    I am using study dot com also. I have been using it since October on and off. I haven't retaken the test yet so I'm unsure if I will be successful. However, I remember a lot of questions from the 2 times I've taken the test so I'm hopeful.

    I just got my results . I scored a 188 , the first time I took it I received a score of 145 . So my score is improving . Maybe the next time I will pass . I found a workshop , it's $150 but it's specifically for this test . I'm thinking about taking it , I just need 12 more points !!

    Hey Angel,
    I'm just seeing your response. I don't have any alerts for this website so I sometimes forget to check it. I wish there was a study group or something. I need to just hurry up and study and put this test behind me.There are so many math positions open in my county and I already work in the front office of school.

    I passed the test last year and I used this website - it is the course that teachers take to refresh their knowledge of the 5-9 exam. It is from the state and it includes everything you need to know on the test.

    Hi AngelTrovab,

    How has the studying been going? I am following Mrs.Florida's advice and using the portal. Have you passed the test yet?

    I am very discouraged to be honest but I do study. I signed up for a seminar / review class just for the test. The class is march 18th for 8 hours . I will re test after the review in hopes it will get me my 12 points More I need to pass . I am so amazed there is no help out there for us from the district . My friend said they are so desperate they are offering sign on bonuses for teachers . Why no help out there ? Ugh

    I tried but I guess my chances are slim to none here in Duval due to mid year resignation, taught in 2015 from oct-dec, it's a bad experience. Can't get a teaching job unless I leave this sucky place. I tried Clay but I get the same cold treatment. I feel like my skills and efforts are futile.

    Any tips on studying for the exam ? I attempted the 6-12 twice and failed miserably by 20 points . I attempted the 5-9 failed by only 12 points .

    If you have the REA, use it and add more resource books that you can find from the bibliographical sources found on the test guide for math 5-9 in FLDOE's website. It can be overwhelming. But if you are really passionate about your subject, you'll do whatever it takes.
