Information about Prep Materials for FTCE Prep
FTCE preparation refers to the study procedure that one follows for qualifying and scoring high in the Florida Teacher Certification Examination. This term also includes the registration and other administrative formalities that one has to complete in order to appear for the FTCE. Ideally, we can assume that our preparation for this examination is complete, only when both, our studies as well as the administrative tasks for this examination, are done completely and in a timely manner. Hence, one should ensure that there is no incompleteness in one's preparation for this examination, before one appears for it.
Popular FTCE Preparation Materials
In this section, we shall discuss about some commonly used FTCE preparation materials:
The Official FTCE Information Guides (http://www.fl.nesinc.com/FL_TIGS.asp)- These are the best FTCE preparation guides, as they are written by the FTCE authorities, and hence, are fully authentic. Secondly, these are consolidated sources of information, on all aspects of the FTCE (test development, test norms, test format, preparation strategies, sample questions, and further reading resources).
The Official FTCE Information Guides should be, ideally, used as the primary source of FTCE preparation. One should follow them strictly. However, these information guides do not have adequate content on the FTCE subjects and practice questions. Hence, one can further refer to the study resources recommended in these FTCE preparation materials for practice purposes.
FTCE Manuals from Government Resources- A number of government resources are offering FTCE study materials in the online PDF format. Most of them are available for public viewership. These FTCE preparation materials can be considered as next to the official FTCE information guides in authenticity, as they are from the US government sources. One can refer to these guides for preparing for the FTCE.
Paid and Unpaid FTCE Study Resources- Many publishers are publishing both online and conventional FTCE study resources. Some of these study resources are paid, while others are free. Moreover, while some free resources are good, not all of them can be expected to be of high quality. One should not forget to judge the quality of a study material, based on this criterion. Paid online FTCE preparation materials can be expected to be of good quality, but quality cannot be guaranteed in this case either. Hence, the safest way to opt for a good FTCE prep book is to assess its quality by reading its reviews on third-party websites (do not read reviews on the websites of the publisher or the book promoter), or by taking the opinions of FTCE experts.
Guidelines for Preparing for the FTCE Examination
Given below are some general guidelines for FTCE preparation:
One should start FTCE preparation with adequate time in hand.
One should apply a combination of FTCE preparation techniques for effectiveness. One can refer to the official FTCE test preparation guide, read the further-study resources recommended in it, and take tuitions for difficult subjects, if required.
One should remember that in the case of study materials, one FTCE preparation resource may not cater to all your study requirements. Hence, one should try out a combination of these study resources. One can take the help of FTCE experts to plan out wise usage of the FTCE study materials for one's benefit.
Above all, consistency and systematic effort hold the key to success in the FTCE examination. The FTCE test preparation should be done by setting daily realistic goals of preparation and ensuring that one meets them at the end of the day. One should ensure that one has completely covered the entire FTCE syllabus before taking this test.
One should practice FTCE questions in an environment that simulates the test environment, for acquaintance with the testing environment, leading to good performance on the final day of the examination. This is important as any new or unexpected experiences in the examination hall are going to adversely affect one's performance.
The FTCE preparation should be completed at least a month before the scheduled date for taking this examination, to allow recapitulation of all the knowledge that one has acquired in the course of one's FTCE preparation.
One should set aside the last month for revising all that one has studied. This is important as learning, without being able to recall the knowledge gained, is futile!
One's FTCE preparation should be aimed at gaining complete knowledge of all the FTCE content areas, the ability to identify the most appropriate answer for a given FTCE question, the ability to make educated guesswork, and complete the FTCE question paper in the time duration prescribed for this test.
