Review English | Resources for English Major Test Takers

Passing the board exam for teachers or the Licensure Exam for Teachers (LET) demands a lot of time and mental effort. Sometimes, the money is also needed to review on review centers. However, for those who have decided to study on their own, finding review guides online may be hard. Well, they can but the results of online research may be unorganized. Not to mention that such activity requires patience, determination, and resourcefulness.

Anyway, if you were like me whose focus is English for LET [well, it’s really Mass Communications with 18 units of Educ.] or majored in English in College, you may want to take a look at these online resources I gathered. It is your own responsibility and judgement on how to make use of these resources I found.
