How to Pass the National Evaluation Series Certification Test, using our easy step-by-step NES Exam study guide, without weeks and months of endless studying...

Dear Friend,

On a beautiful late spring afternoon, this past year, a young woman received some devastating news. She had just gotten back her NES exam result. It was not what she had hoped for. In fact, it was not even close to her expectations despite her past experience and educational background.

She had failed.

Then she remembered her friends and felt even worse. She did not look forward to having to tell them her embarrassing news, especially after she had boasted that it was no big deal. She had been procrastinating about taking the exam because she hated standardized tests, and this only confirmed her hatred.

"What will I do now?" 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 the examination, told all their friends, made plans for their future, and then got an embarrassing reality check from the NES exam.

The National Evaluation Series Certification Test is quite simply an objective assessment of a test taker's requisite foundation of knowledge and skills.

NES exam scores are used by the National Evaluation Systems (NES) as a uniform standard of qualification. While it may not be fair, all of a person's plans for the future may be dependent upon needing a certain NES exam score.

That is the whole purpose of our NES Certification Test Secrets study guide: to give test takers the keys to understand how to succeed on the NES exam.

Our Study Guide for the NES Exam Is Unlike Any Other

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

Our comprehensive NES exam study guide is written by our NES exam experts, who painstakingly researched every topic and concept you need to know to pass your NES exam. Our original research into the National Evaluation Series Certification Test, offered by the National Evaluation Systems (NES), reveals specific content areas and skills that are critical for you to know on the NES exam. We've taken that information and developed a study guide that is guaranteed to help you be successful on the NES exam.

Now, we know you may be skeptical, so let us give you three good reasons we can back up what we claim:

Three Reasons You Can Rely On NES Certification Test Secrets

#1) Our name is Mometrix Test Preparation, and we have an entire team of researchers who do nothing but study and "reverse engineer" standardized tests like the NES. We maintain very strict hiring standards for this team of researchers, and very few applicants for the rare open position come close to qualifying, as we set a very high bar for quality when it comes to our study guides and other materials. You can rely on their combined decades of experience in cracking the code for difficult standardized tests such as the NES to get that all important passing score.

#2) Most people simply aren't very good at preparing for tests; in fact, many badly overestimate how prepared they are for a major exam, even highly intelligent people. This has been proven in several academic studies, but it's not the fault of the students. It's the result of relying on ineffective and outdated study methods. But our experts here at Mometrix Media decided there had to be much better ways of preparing for exams. We just had to discover them.

We're convinced that we've done just that; we've found the secrets to beating these exams. We were surprised at what we found; some of the keys to getting a high score were unbelievably simple to implement once test takers found out about them.

We've put all the results of our research together in a compact, yet thorough, study guide that will allow anyone, no matter their present skill level, to see dramatically improved results with very little effort.

#3) Part of our motivation in creating NES Certification Test Secrets was our frustration at the lack of quality test prep tools for the NES. Future teachers looking for help with the NES really had no good options. Most of what was available made the same fundamental error: it tried to teach the subject matter, instead of focusing on teaching the test. This doesn't work, because most of the people who will take the NES already have a pretty good grasp of what they need to know about teaching; it's the nature of the test that trips them up.

Test takers who do well on the NES do so because they understand the link between their knowledge of their subject, and how to use that knowledge in the context of the NES format.

That's what makes NES Certification Test Secrets so powerful. We show you how to take the material you already know, and successfully apply it to the actual NES test format.

You'll save money, time, and headaches. You'll know how to avoid the weak test prep strategies and common mistakes that others are making, and discover what you need to know to achieve success on the NES. Here are just a few of the ways NES Certification Test Secrets can help you...

Now, those are some big promises. Can we really deliver on them?

Yes we can.

Let us explain.

First, let us make it crystal clear what NES Certification Test Secrets isn't. It is NOT a warmed over collection of common knowledge study tips and things you're already aware of.

On the contrary, NES Certification Test Secrets is a volume of techniques and knowledge that we've compiled specifically to help you pass the NES with as little study time as possible. It's written in plain English and is very user friendly.

We teach you the five essential skills you'll need for success on the NES exam, and we include a thorough review of the specific NES test you'll be taking.

Don't take our word for it.
Listen to what our customers say about other Mometrix test preparation products.

I purchased the Secrets file, and I just wanted to let you know that I got a 99% on my test. I just want to thank you again, and hope you have continued success in your ventures. Sincerely, Paul L.

My name is Chris. I used the Secrets study guide for five days. The study guide made the test so easy to understand. Like you said this program is worth 100's of dollars. To me 1,000's!! THANKS, Chris G.

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!! Brian

Just dropping you a note to let you know that I am completely satisfied with the product. I had already taken the test once and landed in the 75 percentile of those taking it with me. I took the test a second time and used some of your tips and raised my score to the 97 percentile. Thanks for my much improved score. Denise W.

I heard about your website from a friend. I am enrolled in a review course, and in hindsight, I wish I wouldn't have taken my review course and instead spent a fraction of the money on your program. Thank you! Zac L.

Warning: Six Criteria You Must Always Look For

There's a lot of useless, unhelpful and just plain wrong information out there about studying for the NES and other standardized tests. Here are six factors you must always look for in an NES study guide:

One: The people who wrote it must be professionals who have exhaustively studied the concepts and topics found on the NES if you're going to be successful.

Two: Even though it was authored by professionals, it must be written in plain, easily understandable language that all test takers can relate to.

Three: It should be fluff free; direct and to the point, so you don't waste time or get distracted.

Four: It should focus primarily on the NES exam itself, and only secondarily on the subject matter. As we pointed out earlier, if knowing the material was all that mattered, we wouldn't see so many people with high grades from excellent education programs failing the NES. Simply knowing the material doesn't mean a person will be able to succeed on the NES exam, as these are two different skills. A good study guide should bridge the gap between them.

Five: It must be easy and enjoyable to use, so the reader is actually motivated to study for the NES

Six: It must come with a money back guarantee. Anyone who doesn't pass the NES should get their money back. Period.

You'll receive more than 10 times your money's worth!

When you add up the costs of failing the NES - retesting fees, a minimum of a few months' salary missed out on, etc., and then compare the total to the small price of NES Certification Test Secrets, you'll see you're easily getting more than 10 times your money's worth in value.

Here's what you're about to receive:
