The purpose of the test is to assess your personal literacy and numeracy skills.  The test has been designed to reflect the contexts in which aspiring teachers are likely to exercise personal literacy and numeracy: personal and community, schools and teaching, and further education and professional learning.

The Australian Government Department of Education, Skills and Employment (the department) and ACER do not recommend or endorse any commercially available courses offering preparation for the test. Neither the department nor ACER has knowledge of the content of such courses, or any involvement in their development, or any commercial interest in the programs. Thus we are unable to comment on their relevance or usefulness. It is possible that some commercial preparation courses might provide misleading information or advice to you.

However, ACER provides practice material to help you prepare for the test.
