    Hi! I'm a newbie to the board and heading for TX!!! *muy excited* Anyway, I will be taking the Texes Math 4-8 and 8-12...crazy I know, but I am trying to get a feel for the test..if I pass fine if I don't, I'll study harder. But my question(s) are as follows:

    1. Is the NEW test the Praxis (I and II)?
    2. What areas should I focus on in each grade level?
    3. I utilized the resources on the Texes for studying, are there other useful study guides available?
    4. Did anyone here take the Math test (any) in February?
    What was it like? Was it difficult?
    5. Are there constructed response questions?
    6. Should I study calculus and precalculus heavily?
    7. Any other tips?

    Thanks,
    ~What

    Figure out what it is that you're supposed to know, then learn or brush up on it using the resources suggested by the likes of Malcolm and innovationguy and others who Clearly Know Whereof They Speak when it comes to math.

    And don't be shy about asking questions here, including questions about math itself. Someone's bound to have an answer.
