A powerful resource and tool for preparing for two of the most important examinations in counselor preparation and credentialing: the National Counselor Examination for Licensure and Certification (NCE) and the Counselor Preparation Comprehensive Examination (CPCE).

Specifically designed to help students preparing for the National Counselor Exam (NCE) or Counselor Preparation Comprehensive Examination (CPCE), and professional counselors preparing to take the NCE as a licensure exam, this practical guide provides numerous sample questions and four full-length practice exams–more than 1,000 questions in all–and offers pertinent information about the NCE and CPCE, including discussion of its rationale, structure, format, and scoring procedures.

 

Fully aligned with CACREP standards, the Study Guide for the NCE and CPCE features essential information on important topics from the various branches of knowledge comprising the counseling profession, aggregated into the eight CACREP and NBCC core knowledge areas: Human Growth and Development, Social and Cultural Foundations, Helping Relationships, Group Work, Career and Lifestyle Development, Assessment, Research and Program Evaluation, and Professional Orientation and Ethics. It provides multiple choice questions at the end of each section and four full-length practice examinations, as well as brief essay questions and key points for each of the core content areas.
