Download the PDF or read below what I have written up what is most important for your state exam if you are in California, and where you should spend your time during your studies.
MOST IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW
The easiest and most tested chapters are General Insurance, Life Basics, Life Provisions, Term vs Whole, Annuities, Health Basics, Health Provisions, Disability Insurance, Medical Plans and State Law and I cover all of them in my Royal Treatment Class Series.
I cover all of them in my Royal Treatment Class Series. General Insurance is the foundational chapter and when you know it well, it helps with all the other chapters. Since it’s the foundation for all else, you want to be decent in knowing these terms, especially anything related to contract law.
With the life and health exam, there are separate chapters that make up the content when you look at the exam breakdown. What I like to do since I know and understand the information within all of the chapters, is to focus on the content that is the same between life and health. This way you get to double dip on your learning, and not be overwhelmed with all the things you have to know. So first, we focus on the things that overlap.
LIFE BASICS & HEALTH BASICS and LIFE PROVISIONS & HEALTH PROVISIONS
Life Basics and Health Basics overlap as well as Life Provisions and Health Provisions. Both of these chapters almost look identical between life and health, but the life provisions chapter will also include Settlement Options for Life Insurance and Non Forfeiture Options.
Life Basics is also known as completing the app, and Health Basics also known as field underwriting and both chapters are all about the application process an agent goes through when selling a policy as well as the basics of life/health insurance.
While you will learn in your studies all about the various life policies, they love to test you on Term Vs Whole and the differences between them more than other life policies.
Annuities which are actually the opposite of life insurance require mostly knowing all the definitions, Annuitant, Annuitization, Accumulation, etc.
Next up are provisions. While there are different provisions in life and different provisions in health, many of them will overlap. Provisions are things that kind of set the rules for how policies work and a good amount of them are simply definitions, and many do require memorization of numbers. Provisions also tends to be one of the largest chapters on all state exams, your state has this chapter at 20% or more of the exam, just on provisions.
For health, they really like you to know the difference between HMO and PPO, as well as a good understanding of disability insurance.
Lastly, you want to be really decent in state law. Your state exams have this chapter at around 10% or more. While every state is different and has different numbers, you need to know which numbers are important, and which things you should memorize from this chapter. I teach that information in my insurance regulations classes which are included in all my Royal Treatment Class Series.
