Hi, meeper22
I think I took the same verson of the test that you described in your post. I studied the cliff notes book and nothing in the book was on the test. I failed but did not get the official score yet. I have to pass this test by the first of April. I am afraid if I use the same study guide I will not pass. Can someone please recomend a good study guide that will help me to be successful on passing the second time around.

Hugs, determined.

I know of one line of teacher-test prep books that includes no practice questions whatsoever; the author's rationale is that people get so hung up on the specific practice questions that they lose sight of all the different ways that a concept can be tested. Eliminating the practice questions is going a bit far, but the author has a point.

Teacher tests as a class seem to have moved from regurgitation of facts to application of principles. This is a positive development in my opinion, but it does require a somewhat different approach from the test taker. Since these questions often pose scenarios, your task is to analyze the scenario in terms of who or what is present and the principles involved: if you're pushing a file cart up a ramp, you're working against the force of gravity but not so much against friction, but if you're pushing a box of books up the same ramp, both gravity and friction need to be taken into account.

Substitute Teacher
Frustrated also

Hi. I myself took the SAE 3 times and did not pass. The second time I took it, I was 25 points away from passing, The tird time I took it, I was 8 points away from passing. I studied every book and study guide. I am now frustrated becasue it is holding back my student teaching. Would you be able to help out in study tips or materials. I plan on taking it again in the middle of June.

I have just taken the Elem Ed K-6 and failed. I used Cliff Notes for a study guide and about 6 questions were on the test. I was extremely upset because I studied for 2 months and nothing was on the test. Some things I taught to my class happen to be on there and that was helpful but if you are not teaching and the guides do not help then there is no way of passing.

So happy to hear that. Can you please advise as to what test guides you felt helped the most to pass this test. I studied with Cliff Notes and it did not help one bit. I sat there and wanted to walk out but 200 dollars is a lot of money. Not to mention the retake is even more, I am not rich and do not spend anymore money then I have to. Thanks.
