About the eBook

Gain confidence, lower stress, and raise your TExES exam scores!

Testing for certification can be a stressful experience. State exams are rigorous and cover numerous domains and competencies. Test scores can impact both special education certification and teacher preparation programs. You may find there is simply too much material to study, or that test-prep books hammer you with too many random questions. 

Understanding what will be on the test and why is a key to success. With artful prose, TExES test prep veteran Elaine Wilmore breaks down the EC-12 and Supplemental special education test so you can feel calm and confident on test day. Built on her successful test-prep training seminars, she navigates each special education domain and competency and covers

• Philosophies behind the test questions
• Teaching stories that improve answer recall
• Tips for analyzing test questions
• Ways to use key words and concepts to improve test results
• Hints for managing time while testing
• Tips for before, during, and after the exam
• Techniques for in-state and out-of-state test takers

With its empowering approach, this book shows you how to think like the test was developed and improve your test results.
