Learn How to Quickly Solve Difficult NYSTCE Test Questions

Here's a little "secret" about the NYSTCE: the NYSTCE is what we in the test preparation field call a "content driven" test.

While some tests are looking to see what you are ABLE to learn, the purpose of the New York State Teacher Certification Examinations (NYSTCE), offered by the New York State Education Department (NYSED) and National Evaluation Systems (NES), is to test your understanding of what you have already learned. The goal of the NYSTCE is to use a standardized testing process to create an objective assessment of a test taker's knowledge and skills.

In other words, it's more about what you know than your ability to solve clever puzzles. This is good news for those who are serious about being prepared, because it boils down to a very simple strategy:

You can succeed on the NYSTCE by learning critical concepts on the test so that you are prepared for as many questions as possible.

Repetition and thorough preparation is a process that rewards those who are serious about being prepared, which means that succeeding on the NYSTCE is within the reach of virtually anyone interested in learning the material.

This is great news! It means that if you've been worried about your upcoming NYSTCE, you can rest easy IF you have a good strategy for knowing what to study and how to effectively use repetition to your advantage.

But it also creates another set of problems.

If you tried to memorize every single possible thing you can for the NYSTCE, the field of possible things to review would be so huge that you could not hope to cover everything in a reasonable time.

That's why we created the NYSTCE Flashcard Study System: we have taken all of the possible topics and reduced them down to the hundreds of concepts you must know and provided an easy-to-use learning method to guarantee success on the NYSTCE.

We wanted this system to be simple, effective, and fast so that you can succeed on your NYSTCE with a minimum amount of time spent preparing for it. --

Here Are Some of the Features of Our NYSTCE Flashcard Study System

  • Study after study has shown that repetition is the most effective form of learning- and nothing beats flashcards when it comes to making repetitive learning fun and fast
  • Flashcards engage more of your senses in the learning process- you "compete" with yourself to see if you know the answers to the questions, and the flipping action gets you actively involved in the learning process
  • Our cards are printed on heavy, bright white 67 lb. cover stock, and are laser printed at 1200 dpi on our industrial printers- these are professional-quality cards that will not smear or wear out with heavy usage
  • We cover the major content areas on the exam
  • Our flashcards include an edge that is micro-perforated, which means that you are much less likely to have a painful papercut on your fingers when moving quickly through the cards
  • Our cards are portable, making it easy for you to grab a few and study while waiting for the bus or the doctor, or anywhere where you have a spare moment that would otherwise be wasted
  • Our NYSTCE cards are written in an easy to understand, straightforward style - we don't include any more technical jargon than what you need to pass the test
  • The cards are a generous size- 3.67 x 4.25 inches- they fit perfectly in your hands and they aren't so small that you have to use a magnifying glass to read tiny type- all questions and answers are in a normal-size print for easy studying
  • Our cards include in-depth explanations- you won't see any "one word" answers on our cards that require you to go get a textbook to understand why your answer was wrong- all of our cards include generous, thorough explanations so you not only get it right or wrong- but you also know why!
  • We use a font created by Microsoft to make reading easier- this will enable you to absorb more information painlessly during late night study sessions
  • Our system enables you to study in small, digestible bits of information- unlike using boring textbooks, flashcards turn learning into a "game" you can play until you've mastered the material
  • It's easy for a friend to help you study- they don't even have to know anything about the NYSTCE- if they can read, then they can quiz you with our flashcards!

Now, let us explain what the NYSTCE Flashcard Study System is not. It is not a comprehensive review of your education, as there's no way we could fit that onto a single set of flashcards.

Don't get us wrong: we're not saying that memorization alone will automatically result in a passing NYSTCE score- you have to have the ability to apply it as well. However, without the foundation of the core concepts, you cannot possibly hope to apply the information. After all, you can't apply what you don't know.

NYSTCE Flashcard Study System is a compilation of the hundreds of critical concepts you must understand to pass the NYSTCE. Nothing more, nothing less. --

If you think there's even the smallest chance that these flashcards will help you, you owe it to yourself to try them out. Don't let fear or doubt stand in the way of your opportunity to achieve the test score you need to fulfill your dreams.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Resource to Take Advantage Of January 14, 2014
I found these flashcards to be very helpful in committing the test material to memory. I bought these about a month away from when I was scheduled to take the exam, so I had plenty of time to wade through all the historical facts and information.

The portability of the cards made it so easy to study whenever I could find a few spare minutes in my day. I was able to use these during my breaks at work, when I had coffee between classes, and when I was eating breakfast in the morning. I was also able to divide the cards between the material I understood without a doubt and the material I was finding confusing. This way, I could carry the cards involving the material I was struggling with everywhere I went, which gave me more time to focus on my problem areas.

It was an excellent add-on to the study guide. Between these two resources, I feel that they gave me a distinct advantage over the other test takers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for everything, except specific subject CST's November 6, 2013
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
The book definitely had sufficient information to help me pass the LAST, and I'm sure if I bought this book earlier, with the ATS-W as well.

However, when it came time for the CST (and I took the social studies exam) I felt it didn't have enough to prep me, and I found myself buying a set of flash cards to help me study for that. The book recommended going on Wikipedia pages to study for social studies on the multiple subject CST, which I know is not the most credible of sources.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flash cards less overwhelming October 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
When I was studying for my teacher certification in Social Studies, I was nervous about the process. Getting that certification would make or break my career so I knew it was important. I looked online and found what I thought was a great study guide, but I didn't like the format. Basically because all of the information I needed to know was lined up in one guide and looking at it was too overwhelming for me. I felt like it was too much for me to learn in a short period of time and it made me want to give up. However, when I noticed there were flash cards that covered the same information as the study guide, I was excited and I bought them right away. They didn't cost much and they went over all the same material. But somehow, having it all broken up like that seemed less intimidating. I was able to learn just one card at a time and make my way through the stack. I could stop for breaks or whenever I got through a card so I had time to process it. I felt like I finally found a good way to learn and study. I only wish I had had flash cards like these leading up to every other test I've taken in the past!

Read through the cards a few times and passed the exam on first try. It covers the exam content nicely. Most of what I read I saw on the exam.
