    Also, the Cliff's Notes for the Multiple Subject CSET has great test-taking recommendations. I really wish they would make a Cliff's Notes for the individual CSET Single Subject tests. That would be much better than having to piecemeal the info altogether. Oh well.

    If there were a Cliff's for CSET English, it would cost more than you want to pay, and then you'd be left with a very expensive doorstop. Doing it piecemeal is a nuisance, yes, but you can pick and choose the bits that work for YOU and that you can use in your classes later.

    You are absolutely correct, TeacherGroupie, about the CSET English book potentially being expensive... and lord knows none of us need to spend any more money than we already have to on these ridiculous tests! :)

    Barnes & Noble and Borders can be surprisingly rich in good resources - in fact, there's a book in the Complete Idiot's series that's on American literature and quite good, despite the title. AP prep guides can also be helpful.

    And Amozon.com has an excellent source of USED books. Even though you have to pay shipping, most of the used books only cost a couple dollars anyway. I bought all my CSET test prep stuff from Amazon's used section.

    Powell's (http:www.powells.com), a Portland landmark, is also outstanding for used books.

    I am new to this website. My name is Doveal and I will be taking subtests II and IV on March 18, 2006. This will be my second attempt. Subtest II is my biggest concern so if you could please email me your study material for Subtest II to Doveal@hotmail.com I would greatly appreciate it. If anyone else has any helpful information on studying for Subtest II besides the study guide from the cset website please email me with whatever help you can give. Thank you.

    since i am a new member I am not being allowed to send personal messages yet. So I will have to work around the system because I take subtest II and IV next saturday, so you can email me by using my first name which is Doveal, followed by the at symbol which is @ and I am a member of hotmail.com. That would be doveal at hotmail dot com. We are all teachers so we can figure out how this would look as a web address. Thank you for your help.

    By "the study guide from the cset website", do you mean just the sample questions? If so, check out the Subject Matter Requirements/Content Specifications document plus the individual subtest descriptions, which are full of terminology you can look up on Answers.com or Google for more information. And if those sources don't make sense on a given topic, you can certainly ask questions here. (Of course, we're not discussing details of specific questions that appear on the actual CSET: see the warnings at the top of this page. But it's perfectly possible to discuss the broad issues that the questions touch upon.)
