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).
Mastering the National Counselor Examination and the Counselor Preparation Comprehensive Examination is specifically designed to help students preparing for the NCE or CPCE and professional counselors preparing to take the NCE as a licensure exam. This practical guide provides numerous sample questions, includes four full-length practice exams — two for the NCE and two for the CPCE — and presents pertinent information about the NCE and CPCE, including discussion of its rationale, structure, format, and scoring procedures. Readers have ample opportunities to test their knowledge and practice answering the types of questions that they will encounter on the exams.

Fully updated to align with 2016 CACREP standards and current NCE/CPCE content, the 3rd Edition includes new test preparation items, additional case studies, and a revised glossary of key terms. An updated Chapter 1 includes test-taking strategies, and a revised Chapter 9 focuses on what future counselors need to know about getting a job and marketing themselves as professional counselors.
