Preparing for the ESL Praxis Exam


Use the PRAXIS study materials
by one of my students:

I used the free practice test that the PRAXIS released, and I also purchased (20 bucks) the digital practice test that PRAXIS sells.  The digital test was 120 questions and timed.  I could repeat the test many times, and it provided an explanation for questions I missed.  The format was fairly similar to the real test and it was a definitely worth the money and time to help me prepare.

For my Current Graduate Students


For the last and final word on the test #,  please check the EPSB website.  Study guide:  Order the one from the NTS, use your weekly summaries, and look at my ESL BLOG “PRAXIS” section.

All of your peers study about 4 plus weeks diligently.  They all report that you need to really memorize the phonetic alphabet and theory names.  Also, study court cases…

Our program completers usually pass with high scores.
