    I was so nervous to take my cset MS subtest 1 exam today!!I didn't even sleep the night before because I was so worried!! I studied for two months...and I am glad I did. I used teacher test prep, Cliffs, barrons, and a couple of what your __ grader needs to know. Overall I think the cliffs and teacher test prep were the most helpful they are the closest to what you can get to the real thing. ...I feel pretty confident that I passed but now I am just waiting for my results until september :/ (sigh).

    I took my 4th attempt at Subtest 1 yesterday and I started crying in the middle of the test. I hope you passes.

    I will be taking the CSET Multiple Subject Subset 1: English and History in two weeks, and I don't feel so confident. I have been studying for this subset for two months now. I have been studying from the cliffs note, teacher test prep, and khan academy. I feel confident in the history section, but not so much with the English section. I was wondering what kind of materials/ resources did you use to prepare you specifically for the English section?

    I'm really hoping that the practice questions from teacher test prep, cliffs note, and the actual CSET website are similar to the actual test.I have been doing the practice questions and so far I got most of them correct. However, I've heard that those practice question are completely different from the actual test, so I'm not sure of what to expect from the actual test.

    Practice tests are intended to give a sense of how the subtest and a variety of question types work. Don't be put off course by the question that appears to be entirely unfamiliar. Most CSET questions are designed to be reasoned through - that is, even a highly skilled test taker has to work out the answer rather than knowing it right off. Look for the fundamental principles you do know as they lurk in the question that seems to be about something you don't know.

    If you haven't yet had reading instruction methodology coursework (and possibly even if you have), ReadingRockets.org can be helpful (though some of its explanations are geared to parents, and as a writer of constructed responses you should be writing for fellow teachers).

    Has anyone gone to a test prep class by teacher test prep? I've been using their online courses and wondering whether I should go to a real one. Is the material at the real prep class the same as the online video and slides? Thanks!

    I live in Louisiana and I am scheduled to take the 5001 Multiple Subjects test. I have been studying alot and wanted to know if it is easy. I am so nervous and I do not want to blank when taking the test. I really need to pass it the first time so my student teaching does not get backex up.
