer explanations for all questions, and unlimited practice exam combinations. We use best in class technology which is mobile friendly, interactive, and available 24/7/365. We also provide outstanding service with 60-day access.
  • National Practice Questions PLUS Package ($84). This package includes everything in the Practice Questions Package (2000+ question test bank), PLUS Professor Furniss’ Super Sheets. There are 26 or more Super Sheets in each package, a Numbers Sheet, with critical must know numbers (e.g. 10 days, 31 days, 45 days, etc.), and a Math Sheet, which contains math formulas and problems tested on the exam. These Super Sheets (cheat sheets) were developed by Professor Furniss to condense reams of material into a few sheets for last minute test cramming; and his math and number sheets are designed so that the critical numbers are easy to memorize and math problems can be practiced so that you can ace your exam. We also provide outstanding service with 60-day access.
  • National Exam Prep Package ($119). This package includes every learning tool we offer. Specifically, it includes everything in the Practice Questions Package (2000+ question test bank) AND the Practice Questions PLUS Package (26+ Super Sheets). In addition, this recommended package contains all of the additional learning tools designed by Professor Furniss. This includes an easy and fun to read, comprehensive, electronic and printable manual that highlights test tips and critical points, and ranks chapters based on difficulty and importance. It also includes Quick Review Slides with built in Rapid Fire Question and Answer (Q&A) Drills to make complex points easy to remember by driving the critical test points home. Professor Furniss developed this complete package with different learning styles in mind by providing multiple avenues to review material so you are ready for your licensing exam. We also provide outstanding service with 60-day access. Plus, with the National Exam Prep Package, we offer free 60 day extensions if needed.
Which exam prep package is best for me?2021-07-27T13:07:34-06:00
  • Practice Questions Package ($69). The Practice Questions Package contains Professor Furniss’ test bank only and is really designed for someone who has already seriously studied the material, has already taken the exam, but still needs only a very small bump in test score to get over the finish line. This package is designed for students who are already pretty confident in their understanding of the material and need that tiny push over the finish line.
  • Practice Questions PLUS Package ($84). For an extra $15, the Practice Questions PLUS package beefs up the Practice Questions Package by adding Professor Furniss’ Super Sheets. This package is for that person who has studied the material and taken the exam but still needs a very small exam score bump. By adding the Super Sheets to the test bank, this package may give you a much needed extra boost in your understanding of the material to pass the exam.
  • National Exam Prep Package ($119). The National Exam Prep Package is our most popular and recommended package. This package contains all of Professor Furniss’ learning tools. Nothing is left out. If you have never taken the insurance exam, this is the package that you must have. Or, if you have taken the exam one or more times and need to make sure that you really understand the material, this is the package for you. Professor Furniss believes that if you need more than just a couple of points boost in your exam score, that it is worth the price difference to purchase this package. You will save enough money on one retest fee to pay for the extra cost of this package.
Which package is your best seller and which do you recommend?2021-08-16T13:38:18-06:00

The National Exam Prep Package is the best seller and is our recommended package. When it comes to passing your insurance exam, it stands to reason that you need to take all reasonable measures to get through the first time. You want to minimize retakes and the lost time and income that comes from not passing your exam as quickly and efficiently as possible. You should really consider putting all of Professor Furniss’ learning tools to work helping prep you for your insurance licensing exam. The cost is very affordable and is a small investment into your future career.

What are the steps to obtain an insurance license in Maryland?2021-08-16T13:44:53-06:00
  • Take your required prelicensing education course and obtain your course certificate
  • Prep for your exam (3-5 weeks; includes course time)
    • Already Taken an Approved Course and Still Need Help Passing the Exam?
      Purchase our National Exam Prep Package at least 3 weeks before you next plan to take your exam. Plan to do daily prep and to take the exam immediately after you finish the materials.
  • Make an examination reservation (online) and pay the exam fee. Register several days in advance. Exams may also be taken online (Exam Provider: Prometric).
  • Take and pass your licensing exam (Prometric test centers)
  • Apply for your license (Online licensing service: NIPR)
How do I sign up for the exam?2021-08-16T13:46:46-06:00

Maryland contracts with Prometric which provides for online registration and provides the insurance exams at multiple testing centers in Maryland. The biggest bit of advice we can you give is to try to schedule your exam several weeks in advance. This does a couple of good things. First, it lets you put your study plan of action in place and provides an incentive to stay on track. Second, you want to make sure you have a spot when you are ready to take the exam.

If you need to change your date, that is normally not a problem, but you should do so with enough warning to avoid a penalty. The Licensing & Testing tab on this page provides you with succinct directions.

Go to the Prometric website to schedule your exam.

Which exam should I sign up for, how much does it cost, and how long of an exam is it?2021-08-30T04:26:27-06:00

If you are interested in selling insurance to individuals and businesses designed to protect property or protect individuals and businesses from liability, you are likely in need of the Combined Property and Casualty license. A few people only sell insurance to individuals for their property and casualty needs and need the Personal Lines license. For selling only life insurance, you could obtain your Life license, but most individuals pick up the Combined Life/Accident & Health or Sickness (Disability) license. To just sell health insurance, you can obtain your Accident & Health or Sickness (Disability) license. Our company provides exam prep for Life, Health, Property, and Casualty.

The first time passing rate averages around 40-60%, depending on which exam you are taking. How do you beat those odds? We recommend that you plan to prepare for approximately three weeks in advance of when you are scheduled to take the exam.

How do I know what is on the exam?2021-07-27T13:07:37-06:00

You don’t. However, each state publishes an Exam Outline, which provides a listing of exam topics. We have used these outlines and lots of other sources, including researching insurance rules and regulations, to develop our course materials. We don’t find these outlines too helpful in and of themselves, as they are fairly general in nature. That’s why we reference many different sources of information to develop our materials.

What are the requirements for me to be eligible to obtain an insurance license in Maryland?2021-08-16T14:02:33-06:00

You must apply for your license after you pass your exam. In Maryland, you must submit a completed application within 6 months of passing the exam. You apply online through an organization called National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR).
