Preparing for the Praxis

How can I practice for the Praxis test and learn more about what’s covered in each test?
Anyone considering taking a test in The Praxis Series should spend some time reviewing the Tests at a Glance booklet in each relevant content area. Tests at a Glance booklets include content outlines, sample questions with rationale for the best answers and test-taking strategies.

Access Tests at a Glance booklets.

Tests at a Glance booklets are in downloadable PDF files. In order to view and print these files, you need Acrobat Reader software. Download Adobe Acrobat Reader. If you prefer to order your own free copy of any of the Tests at a Glance booklets, check with your university or call ETS at 1.609.771.7395.
