Synopsis

If It's on the CBEST, It's in This Book
We don't try to teach you everything there is to know about mathematics, reading, and writing –only the techniques you'll need to score higher on the CBEST. There's a big difference. In Cracking the CBEST, we'll teach you how to think like the test writers and

·Eliminate answer choices that look right but are planted to fool you
·Prepare for the new challenges of the revised CBEST
·Raise your score by mastering the critical analysis and evaluation area of the reading section
·Ace the math section by knowing what to expect

This book includes 2 full-length practice CBEST exams. All of our practice questions are just like the ones you’ll see on the actual CBEST, and we fully explain every solution.
