    Well, one can hope, but I have to be honest: that's cutting it rather close.

    Passing score

    Did you find out if the 87 was a passing score? I just took the test and scored an 87 as well. Any info would be appreciated.

    YES 87 was passing!

    I was quite suprised to learn that 87 was a 268 out of 300 which was passing. You probably did too! It was really a pleasant suprise but what a relief.

    Best wishes!

    Hey, Did you find out if you passed your test? I took it today and got a 72 out of 120. Let me know.

    Yes I passed. My 87 translated to a 268 out of 300. I was surprised that my results came back so fast. I took the test on a Saturday (computer test) and by Monday my scores were posted on the TEC website.

    I made a 72, and that came out to be a 247. You have to get a 240 for it to be a pass. I barely made it. I just used the study materials from the texes-ets website.

    I am taking the 161 in a bit over a week. No time to order study guides, so i am winging this one. Help!!!! What were your most helpful resources? Also was the content test more classroom based or legal issue based (or is that the PPR?) This is all so fast, and I am broke so I can't afford to keep taking it!! PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

    Congrats to all who have passed, please share the wisdom!

    The TExES materials are pretty impressive, yes. You could use them in conjunction with the Internet: if there are technical terms you don't recall or grasp, try looking them up on Answers.com.

    I would have to say you need to know both areas for the content. Know law, vocabulary, and classroom techniques. I ordered a software program from certifyteacher.com and that helped me pass the test the first time. However, it does cost $65 to download but was a really help if you can wing the cost. Good luck!

    Thnak You Janis,
    I too got the download from certifyteacher.com. I have taken the full practice twice, passed both times, and take the quizzes daily to keep fresh. I have also been writing out the flashcards, and sofe of my own from sped books and the competencies.

    Congrats on passing, i hope I do too, can't really afford to keep trying!!!

    STUDY GROUPS?????:confused:

    Is there anyone in the Houston area taking the 161 soon who would like to study, or a group that i can meet.

    I have some study materials prepared, but sometimes another perspective helps you find your weakness.

    I can meet late afternoons through early evening anyday except Tuesday next week. My test is the 11th :eek: so I really want to be ready.

    Raw scores like 74 don't necessarily translate into equal scaled scores for different versions of a test. But Duhnae (post #9) reported a 72 that translated into a passing score, so I wouldn't bet against you having passed. It probably makes sense to wait to ice the champagne, however, till the official score report comes in.
