NCE study resources:

Encyclopedia of Counseling, by Howard Rosenthal. It has a purple and white cover and can be found on Amazon. There are CD's and a book. The book is great for quizzing yourself on the CACREP standards, the CD's are "thoroughly enjoyable" to listen to during your commute.

Study Guide for the National Counselor Examination, by Andrew Helwig. You can find it here: https://www.counselorprep.com/about-dr-andrew-helwig/. The book has been a great resource, we have not used the CD's.

Study.com has a free practice exam that has been helpful. Both of us are too cheap to pay for an account beyond the 30-day trial.

NBCC/NCE Pocket prep is a great app to use on the go. There are questions of the day and exams. The answers come with explanations and Michelle is considering buying the extended version. We'll give you an update if that actually happens.

Praxis II Professional School Counselor Exam (5421): Secrets Study Guide, Your Key to Exam Success. It is written by Momentrix Test Preparation, and is available on Amazon. It has a yellow and black cover.

This study guide has been very helpful with studying for the Praxis, https://www.ets.org/s/praxis/pdf/5421.pdf
