## The Absolute Best Book** to Ace the CBEST Math** Test

The California Basic Educational Skills Test, or known as CBEST, is a test required for people who want to teach in public schools in California. The CBEST has three parts:

- Reading
- Writing
- Mathematics

There are 50 multiple-choice questions in each reading and math section. Candidates have four hours to complete the test, and there is no time limit for each section. Depending on your local test site, you may take a paper-and-pencil test or a computer-based test.

The CBEST mathematics subtest does not allow any test-taker to use any type of calculator. It means that everyone who takes the CBEST mathematics subtest will need to perform calculations themselves. In addition to calculators, calculator watches, and other electronic devices like cell phones do not allow in the test area. There is no exception for participants in the CBEST test. A complete list of prohibited items is available through the CBEST test page on the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) test website.

Individuals who register for each CBEST subtest, including the math test, will receive a booklet and pen to use answers during the testing process. Because test takers are not allowed to have a calculator in the test area, they must use this booklet when working with test questions to perform calculations manually.
