Shmoop for California

Even if some folks bust out the garlic and holy water each time they hear the words Common Core, California and Shmoop thankfully know better. It’s old news that all of our course lessons have identified CCSS alignment and teachers can search for Shmoop resources by standard. But wait, there’s more! Shmoop offers a substantial course catalog, as well as specialized test prep, just for CA!

Award-Winning Test Prep

Standardized tests may be a necessary evil, but Shmoop’s test prep solutions are anything but. Whether it’s ACT®, SAT® , PSAT, and AP®, we have the materials. And we do things differently.

Shmoop uses diagnostic testing to identify each individual student’s strengths and weaknesses. From there, students and teachers can build customizable test prep journeys aimed at producing the strongest test results possible for each student.

In addition to our witty tone and hilarious repartee, all of our Test Prep packages include:

  • Placement and diagnostic exams
  • Individualized study plans
  • Targeted drills
  • Comprehensive, in-depth topic review
  • Full-length practice exams

Smarter Balanced + Shmoop Test Prep = Smarter, Balanced Students

  • Smarter Balanced Grades 6, 7, 8, and 11
