U.S. Constitution Preparation

This unique, non-credit exam preparation course will prepare participants to successfully take the U.S. Constitution Exam, and satisfy the U.S. Constitution requirement for educators seeking a California teaching credential. The exam focuses on the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of the government. Students benefit from having an introductory knowledge of U.S. and California politics.

Students are to bring study materials, notepaper, and a #2 pencil and pen to class. Study materials will be forwarded to the student upon receipt of the registration form/payment. The test consists of 50 multiple-choice questions and two essays.

The Department of Continuing and Professional Education makes a commitment to your success for the U.S. Constitution exam. If a student fails to pass this exam immediately after completing the Continuing and Professional Education Prep course, the next scheduled preparation course will be offered at no charge. This is a one-time offer.
