    I am preparing now to take the FTCE English 6-12 subject area exam. I am currently using some materials from ABCTE. I am so nervous preparing for this. If I am unable to pass this exam, I will lose my certification in June. I really do not know what to study because there are no books that are aligned with the exam. It is extremely frustrating. Has anyone taken and passed this exam? If so, what materials did you use to do so? I am literally super stressed about this

    I actually purchased a study guide from a doctor of education who takes the exams and creates study guides based on the material that is being assessed. I don't want to post her publication on here. I can email you some of it if you leave your email below. Her book was invaluable for much of the material on the exam

    krose1011 okay, thank you.
    Let's see if this will work.
    Please don't use any spaces between the names there, and use the appropriate "at" symbol, and a period for dot.

    Thank you so much
    Have a great day

    Yes, Bryant, Krose has used it and said it helped her pass the test. She says she purchased this study guide from a 'doctor of education' who takes the exams and then creates study guides based on the material that is being assessed. That sounds like a winner to me!
    Good luck.

    Okay, I just took the English 6-12 test on 6/23/17 and I passed the Multiple Choice and I am waiting for the essay portion. However, I believe I did well. For the essay, google competency/skill #7 under FTCE English 6-12. They have an excellent short guide on how to write an essay in one hour with very useful tips. I highly recommend it. Make sure you choose the write prompt you feel comfortable elaborating on in a literary manner. I must tell you that the Mometrix English 6-12 guide for this test was useless. What is on the test is not covered in this study guide. Do not waste your time or money with it. Instead, like many others have posted, pro-profs dot com for English 6-12 is about the closest I found to what the test. It has similar questions as the test. Make sure you are understand teaching strategies for reading, writing and English. Reading Rockets dot com is excellent for a basic overview of reading strategies. Having said that, many of the questions are common sense. Make sure you READ the questions over, make a choice and mark those questions you are unsure of so that you can review later. While they ask questions about literature, they are very few and the majority deals with contemporary literature. They may ask about Russian authors so study the well know ones. Google Literary Periods and print out a basic over view of the 8 periods (Use a mnemonic device to remember them). I found a PDF with names and basic authors of each period. The grammar questions I had were basic things any English teacher or writer should now. Make sure you can identify Subordinate clauses and ellipsis. Indeed, this test has only 80 questions so you can calculate how many you can miss and still pass. The main thing to do is relax. If you know your craft...you got this. I was pretty nervous reading some post on this site until I found one that was positive about what can be done. No need to take the MC section more than once. If any thing you may have to redo the essay portion, if you are not comfortable with writing. However, if you use the competency #7 I mentioned and follow their model, I believe you should pass the essay as well. Remember, Stay Calm...Test on!!!

    I would recommend you buy a copy, since this is something you have to pay for. I am sure the author put a lot of work into the guide and deserves payment if you use it.

    I used it and passed my test. Its a PDF that you purchase. That's helpful because I could always have it with me, on my tablet, phone, pc, etc. However, there was a lot that was not in this guide. A lot of info I knew because I have taken and passed the K-6 exam, the LA & Reading section has some overlap with this exam. I also found a lot of typos, which drove me crazy since the guide is not cheap!

    You can probably buy it from the Director of Education that krose1011 mentioned. She probably has the contact info so you could buy it directly from that person.

    I just took the Eng 6-12 on Wednesday Aug 2 and I passed. This was my second attempt. After scouring these forums I looked into NavaED. I purchased their study guide. I also follows their FB page as they have a lot of great free videos and resources. Then I found an awesome group on FB where everyone is sharing great tips and resources for all the different exams. I also bought the Learning Liaisons First Attempt Success course and also studied Bloom's Taxonomy via YouTube videos. The NavaED study guide is THE BEST study guide for this test and the practice tests come very close to the real exam. I've used a lot of other study guides before and threw them out once I bought from NavaED. The test is not so much about content but moreso about strategy & performance. Thanks to Learning Liaisons I was able to practice the right strategy and pass the multiple choice. I'm still waiting on my essay results but I feel very confident. Best wishes to everyone. These tests can be conquered with the right strategy and mindset.

    For the essay portion, I paid for a one hour one on one session (online) with NavaED. It was very helpful and worth the money. I've heard a lot of people say they passed the essay through their help.

    Be sure to ANALYZE the question; read it twice; break it down to make sure you really understand what the question is asking you. The test presents scenario based questions. Get the study guide and you will be fine
