How to Pass the Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure (MTEL), using our easy step-by-step MTEL study guide, without weeks and months of endless studying...

Dear Friend,

On a beautiful late spring afternoon, this past year, a young woman received the devastating news. She had just gotten back her results on the MTEL. It was not what she had hoped for. In fact, it was not even close to the expectations she had and what she thought her excellent grades in college would help her score on the MTEL.

The worst part was that she knew that she could never get certified as a teacher in her desired subject area with a MTEL score that low.

Then she remembered her friends and felt even worse. All of her closest friends had already gotten their MTEL scores back and had all passed. She had been procrastinating about taking the MTEL, because she hated standardized tests, and this only confirmed her hatred.

"Why do you have to take the MTEL to become a teacher?" she angrily wondered.

She didn't look forward to having to tell the embarrassing news to her friends.

"What will I do if I can't pass this test?" 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 college, become a teacher, have a successful career, and then got an embarrassing reality check from their results on the MTEL.

Contrary to popular belief, the MTEL is not a measure of your academic performance, which is why test takers with perfect grades in college don't always pass the MTEL.

The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education uses the MTEL as a standardized measuring stick to determine who has met requirements for certification. While it may not be fair, someone's entire career could be completely jeopardized by their MTEL results.

That is the whole purpose of the MTEL Secrets study guide: to give future teachers the keys to understand how to succeed on the MTEL.

Our MTEL Study Guide Is Unlike Any Other

If you'd like to get the MTEL score you deserve, to quit worrying about whether your score on the MTEL is good enough, and to beat the test taking game, then this might be the most important message you read this year.

Our comprehensive study guide for the MTEL is written by our test experts, who painstakingly researched the topics and the concepts that you need to know to do your best on the MTEL. Our original research into the Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure (MTEL), offered by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and Pearson Education, Inc., reveals the specific content areas and the essential skills that are critical for you to know on the MTEL. We've taken the information and developed a study guide that is guaranteed to help you be successful on the MTEL.

Regardless of which MTEL test you have to take- you have come to the right place. Here you will find everything you need to know in order to be successful and get your certification.

The Exclusive Test Taking Techniques

  • Learn why, when, and how to guess to your advantage. Many test takers use exactly the wrong strategy, but you can avoid the pitfalls with the help of our standardized test experts.
  • Why answers that sound correct are often the very ones that are wrong and how to tell the difference between the right answer and the many clever-sounding traps set for you by the test writers.
  • Our benchmark method for deciding which of the answer choices you should pick.
  • What to do about the tough questions that you have no clue how to answer. Don't just give up, use the advice we offer to make sure you give yourself the best chance of getting the right answer.
  • Learn how to group your answer choices into families that often narrows down the pool of correct answers. This is a quick way to immediately eliminate one or two of the answer choices and increase your odds of getting the question right.

Before we go any further, let us clarify what MTEL Secrets is not. It is not a stale rehash of all of the things you have already learned in the past.

MTEL Secrets is our exclusive collection of the tips and the information that we have specially selected to give you the best results on the MTEL for the least time spent studying. It's written in everyday language and is easy to use.

We cover the essential skills necessary to do well on the MTEL, plus a comprehensive review covering your specific MTEL test.

Don't take our word for it.

"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!!"
