Review:

Pearse, Devanney, and Nagy’s book, Passing the Mathematics Tests for Elementary Teachers, provides students a practical and clearly explained look at the Math PAPA and walks students through the various mathematical principles necessary to successfully pass this test. With clear examples and a multitude of practice exercises, students are introduced not only to the math concepts necessary to successfully pass the Math PAPA, but also to ways to tackle the test that will lead to success. For all students who want to experience success on this test, one that is an important step to teacher certification, How to Pass the Pre-Service Mathematics Test for Teachers is a must read. (Joseph E. Gillespie, dean, division of education and human services, Neumann University)

Passing the Mathematics Tests for Elementary Teachers is a timely metacognitive approach to mathematical concepts tested on the pre-service exam. Pearse, Devanney, and Nagy have presented a step by step outline of the type of problem a student will encounter on this test, opportunities to practice this problem and clear, concise answers to the problem. They have expanded the explanation by sharing the thinking behind the solution. This final step separates this book from test practice by adding the layer of "How to think through the test!" A must read for teachers approaching certification! (Lee Newman, Educational Consultant, South Carolina)

Finally, a resource to help pre-service teachers prepare for the math pre-service test! This book provides a coherent, easy-to-use approach to studying for the math pre-service exam and strengthening key math skills. Passing the Mathematics Tests for Elementary Teachers is clearly aligned with the major math concepts found on the PAPA and offers straightforward explanations, numerous examples and sample problems, and detailed answer keys that support further learning. Additionally, by enhancing the understanding of critical math skills and concepts, Passing the Mathematics Tests for Elementary Teachers supports the future teacher's ability to one day teach similar content to children. (Barbara Hanes, assistant professor of education, Neumann University)

The authors should be commended for producing such a valuable, informative and practical book for helping pre-service teachers prepare for the math pre-service exams. This much needed work will invite, excite and excel our pre-service teachers into the profession. (Beverly R. Bryde, dean for education, Cabrini College)

This book gives a very concise, straightforward and clear look at the mathematical concepts that are including on the pre-service test. With so many students struggling with math and being discouraged by their difficulties passing the test, this text is a valuable resource not only in helping these students succeed on the exam but also showing them that mathematics need not be intimidating. (John Brown, associate professor and chair mathematics department, Cabrini College)
