    Hi Everyone,

    Has anyone taken the NYSTCE Students with Disabilities exam. I'm in the process of preparing for the exam. I 'm looking for people to share their thoughts on study guides or other materials that have helped them aced the exam.

    Has anyone used the NYSTCE Students with Disabilities (060) Test Flashcard system by NMTA Exam Secrets Test Prep Team. Was it helpful.

    Thanks!!!

    I got a few test prep books and just read over the information in each section. There's really so much that can be covered so I didn't worry about memorizing anything specific. I started studying about 3 months before the exam and did fine.

    Bear in mind, teach28, that one doesn't need to ACE the test: one merely needs to PASS it. NYSTCE exams are scored on a scale from 100 to 300, and a passing score is 220.

    How are you generally as a test taker, and how well versed are you already in special education?

    Hey, teach28. I worked with the guys at JBB Test Prep for preparation for the special ed test. They approach the test STRATEGICALLY, which was a much better use of my time since I could study the content stuff on my own. They give you a work book, grade an essay, AND give you a quick reference guide. The only other option really is the XAM book which in new condition was approaching almost half the price of JBB, with no live instruction of course. I got a 270 on the exam. Hey - it worked for me!

    You can google JBB Test Prep and it comes up.

    Thanks for the information. I don't test well and I am quite knowledgeable in special education.

    My apologies, teach28: I've been a little booked.

    Here's a strategy that helps a lot of people who are in your situation: Try imagining, during the test, that you've been asked the question by your very favorite colleague who doesn't know special education very well - and really visualize that person asking you. Then answer accordingly.
