Aloha, Californians! As residents of our home state, you all have a very special place in our hearts. However, that means you also have to pass the California High School Exit Exam in order to graduate. It can't be all fabulous weather and palm trees all the time, you know. Whether it's pronounced "CAY-see" or "CAH-see," the CAHSEE will put you through your grade-level paces in reading, writing, and math. You have eight chances to pass the CAHSEE, but why not get it in one with Shmoop's guide to the test?

What's Inside our Online CAHSEE Test Prep:

Test-Taking Tips

Dominate the CAHSEE with the tips, strategies, and review material we designed for just you! Yes, you. No, we're serious. What else do we have to do to convince you, hire a skywriter?

If we did, our skywriter-for-hire would have to explain CAHSEE format, logistics, and scoring. He'd also need to describe why Shmoop HQ isn't a literal circus, how to write a professional business for your Penguin-of-the-Month club, and why there are two different Statistics, Data, and Probability sections on the exam. Just kidding. Nobody's interested that last one.

In other words, our skywriter might want to pack some trail mix. It's going to be a long flight.

Two Full-Length Practice Exams

At first glance, the CAHSEE might not look too intimidating. After all, it only tests students on English-Language Arts and Mathematics. Once we dig deeper, though, things get hairy. ELA includes both Reading and Writing sections, not to mention an essay masquerading as a "writing task." Mathematics includes questions from seven different subject areas. We can do the math: three full-length practice exams are a good thing.

Practice Drills

Ever had a free Saturday afternoon to yourself and thought, "Man, I could really spend some time doing some extra practice problems for the CAHSEE"? Here's a better question: who hasn't? We've got you covered with hundreds of practice problems, including questions that look like the ones you'll get on the test as well as review questions just for funsies. Invite your friends!


If you're not sure where to start, take our diagnostic exam. Subjects on the CAHSEE are a blast from the past, so rediscover your old favorites and the ones that need a little elbow grease (or a few economy-sized drums) before you're ready for the real thing.

"CAY-see" or "CAH-see"? The name won't matter when you crush the test.
