Core Videos - CSET Multiple Subjects Subtest 1 (Language/Lit. Sample - Analogy)

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

Click below to play a sample Core Video from our CSET Multiple Subjects Subtest 1 Online Prep program.  This particular video focuses on analogies, including the two most common types of analogies you'll be asked to identify on the CSET: metaphors and similies.  Analogy is a topic that appears on Subtest 1 multiple choice questions, and it is also quite common to encounter constructed response questions in which you are given a short excerpt and asked to discuss the author's use of analogy in the passage.

When you purchase any of our CSET Multiple Subjects Subtest 1 Online Prep programs, you'll get Core Videos like this one covering every key reading, language, literature, and world, U.S., and California history 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!
