What I like most about this book is that it gives you practice questions to judge your knowledge of certain topics which are down-to-earth and real life issues we all face as a principal. Second, it provides you with a plan on how to prepare for the test and what to do each week prior to the test.
I have seen several reviews on this book and it has proven successful with several educators who are now principals in Texas schools.
Here are just a few items you will learn in this book:
2. Community Relations
3. Values and Ethics
4. Curriculum Planning
5. Instructional Leadership and Management
