By on May 31, 2011 in Education | 109 comments

My article written less than two years ago on how to pass the licensure exam for teachers received a lot of comments especially on where to find reviewers online. Since I’m not aware of any site dedicated to LET reviewers,  I listed below foreign educational websites which can stand as your reviewers if you want to study on your own. You will find lessons, quizzes, practice tests, and videos in the list. This list may actually be helpful as well to other graduates taking other exams from PRC since they may also have to answer General Ed questions.

After reviewing for the Licensure Exam for Teachers and passing it, I decided to share my ten LET passing tips here on my blog. These tips are essentially helpful if you decide not to enroll in a review center and just review on your own to get a license for teaching. # 1 Know your weak and strong subjects/classes. Allot a few hours each day or each week to review the lessons for classes you did well when you were still in college. Enjoy this review time so you can easily remember what you are re-learning. Allot more time, however, on classes you were weak in. Well, at least if you are weak in mathematics for example, make sure you don’t miss reviewing the concepts that will be tested in the General Math part of the licensure exam. It will be easy to find out your areas of weakness. Check the grades in your transcript or assess yourself which among the classes you took you...
