    Congrats! Do you have any advice on the science portion for the MS part? I struggle with the constructed response. For instance I hear you need to use certain vocabulary. Is there a site or book to help?Thanks

    Chadni27, am I correct in inferring that you've taken Subtest II at least once? If so, what diagnostics are you seeing on your score report(s), and how close are you coming to a passing score?

    You came fairly close to passing: good! How did you do in math?

    math was good I feel better than science was. However, have the new standards made the science portion completely different? Is there any site we can use? I almost feel as though the cliff notes book isn't as updates to these new science standards. Thanks

    Completely different? No. But one of the aims of the Next Generation Science Standards is to get people thinking in terms of how various systems connect and affect each other. For instance, the rock cycle and the water cycle look and operate differently in most ways, but erosion/weathering and runoff are where they meet. And an astonishing range of biological processes can best be explained in terms of physics and/or chemistry.

    Hi Sabrina,

    It's great that you passed your exams. May I ask how was subtest 3? I've been doing a lot of review but I'm nervous about it and my retake on subtest 2. Any words of encouragement? I'm about to graduate with my B.A and I really desire to pass but its been frustrating.

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm taking the CSET subtest 3 and retake on subtest 2. Can any of you guys describe if its easy or difficult? I've been doing my best with studying and just feeling discourage from the first try. Any words of encouragement?

    I just got back my results for subset 2. The math and science multiple choice weren’t hard for me but the written response can be tricky. I just got back my results and didn’t pass by 2 points. I’m tryong to get it re-evaluated but who knows probably have to take it again.

    I am retaking my Subtest 2 and I got only + in my constructed response. Overall I done okay in multiple choice. Perla I think I would be interested in the online tutor you referred to. Thanks for your advice.

    Hi Sabrina,
    Could you tell me more about this online class and how registration work? I just signed up for this class yesterday and now waiting for approval before making a payment? Do you know how long it typically takes for them to approve my registration and what happens next?

    Hi could I also get that tutors information please? I’m taking subtest 2 for the second time tomorrow, but I would like to use her to prep for all the subtests as I have missed passing subtest 1 and 3 by 4 points now. Thank you so much!

    Hello guys,
    It feels comforted knowing that i am not alone :fist: in this situation. Like many of you, I got +++ on both sections of the multiple choice and + on constructed reponse. For the constructed response, I usually get "k" for 3 boxes and a checkmark for one box. Overall scores typically is 218, 219.
    i have been attempting and failing subtest 2 seven times. Yes, it is correct. SEVEN times. I have been using Cliff notes, downloaded practice test from CTC website, in an online prep course from Teacherprep as well but no avail :cry::coldsweat:.
    i have come to a self-relization that if i do not CSET MS 2 after getting in touch with a tutor. I would let go... Anyway, i have been in able to get in touch with Linnea. Contact me so i can pass on her info. In the meantime, let's just keep trying guys..

    I know this is an old post, but I am wondering how many plus signs you got on the constructed responses to pass? Worried about my outcome over here!
