    I am taking this test in a month. Does anyone have any study guides or know of anything that can be used to help me pass this test? Any and all information/advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Let me start with the obvious: have you looked at the test documents on the GACE Web site?

    What of the content has you most concerned?

    Yes I have printed all the stuff that is available on the GACe website. I am wanting to know topics I should know , if there is any inside info on how to score well, What to study, and anything else.

    My recollection is that the materials on the Web site include a pretty good rundown of the topics that each subtest could cover. You might try working through those to see which you know and which you don't. This test has been around long enough that the makers have almost certainly devised multiple versions of each subtest; the practical consequence is that one can't count on seeing the same questions from one version to the next, since emphases are bound to differ.

    What I wouldn't recommend is committing a slew of names and dates to memory: the sample questions suggest, that like most good teacher tests, GACE is much less interested in what you can regurgitate than in whether you can reason historically.
