I want to congratulate all of those professionals that have passed the TEXES exam. However, I am very disappointed with myself as well as my 12 colleagues I know. We have yet to pass the Principals exam. I have read this book backwards and forwards for two years and came close to passing but fail. This book has not prepared me. Can anyone assist me?
