How to Pass the ILTS Social Science: History (246), and Political Science (247) tests, using our easy step-by-step ILTS Social Science study guide, without weeks and months of endless studying...

If you are interested in a different ILTS test, we've developed study guides for most of the ILTS Exam series.

Dear Future Illinois Teacher,

One gorgeous day last spring, a young lady got the dreaded news: the official score from her ILTS Social Science exam. It was nowhere near as high as she had hoped it would be. Actually, it was far worse than that; despite her years of study and her great college grades, she had failed the ILTS Social Science test.

This was a crushing blow. All her hopes and dreams of making a difference in children's lives as a teacher were swirling down the drain. All because of a low score on the ILTS Social Science test...

Thinking about her friends made it even worse. They had all gotten their scores, and every one of them had passed. She despised standardized tests, so she had put off taking it as long as possible. Now she hated these tests even worse.

"Why should I even have to take the ILTS Social Science test to get a teaching license?" she exclaimed, as she threw her failure notice in the trash can.

She had no idea how she was going to tell her friends what happened. Then she began to despair at just how terrible her situation was, as it began to sink in that she would never have a teaching career if she couldn't pass the ILTS Social Science test.

How to Solve the Problem

For far too many people, the situation above isn't a story about someone else. It's the reality that they're living through right now. They did well in college, thought they had it made, thought they were on the fast track to a lifelong career in teaching... until their low ILTS Social Science test score brought all their hopes and dreams to a screeching halt.

You see, there's a widespread myth that the ILTS Social Science test is all about measuring academic abilities. It's not; that's why so many people do poorly on the ILTS Social Science test even though they made excellent grades in college.

If the exam was only about how much a person had learned in college, then everyone who did well in college would easily pass the test. Instead of being all about knowledge and skills, the ILTS Social Science test is actually just as much about measuring how good someone is at passing standardized tests. This certainly doesn't seem fair, but fair or not, it's how things are. Some people who would have made great teachers may never get the chance because they flunked the ILTS Social Science test.

But it doesn't have to happen to you if you rely on our ILTS Social Science Secrets Study Guide. That's the reason we created ILTS Social Science Secrets: so that no qualified teacher has their dreams crushed due to a low ILTS Social Science test score.

Our Guide to Passing the ILTS Social Science Test Is Like No Other

If you want to master the art of test taking, so that you can stop agonizing about getting an ILTS Social Science test score that's just barely good enough to pass, and be confident of getting the high score you're capable of, then this may well be the most important letter you will ever read.

Our comprehensive study guide for the ILTS Social Science: History (246), and Political Science (247) tests are written by our test experts, who painstakingly researched the topics and the concepts that you need to know to do your best on the ILTS Social Science test. Our original research into the Illinois Licensure Testing System (ILTS) Science test, offered by the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) and Pearson Education, Inc., reveals the specific content areas and the essential skills that are critical for you to know on the ILTS Social Science test. We've taken the information and developed a study guide that is guaranteed to help you be successful on the ILTS Social Science test.

The Exclusive Test Taking Techniques

  • Learn why, when, and how to guess to your advantage. Many test takers use exactly the wrong strategy, but you can avoid the pitfalls with the help of our standardized test experts.
  • Why answers that sound correct are often the very ones that are wrong and how to tell the difference between the right answer and the many clever-sounding traps set for you by the test writers.
  • Our benchmark method for deciding which of the answer choices you should pick.
  • What to do about the tough questions that you have no clue how to answer. Don't just give up, use the advice we offer to make sure you give yourself the best chance of getting the right answer.
  • Learn how to group your answer choices into families that often narrows down the pool of correct answers. This is a quick way to immediately eliminate one or two of the answer choices and increase your odds of getting the question right.

First, let us make it crystal clear what ILTS Social Science 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, ILTS Social Science Secrets is a volume of techniques and knowledge that we've compiled specifically to help you pass the ILTS Social Science test with as little study time as possible. It's written in plain English and is very user friendly.
