Core Videos - CSET Science Subtest 1 (Sample - The Rock Cycle)

Your Own Personal Teacher... From the Comfort of Home

Click below to play a sample Core Video from our CSET Science Subtest 1 Online Prep program.  This particular video focuses on the rock cycle, a topic that commonly appears on both multiple choice and written response questions.

When you purchase any of our CSET Science Subtest 1 Online Prep programs, you'll get Core Videos like this one covering every key Astronomy, Dynamic Processes of the Earth, Earth Resources, Waves, Forces and Motion, and Electricity and Magnetism concept you need to pass.  You'll learn the same key subject matter you would in our live classes, as well as strategies for success on the various multiple choice and constructed response question types you can expect on the exam.  Then, once you are confident with the underlying subject matter, you can watch our Smart-STEM Virtual Tutoring videos, in which a tutor will show you how to apply your knowledge to the specific question types you are most likely to encounter on the actual test.

Both our Core Videos and Smart-STEM Virtual Tutoring videos are included in all our Online Prep programs!
