    I am considering taking the K-12 ESE test. I am in my final internship and have taken the other required tests, however it seems that it will make me that much more marketable if I have this ESE cert. I have been encouraged to take it by the principal though she also says she does not have a crystal ball, but this class size ammendment is certainly helping.
    Anyways I ordered the pdf study guide from the DOE site, it is only a sample test of 30 questions. Which I got 6 out of 30 wrong.
    What study guides are out there.
    I must say these tests are $$$$$ and to even shell out another $30ish for another study guide is a lot for a poor intern! :)


    And if you did take it, your thoughts on it??? and how you studied for it?

    There is a free online study module for that exam here:
    http://www.pda-ese.org/pilot/register.aspx

    Just note that if you do become an ESE teacher in Florida there is much more to know then what that test tests you on. The test consists of some strategies and you need to know all of the basic laws. What the test does not cover is how to write ieps, set goals, etc. Good luck!

    I am currently studying for this exam. Thank you for the link. That is an excellent review. I noticed that the foundations study module won't let me access the other sections like assessment because they are for credit courses.

    If anyone has any additional links or tips, I'd love for you to share them. If you've passed please let us know. :)

    Welcome to A to Z, OriginalDebbie. As long as you're not posting actual specific test questions (doing so can get you into all manner of trouble with the test company), you're more than welcome to ask questions. What's troubling you?

    Renison, I am so sad that you did not pass the test, I have taken it a couple of times and each time i scored 198 and then 196. You are absolutely right the book does NOT help ME at all.

    Yes, I passed it the first time! I thought I failed it but I didn't! I used the cliffnotes ftce exceptional student study guide;however, I do not think the test was anything like the book. It is all scenarios. It asked a few questions about syntax and semantics.
