This brand-new manual prepares prospective teachers in the California public school system to pass all three sections of the required statewide test: Reading, Math, and Writing.
Following a general introduction and overview of the CBEST, the authors present diagnostic tests in reading and math, both with answers and analysis. Each diagnostic is followed by a full-length test that is much like the Reading and Math tests on the actual CBEST. Both tests come with answer sheets and answer keys.

The book's following chapter covers the Writing Test, and presents example essays with an analysis pointing out the strengths and weaknesses of each. The book concludes with additional brief practice tests and answer keys.
