"I took the 141 test on July 6th as well. It took me 4 hours and 30 minutes. I do have a background in computer science that certainly helped me a lot. However, I believe [Foundations of Computer Science for Teachers] will prepare any person that is willing to work hard. I also have a coworker that took the test and passed. We both attended the two day training in Austin; nonetheless, she couldn't get in this online training. I believe the sequence of doing the two-training first and then reviewing using this online resource is the way to go."

"[Foundations of Computer Science for Teachers] is an absolute lifesaver!!! I have a CS degree but have been out of the programming side for numerous years. My test will be happening in a few weeks and this course has given me the confidence I needed. It is structured very well and the videos are outstanding. If you are going to become a teacher in this field, sign up for this course and pay the fee to get access to the quizzes. You will not regret it!"
Waller High School, Waller ISD
"All materials and quizzes were easy to follow. I appreciated that the practice problems allowed me to learn. At times I got the correct answer but was not confident that I understood the material. The practice problems allowed me to see reasoning behind the correct answer."

"I am beyond grateful for the instruction you provided for us these last 2 days. I have been preparing for the test since last year with no success. The concepts, resources, and clarity you provided were beyond expectations. Thank you again for everything!"
