    I took and passed all of the 3 subtests in one try. I took each subtest at a time, but thats not the point. I am business major and my Math is not that great but I paid to take some lessons and these lessons are great! I paid $100 for each one and I passed without not much of a studying except the lessons.

    Anyone interested?

    It is a a very nice summary collection of formulas and solutions to thesample questions along with similar questions to the actual test. I tried to study from books before but nothing helped me as much as this package did.

    summary

    They are my own notes of the lessons I took. It is a summary with many questions and solutions both test and constrcuted including the sample test questions from the website.

    Be careful about reselling materials from classes: that tends to represent how some people make their living.

    Where did you get the lessons from? That is, who did you pay? How much are you selling the notes for?

    Welcome to A to Z, albertiak. There's quite a bit of information here - you can use the forum search tool at the upper right of this page to search for "CSET math", and then ignore all the posts that aren't in this Single Subject Tests subforum.

    Have you taken any of the subtests of CSET Math before, or are you preparing for the first time?

    I am going to take the math 2 cset in jan 2008. Any last minute ideas/suggestions? Totally nervous about the test.

    Check out the previous posts on CSET math. Everything is covered there.

    IMHO subtest II is the easiest of the three. If you have the subject matter down, it should be a snap.

    Be sure you have an approved graphing calculator. If it is not on the list, you will not have one to use on test day. Be sure you know how to set it to whatever modes (e.g. degree v. radian) you want it in after the proctors reset it, and they will. Make sure you know how to use it to do linear regression, chi-square and any other number crunching that may come up in the probability and statistics part of the subtest. You really don't need it for the rest of the test.

    Don't forget that you have to print out your ticket from the e-mail. They don't mail them out anymore unless you request them.

    Look at the test guide on the official CSET site, and make sure you know the things mentioned. Maybe "back in the day" when Malcolm took the test, Test 2 was a snap, and test 1 was difficult, but now I think the reverse is true.

    For geometry, know rotations, reflections, and dilutions; for statistics, in addition to Malcolm's recommendations, know how to read and use a Z table. Remember the part about adding 50% for amounts on the right end.

    Read the math posts in the Single Subject Tests stickies and the archives. You can click on Malcolm's, Jay's, or my name and "jump" to our old CSET Math posts that way.

    Happy studying--hope you pass. What credential program will you attend?

    It might be less true of CSET Math than of the other CSETs, but there's probably not going to be unanimity as to which subtest is the hardest, since different people do come in with different backgrounds.

    xyz, please breathe... and please plan on taking at least one break during your testing time, especially if you start feeling unduly stressed.

    Not a terribly big deal for somebody in the know, but lest it produce even a smidgen of bewilderment, the term being referred to above was: dilations!

    Yes, and its been so long since I took it that I forgot that Subtest III was the easiest for me...

    Dilutions would be what a number of us may experience tomorrow night, no? (Of course, dilations would also be possible, depending on just what extracurricular substances are involved... but not, of course, in a mathematical sense.)

    Ha, ha. Dilutions instead of dilations. I'm enrolled in a 3-semester / 8 course program in Process Technology at the community college. One of the courses just completed had a Chemistry pre-req and was a chemistry lab class tailored to the oil refining / chemical processing industries that involved, among other things, serial dilutions. I guess that was still on the brain. Excellent catch. I could imagine someone going nuts trying to figure out what geometry dilutions are and getting worried about it.

    Speaking of worry--here's another tip, mentioned many times before. Even if you don't know a Constructed Response answer, put down as much related stuff as you can think of. The partial credit you get may be enough to save your sorry _ _ _-- I mean save yourself. And, you only essentially need a D or about 60 % to pass. So, really feel like a failure if you fail. Ha, ha. Kidding, of course. I'm in a bit of a mood tonight. I mean, don't worry too, too much. You don't need to be an expert.

    Happy New Year in advance. Will your dilutions dilate your pupils? If so, that will be an eye-opening New Year. (The sign of a good pun is the loudness of the groan.)
