Book Description

Oct. 1 2010 Barron's Texes
This updated manual prepares prospective elementary and secondary school teachers in Texas for the TExES PPR certification exam. An introduction and explanation of teacher certification in Texas is followed by detailed advice on test-taking strategies and a self-assessment guide. Chapters that follow cover the Standards, Knowledge, and Skills Components of the TExES Professional Practices and Responsibilities Exam. A total of eight diagnostic and practice tests are presented for Grades EC-6, Grades 4-8, and Grades 8-12. These tests also apply for the for Grades EC-12 test. The tests are followed by scoring guides and a self-analysis framework. Explanations are given as to why one answer is the best among the choices and other responses are not. The authors also suggest sources for additional test-preparation help, including a glossary, web sites, and printed resources.

1.0 out of 5 stars Study smart, not hard! June 14 2014

I ended up using REA's prep book. The problem with Barron's is it doesn't give you the information you need to study. It just tells you what you need to study, so I spent a week looking up all the research materials I needed and began to study. REA's book had all the research I had just spend 3 days gathering all together. Plus it had 2 practice tests that were much harder than the actual test. I scored a 278/300 = 93%. Don't bother with this book get REA's by Beatrice Mendez Newman, Ph.D. ISBN-10: 0-7386-1142-5; ISBN-13: 978-0-7386-1142-6

1.0 out of 5 stars Not conducive to real study April 21 2013
By Texas Teacher - Published on Amazon.com
I am taking the EC-12 PPR through an alternative certification program (ie no college courses on education).

First, the book is nearly unreadable for teachers taking the PPR for ec-12. The book breaks each competency into three bulky sections based on age (EC-6, 4-8, 8-12) rather than have all of the information for each competency in one section, separated by small headings. Such a small change would increase comprehension and readability for those people taking the test on the entire age spectrum.

Secondly, the information is very brief. It may be fine for teachers with an education degree whomayjust need to jog their memories, but for teachers who have gone through analternative certification program, this is not enough information. This brief bit of information is made worse by the fact that the theoriesofeducation get split amongst the age groups.

This is not a good review tool, and I'm just glad that I borrowed it from my local library.
