Has anyone out there taken this exam? It's required in most places in the U.S. to get a Secondary Math Teaching License/Credential. I'm taking it in June. Any advice? Was it hard? Easy? What should I study?
This exam basically tests your knowledge of high school math - algebra, geometry, trig, pre-calc, basic calc, probability, etc. Nothing that a physics major hasn't seen before, although how many of us have used geometry since high school.
