While the topics and to some extent the textbooks used for both the CALE and NCCAOM exams are similar or even the same, the type of questions, the emphasis on specific information and the style of question is completely different. Bina has personally been teaching for both exams since 2008. She has her finger on the pulse of both exams and structures both course s to reflect the changes that happen on either exam. It is not advisable to take the CALE course to prepare for the NCCAOM or vice versa. When it comes to your board exam, you want to do it right, do it once and pass on the first try. One and Done!
