CST Exam Information
One of the requirements for TESOL certification is to take and pass the Content Specialty Test (CST) in English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) test (116).
For information on the exam, visit the NYS webpage for the CST in ESOL at: http://www.nystce.nesinc.com/TestView.aspx?f=HTML_FRAG/NY116_TestPage.html. You will find information about the test on the site, including signing up for the exam. If you look on the right-hand side of the page, at the top of the column, there is a link: Preparation Materials. You'll find some information there on how to prepare for the exam, including a study guide and tutorials. That is generally all the teachers need to prepare for the exam.
