    Today I attempted to take the Middle Grades English 5–9 - Multiple-Choice Section for the third time and failed. I passed the written section on the first attempt, but am currently unable to pass this portion of the test. My main problem is I don;t know what to study. I have purchased every study guide I can find and know the inside and out. Please, please, please someone help.

    Did you also take the Essay? I cannot seem to pass the essay. I have until June 30 or I will lose my teaching certificate/job. I have passed 7 other tests. Just not the essay.

    I took it about 10 days ago and did not pass the MC section, I don't know about the essay yet. I am very frustrated and I don't know how else to study for this test. I was thinking about buying some of the books listed in the study guide or searching the internet. I already passed the GK, Professional Dev. and Spanish subject area test; I wanted to add the LA test to my certification. I have only taken it once, but I am hopeful I will pass it the second time if I can find studying materials.

    Please let me know if you find any study material. Everything is outdated. Also, what did you use to study for the professional test? I have taken that one multiple times.

    Hi: I used a website that helped me. It's called think time and the website is thinktimeincdotcom You need to buy the tests and are only available for a certain amount of time. I felt their tests were pretty accurate. I only took this test once about 2 years ago and passed it the first time. My first language is Spanish and I passed it so you shouldn't be afraid. I think I also bought a textbook, one of those FTCE textbooks. I hope this helps.

    Taking the FTCE Middle Grades English 5-9 Multiple Choice test is going to require knowledge in how you would approach teaching this subject to ESOL and ESE students. It will give scenarios more often than it will ask about the items found in any of the study guides out there. It will ask about strategies used. I passed this section, but I am certified/endorsed in ESE and ESOL. You should know concepts, of course. There will be some questions. Quizlet has flash cards online. As for the essay, I can't paste the link, but the doc is called, "Are You surprised-Wikispaces". It has so much good information on how to use critical analysis, as well as the terminology necessary.

    I am now studying for the MC potion to retake it Aug 12. I made the awful mistake of using the memotrix study booklet and 240tutoring the first time around. It was completely irrelevant. I just found studydotcom with chapters on what seems to be all the competencies covered on the MC section. Has anyone tried this and feel it is a useful resource? Is there any other study hack you've found to be helpful? I can't afford to fail this a second time and my salary is depending on it as well.

    Hi Calley! I am glad I came across your post as I was interested in purchasing the 240tutoring guide for the English 5-9 test. Have you found any relevant material? Also, since you have taken the test any insight on the material on the test? Can I e-mail you?

    I just found out my score was 196 on the test, so frustrating. That's one to two questions missed from a passing score. Have you found study material that's scenario based? Or has the terminology for strategies?
