Complete Course of Studies

Resource Kits

Teach the curriculum with these prose learning guides. They are thoroughly researched, written by subject experts in clear, engaging prose, and formatted for ease of use. Special resource kits are available in prepared speech, impromptu speech, interview, essay and critical reading.

Power Guides

These outline-style guides review every testable detail in each event. Written only by Decathletes who’ve scored 8,000+, they are bold, efficient, and comprehensive.

Cram Kits

Cram kits organize key facts, most likely questions, and “things you probably forgot” in easy-to-use tables and lists for that last-minute crunch.


Learn the official booklets through a combination of exercises, activities, and tutorial segments. Workbooks also include all the necessary research components.

Focused Quizzes & Exams

These tests divide each event into smaller sections—quizzes into very small sections, such as individual poems or Super Quiz articles, exams into larger sections.

Progressive Exams

These full-length multiple choice exams go from one to three, easy to hard, for use at different times in the season.

Comprehensive Exams

These full-length simulated Decathlon tests are modeled in coverage and style after those found at the competition.
