REA's online diagnostic test and two full-length practice exams are based on today's FTCE Professional Education test. Our targeted materials let you thoroughly measure your test-readiness, based on every competency, type of question, and skill you need to know. The online practice tests at the REA Study Center come with automatic scoring, timed testing conditions, and diagnostic feedback to help you zero in on the topics and types of questions that give you trouble now, so you can succeed on test day.

The book includes the same two practice tests that are offered online, but without the added benefits of automatic scoring analysis and diagnostic feedback.
