    Just wanted to update and say that I passed the test on my first try. Phew. I'm a certified teacher who has been taking time off with my kids. My certifications were about to lapse and I took this to finish up my requirements since I was basically out of time due to no fault but my own. I took this five years ago upon moving toflorida and this version was harder. Some things I thought were obscure and I remember the previous test having much more ww1 to present day us history than the newer version. I went through the study guide and answered questions using the internet ad then used both the REA and xam as supplemental. Studied for a week. It was definitely difficult and I noticed the maximum pass score has gone up by 5 percent. But, it's over and I'm happy to be done with it! Definitely will make sure to get all my continuing ed credits before my next cert period ends :)

    Congratulations, kmoflorida!

    As to the difference in emphases that you noticed, FTCE Social Science 6 to 12 almost certainly exists in more than one edition that's in use right now - so, had you had to take the test again, you could expect to see a different edition that differs a bit from the one you took in what it emphasizes.

    Can you please please please tell me exactly what you used as a study guide? I have purchased the FTCE study guide, but did not pass the exam because none of the questions were the same. I am really desperate to find an effective guide so that I can do well on this exam. Please help.

    Congrats! I am scheduled to take the exam in about two weeks and I am worried/nervous. My undergrad is in political science/american government (2006 grad) so the history (especially world) is my biggest concern. I am using the XAM study guided and some general history books. Did you have alot of prehistoric culture/society questions (if you recall)? :unsure:

    I normally test well and I am trying to study about 4-5 hours a day, hopefully all will go well. Passed GKT on the first try so fingers crossed for this test. Any additional advice? Thanks and congrats again!
