    Took all four sections today and received 4 scores of "receipt of completion." :(

    The 2015 REA FTCE GKT study guide's math portion was spot on.

    According to the website, it means they're revising/redeveloping the test.

    Yes, but I'm not sure how helpful it is without knowing if I passed or not. The texts weren't in any way difficult (one was really bizarre). Most questions asked to synthesize information and restate it into different words, as well as make assumptions about the authors and their intents.

    Was it anything about weather phenomena, do you recall any other words in order to look up that passage

    I can neither confirm nor deny passages on weather phenomena, however, I have tried looking up the weird passage because I'm interested in where the heck they pulled it from and who wrote it, and I have not been able to find it.

    (Deftly handled, marike.)

    GK is a basic-skills test. Passages in basic-skills reading tests are very often about content that test takers aren't expected to know; the point is to see what the test taker can get out of the passage anyway.

    Elk, let me recommend LearningExpress's workbook Reading Comprehension Success in 20 Minutes a Day.

    [QUOTE="ZLena27
    ZLena, TG has been recommending READING COMPREHENSION in 20 MINUTES A DAY. People who are avid readers would think that they would never have trouble passing a reading test, but I was wrong. The FTCE GK reading test is a graduate-level exam with HIGHLY complex sentence structures, and DENSE, difficult-to-understand research material, written, in my opinion, for doctorate-level students and professors.
    VERY inappropriate, I think, for a "BASIC SKILLS" test!

    There was a high school teacher ON THIS SITE, who had been teaching English language arts, reading comprehension, and literature for over ten years who FLUNKED THE TEST! She couldn't believe it! She teaches this stuff, and tests students for it, but when she took the test herself, she didn't pass, and she became suspicious. She suggested that the tests are written so that you don't pass--apparently an attempt to make more $MONEY$ for the test companies.

    Good luck, and let us know when you pass.

    I just took the GK on the 13th. There is a score delay -.- how many people this affects is unimaginable. I already assumed that I need to retake at least reading. So I went ahead and signed up for it again.

    Hello everyone!

    I am looking for any suggestions/tips on what to use to help prepare for the GK test. I have already passes the SAE Pre-K-3 and my next hurdle is the GK test. I'm thinking that I may start with the math subtest, because I know for a fact that I am weak in that area.

    Any tips from those that have successfully passed the GK would be greatly appreciated!

    Does the SAE Pre-K-3 test include math? If so, look for overlap between its coverage and the GK test. (In general, the various states' multiple subject tests cover math more in depth than do the basic skills tests.) If not, it's back to school season so Costco is carrying one of my favorite resources from DK: Help Your Kids With Math.

    Yes, the Pre K-3 did have a math portion your suggestion is great, I will compare the math on Pre K-3 to the GK one and take it from there and check out the book your suggested as well. Thank you!

    There tends to be overlap between basic-skills test math and elementary ed math. In honor of back-to-school season Costco is selling the DK book Help Your Kids With Math, at least where I am. It should help with both.
