Strategy #41

This test was taken on Computer.

Study: XAM book for TExES certification exam and the practice exam on the website. I would tell someone who is studying to definitely study both the book and the website. Also, there aren't very many "easy" questions on the test, but there are in the book. Be prepared for harder questions (or not many "easy" ones on the test). Know math beyond the grade level you want to teach.

Test: The test questions were about what I expected although there weren't many "easy" ones, they were mostly average or rigorous. Also there were more questions related to teaching math than I thought there would be - so study that! Definitely look at the test on the website. Practice with the right kind of calculator.

Strategy #42

This test was taken on Paper.

Study: I went over the book "TExES Math 4 - 8 grades". I read it and completed the practice Math test. I went over all the subjects for TAKS 8th grade and I answered all of the problems. I also studied the book "THEA for High School" and I went through the math problems.

Test: It was harder than I expected. I didn't expect the PPR questions on strategies or lesson plans for Middle School. I would recommend to go over strategies for teaching Math.

Strategy #43

This test was taken on Computer.

Study: I did not study prior to the test. I was fortunate that I retained much of the subject matter and was fortunate to pass.

Test: The test was more complex than what I anticipated. I would encourage others to study prior to taking the Math test just to be on the safe side.

Strategy #44

This test was taken on Computer.

Study: I used the Pass the Texes Study Guide and took the sample test on the State website.

Test: The test was harder than expected but I would recommend using this study guide. I would recommend taking your time and checking over your work.

Strategy #45

This test was taken on Computer.

Study: Study manual helped me find out what I needed to review. I bought one Algebra and Trig manual and Barron's Geometry book from Barne's and Nobles.

Test: Easier than I expected because I reviewed a wide range of math. I didn't know what to expect so I tried to study every chance I got. There were plenty of questions that dealt with graphs and indirect/direct relations.

Strategy #46

This test was taken on Paper.

Study: Worked through 8th grade Math book and college Algebra book.

Test: A (light) touch of calculus, some geometry and trig.

Strategy #47

This test was taken on Paper.

Study: I used library books, online practice tests, and 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Math workbooks to study.

Test: It was what I expected, some questions I know, others I did not.

Strategy #48

This test was taken on Computer.

Study: Resources from TEXES website work best. Don't buy any study guides, expecially mometrix. It was not good. Use Measuring up books and Math Teachers book of lists to fill in holes in yoru concepts and skills. Alos, there are good online videos on Youtube for brushing up on fuzzy skills. Set a study schedule and pace yourself.

Test: The Math 4-8 was easier than I expected. I passed on my first try.

Strategy #49

This test was taken on Computer.

Study: I haven't done any math in 8 yrs. I studied Cliff Quick Review of Basic Math/Pre-Algebra and 9th grade TAKS study materials.

Test: The exam is basically a 9th grade TAKS test. I passed. I recommend taking it online instead of paper. You get your results MUCH faster!! They give you scatch paper so that you can work out the problems.

Strategy #50

This test was taken on Computer.

Study: I purchased practice tests. 100 questions each. 5 tests. Brushed up on calculations, algebra, geometry, basic math. I used this study method because I passed the Series 7 and Series 63. I would TOTALLY study about "teaching concepts'. None of my practice tests had those types of questions.

Test: Harder than I expected. I was ready to do some calculations and crack down on some algebra/geometry. I hardly had any of those types of questions. One questions I recall was. "A teacher places 6 red disks on an overhead projector and places 4 blue disks over them, he then removes the 4 blue and 4 red disks, only leaving the remaining 2 red disks. What concept is the teacher trying to teach?" Scored a 225. 15 points shy. Oh well, back up plan is to take generalist tests and sub in the mean time to see what school district I want to work in. GOOD LUCK!
