    I'm taking the Constitution Exam administered by the Contra Costa Office of Education. I believe it's the same one administered at UCLA, comprised of 75 T/F questions. Has anyone taken this test? I've been studying out of the recommended book, but I'm getting nervous about it..

    Why do you have to take a Constitution exam? Are you a new citizen?

    Sometimes I think that all teachers, at the very least, should haveto take and pass the Constitution Exam. Honestly, most citizens should have to take the exam. Would you like to hazard a guess at what the percentage would be who could pass it on the first try?

    Contra Costa is in California; California requires a prospective teacher to pass a test on the US Constitution if the prospective teacher's college transcript doesn't include a course that the credentialing authorities accept as covering the content. (Anyone who gets a current UC or CSU undergrad degree should be covered: some kind of US history or civics coursework is part of the general education requirements.)

    As for jklm0413, my best advice is to take a deep breath. If a US Constitution exam is advertised as correlating with a specific book, it does.
