REA’s THEA (Texas Higher Education Assessment) Test Prep with TestWare CD

Gets You a High Score!

Updated 9th Edition!

This updated ninth edition of our popular test prep was designed to help college-bound students in Texas master the information on the Texas Higher Education Assessment (THEA).

This test prep is perfect for:
* Students entering Texas public colleges, universities, and technical institutes (including students transferring from out-of-state schools or from private institutions within the state of Texas)
* Students seeking admission to public and private teacher-education programs
* Students seeking admission to upper-level programs that require the THEA for admission

Our comprehensive review chapters cover all math, reading, and writing skills tested on the exam. Drills in each chapter let you practice what you’ve learned and target areas in need of improvement.

Two full-length, multiple-choice practice tests in the book simulate the actual THEA. Each practice test is balanced to include every type of question, subject area, and skill tested on the exam. Our practice tests replicate the THEA’s question format, allowing you to assess your skills and gauge your test-readiness.

The book’s two exams are included on CD in a timed format with instant scoring, diagnostic feedback, and on-screen detailed explanations of answers. Our TestWare CD offers the most powerful scoring and diagnostic tools available today. Automatic scoring and instant reports help you zero in on the topics and types of questions that give you trouble now, so you’ll succeed when it counts!

Every practice exam comes with detailed feedback on every question. We don’t just say which answers are right—we explain why the other answer choices are wrong—so you’ll be prepared on test day. Our detailed explanations of answers let you identify your strengths and weaknesses while building your skills. This complete test prep package comes with a customized study schedule and REA’s test-taking strategies and tips.

This test prep is a must-have for college-bound students in Texas!
