CSET Multiple Subjects Study Guides
Alrighty folks, it has been a while since I've done an original post. One of the main reasons why I was absent the majority of February and March was that I was preparing for my CSET exam. For those that don't know, the CSET is the California Subject Examinations for Teachers.
Since I want to get my credential for special ed in elementary school, I had to take the multiple subjects test. This exam consists of three subtests with seven different subjects: Reading/Language Arts, History, Math, Science, Physical Education, Human Development, and Visual Arts. This is perhaps one of the hardest tests that a person has to take in order to receive an education degree.
I was dreading it. Not only was it more expensive, but I was terrified in taking all the subjects. It didn't help that I signed up to take all three subtests in one taking (there's the option to take them separately). Why did I do that? Well, I thought I could have everything set for the fall semester's deadline.
In order to get myself prepared for this examination, I turned to my local library. Luckily, my library system had a few CSET study guides.
The first one I had my hands on was McGraw-Hill's CSET Multiple Subjects.
The next one I used was CliffsNotes CSET Multiple Subjects
With all that being said... I took my test. I now have to wait a few more weeks to receive my test results. I try not to think about it much because I become anxious.
I would like to tell you guys that I did great and it was a breeze but then I'll be lying. The test was gruesome. I even had a small panic attack.
I have to keep reminding myself that I did my best. I just hope the test results are not as horrific as I think they are.
Well, let's see if I was able to overcome one of the hard steps in becoming a teacher. Until next time!
