Prepare Your Child
Home taught children that are not prepared for their yearly standardized tests are at a distinct disadvantage to government and privately taught children. If you reside in a state that requires standardized tests you should know that a vast majority of certified teachers 'teach for the test.' In other words, knowing the types of questions that will appear on the standardized tests, they will spend the weeks preceding the tests covering the necessary information. If you do not do likewise, your children stand a chance of performing poorly in comparison.

Essential Groundwork
For those of us in a state where some form of testing is required, but never scrutinized, preparing is not as critical. But for those of you in states where the test results are not only analyzed but are used as a basis for whether you may continue to home educate, why not make sure your children are 'playing on a level playing field?' Spectrum Test Prep offers students the essential groundwork needed to prepare for standardized tests.

Newest Version
This newest version of Spectrum Test Prep series offers children a comprehensive and sequential way to practice the content areas offered on the following standardized tests: the California Achievement TestsŪ (CAT/5), the Comprehensive Tests of Basic Skills (CTBS/4), the Iowa Tests of Basic SkillsŪ (ITBS, Form K), the Metropolitan Achievement Test (MAT/7), and the Stanford Achievement Test (SAT/9). The up-to-date content reflects national standards and includes practice tests in the following subject areas: reading, language arts and math.

Clear Instructions and an Answer Key
Each book offers examples, with directions and sample test items, tips about test-taking strategies, a practice test section with actual test questions in reading, language arts and math, and a progress chart to note and record their own progress. Clear instructions and an answer key are included. Help your children to face the tests with the same confidence that their peers will have.

Special Note:
Although presently there are test preparation books that also cover science and history, there are a couple of reasons we have elected not to carry them at this time. Our main concern is that their format is more entertaining and not as nuts and bolts, nor as comprehensive about covering the main topics of reading, language arts and math as we have found in Spectrum Test Prep. Moreover, because in many states history and science are option subjects tested at the parent's discretion, it seemed more prudent to offer the best tool for preparing your child for what is essential: reading, language arts and math.
