I just registered for my Praxis exam this past week and ordered THE book to study from a few weeks ago. I posted this pic.
YIKES is right! That book is huge. There is SO much in it. It makes me nervous for the test. Since I have NO experience with this test at all and some of you have, I reached out to you to get some advice. Here's what you said:
"I remember it being more of an application sort of test, which was difficult to study for. The practice tests in the book were definitely helpful."- Natalie Snyders
"Download the Praxis app and study the cards. It's kind of expensive but totally worth it!"- Roxanne Petterson
"I agree...practice tests! The book was an awesome help! Even for use during my CFY...everything was in it!"- Rae's Speech Spot
"Don't worry too much. You know more than you think."- Carly Fowler
"Just take your time going through it- you know a lot more than you think you do. Take the practice tests, they're a huge help. You will think you failed as you take it, but chances are good you'll do juuuuuuust fine."- Rachel Jones
"Take the practice test that ETS offers! Some of the questions were the exact same questions that I saw on the real one."- Stephanie McNemar
"I feel like the timing is important, so I did timed practice tests to get myself in the groove of pacing."- Jenna Rayburn
"Just breathe!"- Shannon Wilkinson
"...to relax. Most of the questions are common sense. When you apply them to students or clients you know, the answers are right there."- Jannike Johnsen
"Don't expect to know everything on the test. Sometimes you've just got to take your best guess based on what you know."- Lindsey Karol
"You only need to pass. Just passing and scoring high are the same. No one asks for your score during an interview."- Patti Bohlman
"Take a deep breath."- LyndaSLP123
"You cannot learn every fact in that book...just try and tackle a bit at a time. It's more important to take practice tests than to memorize each and every fact."- Speech Time Fun
"Pass the darn thing!"- Penny Benson
"Study study study, then study more until you dream about it. Then you're ready."- Kristy Davies
THANK YOU to everyone who responded.
