    Has anyone recently taken Cset math, subtest 2 test. What is the minimum number of right question required to be answered correctly.. My result is due later this month.

    There isn't a definitive answer to that question, Fgmd, partly because the constructed responses contribute to the score differently than the multiple-choice questions do, and partly because the number of raw points required to make the scaled score of 220 differs from version to version of the test. With that said, bear in mind that 220 is on a scale that goes from 100 to 300: a passing score on CSET would be a failing score on most classroom tests.

    CSET 2 is the Geometry and Stats test yes? I found that to be the simplest of the three. It is actually high school level material and they let you use a calculator. Whereas the other 2 tests are college level math. I think if you are getting over 2/3 right you are probably going to pass, I know there were many questions I bombed and still passed.

    I agree, around 2/3 is probably good enough to pass. I got ++++ on the MC and +++ on the CR and passed.

    Thank you so much. I can remember 3 wrong absolutely.. 2 Xyz coordinate questions I cudnt answer. But I made guesses... Remember 24 out of 32 mcq's.. Can figure out like 17 were correct.. 2 CR were also like OK.. For the third I derived a formula... Very very confused what will happen.

    That's within eight points of passing: that's a bridgeable gap, in my experience. What are you seeing on your constructed response diagnostics?

    Have you tried Khan Academy, www.khanacademy.org?

    innovationguy, an A to Z member who has taught this stuff, has recommended Barron's Geometry the Easy Way; Malcolm, who at one point had taken pretty much every CSET in math, science, and tech ed, liked Schaum's Outlines. Supplement heavily with the Internet: it's amazing how much math is on there, and Wikipedia is a better "what's up with THAT?" source than you might think.

    Do you think you learned much from Khan, or did it just irritate you? There are certainly alternatives.

    For CSET, k without p, s, or d means the test taker's answer was on track but didn't show sufficient earmarks of really knowing the subject area. Your audience - the scorers - consists of math teacher and people who teach math teachers: they're not looking for a response that would enlighten a student or a parent but rather something that would convince whoever chairs the math department that you're ready to run with the big dogs.

    Get a good night's sleep tonight, eat a decent breakfast tomorrow, and if you find yourself needing to take a short break during testing tomorrow, take it: your brain will function better afterward.

    'Course, you might have been looking for advice about something else...

    I highly recommend referring to InnovationGuy's list of prep resources. I used "Geometry: Concepts and Applications" by Cummins. This book was outstanding in preparing me for the Geometry content for Subtest 2. You can get this book for under $20 on Amazon since it's an older version. Do not waste money on the most recent versions, since math does not change.

    As for stats I bought "EZ-101 Statistics" by Sternstein. This book was OK, more of a reference guide. I found online resources more useful.
