CBEST

I PASSED! :)

And I didn't even use a study guide like this.

I found out on Thursday that I can begin subbing in the Santa Maria-Bonita School District! They are in desperate need of good subs, and they are working with me since I'll have my Bachelor's by the end of the year. I will be able to make more money, and have the flexibility of not working on the days when I have big projects due in my classes.
I registered (from the beach ;) ) to take the test on Saturday the 17th. I went in and they took my picture, fingerprints, and wouldn't let me take my water bottle in. :( I raised my hand to have a break and they took my ID, fingerprinted me again, and the process was repeated to go back in. I couldn't even wear my watch inside!
They handed me my unofficial results at the end of the test....and I had no idea what they meant. I had to get online on my phone once in my car and look at how the thing was scored! They didn't have a percentage or anything. Just a 65 and a 55. So I know for sure I passed the Reading and Math sections, now my essays have to be scored and I will find out for sure if I passed the whole thing. With my scores though - I technically could get a 2 on my writing and pass the whole thing :)
The cool thing about the CBEST is that once you take it, it stays with you the rest of your life! I never have to take that test again!!!! Woo-hoo!
