What makes this book different is that its author KNOWS this exam. He has worked with over 1000 students since 1999 on the MTEL. Most MTEL books are written by professors who have never personally worked with any MTEL student. How can they really know about this exam? Many books and Internet products are actually written for other states' exams. They only CHANGE THE COVER to read "MTEL." This book was created with you in mind. People with learning differences, those who need help with ESL, and many others with and without special issues have had great success with ETI’s programs and study materials—our students' passing rates increase over 500%. The curriculum is straightforward and concise, and it builds upon itself to help with the learning process. The students who have been through ETI’s MTEL (Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure) programs since 1999 say that it is the best in Massachusetts. They know; they have been through them all. The author's over 1500 students have offered experiences, suggestions, and feedback that are integrated in the strategies and skills presented. This book is important because it includes all of the skills you need to pass this exam. Nothing extra is included, and everything that is included is essential. The strategies are tested and approved by hundreds of test takers who have provided feedback and novel ideas over the last ten years.
