As I read it, I get more and more excited about the principalship! Your book has been a true inspiration for me and I just wanted to let you thank you for sharing it with others, especially those of us who are just starting the educational leadership path!!!"

First, let me state that I did pass my TExES principal exam.

But I don't think it was due to this book. I bought this book because (1) there is very few principal TExES review material and didn't have much to choose from anyway, (2) felt like I needed some kind of review, and (3) this book had good reviews on Amazon.

I'm writing this review in 2009, and I bought this book in 2009. It's very outdated for this year. It still talks about the TAAS test (we have long switched over to the TAKS test now). It spends 99% of the book going over the competencies and what they mean...then the author advises that the best way to study is to read the competencies over and over again. While the author does a good job discussing each competency in detail, I didn't find this to be helpful to study for the test when what I really wanted was a chance to apply it and practice. It has some "practice questions" at the end that are no where near the format on what is presented on the TExES. Maybe in the past the test was in a different kind of format?

My advice is not to waste time with an outdated book that doesn't really give you practice. I found the actual released TExES practice principal manual (it's free- google it) to be the most helpful. The manual comes from the test-makers themselves and it has all the competencies that you can read over and over as well as actual real practice questions (about 40 of them) at the end with the answers. It's up to date and it's what I studied.

I read through parts of this book. There is lots of valuable info...but in my opinion, there is almost TOO much info to go through. My advice is to take your TExES principal exam with Highland Park as your ideal school and go from there. Remember, if possible, to start a committee for everything and always involve as many people as possible in the decision making and you will pass.

In Colorado we have the PLACE Exam for Principal licensing. However there are no official study guides for the test. I purchased this book after failing the PLACE and found that the TExES Domains are almost identical to the PLACE. Dr. Wilmore also gave great test taking strategies that were extremely helpful. I used these strategies on the provided practice test, and two PLACE Practice test (one for Principal and one for Superintendent) and scored a passing grade. Then I applied them to the actual PLACE Exam and passed!

The information was valuable, but the practice test was way too easy. The real test is much harder.
