# 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.
