Subject: Re: Math Praxis II (0061) 9/17/05 questions - need help

I moved to the Kansas/Missouri area to increase my chance of getting a teaching job. My certication is in Business/Marketing education; however, in the state of Missouri you can obtain another licensure by taking the Praxis. The passing score is 158. I have taken this stupid exam twice and received scores of 152 and 153, respectively. I will not give up and plan to take this test until I pass. I wholeheartedly agree that this test is either designed to weed people out or is written by math geniuses. At a middle school level, competency in advance math is not necessary. Besides, who would teach math if he or she did not feel comfortable in doing so.
