War with the CSET

So the CSET, also know as the California Subject Examination for Teachers, is evil.  Got my results Monday, definitely didn’t pass, but I am taking the single subject math test, and I haven’t taken a math course in like 6 years, so I can’t be that mad at myself.  So, I am teaching myself how to study again and preparing myself for the mentally tasking 5 hour rematch with the CSET on May 8th.  So to all those perspective Corps Members out there, you are forewarned, getting the acceptance letter is just the start, passing the credentialing exams, is the actual most difficult barrier to entry into TFA.

Until next time…

    um, i feel EXACTLY the same way. i haven’t had a math class in 3 years. i took the AEPA (arizona) exam in secondary math last month . . . and i’ll find out my score at the end of this month. i’m not even counting on having passed it, so i just signed up to take the praxis next week.

    good luck studying! i definitely feel your pain.
