I'm not sure if I am asking this question in the appropriate place, but here it goes... Has anyone taken the new TExEs (191 generalists) Ec-6 Exam? How was it? Any advice? Also, they give you 5 hours, does it take that long? I have a public relations degree and have NO experience teaching expect with being a substitute a few you need to have an education degree to pass this test the first time around? THANKS!

You will absolutely have to pass English Language Arts and Reading because that is about 47 percent of the test. You do not have to pass every single part of the rest of t...See More

Mary Kay I found the NATH book EC-4 very helpful, even though it doesn't go to 6th. It was good review.

Helpful hints: Definitely study Texas history, Constitutional Amendments, branches of gov. Know in PE, Art and Music what is an a...See More
