We decided to place the testimonials right where you can find them not only as a thank you to those who have put in their hard work, but also for those of you who have yet to take the CBEST and may need some inspiration and/or confirmation. All of the testimonials you see below are from individuals who used our CBEST preparation program.
“As an English major transitioning into the role of educator, one of the most daunting aspects of my credentialing experience was the CBEST math section. Thankfully, my undergraduate university recommended and provided access to the Longsdale Publishing online CBEST study guide. To my great relief, the study guide provided a thorough enough review of math problems and procedures that I hadn't seen since senior year high school. I was able to put together the necessary information to study, and the numerous practice test prepared me more than I imagined. Thanks to Longsdale Publishing, I received a score of 60 on the CBEST math section, a score I couldn't have imagined a few months ago on my weakest subject.”
“The online program was very helpful. I was able to pass the reading and math portions of the CBEST thanks to all the information you provided. In addition, the practice tests helped me work on my timing and pace, and get familiarized with the style of the testing system, so when that day arrived I was ready and prepared!”
“Thanks again for your help.”
“Longsdale Publishing has provided excellent insight into the CBEST test. The program is split into the three sections: reading, math, and writing. There are helpful study guides as well as practice tests in which the answers are explained. You can even send in your writing to get it assessed by someone! I am confident Longsdale Publishing has helped me succeed in my CBEST studying.”
“I used your website for the practice tests and for tips. I enjoyed using this service through the pre-credential program for CSU Channel Islands. I appreciate this help and all the study materials. This program is great overall. I appreciate it. Thank you so much for reading my essay.”
“Longsdale's customer service was superior. I received speedy, thoughtful, and courteous replies to all my inquiries. Very helpful, and many thanks!”
“I am taking the test next week and found the Longsdale program to be terrific.”
“Yesterday, I took the CBEST test for the first time and just to let you know, your site definitely captures the spirit of the actual test. I did not run across your site until the week before, but you helped me greatly I feel.”
“This is a great website! I passed the CBEST by taking this course. Many of the math problems are similar to the test. The bottom line is....If you can do the problems on this study guide then you will pass the Cbest!!”
“Longsdale Publications is a good site for practice and tutorial information. The site was a integral piece in the CBEST test taking process.”
