I have both the Kaplan and Cliff notes books. I created online flash cards to help me with the Subtest I and III. I did charts showing milestones of reading, p.e., art, and language acquisition. I have been studying harder than I have ever studied before. Yet, on the practice test that I take in the books, I am barely passing Subtest I and I am like 1 percent close to passing Subtest III. How is this test so incredibly hard?!? :unsure: My CSET test I and III is in two weeks and I am so nervous about it. If I don't pass this test, and I get one shot, I will not be able to get into the credential program that I need to become a special education teacher until NEXT YEAR. What is your advice on psyching out. Is there any thing more that I can do? Also, for those who have passed the CSET, are the Kaplan and Cliff Notes tests harder than the actual test? I noticed that with the CBEST.
