New York State Teacher Certification Exams based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
Do not waste your money on this book! I found many errors just trying to do the practice problems. This book would be a great review if you were going on, let's say, Jeopardy, but this book has nothing even remotely similar to the actual test. The actual LAST test is really using your prior knowledge along with your common sense to figure out the best answer for each problem. The test is more about strategy than knowing facts, which this books provides nothing for. If you want a good review, I would reccommend ordering the preparation guide for the LAST from the NYSTCE.
I found too many errors in the test questions and the answer keys. Errors include poorly phrased questions, distracters that do not include a correct response, and inaccurate answer keys. This leaves me to wonder what errors or misinformation might be present in the review sections.
I cannot tell you how many mistakes I am finding while going through this book. Shame on Arco for not proof reading this book! I am studying for my NYS Teacher Certification Exam and am frustrated with all of the incorrect answers this book gives.
As an experienced teacher relocating to New York, I found myself required to take the LAST. I bought this book to study from and while the explanations were fairly decent the number of errors I found were appalling. Speaking as a math teacher, I would give this type of work a D grade in my classroom!
