I seriously think the RICA is a straight ripoff! Even though this will only be my 2nd time taking it, I was sure that I passed it the first time. I just took it on Aug 8, 2018, and I'm not sure if I passed, so I'll just keep studying and seeking out information until I finally pass! California wondering why they don't have enough teachers?? It's because of too much testing, a lack of decent pay, and too many political issues involved. Why should I or anyone else need to take the RICA if I have a Masters in Special Education?? They really need to stop the money scam!! Anyway, does anybody have any tips that would help me pass? It was because of the advice of TeacherGroupie on this site that I passed one of my CSET's a few years back! So if any of you have any pointers, I'd appreciate! THANKS!!!
