    I took CSET Multiple Subject Subtest III twice scoring 214 and 219. I failed with just few points away. The multiple choice indices for P.E., Human Development, and Visual and Performance Arts are ++, +++, ++ respectively. I used Cliff Notes to prepare for the test. Can anyone recommend resources(books/online) to study for subtest III? Thanks in advance!

    How did you do on your constructed responses, 2bteacher?

    Sorry for the late reply, @TeacherGroupie. I scored +++ in constructed responses. I need more practice in PE and Visual and Performance Arts. Any recommendations/resources for taking subtest III?

    +++ is fairly strong, though that still leaves room for improvement, as does the +++ in multiple choice human development. What about p, k, s, checkmark on your constructed responses?

    (One passes or doesn't pass the whole subtest: if you pulled either multiple choice human development or constructed response up to ++++ without any of your other scores going either up or down, you'd almost certainly pass.)

    It sounds like you need to master terminology. You want to get to where a scenario with key details makes you think of the technical terms that describe it, and the technical terms make you visualize scenarios. If you can actually use your copy of Cliffs (and if you find yourself hating to open it, that's not necessarily shame to you: there really is no such thing as the one right resource for everybody), mine it for terminology to look up online. Wikipedia is a great resource for test takers: when you find a technical term of whose meaning you're unsure, use Wikipedia to get a quick grip on it. Then challenge yourself to write a sentence with that technical term about something you've done or seen or heard in everyday life that's an example.

    @TeacherGroupie, though I remember the terminology, I lack the application part. Getting started to mine the book thoroughly and connect the terminology with real life situations.
    I scored k,s in Visual and Performance Arts constructed response.

    @TeacherGroupie, thank you for all the help!
