Has anyone taken the CSET Health Science Exam?

So...what have you found out about single subject health science? I'm
thinking of trying it also.

i'm taking this COLD in march. i pretty much know that even if i do study from a few health science books, i will fail because i have no idea of what kind of questions they will ask (the 10 sample ones on the webpage were pretty easy). i know that the last time u can take the ssat health science is in may. afterwards, cset plans to take over and make the test much more difficult and also make it have 3 subtests instead of 1 with just 100 questions. from what i hear, the health science test is the easiest test. just wondering. are u taking the ssat for a special ed credential? that's what i'm doing because i'm pretty sure soon that nclb will make all teachers regardless of what their credential is, take the multiple subjects.
Thank You for your prompt reply. Yes, I am looking to a special education credential. True, there are only two times this test will be offered:
March and May. There are different prep classes here and there. You need to go to Google click on: CSET-single subject health science and you will
more than likely find some information. ASAP Program, Riverside County Office
Of Education @ P.O.Box 868, Riverside, CA 92502-0868 offers a single subject Health Science study aide for $15.00 It might be worth the
investment! Let me know if you come up with some journals, books or anything that may assist.
hi. i went to google and did a search on what you said, and on the order form, they didnt list the health science study guide only other ssat test prep guides and cset guides. there was no phone number listed either =( so far, ive collected for this test a few textbooks from the ssat health science reference (each text book is day and night though) an dthat cal solutions thing where you download a 125 page study guide which is a rip off and doesnt prepare u for this test.
i just found this on google http://www.cccoe.k12.ca.us/supe/hr/CSET_Test_Prep_Brochure.pdf. it seems pretty good because i cant find a health science prep class anywhere!! it seems like the only prep classes offered in southern calif are for stuff in multiple subjects. i think this place is in northern california though and im not sure if i could afford to fly or dirve up there for a 6 hour study day lol. well i may have too actually lol.
hanks again for being so diligent about checking your posts! I agree with
you...it would be a bit of a stretch to commune to N. California...Hmmmm....
maybe if you call the Riverside County Office Of Education and when you
get the receptionist, ask to speak to the individual who is in charge of the
RIMS program. I know LACOE has alot going on as far as prep courses. Don't
give up!!!! Keep knockin' on those doors....Let me knnow if you get any insights!!! Call the CSET folks and ask them what test study materials they recommend. Call the library and bookstores. Check out the multiple subject
study books (such as Barron's and Bobrow) and just study the health Science
portion. Go to the official NES site and select health science. After you've
downloaded the material read the preliminary pages which state the subject matter you will be expected to know....Good Luck!!!
If I hear of anything else, I'll be sure and let you know!
