CliffsTestPrep CBEST, 6th Edition, can help you prepare for the California Basic Education Skills Test, a requirement for obtaining teaching credentials in California and Oregon.

  • A list of last-minute test-taking tips.

This book will help you understand the types of questions that will test your knowledge in three general subjects: reading, mathematics, and writing. You can get ready to show what you know in areas such as

  • Basic math and algebra, including whole numbers, fractions, decimals, percents, and simple equations
  • Practical applications of arithmetic operations, such as invoices, unit cost, and totals.
  • Standard units in the U.S. measurement system
  • Reading comprehension with emphasis on interpreting and analyzing passages
  • Essay writing in a descriptive/narrative form that draws from personal experience
  • Original writing in an analytical/expository essay that calls for explaining an issue, problem, or quotation and relating a well-supported personal opinion on the subject

    PASSED WITH FLYING COLORS

    I do not live in CA, yet, and this was my only guide to taking the exam. The week before the exam I began to focus on it using this book. The literature is to the point and instructional. The sample questions were, in my opinion, more difficult than what was actually on the CBEST; particularly on the reading section.
