Strategy #11

This test was taken on Computer.

Study: I used the book XAMonline (not actually online). The book was extremely disappointing and was filled with typos. NOT worth the money. I would say about 40% of the book was relevant to the actual test, although the practice test was good. I searched online for practice tests and I must say, I really freaked out when I went to and looked at those practice tests because the questions were mostly things that had nothing to do with what I had been studying in the book. DO NOT FRET! The test was nothing like that and so do NOT pay money for those practice tests.

Test: For some background, I only took this test because I thought it was going to be an in at a specific school. I enjoy sports, but I am horrible at them and am not an expert on all of the rules and terminology of the different sports. I have never taken an anatomy class and do not have any science background. I got a 256. I thought the test was really hard, but I still managed to do very well. There were a lot of questions about mature movements and how you would modify class activities for people with special needs. I can't recommend any specific study materials since I didn't like mine, but take your time, visualize the movements in your head, and you should do fine! I left the test thinking I bombed it, but I did very well!

Strategy #12

This test was taken on Computer.

Study: XAM TExES book worked well for teacher oriented questions. School library should have them.

Test: The test was pretty easy. Study up on Biomechanics, and read the questions twice and see what there looking for.

Strategy #13

This test was taken on Computer.

Study: I studied for about 3 weeks. I used the Xam online Study Guide. The Xam online study guide questions are very true to the test. 2 days before the exam I paid $55 for the certify teacher online access. The practice exams were helpful. I did the tests 3 times and it was worth the $55.

Test: The test was about what I expected. Repeating the practice exam in the Xam online book will help with the test. Take your time and read the questions carefully. There will be more than one correct answer. Choose the best answer.

Strategy #14

This test was taken on Computer.

Study: I used the free online study guide and googled the competencies. There was material that cam up from my search. I just studied those along with understanding the terms in the guide. I only studied a few days, but I have been a certified personal trainer for over 6 years.

Test: I took my time and read every question. I marked the questions I wanted to come back to. If you can eliminate the wrong, you have a better chance of getting them right. It wasn't as bad as I imagined.

Strategy #15

This test was taken on Computer.

Study: : I used the TExES Preperation Manual, as well as the XAMonline P.E. book (bought on Amazon for $15.00). Both worked good, some areas were common sense, but the motor/movement skills and health related portions were beneficial.

Test: The test was much different than I anticipated after studying the tools I had. It was a bit harder than I thought it would be, but I passed on the first attempt. Make sure you read the questions thoroughly to see what they are really asking for.

Strategy #16

This test was taken on Computer.

Study: What I used to study for the test was the ETS free test guide and youtube videos based on the competencies. What I did was read the competencies and I looked up the important vocabulary words on youtube. I am more of a visual learner so I prefer to see it then google it for a better understanding.

Test: taking the test was a bit challenging because i just studied the day before the test and also the day of the test for about an hour. Overall, it was ok but what did help was studying the cognitive, social, and emotional development in depth and also figuring out how to implement all the definitions from competencies into a scenario. I was blessed to pass it the first time and with little preparation, but the stuff that I did study happen to be very helpful as well.

Strategy #17

This test was taken on Computer.

Study: I used the free online study guide. I went through each topic and made sure I knew the necessary vocabulary for each and how each concept related to the PE class. It is all about relating the topics to an actual situation.

Test: Way easier than I thought. If you know the words and definitions within each concept and know how to integrate that into a class you'll be fine.

Strategy #18

This test was taken on Computer.

Study: I used a couple of free test samples that you can pull offline. They were fine for being free. I also bought the Xamoline TEXES PE book which had a great practice test. I felt this was extremely helpful. I did a practice test on certifyteacher as well, which was good. There are a ton of useful tests but they do cost. I only did one and I did it the night before because I felt I just needed to. I also bought an Ibook (TEXES PE Secrets Study Guide). I did not find this useful, although it does have a decent practice test. Overall, all these practice tests were different from each other. To do it all over, I wouldn't have bought the ibook. I'd still have bought the Xamonline book and may have utilized more too.

Test: I felt the test was easier than expected. I had taken so many different types of practice tests and I didn't know which one was more like the real test. I feel like the Xamonline book helped a lot. I passed the first time with a 274/300.

Strategy #19

This test was taken on Computer.

Study: Kinesiology and related majors need not worry. Studied the TEXES ebook. Fairly useful in showing how the questions were formatted.

Test: Easier than expected. Don't be nervous.

Strategy #20

This test was taken on Computer.

Study: I used various tests from other states. I also used the comments from this sight as well. I used a physical education book from half price books.

Test: test was pretty easy once I calmed down and focused and read each question I came to find out that it was pretty easy. I scored a 259 on the exam. When you go take it just remember it is common sense read each question.
