I'm taking the CSET multiple subjects exam. I'm starting off with section 3, because I felt it was the easiest section. So far I've done pretty good. In the first practice test I got a raw store of 24 and needed 26 to pass. My biggest concern are those constructed response questions. One of them in the Cliff Study guide involves reading music! I can't read music at all and, despite studying for it, I'm still confused. If I score badly on one of the constructed response questions, can I still pass if my score on the multiple choice tests were high enough? Also, if I don't do well in one section, can I still pass if I do well on the other three sections, as it is with the CBEST. As for a general study strategy, I'm thinking of studying 1-2 hours per day M-F and 8 hours total on Saturday and Sunday. My test days 10/29, 11/13, and 11/28. For this coming week, I will focus on section 3 (10/29), Then for two weeks I will focus on section 1 (11/13) and the math in section 2. Then I will focus on the math and science in section 2 (11/29). I'm planning on using a lot of flash cards based on the information from Cliff Guide and the standards. How does that sound? I really need to pass the first time around, but I'm so busy with going to school full time and working full time. Any suggestions?
