Our Study Guide for the Certified Diabetes Educator Exam Is Unlike Any Other

If you'd like to get the Certified Diabetes Educator Exam score you deserve, to quit worrying about whether your score on the Certified Diabetes Educator Exam is "good enough," and to beat the test taking game so you can become a Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE), then this might be the most important message you read this year.

Our comprehensive study guide for the CDE Test is written by our Certified Diabetes Educator Exam experts, who painstakingly researched the topics and the concepts that you need to know to do your best on the Certified Diabetes Educator Exam. Our original research into the Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE) Certification Examination, offered by the National Certification Board for Diabetes Educators (NCBDE), reveals the specific content areas and the essential skills that are critical for you to know on the Certified Diabetes Educator Exam. We've taken the information and developed a study guide that is guaranteed to help you be successful on the Certified Diabetes Educator Exam.

Now, we know you may be skeptical, so let us give you three good reasons we can back up what we claim:

The Three Reasons To Believe What We Say

The First Reason:

Our company's name is Mometrix Test Preparation, and we have a team of standardized test researchers who have worked on developing our study guide for the Certified Diabetes Educator Exam. The standards for who gets to work on the team are very strict- we demand the best for our customers, and only those who met our exacting standards made the cut. The dedicated research staff have years of combined experience in mastering the content and skills necessary to succeed on the toughest exams.

The Second Reason:

Some academic studies have revealed that test takers do not really benefit from the traditional test preparation process. But we knew there had to be a solution- if test takers were not doing well on the Certified Diabetes Educator Exam despite high intelligence, there had to be a set of secret keys to the test that would open the door of success for these test takers.

We believe we have succeeded in finding the secret keys of the exam. What we found was surprising, and in some cases ridiculously simple once explained to the average test taker.

We put the findings together in a thorough, concise study guide that we believe allows any test taker, at any skill level, to improve his or her results dramatically with a minimum of effort.

The Third Reason:

We created the product in part because we were frustrated by the options available to test takers who really wanted to do well on the Certified Diabetes Educator Exam.

A common approach is to TEACH the material, instead of TEACHING THE TEST. That's not necessarily good enough for the Certified Diabetes Educator Exam- you have to know how to apply the knowledge. Most test takers already have a general knowledge of the material that will be covered on the exam.

One reason some test takers do well on the day of the test is that they have made the critical connection between the material they learned and how to use the material to succeed on the Certified Diabetes Educator Exam.

Our guide addresses the difference between merely knowing the material and knowing how to use the material to perform on test day.

You're going to save time, money, and aggravation. You'll learn to avoid the mistakes and the bad strategies that you've been vulnerable to. --Just for starters, here are some ways our product can help your score on the Certified Diabetes Educator...

The Exclusive Test Taking Techniques

  • Keys to questions that "give away" the wrong (or right) answers- You get credit for some of the questions without really even knowing anything about them
  • Get quick, customized help for the questions you have- just send us a quick email and we'll get back to you promptly with the answer.
  • Details the EXACT STUDY PLAN for the Certified Diabetes Educator that we believe gives the most results in the least time- No matter if you're studying for a week or a month, you won't waste the precious study time you have on useless activities
  • Our researchers are more than just academic theoreticians who understand the technical nature of standardized tests, but are also experts on test taking itself- they reveal the exact skills and the information you'll need to perform under pressure during the test.
  • A systematic analysis and the best breakdown into "plain language" of how to deconstruct and master the toughest problems- You turn the problems that most of the test takers will stumble over to your advantage
  • 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
  • Includes instructions detailing the best way for you to get started with your preparation efforts so you can begin the path of improving your scores immediately
  • The most efficient and accurate method for picking the right answer every time- You won't be scratching your head trying to read the mind of the test question writer, but will instead know exactly what to look for to pick the best answer
  • Courteous, unlimited customer service is 100% free- if you need the product emailed to a different address, lose the product, or have any other difficulty- the help you need is just a short email away and our representatives are active 7 days a week helping customers
  • The research of our team of test experts is 100% independent and original
  • Our exclusive "calibration strategy" to help you never go too fast OR too slow when answering even the toughest questions
  • The 5-step process we've developed, what we call the "phased" approach, concerning the use of the various study aids and practice tests
  • How the problem of procrastination can kill your chance of success, and the most important thing you can do about it
  • How to know when you've studied as much as you need to for the exam- and the reason why we think some people should spend LESS time studying for the test
  • The Top 20 things you should take care of within 24 hours of taking the test- use the list we provide as a checklist to make sure you've taken care of the "little things" in addition to studying hard
  • How to predict the right answer before you see the answer choices- and how to prevent the wrong answers from "polluting" your mind and tempting you into a trap designed by the test writers
  • 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
  • How some of the random bits of information in a question often "give away" the right answer choice
  • How to "milk the question" for clues to the right answer even if you have no idea what the question is asking about
  • How to avoid panicking when you don't know the answer to a question- we offer a systematic method that will serve as the "lifeline" you need to minimize the time wasted on the test questions that leave you stumped --
  • 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

  • How to use our brainstorming method to get "inside the question" and reveal the hard-to-find clues and some of the subtle things you didn't realize you knew
  • Do you know what a "hedge phrase" is? Learn why looking for the key "weasel words" in the question can help identify the correct answer
  • Why "new information" in the answer choices almost always means that the answer choice is wrong- and the way to avoid this trick planted by the clever test writers
  • Learn to avoid this time-draining mistake on the test - why the technical terms you don't know can be a major stumbling block and waste precious time, and the way that you can work around them
  • The secret to using the contextual clues in the questions and the answer choices to make important distinctions between the right and the wrong answer choices
  • The two situations where you should NOT check your answers thoroughly
  • How to avoid careless mistakes by using the quick "double check" system. It will more than pay for itself relative to the time it will take you
  • Test writers will often quote directly from the question in an answer- learn whether this is something you should trust or avoid
  • Why "extreme statements" in the answer choices are dead giveaways for wrong answers- find out how to detect the subtle differences between reasonable answers and the answers that are almost always wrong
  • Learn how to group your answer choices into "families" that often narrows down the pool of correct answers- this is a quick way to immediately eliminate one or two of the answer choices and increase your odds of getting the question right

Now, you're probably wondering how and why we can do all the things we claim.

Let us explain.

Before we go any further, let us clarify what Certified Diabetes Educator Exam Secrets is not. It is not a stale rehash of all of the things you have already learned in the past.

Certified Diabetes Educator Exam Secrets is our exclusive collection of the tips and the information that we have specially selected to give you the best results on the Certified Diabetes Educator Exam for the least time spent studying. It's written in everyday language and is easy to use.

We cover the 5 essential skills necessary to do well on the Certified Diabetes Educator, plus comprehensive reviews covering all of the essential test sections individually.

Don't take our word for it. Listen to what our customers say about other Mometrix test preparation products.

I purchased the Secrets file, and I just wanted to let you know that I passed my test. I just want to thank you again, and hope you have continued success in your ventures. Sincerely, Paul L.

My name is Chris. I used the Secrets study guide for five days. The study guide made the test so easy to understand. Like you said this program is worth 100's of dollars. To me 1,000's!! THANKS, Chris G.

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!! Brian

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! Zac L.

You get at least 10 times your money's worth! --When you consider what's at stake with the exam, we believe the value of our study guide gives you at least ten times your money's worth.

The material is an excellent review. I really like the way the book is laid out. You start into some good reading immediately at the beginning of the book. I have not taken my exam yet, but I feel that I will do well when it is time to take it.

Format: Paperback
"I liked this study guide a lot even though it's not the biggest or the most expensive one you can buy. It is basically divided into two sections. The first section is all about tips and tricks a person can use to improve their score on any standardized test, not just the CDE. This part was very good, giving many suggestions the average person is not aware of. Frankly, though, I have to say that I myself was aware of most of them, but that's only because I bought another study guide from this same company (on a different test) a couple of years ago. But for anyone who doesn't already know dozens of standardized test secret strategies, this section might be the most important.

The other section gets into the meat of the material that will appear on the Certified Diabetes Educator exam, including many of the all-important practice questions. Here are a few of the topics that the guide covers: diabetic foot problems, diabetic retinopathy, principles and tools of communication, the five parts of the educational process, barriers to learning, patient assessment, chronic complications, Knowels' four principles, testing criteria, insulin storage and administration, behavioral strategies, etc. This section was very in depth, and the practice questions make all the difference. Very good study guide!

Before you start learning new things, you would need to ask yourself some important questions:
What do you know about diabetes, what would you like to know about? If you are about to face the exam, they will ask you things about this subject and you don't want to caught by surprise. Know how you feel about diabetes. It is important to know about this, and how knowing about it can really help you. The guide will cover points such as adult diabetes, and the difference from the one that a child might have. You will also teach yourself about diabetes, it was made so that people that suffer from it, can know as much about it as a specialist, and they can have a very good part in the decision making when it comes to dealing with it, and taking care of it on their own. This includes, food and nutrition, physical activity and exercise, how to medicate it, complications, how to prevent it and treat it.

Research tells us that disease severity can be the cause of behavior change. They believe that family and society should support the person that suffers from diabetes. Having diabetes influences the parents and the people around the ones that are affected by it. It should inspire people to care more about themselves when they are being supported by the people around them. Diabetes affects you in your physical life and there is a common fear with it. Learn about the effect that alcohol has over diabetes and also what tobacco does to it. Read about the different kinds of medications. As you cover all these points you will learn more and more about it. Soon you will be able to give suggestions to people that don't know anything about this topic. You will become a great asset for those that suffer from this disease and don't know how to deal with it.

So, I strongly recommend that you take a look at this guide. You won't regret it.
