A TExES Study Guide Unlike Any Other

If you'd like to get the TExES score you deserve, to quit worrying about whether your score on the TExES is "good enough," and to beat the test taking game, then this might be the most important message you read this year.

Our comprehensive study guide for the TExES is written by our TExES experts, who painstakingly researched the topics and the concepts that you need to know to do your best on the TExES. Our original research into the Texas Examinations of Educator Standards (TExES), offered by the Texas State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) and Educational Testing Service (ETS), reveals the specific content areas and the essential skills that are critical for you to know on the TExES. We've taken the information and developed a study guide that is guaranteed to help you be successful on the TExES.

Regardless of which TExES test you have to take- you have come to the right place. Here you will find everything you need to know in order to be successful and get your certification.

Now, we know you may be skeptical, so let us give you three good reasons we can back up what we claim:

The Three Reasons To Believe What We Say

The First Reason:

Our company's name is Mometrix Test Preparation, and we have a team of standardized test researchers who have worked on developing our study guide for the TExES. The standards for who gets to work on the team are very strict- we demand the best for our customers, and only those who met our exacting standards made the cut. The dedicated research staff have years of combined experience in mastering the content and skills necessary to succeed on the toughest exams.

The Second Reason:

Some academic studies have revealed that test takers do not really benefit from the traditional test preparation process. But we knew there had to be a solution- if test takers were not doing well on the TExES despite high intelligence, there had to be a set of secret keys to the test that would open the door of success for these test takers.

We believe we have succeeded in finding the secret keys of the exam. What we found was surprising, and in some cases ridiculously simple once explained to the average test taker.

We put the findings together in a thorough, concise study guide that we believe allows any test taker, at any skill level, to improve his or her results dramatically with a minimum of effort.

The Third Reason:

We created the product in part because we were frustrated by the options available to test takers who really wanted to do well on the TExES.

A common approach is to TEACH the material, instead of TEACHING THE TEST. That's not necessarily good enough for the TExES- you have to know how to apply the knowledge. Most test takers already have a general knowledge of the material that will be covered on the exam.

One reason some test takers do well on the day of the test is that they have made the critical connection between the material they learned and how to use the material to succeed on the TExES.

Our guide addresses the difference between merely knowing the material and knowing how to use the material to perform on test day.

You're going to save time, money, and aggravation. You'll learn to avoid the mistakes and the bad strategies that you've been vulnerable to. --Just for starters, here are some ways our product can help your score on the TExES...

The Exclusive Test Taking Techniques

  • Explains how the TExES time limits are the #1 enemy of most test takers, and what you can do about it- You avoid falling into the many "time traps" built into the test, giving you an immeasurable advantage over those who go into the test unaware
  • Shows you super speed methods to get through the questions you know with ease- Saving you time so you concentrate on the hardest questions without rushing
  • Get quick, customized help for the questions you have- just send us a quick email and we'll get back to you promptly with the answer.
  • Keys to questions that "give away" the wrong (or right) answers- You get credit for some of the questions without really even knowing anything about them
  • Details the EXACT STUDY PLAN for the TExES that we believe gives the most results in the least time- No matter if you're studying for a week or a month, you won't waste the precious study time you have on useless activities
  • Our researchers are more than just academic theoreticians who understand the technical nature of standardized tests, but are also experts on test taking itself- they reveal the exact skills and the information you'll need to perform under pressure during the test.
  • A systematic analysis and the best breakdown into "plain language" of how to deconstruct and master complex problems- You turn the problems that most of the test takers will stumble over to your advantage
  • Learn why, when, and how to guess to your advantage. Many test takers use exactly the wrong strategy, but you can avoid the pitfalls with the help of our standardized test experts
  • The secret keys that "gives away" the right answer a lot of the time- You know the special "flags" and the specific "giveaways" to look for
  • Includes instructions detailing the best way for you to get started with your preparation efforts so you can begin the path of improving your scores immediately
  • The most efficient and accurate method for picking the right answer- You won't be scratching your head trying to read the mind of the test question writer, but will instead know exactly what to look for to pick the best answer
  • Our quick problem solving method for difficult problems- You speed right through these notorious time-wasters
  • Courteous, unlimited customer service is 100% free- if you need the product emailed to a different address, lose the product, or have any other difficulty- the help you need is just a short email away and our representatives are active 7 days a week helping customers
  • The research of our team of test experts is 100% independent and original
  • Our exclusive "calibration strategy" to help you never go too fast OR too slow when answering even the toughest questions
  • The 5-step process we've developed, what we call the "phased" approach, concerning the use of the various study aids and practice tests
  • How the problem of procrastination can kill your chance of success, and the most important thing you can do about it
  • How to know when you've studied as much as you need to for the exam- and the reason why we think some people should spend LESS time studying for the test
  • The Top 20 things you should take care of within 24 hours of taking the test- use the list we provide as a checklist to make sure you've taken care of the "little things" in addition to studying hard
  • How to predict the right answer before you see the answer choices- and how to prevent the wrong answers from "polluting" your mind and tempting you into a trap designed by the test writers --
  • Why answers that "sound" correct are often the very ones that are wrong- and how to tell the difference between the right answer and the many clever-sounding traps set for you by the test writers

  • Do you know what a "hedge phrase" is? Learn why looking for the key "weasel words" in the question can help identify the correct answer
  • Why "new information" in the answer choices almost always means that the answer choice is wrong- and the way to avoid this trick planted by the clever test writers
  • Learn to avoid this time-draining mistake on the test - why the technical terms you don't know can be a major stumbling block and waste precious time, and the way that you can work around them
  • The secret to using the contextual clues in the questions and the answer choices to make important distinctions between the right and the wrong answer choices
  • The two situations where you should NOT check your answers thoroughly
  • How to avoid careless mistakes by using the quick "double check" system. It will more than pay for itself relative to the time it will take you
  • Test writers will often quote directly from the question in an answer- learn whether this is something you should trust or avoid
  • Why "extreme statements" in the answer choices are dead giveaways for wrong answers- find out how to detect the subtle differences between reasonable answers and the answers that are almost always wrong
  • Learn how to group your answer choices into "families" that often narrows down the pool of correct answers- this is a quick way to immediately eliminate one or two of the answer choices and increase your odds of getting the question right

Now, you're probably wondering how and why we can do all the things we claim.

Let us explain.

Before we go any further, let us clarify what TExES Secrets is not. It is not a stale rehash of all of the things you have already learned in the past.

TExES Secrets is our exclusive collection of the tips and the information that we have specially selected to give you the best results on the TExES for the least time spent studying. It's written in everyday language and is easy to use.

We cover the 5 essential skills necessary to do well on the TExES, plus a comprehensive review covering your specific TExES test.

Don't take our word for it. Listen to what our customers say about other Mometrix test preparation products.

I purchased the Secrets file, and I just wanted to let you know that I got a 99% on my test. I just want to thank you again, and hope you have continued success in your ventures. Sincerely, Paul L.

My name is Chris. I used the Secrets study guide for five days. The study guide made the test so easy to understand. Like you said this program is worth 100's of dollars. To me 1,000's!! THANKS, Chris G.

I just had to thank you guys for the test prep! I bought the guide as a last minute prep, I mean maybe 5 hours before the test. Like I said, I had ZERO preparation! I was nervous about the test let alone receiving the score I needed. I read the guide through only once before test time and needless to say, the only way I passed was thanks to your refresher!! Brian

Just dropping you a note to let you know that I am completely satisfied with the product. I had already taken the test once and landed in the 75 percentile of those taking it with me. I took the test a second time and used some of your tips and raised my score to the 97 percentile. Thanks for my much improved score. Denise W.

I heard about your website from a friend. I am enrolled in a review course, and in hindsight, I wish I wouldn't have taken my review course and instead spent a fraction of the money on your program. Thank you! Zac L.

You get at least 10 times your money's worth! --When you consider what's at stake with the exam, we believe the value of our study guide gives you at least ten times your money's worth.

Taking a generalist test might sound easy, but think about all of the things that go into it and it seems like too much. When you study, you can’t just concentrate on one area. You have to cover it all. You need to know language arts, math, science, fine arts, social studies and more. That’s a lot to know! This study guide can help with all that. It has all of the information you need broken down into neat sections. You can pace yourself and study just what you need to know since you know that it’s all in one location. Know this guide and the general test won’t seem so huge anymore. You will have the information you need to succeed. All you have to do is use this guide to its fullest extent.

DO NOT BUY this book. It is a piece of junk. In planning to study for the Generalist Test I went online & paid $53 with shipping. Boy was I ripped off. I get the book and follow the directions. They tell you to ready the whole book first. Wasted all ASIN:0738610518 TExES Generalist EC-6 (191) Book + Online (TExES Teacher Certification Test Prep) my time reading this thing. Thank goodness I took the online test posted in the back. I discovered what I was studying didn't seem to match up with the test. I began to panic now because I am less than 2 weeks away from taking the test. I thought maybe I missed something & decided to check out the videos. OMG, had I looked at them from the beginning, I would have known something was amiss. The 3 videos I looked at are merely content review material presented by what appears to be "teenagers." Yes, NOTHING against teenagers, but just how professional is this company? Are these homeschoolers or something?!?! I began to panic and research. I discovered TEA has a site with comments from others sharing their experience from taking the test. They steered me correctly. You'll want the REA book. Cost me $23. Yep, that's right. A mere $23 in comparison to the piece of junk I bought, as well as ALL the wasted time. The book by REA gives a study plan etc., gives fantastic information all clearly presented and concise. It's about 5 times the size of this Secrets Study Guide too! Oh, and don't know where the "secrets," are they are claiming. I am so so so sorry I fell for their advertising and what must be false reviews. I do not think this book has helped anyone to pass. In my opinion, it is a big rip off and someone should stop them from messing people up in such an important area of their lives. I am posting a link to the REA book.Read more ›

This is a great study guide and it has a lot of information in it to help any person pass the test. It has videos you can watch over certain subjects and really outlined well. At first, I was disappointed because I noticed within the book it did not have tests to preview from, but on the very back page of the book it gives you tests links to go to for a full-length test question. I am currently waiting on my Study Skills DVD and Mometrix 5-Star Highlighter to come in the mail to enhance my study experience and prepare me for the content test. I would recommend this study book to anyone who needs extra help in studying for the TExES Content test. Good Luck!

The study guide is in my hands most of the day (at home or on the road). It is packed full of information for the EC-6 test. I have purchased a few other study helps (flash cards & practice tests) in order to make sure that I have all that I need in different formats. The study guide from Mometrix is the one study tool that I consistently read through everyday (by domains). I have sticky post-its separating the 5 domains and secret keys to make easy access while studying. The Secret Keys section in the back of the study guide helped me to get a game plan. Mometrix even included special websites pertaining to some of the information within the domains.

I am very satisfied with my purchase. I like how there are review videos provided to watch. As far as the Mathematics section, I like how there are examples provided to give ourselves an idea of each problem that may be on the exam. Overall, I found the review videos very helpful because I am more of a visual and audio learner. Definitely recommend to all those future teachers working on their Generalist state exm.
