    I have taken the ec-4 generalist test 3 TIMES and have not passed. I got a job offer at a school, and want to make sure I will be able to take the job without havnig passed the test. I went through an alternative program online and they are just not that helpful. I am taking the test again wednesday on the computer and need all the advice I can get! Any tips....:help:

    I would change your study technique. Maybe invest in some of the study guides available at Barnes & Noble. Here in TX you can go on line to the state TEA website and print out a practice exam (with answers guide) and practice taking the test. My ACP school let us take practice tests on line for free. I would say practice, practice, practice and study up on all of the areas where you are having problems in. I know the test here was 40% ELA and I thought that this was my strong areas, yet I did the weakest in that area. Good Luck to you:)

    And if you are in Texas, remember to answer the questions as if you are in a perfect world. Throw out what you might have seen in schools and give textbook answers.

    I am sorry, it is not actually called for ec-4 generalist for dummies. I just went to look for it and it is the Cliffs Test Prep book. It just LOOKS like all the other dummies books...lol

    I am getting ready to take the EC-4 Generalist test and I was wondering if there are any actual math problems on the test?

    You might want to download the free doc on the TExES Web site that lays out the test framework and gives sample questions.

    There are math problems on the test because most of it is made up of content area questions. You do need to answer the questions as though you were in a perfect world because that is what they are looking for.

    I'm curious. How could they offer you a job if you hadn't already passed? Was this a public school?
