I just found out I passed the CBEST on my first try and I don't think I would have without the CBEST TestPrep book! It was easily the best study guide I used, and the sample questions prepared me for the questions on my test.

I bought this ebook, great tool. I graduated with my BA in Business over 10 years ago and now looking to change my career. I passed the math and reading section on the first try. I didn't take the reading yet. Sample tests were very helpful. Lots of great study tips.
