Thanks for your help! I am getting a tutor next week before I take that test... I am tired of being a regular there

Congratulations. Did you have to take the multiple subject CSET as well? I'm always curious how those who struggle on the CBEST end up doing on the CSET because it has quite a bit more depth.

People who struggle with CBEST math may struggle with CSET-MS math too, bison, but some test takers get sidetracked out of sheer boredom; composing a formal essay, with all the bells and whistles in structure and conventions, is (or should be) a rather different matter than roughing out a constructed response; and some people find the relatively randomness of the reading-comprehension passages in CBEST more upsetting than they do the content-oriented stimuli in the CSET-MS questions.

Congratulations surfepaul for passing CSET M.S. What score you got in the exam? I am in florida and passed FTCE test with good marks. For cracking this California Subject Examinations for Teachers exam requires a good study Methods, Strategies and Multiple Subjects Content knowledge which will help to crack this exam. Once you try for one subject then it will be easier for you to pass in other subjects as well.

surferpaul you make me feel better about my struggles with the math section! I have seen so many posts with people saying how easy they think the math is. I have been reviewing math for the past 2 months or so for this and because I want to take the GRE in August. The CBEST practice test has been a big help as well as various youtube videos. I am taking the test here in NYC on via the computer on April 8th, hopefully I will pass!

Hi

I just tried taking the cbest practice test. I got 39/50. Is this good enough? How do I know what type of scaled score this is? Thanks!
:-)
