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. Subtest 1 covers the domains Number and Quantity and Algebra. Subtest II covers the domains Geometry and Probability and Statistics. Subtest III covers Calculus. Tests are taken on a computer, are timed (2.5 hours for I and II and 2 hours for III) and administered year round.
Calculators: Calculators (graphing) are allowed on Subtest II only and must meet the guidelines of the calculator policy:
How to Study: Start by testing yourself on the appropriate practice test from the CTC (California Teaching Credentials) site. (There are lots of free practice tests online but the official one will have the most relevant questions). Use a similar calculator as you will use on your test. Since the test itself is timed, we recommend also limiting your time to about 2 hours.
General Study Tips: If you haven't found them already, Chris has a great series of videos on HOW to study including how to counter math anxiety prior to a big test and the best ways to prepare. Study Tips
