Hello everyone,
I am relatively new to the site, and I'm scheduled to take the FTCE Elementary K-6 Exam at the end of next month. I am a career changer, currently working in administration at a university, and hold a bachelor's degree in Business, and a Master's degree in Liberal Studies. I already have the XAM Book, and I am currently studying from the (Elementary K-6) Module from the Florida Department of Education. I need to ensure that I pass on the first go, as I cannot really afford to pay $200. Does anyone have any other suggestions as far as study materials go?

I will greatly appreciate any assistance that anyone can provide.

Thanks!

Gigi

Welcome to A to Z, GISELAD.

Are the materials you're using so far teaching you a great deal you didn't know before?

Of the domains that the test covers, which have you most nervous?

Are you generally good as a test taker?

Good afternoon TeacherGroupie,
Yes, the materials are definitely teaching me things I either didn't know or just did not recall. I just want to ensure that I am studying the correct material and not filling my brain up with unnecessary material.

I am most nervous about the Math and Science areas, although the Language Arts is now beginning to worry me (this is suppose to be my strength).

My biggest concern is that I have never been a good test taker. I retain answers, but apply them to incorrect questions/scenarios.

Any valuable suggestions??

Thank you!

The Competencies (sorry I don't have the link handy) lay out what is and isn't tested. If a bit of information isn't positively excluded by the Competencies, there's nothing wrong with learning it - and the trick is to think less in terms of avoiding material you don't need and more in terms of how things you know and are learning can be used to help you reason out an answer.

Here's a use for practice tests you've already been through: pick a question in science. If the question sets up a scenario without naming it, write down the name of the scenario by the question stem; if the question names a phenomenon, jot down an example of it from a book you have or from the Internet, and then jot down another example - of it playing out in your own life. (The rock cycle, for example, can be partially modeled by what happens to the leftover apple pie in the Tupperware in one's fridge when someone leaves the two-pound slab of mozzarella cheese on top of it: what part of the pie gets most mooshed?) Do likewise with the possible answers. Then think about what the notes you've just made suggest about what the correct answer must be.

Thanks!
