Praxis Study Aids

Praxis tests are taken as part of the certification process by individuals who are preparing to enter the teaching profession. These tests measure subject-specific content knowledge, as well as general teaching skills.

Below are some of the official study guides and practice tests that you can use to prepare for the general and subject-specific Praxis tests. Some are available as a download while some are only available for checkout at the library. Where you see a a note such as "Note: Useful study material for 5018; Consult ets.org for specific test structure" please be aware that the item may contain useful review questions, but the structure of the test may vary from what is described in the text.
