Very Helpful

The practice tests were just like the real Test and I felt like it prepared me well to take the test. Probably wouldn’t have done as well as I did without it.








A thankful cousin

I just bought the CHSPE Review for my cousin’s child. My cousin told me it was an excellent resource and she was so grateful that I bought it for him. I was told it has very easy to follow strategies! My cousin is going to buy it for some of her friends’ kids as well.
