The Test of All Tests:

I took the "Praxis" about a month ago. It tests you on the "content knowledge" of Elementary School and you have to pass it to become a registered teacher. I was nervous (no, the questions were not 2+2), studied and just found out today that I passed! :) Yay!

Some sample questions from the test...see if YOU know the answer!
(All questions taken from the Social Studies portion)

1.After the death of Alexander the Great in 323 B.C.E, the major cities of Macedonia, Persia and Egypt attested to the continuing strong influence of Greek culture by doing what?

2.In the decade of the 1990's. after the fall of communism in the Soviety Union, what became widespread in Russia?

3. Which job markets in the United States did the number of workers decline in the years 1990-1999?

4.What is the largest source of federal revenue in the United States?

Yeah...being an El Ed Major isn't looking so easy afterall, is it? ;)
