CSET Math Prep
(from someone who can actually explain it)
Chris is a Stanford-educated tutor with over 10 years experience tutoring math to students of all abilities and levels, from pre-algebra and middle school all the way through college algebra, calculus and the SAT. In that time he got a lot of experience learning how to explain this stuff in a way it actually makes sense to normal people, and he brings that experience to his videos, whether you are in class now or preparing for CSET Math.
How to prep for CSET Math using ThatTutorGuy.com -- The table below contains a list of all the topics you'll find on the CSET Math test. In the right-hand column of the table are links to all the videos on our site that you'll want to watch to cover those topics.
California Subject Examinations for Teachers (CSET): Math
About the test: There are 3 CSET sub-tests for Mathematics: Subtest I, Subtest II, and Subtest III. The tests are administered by Pearson. You must pass all three for credentialing but take only one at a time for each test session.
