“I used XAM TExES Mathematics 4-8 & 8-12. I have not had a math course in 19 years so I wanted to cover all the bases. The XAM books were quite good and on target. I did the sample questions in XAM then I studied my weak areas. Treat XAM like the gospel and focus on its explanation of the answers.”
