    Hello,

    I have been struggling to pass the Rica and would like some suggestions/recommendations. I noticed above someone mentioned they have a study guide. If anyone is willing to assist me with this I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

    Ready2Teach25, I do need to point out that the post to which you responded was posted in 2007.

    Have you taken RICA before? If so, what do you see on your official score report(s)?

    I Rocha is pretty new, vsimpkins, so it's possible that you need to PM first.

    I Rocha, have you taken RICA before? Have you finished your reading-instruction methodology coursework?

    What patterns of pluses and case-study diagnostics are you seeing on your official score report, Fabreezy?

    Hello, Stargazer. You need to get a few posts under your belt - by way of proving to the forum software that you're a Real Live Person and not a spambot with a nifty alias - before you can PM others.

    I infer that RICA's giving you grief. What seems to be the problem?

    vsimpkins, the issue is exactly the same as with I Rocha: a member with just one post CANNOT initiate a PM, though the member can respond to one that you initiate.

    RICA Prep Class

    Hi, I have put off taking the RICA since I started my credential program. I finished my program and started studying for it this summer. I do not feel like I am "getting" everything the way I did while studying for the CSET. I've taken practice tests in the CliffsNotes book and the Rossi case studies book, scoring between 80-95% on them. On the one hand, I want to just quit studying and take the test to get it over with. On the other hand, I am thinking about taking a prep class just to guide me in studying more thoroughly and with more focus.

    Has anyone had luck with those kinds of courses? Would you recommend it? I have only been able to find the National University ones. If anyone has any advice or recommendations I would truly appreciate it!

    Signed,
    Ripping My Hair Out for RICA :help:

    Send me a private message with your email and I can email you a RICA study guide that I developed when I was being tutored for the RICA. I have helped many with this too and it's FREE.
