How to Pass the Illinois Certification Testing System (ICTS) Test, using our easy step-by-step ICTS study guide, without weeks and months of endless studying...
The state of Illinois now requires candidates for teacher licensure to pass the appropriate ILTS exams. We have developed a collection of ILTS Test study guides.
Dear Future Illinois Teacher,
One gorgeous day last spring, a young lady got the dreaded news: the official score from her ICTS 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 ICTS 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 ICTS 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 ICTS 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 ICTS.
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 ICTS score brought all their hopes and dreams to a screeching halt.
You see, there's a widespread myth that the ICTS is all about measuring academic abilities. It's not; that's why so many people do poorly on the ICTS 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 ICTS 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 ICTS.
But it doesn't have to happen to you if you rely on our ICTS Test Secrets Study Guide. That's the reason we created ICTS Test Secrets: so that no qualified teacher has their dreams crushed due to a low ICTS score.
Our Guide to Passing the ICTS Is Like No Other
If you want to master the art of test taking, so that you can stop agonizing about getting an ICTS 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.
ICTS Test Secrets is a comprehensive guide to acing the ICTS exam, written by our test experts on the Illinois Certification Testing System. They've done in depth research into the concepts and subjects you'll encounter on the exam. Our painstaking research has uncovered the precise subject matter and skills that are essential if you're going to pass this rigorous exam. We've used the results of this intensive research to create a study guide that's guaranteed to help you pass the ICTS.
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.

First, let us make it crystal clear what ICTS 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, ICTS Test Secrets is a volume of techniques and knowledge that we've compiled specifically to help you pass the ICTS with as little study time as possible. It's written in plain English and is very user friendly.
We teach you the essential skills you'll need for success on the ICTS exam, and we include a thorough review of the specific ICTS test you'll be taking.

"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!!"
"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."
"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!"
