This is the only introduction to teaching text that is specifically built around the new Texas standards for teacher certification.

There are several practice TExES books, but they are short on theory. Nath and Cohen

Overview

This is the only introduction to teaching text that is specifically built around the new Texas standards for teacher certification. Although there are many excellent introductory teaching texts, none of these are matched precisely to the Texas teacher certification standard. There are several practice TExES books, but they are short on theory. Nath and Cohen combine both, so not only will students pass the Texas certification text, they will also learn a great deal about good teaching practice.

This book along with the book regarding Content (see notes) is all you need to pass the TEXES! It not only covers what you need to know, gives you test taking strategies, sample questions, but also covers things you may have forgotton such as Texas History (meaning the Content book).
