    I agree with you the test is so random and the practice tests are so different then the actual test. I'm so frustrated!!!!!


    QUOTE=doxieteacher;1193018]Does anyone who passed this exam have any study tips? I just found out that I did not pass and am a little frustrated. I found the test to be so random so I am not sure how to study for my retake in June. I did terrible in the social studies and math and just ok in the other sections. I have the Rosado and Cliff Notes EC-4 books but am wondering if there is a better resource out there? Thanks![/QUOTE]

    I bought the big yellow book. I don't see much use of it :(


    QUOTE=steelerfever1;1759301]teacherfun2013,

    I will just say that you must STUDY! Some people say that it is hard to study for but you should at least try... and I used a book called the The Big Yellow Book: The Ultimate Guide to Passing the TeXes Exam. Along with CertifyTeacher.com those 2 resources helped me a bunch! Hope this helps!!! :) GOOD LUCK[/QUOTE]

    I studied with the Rosado book and the T-Cert website and made exactly a 240 :lol: I prayed for a 240 or above and got just what I needed but it's still funny to me. On the dot.

    I had about a week to study and only used those two resources and made a 240 so I know with more time I could have did better but 240 is the same as 300. I passed and got a job :D

    Time and study study and really look at the questions. With so many being down to two go back and reread the question and then look at both answers and find the difference between them. That difference is in the question

    I am preparing to take the state exam, too. However, I'm not sure whether to take the Generalist EC-6 or the new Core Subjects.

    Does anyone know if there is a difference? I know the Generalist (191) will be discontinued in August and that the Core Subjects is about twice as many questions in the same amount of time. I'm just not sure which to take.

    I also looked over a few of the sample questions and there were many that I had no idea of the answer. Are there any books out there that explain the actually information you are learning, such as reading and language arts? These sample questions were talking about phonemes, etc., and I am not familiar with that.

    I am just starting a teacher post-certification school so my background is in library and science. I have a feeling this test is going to be a bear for me versus someone that just came out of an educational degree program.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)

    The general rule with teacher tests is that if you pass the older version in May, you don't need to take the newer one when it comes out in August. Either the TExES pages or the state DOE Web site should clarify this point.

    Knowing what I know about teacher tests, library and information studies, and science, I'll venture that you're better equipped to do this than you think - though, yes, the reading-instruction content sandbags nearly everyone, because that's material that tends not to be taught much of anywhere except a teacher-ed program.

    Hugs, Ratuli. Your score report should give some idea where you're coming up short.

    I am so frustrated. I've taken the exam twice. The first time, I was blind sided by the format and scored 238. The second time, I studied by butt off daily, did practice exams, used several resources and still ended up with 235. The second time around was MUCH HARDER than the first. I just don't know what else to do. Any suggestions?

    Hugs, Truman08. Does your score report point out subject areas in which you came up short? Are you generally a pretty good test taker?

    My acp gave me this link: https://pact.tarleton.edu/TCERT/index.cfm?CFID=491103&CFTOKEN=35498670
    I'm not sure if you need permission to register, but it is worth a shot to try. I used it for my esl and ppr exams and it helped A LOT! Print the handouts and read them, watch the vids, and do the practice test.
    Also, download the quizlet app and search for your texes exam of choice and study with it, the "matching game" worked wonders for me.

    Thanks for that information. I just registered. I've taken the test several times as well and can't seem to pass. This time I'm going to use every resource available. I am generally not good with test taking. I must pass this and I pray that I pass it so that I'm a certified teacher for the 2016-2017 school year.

    does the ec-6 generalist ask about a lot about the....

    biomes (tropical forest, savannas, ect)?

    Great plains, coastal plains ect?

    cell divisions for science, parts to an animal and plant DNA?


    Do I need to know all these specifically?
    let me know, asap if you can. I take the test in the morning.
