The Best TExES Test Prep

You’ve taken the next step towards your certification journey. Congratulations! Now that you’ve officially enrolled in our program, your next step is to start preparing to take your content exams. According to the Texas Department of Education, you are required to take the Texas Examinations of Education Standards (TExES) exams in order to pursue certification. You’ll take specific exams depending on the content area you wish to pursue. For example, if you wanted to teach high school social studies, you’d take the Social Studies (7-12) exam. If you already know what area you’d like to teach, that’s great! All that’s left is to register for your exams and get to studying. Texas Teachers is committed to your success as a teacher, which is why we’ve created this list of the best TExES test prep programs, along with our discount codes.
