CSET Business Subtest II Preparation & Registration
Each of the video lessons in our study guide for the CSET Business Subtest II is brief and includes a self-assessment quiz with questions similar to those you'll encounter on the actual test. These lessons can serve as a refresher for information you've already covered in your formal postsecondary education, and they might even introduce you to some topics that you've not encountered before.
The CSET Business exams are paper-based and are offered only four times a year. You must register online approximately a month before your chosen test date; late and emergency registrations are available beyond this point but they require an extra fee. The registration process requires information specific to your education and work experience, and you'll be able to decide which organizations you'd like to receive your scores. On test day, show up at your designated testing center around 7:30 a.m. with photo identification, #2 pencils and the test ticket that will be emailed to you following registration.
CSET Business Subtest II Scoring
You must score at least 220 points to pass the CSET Business Subtest II. Multiple-choice questions are tallied electronically, while the two written questions are evaluated by California educators who score them based on your knowledge of the subject matter and your ability to stay focused and support your arguments. It will take about four weeks before results of your test are available online. Scores will be sent to the organizations you've requested, and they'll remain valid for licensure purposes for up to five years.
Accounting and Finance
The accounting and finance portion of the CSET Business Subtest II includes 25 multiple-choice questions and one brief constructed-response question. These questions will cover the preparation of basic financial statements and the role of technology in accounting. You'll need to know about forecasting, budgeting and long-range planning and be able to calculate the time value of money. Questions specific to personal finance might address consumer credit and debt management; saving, investing and retirement planning; and personal income taxes.
The economics section of the CSET Business Subtest II features 15 multiple-choice and one short essay question. Topics covered include economic scarcity and the function of choice as well as the flow of goods and services. You'll need to understand economic structures and incentives along with market supply and demand schedules. Macroeconomics-focused questions might center on the gross domestic product, effects of inflation and types of unemployment as well as the basic types and functions of money. Additionally, you'll likely have to prove your knowledge of foreign currency and exchange rates.
