Will I receive the Mind Maps as soft or hard copies?


The Mind Maps were created to be used as soft copies. Many of our customers are revising on-the-go and on various platforms (mobile, tablet or laptop), so soft copy versions of the Mind Maps are more convenient. Upon confirmation of payment, the Mind Maps will be available for download (as zipped files) on the invoice. Although possible, printing in hard copy is not recommended as an A3 size print is needed. The Mind Maps will not be sent as hardcopies.

Does "lifetime access" really mean "lifetime access"?

Are the Mind Maps suitable for me?


If you are: - Revising in advance as a candidate who has just signed up for the RES course or is currently a student taking the RES course - Time-tied and in desperate need of a quick fix for the exam (aka holding onto the Buddha's foot) - Singaporeans or foreigners who do not intend to take the RES exams and want to know more about Land Laws, Rights as a Landlord, Tenant, Seller or Buyer, Responsibilities of property agents Then, yes! These Mind Maps are suitable for you!




Can I reproduce these Mind Maps for my team/company/class?

However, for Estate Agents and Trainers, you may reproduce unlimited copies for your team/company/class upon purchasing custom Mind Maps. In addition, you are entitled to these tailor-made features of the Mind Maps:

  • Unlimited reproduction within team/company/class
  • Custom watermark of your logo/name
  • A selection of color-template to choose from




Why is there a difference in price ($50 vs $80)?


Some of our customers are re-taking the RES exams. So, they might've already passed one of the two papers and don't need the Mind Maps for both papers. Hence, we sell the Paper One and Paper Two Mind Maps separately. $50 for one set of Mind Maps (Either Paper 1 or 2) $80 for two sets of Mind Maps (Both Paper 1 and 2)




Can I get a discount?


As much as we want to meet your request, we must be fair to our past customers. Since we started selling the Mind Maps in May 2018, we've never offered a discount to any of our customers. We seek your understanding on this matter.




How can I pay? PayNow or credit card?


We accept both payment methods - PayNow and credit card! 1. PayNow Please PayNow to TRT Collective LLP's UEN: T20LL1327C 2. Credit card Just follow the step-by-step instructions! Do note that you will be asked to provide your billing address. This is because payment processing companies use the billing address to verify the authorized use of such a card. It is also where companies send paper bills and bank statements. Billing addresses must match what the card-issuing bank has on file, or the attempted purchase may not go through.




Are the Mind Maps in High Definition (HD) quality?


Yes!
All our Mind Maps have been created using the award-winning XMind - Mind Mapping Software. As such, the Mind Maps you receive are of HD quality. In other words, you can zoom in until shiok!




What's the best strategy to use the Mind Maps?


1. Glance through all the Mind Maps for a brief overview and see the "style" which we used to construct the points in the Mind Maps. Take no more than 30 mins for this. It will also help you to draw connections between chapters which you might have missed out previously. 2. Cross-reference the Mind Maps with your own notes to ensure you have understood the content in the syllabus. 3. On top of the Mind Maps, another useful method to test your understanding is to complete the MCQs in the practice questions. As you try more questions, you will see the "pattern" in which the questions are phrased and the answers the examiners look for.




Do you have additional tips to pass the exams?


Yes! Take a look at the Useful Links page. We've compiled some useful tips to tricking your brain into learning more effectively.




Confirm pass one ah?​


Honestly, we would love to give you a “guaranteed pass”. Realistically, we can only share facts and our own experiences. When I (Eugene) studied for my own RES exams, I only studied these Mind Maps (didn’t even touch the thick textbook). It was enough for me to answer the questions confidently and pass on my first attempt. We've had customers who studied "last minute" (about two weeks before the exam) and gave us feedback that the Mind Maps were really helpful.




I realize that there is a seller on Carousell selling Mind Maps too. Are the Mind Maps the same? Is there a discount if I buy from Carousell instead?


Yes, that's us too! We started out selling the RES Mind Maps on Carousell in May 2018. You can visit our Carousell page here to check out the original listings and five-star reviews. The Mind Maps are exactly the same. As much as we want to meet your request, we must be fair to our past customers. Since we started selling the Mind Maps in May 2018, we've never offered a discount to any of my customers. We seek your understanding on this matter. The prices on this website and Carousell are the same.




What're you actually selling? Notes, tuition or question banks?


We specialise in what we do best - to present the RES syllabus as Mind Maps. We only sell the Mind Maps.

At the payment stage, why do I need to provide my billing address?
