      > I'm a super advanced candidate; on my second try I received a 273 (yup).  I've done terrible on the assessments, so this last chance I'm going to retake two of them.  I'm going to retake the terms, because I did the worst on it!  I also need to retake either assessment four or five.  Any suggestions on which one to retake, and where should I go for study help?  I keep hearing that SIOP is what I need to finally achieve.  All and any input would be much appreciated.  If anyone wants my help, I scored the best on Entry 1 (a 3.8). I also need to use information from the prior assessments; the new information on assessments won't help me.

      > This exercise was one of my lowest scores, but I thought I did okay considering the number of words that could have popped up on the screen. There are just so many terms they can pull from and I got a few that I had never heard of. I also used lists from the internet and text books. I created flashcards to study from. The other ENL yahoo group has a lot of files available and some for ENL terms. Look up NBPTS_ENL.
