On a beautiful late spring afternoon, this past year, a young woman received the devastating news. She had just gotten back her result on the CTEL test. It was not what she had hoped for. In fact, it was not even close to the expectations she had considering her past experience and educational background.
She had failed.
Then she remembered her friends and felt even worse. She did not look forward to having to tell them the embarrassing news, especially after she had boasted that it was no big deal. She had been procrastinating about taking the exam because she hated standardized tests, and this only confirmed her hatred.
"What will I do now?" she thought with dismay, slowly realizing the harsh reality of her predicament and its upsetting implications on her future.
How to Solve the Problem
Unfortunately, this hypothetical situation occurs all the time. Someone thought they were going to breeze through the examination, told all their friends, made plans for their future, and then got an embarrassing reality check from the CTEL test.
The California Teacher of English Learners (CTEL) is quite simply an objective assessment of a test taker's requisite foundation of knowledge and skills.
CTEL test scores are used by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) and Pearson Education, Inc. as a uniform standard of qualification. While it may not be fair, all of a person's plans for the future may be dependent upon needing a certain CTEL test score.
That is the whole purpose of the CTEL Exam Secrets study guide: to give test takers the keys to understand how to succeed on the CTEL test.

"I just had to thank you guys for the test prep! I bought the guide as a last minute prep, I mean maybe 5 hours before the test. Like I said, I had ZERO preparation! I was nervous about the test let alone receiving the score I needed. I read the guide through only once before test time and needless to say, the only way I passed was thanks to your refresher!!"
"Just dropping you a note to let you know that I am completely satisfied with the product. I had already taken the test once and landed in the 75 percentile of those taking it with me. I took the test a second time and used some of your tips and raised my score to the 97 percentile. Thanks for my much improved score."
"I heard about your website from a friend. I am enrolled in a review course, and in hindsight, I wish I wouldn't have taken my review course and instead spent a fraction of the money on your program. Thank you!"
