I am currently studying for the cbest exam in all three areas, math, reading and writing. Does anyone have any current information that would help better prepare for these tests.

The math part of the CBEST covers math through Algebra I and a tiny bit of Geometry.
For the writing section, plan and write a 5-paragraph paper with plenty of details and examples to prove whatever point you will try to make. Stay on topic. Off-topic answers, even if well written, will get you a zero.
The reading section is the toughest, IMO! Many of the questions seem to be "trick questions" and the answer choices will include a couple of obviously wrong ones, but you'll really have to pay attention to choose between the answer choices that are left.
I taught English in grades 9-12 in California for about 12 years before taking that test (for a different credential), and I was astounded that my math score was better than my reading score!! =)
Use the links Ms. Sue has given you above, and be sure to use your time wisely during the exam.
First, if you have a question, it is much better to put it in as a separate post in <Post a New Question> rather than attaching it to a previous question, where it is more likely to be overlooked.
5/6 - 1/4
Change to common denominator of 12 and add.
10/12 - 3/12 = ?
I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
