It helped me pass on the first time. It gave me the confidence I needed. I highly recommend it.
Having taken my last social studies class over 12 years ago I was very worried about the content exam which was required to teach. After speaking to a 240 Tutoring representative I decided to give it a try. Upon studying the first section of the guide I was hooked! It is organized extremely well and flows like a well written book! I will definitely use 240 Tutoring again to become certified in many more areas!
240Tutoring is AWESOME!
3rd time is the charm!!!
I bought the study guide four days before my exam. Did every problem on the study guide and scored a 277!
I wanted to inform you that with you tutoring program, I passed my test on the second try 2 weeks ago. I have been raving to all of my colleagues who have remaining tests to take on how your services assisted me so much. I have to say that I showed them what your services provided and they loved it. Again this has been a great help. As long as I have the opportunity to keep telling people about your services, I will keep telling them to log onto 240tutoring. I failed the test the first time in March but passed it in April just studying the material from your tutoring material. Thank you again!
I am so grateful for 240Tutoring. It was such a wonderful resource to help me prepare for my teacher certification exams. I love the practice tests. They really helped me to assess the areas that I needed to focus on more when it came to studying. I highly recommend 240Tutoring to all of my peers and any student studying of their teacher certification exams!
Thanks to 240Tutoring I'm a teacher now. If it wasn't for the questions that were similar to the real exam questions, I would have not passed. I was committed to passing and 240Tutoring helped me do that. 240tutoring is a great study guide and I recommend teachers and future teachers to sign up.

The NES, National Evaluation Series, is a series of tests that are required for prospective teachers to take in order to display proficiency in both pedagogical and content-area knowledge. A passing score on a variety of NES Exams is required in order to obtain an initial teacher license in many different US states. Established teachers, who already hold a teacher license, but are seeking to add additional content-areas to their license, may also take the required NES test in order to display proficiency. Other established teachers who are seeking to become licensed in a state different from, or in addition to, their current state of licensure may do so by passing the appropriate NES exam. Please visit the NES website for up-to-date information.
Each US State has unique testing requirements in order to display proficiency. Please visit the NES website and select your desired state in order to determine which specific test you need to take.
When Can/Should a Person Take the NES?
Each US State has a unique timeline. Please visit the NES website and select your desired state in order to determine when your state recommends you should take the exam in order to obtain a new license, add a concentration to your current license, or obtain a license in a different state.
NES Test Dates
Most of the NES Exams are available year round, Monday-Saturday (excluding some holidays). Tests are available at many different locations throughout the U.S and in limited locations across the globe. To make an appointment for a test, please visit the NES website to view an available test date and location that is convenient for you.
Applicants are required to create an account in order to register for any NES Exams. You can create an account by providing your email, desired password, and answers to a variety of security questions at the NES Test Registration page. It is crucial that the information you provide at the time of registration matches your government-issued I.D. Early Registration is strongly encouraged in order to schedule a desired seat and meet the required deadline for any NES exam.
The Essential Academic Skills Subtests can be taken in any combination for the following prices (i.e. when taking the Reading and Writing test together, the cost is $75).

Beginning to Prepare
After you have determined which exam you need to take, have registered and paid the exam fee, it is time to begin preparing for the NES. The most effective way to prepare for the NES Exam series is to develop a study plan. Your study plan should include understanding the standards, the structure of the NES, what study materials are available, practice or diagnostic assessments, studying strategies, how to write a CRQ (if applicable), and developing a study schedule as discussed below.
Understanding The Standards
The NES was designed to align with nationwide learning standards and content standards for teachers. The Professional and Subject Knowledge exams will measure proficiency in their respective fields based on the standards for that field. You can find information about these standards on your state’s Department of Education website.
Structure of the NES
Each NES exam is a computer-based assessment that consists of a unique format and time allotment. Please visit NES website and select your desired test for more information.
Don’t Forget to Study Testing Strategies
How to Write a CRQ
CRQ’s or Constructed Response Questions are an important part of the NES. If your exam includes CRQ’s, you will need to know how to write one effectively. Here are some helpful tips to help you prepare for the CRQ portion of your exam.
After creating your study plan, you need to begin studying! Using 240Tutoring’s preparation guides, you can begin learning more about the content and types of questions on each exam and completing practice questions using The 240Tutoring Testing Approach.
By identifying patterns in your performance, you can adapt your study plan to hone in on the areas in which you need to improve most.
For incorrect answers, be sure to read the answer explanation. You will see why each answer choice is correct or incorrect, and may notice details about the questions and answer choices that you did not notice in your first attempt. Reading explanations of incorrect answers ensures that you learn from your mistakes as you progress.
You should plan to be at the testing center at least 30 minutes prior to your scheduled test appointment. You should dress comfortably and in layers. Wear soft-soled shoes in order to maintain a quiet testing environment for all testers.
Lockers are provided at most testing centers. Please double-check by calling the testing center in advance.
You need to have a government-issued I.D. to verify your identity. When you check-in, your I.D. will be checked, your digital signature recorded, your palm scanned, and your photograph taken.
Each testing center has computers separated by partitions as well as a proctor to prevent cheating. Before beginning the exam, each tester will complete a computer-based tutorial session designed to show you how to navigate through the test successfully.
The national benchmark for a passing score for every NES subtest is 220. Some states like Arizona, New Mexico, and Oregon may require a higher score in order to qualify for a license. Please visit the NES website and select your desired test in order to determine the passing score for that test required by your state.
When Do I Get Scores?
A benefit of the NES structure of computer-based testing is that you receive an unofficial score report at the testing center upon completion of your test.
An official score report will be emailed to the email address you provided upon registration as soon as it is available, so it is important to keep your registration information up to date. You can also access a PDF version of your score report 45 days after the test date by logging in and following the prompts. You can also find your results, when they become available, here.
Understanding Your Score Report
Your Score Report will include the date of the exam, your total test score out of 300, and a pass or fail status. In order to help testers understand their strengths and weaknesses in testing areas, subarea scores are provided. You do not need to pass every subarea in order to pass the exam. Please visit the NES website in order to read a detailed NES Score Report Explanation and a NES State-Specific Score Report Explanation.
NES Exams are accepted in a wide variety of states. In order to get accurate and up-to-date information about individual state requirements, please visit your state’s Department of Education website, or follow the links on the NES website.
