    I have taken this test 4 times and I still can not pass it. Each time I take it my score goes up the highest I have gotten is 200. I took the exam today, but unfortunately I did not pass. I don't know my score yet, because I will not receive them until next Monday. Is there anyone who has taken this exam and passed. I'm looking for my preparation material. Only things I have been using is the Pearson practice exam and khan academy website. Any suggestions would be helpful please.

    Did you ever find any resources? I'm in the same boat.

    I'm going to take it for the first time next month. Has anyone found any good study resources? I have a BS in Math Education and have been teaching for 8yrs in California and am disappointed that I have to pass this test to teach in Indiana. The practice test is very challenging with many problems that take over 5-minutes to solve. How is someone supposed to finish this?

    Quick question. Does the on-screen scientific calculator have a factorial key?

    It does, but you have to play with the settings on the calculator to find it.

    As for study materials and length of test questions I still haven’t found success with this test and have been teaching math for nine years.

    You've been trying for years to pass? How does that work...emergency permit or something? I heard there is no scrap paper and you have to use whiteboard markers? Is that true? Is it a small whiteboard? I'm concerned about space to solve out some of these lengthy problems.

    Thanks! I recently found on the Pearson website a downloadable calculator and am using it to practice with.

    You can just type “!” after the number you want to factorialize and then hit Enter, I think. I remember having to use the on-screen calculator when I took the Praxis 5161 and was able to type out function commands. You can still click different options from the various menus, but I found it easier, personally, to type it out manually.

    They gave me actual paper at the test center where I took the Praxis with the on-screen calculator. However, when I took the CSETs — also administered by Pearson — I had to use a whiteboard marker with an 8.5x11 laminated piece of paper. I could be wrong on the dimensions, but that feels right.

    Good luck!

    I am licensed special ed servicing math classes from 7th through pre calc. Trying to add 5-12 to my license with the test in case I ever move. Have 5-9 but most schools want 5-12 I hear.

    No paper where I went. All dry erase spiral notebooks.

    OK, thanks. Would certainly prefer paper, but I guess a dry erase spiral notebook would allow reasonable space to solve larger problems (and not have to erase as much between sets of problems.
