    I'm studying for the generalist 4-8...and I'm wondering is the math on the actual test harder or easier than the prep material. :confused:
    I swear, I didn't see those kind of math problems until High School or college (of course it's been awhile).

    I just took and passed the 4-8 Gen, 265. To give you some background on my complete math ignorance, I had to take College Math 3 times to pass it - and I only passed it then because it was summer school and the Prof basically GAVE me a D. I am completely Math illiterate, so I was stressing over the math section of the test.

    Furthermore, I did not prepare for the test AT ALL - no reviewing, no studying NOTHING. And I passed - with a 265. There was not much math at all, maybe 10 questions at the most. I have seen some of the questions on the Study Guide and they appear to be much harder than the actual test. Dont sweat it - either you know it or you dont, no amount of studying or stressing over the practice questions will help.

    Thanks kalli007--I was stressing!!! I had just checked to see if I could reschedule or cancel my test and of course it's too late. I'm going to suck it up and just take it and pray for the best.

    tb71, were you looking at the official online TExES materials or at some publisher's prep book?

    Did you do the computer based test or the paper one?

    teacher groupie--Yes I was using Texes prep material.

    Frogger--I'm scheduled to take the computer based on the 18th--tomorrow!

    I really considered changing my test date, but I was too late to reschedule--so I'm going to suck it up and take it anyway.
