The Praxis exam is required in many states for those who wish to become entry-level teachers. The Praxis exam is based depending on which state you want to teach in along with which subject area or grade level you want to teach.
Review: I have purchased 4 study books to start preparation for this exam and so far I like this one the most. The fact that it isn’t 300 pages long is great because it’s not too intimidating but I also feel like it includes more pertinent information than the others do. I also think that it is great that so many extras are available with this book and I have been really impressed with the Mometrix’s customer service. As someone who has been stressing about preparing for this exam, this book is truly appreciated.
Review: I think that this book is filled with a lot of great information. I like the fact that it has direct and simple paragraphs about different subject matters within my content. I also think that the randomness of the order of paragraphs helps me remember it better.
Review: This is a great study tool for the Business Praxis 5101. There is a practice exam within this guide as well as an explanation for each answer. This will allows for a deeper understanding in the event of a question being answered incorrectly. This tool will also allow for the ability to ensure selection of the correct answer due to the detailed explanations given.
Review: Great book for studying for the Praxis. It has only been 4 years since I took intro chem, but I defiantly needed a review. This book is great if you knew the material once and just need to be reminded. I wish there were more practice tests in the back, but after studying the review questions and the practice questions I felt fairly prepared for the Praxis exam.
Review: I bought this book a month and a half before my test & I studied it for about 45 mins a day. (Except on weekends) I just took the test and passed.. needed a 156 and I scored a 164! Great book to study!!!!
Review: I received my book today and I can’t wait to start preparing for my Praxis II exam. The booklet was a little smaller than what I expected but after looking through the chapters it’s definitely loaded with a lot of useful information. It also provides 101 test questions at the end of the book, followed by test answers and explanations. Im going to do an updated review after I take my exam so hopefully this resource helps me get a passing score.
Praxis II Elementary Education: Multiple Subjects (5001) Exam Secrets Study Guide: Praxis II Test Review for the Praxis II: Subject Assessments
Review: My experience so far with this product has been really good. I like that the information is separated by topic under each subject and then gives me important information about each topic that is important to study. This makes it really easy for me to make flashcards to use to study as well.
Praxis II General Science: Content Knowledge (5435) Exam Secrets Study Guide: Praxis II Test Review for the Praxis II: Subject Assessments
Review: Love how this study guide breaks everything into small sections. It really helps keep my attention and makes studying attainable, even when you only have a few minutes. You can pick right back up where you left off and not feel completely lost or where you need to re-read the section you were on last in order to continue.
Praxis II Middle School English Language Arts (5047) Exam Secrets Study Guide: Praxis II Test Review for the Praxis II: Subject Assessments
Review: This is a wonderful study guide. It is very condensed and packed with information. It is set up in very easy to read chapters and sections so that you don’t get overwhelmed by all the information. I really like the study tips and the practice test was really useful with excellent explanations for correct answers. I used this book to study along with the ETS study guide and practice tests (I recommend these also) and I did pass the test, which was very challenging! I allowed about 6 weeks to study although I felt that I was ready to take the exam after about 4 1/2 weeks. I definitely would not recommend studying longer than that b/c at that point you are simply “forcing” information into long-term memory which can be detrimental to studying. I believe that I will reference this book again and again for teaching my students; it’s that good. I highly recommend this for the Praxis 5047! Good luck and thank you MoMetrix for putting together a great study guide!
Review: I originally purchased a number of books to study for the Praxis II in music, this book being one of them. It was several months before I opened the book to study it (had other exams to get through first), and ended up purchasing the product again by mistake! The company was prompt and courteous in refunding me. The book itself, I have found extremely helpful and informative. There is a tremendous amount of information in it, so read each answer carefully. The only thing this source is missing, is the listening component: There is no CD compiled of music that may be found on the Praxis II test, or suggestions of sources where that could be found. So I have been trying to fill in that gap. The MENC website is also a wealth of information, and well worth joining (whether you are a music teacher or not). You can get practical and timely advice on everything concerning music education, so it’s worth having access to for your Praxis exam as well. I have not purchased the flashcards that are available. Although I have not taken the exam yet, it has helped!
Review: I graduated over 10 years ago with a PE degree but never got my license. Needless to say, I needed a serious refresher. My approach was to read the study guide, take the practice test, reread the study guide, retake the practice test, and review the explanations to the practice test answers. The study guide is not the easiest reading material, but it gets the job done. I passed my test with a 169 on the first try. It works!
Review: So I ordered this book because as most people on here, I wanted a study guide for my Praxis II. I’m currently pursuing my Master’s in School Counseling and completing my internship. My expected graduation date is in May 2018. I struggle with test anxiety. I’m currently a teacher and in my undergrad years I struggled with passing the Praxis 1 but after multiple attempts, I finally passed. I did not want to have the same problem this time. I took the School Counseling Praxis 2 in January 2017 and failed by 6 points. Afterwards I was determined I would pass the second try, so I ordered this book due to good reviews. I read this book cover to cover and loved the tips it had for people like me with test anxiety. I went back to take it again October 2017 and PASSED! I thank this test company a million and of course God! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Review: The book is thin compared to other praxis, and other standarized test books. However, it is very insightful and very complete. I personally am using the book as a guide line for the subjects in the test, and deep my knowledge using youtube videos or just reading more about a specific subject that I don’t know. Building my background knowledge will be easier to answer questions about the text. Praxis II Spanish; world language Spanish (5195) is a must have to the ones who need to pass the test.
Review: I have been avoiding studying for the exam because I was feeling overwhelmed by the amount of content I would need to know. The Secret Study Guide has helped me to focus by breaking down the information. The way the information is presented has helped me to take interest in studying for the exam. I like having explanations to help guide my learning on the practice tests, as well as sections of learning that focus on more detailed explanations to focus my learning.
Review: My state allows teachers to add licensure areas by meeting test requirements without taking classes. While this is not an especially good idea, I was glad to have this guide because it allowed me to do that successfully this summer. I almost aced the test after studying this guide.
