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?

Praxis II Math Teachers Exam

Hi,

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. I pulled out the Schaums books, and I also bought 150 Praxis problems for twenty bucks from www.praxisiimath.com[/URL] . With a little study, you should ace this test.
