    I am going through certification in Texas and I have taken the Social Studies 4-8 Excet Exam twice. The first time I missed it by 4 points. The second time I missed it by 19 points. I have downloaded the preparation material online and studied different Social Studies TAKS books to help me with the test. But, I still keep coming up short. Is there anyone out there with some advice or material on how I can pass this test? I have missed 2 jobs this year because of this test and I am really becoming discouraged. :| Thank you!!!!

    Let me welcome you to the Single Subject Tests subforum; you may find some help here. Don't restrict your search to your own test or even your own state's tests; the overarching concerns of history aren't all that different from state to state.

    Ok...this is how i passed the CA Social Science Exam.

    You need:

    -U.S. History for dummies
    -World History for dummies
    -High School World History Text
    -Poli sci 100 txt
    -Economic notes from college

    I studying every night for about 3 months...I read every book at least twice.

    This worked for me and i passed every test the first time around

    good luck

    Consider this resource, too, Ugene: http://www.digitalhistory.uh.edu/. In addition, the Web site for your state's organization of social science teachers might have some good insights, as might preparation materials for AP or GRE history exams.

    PaperbackWriter! Good to see you in these parts again!
