Praxis 1

I am a senior this year, and I am also a student intern and I am supposed to graduate in the spring. I have taken the Praxis 1 and did not pass it. I have always had horrible test anxiety, and it gets the best of me every time I have to take a test. Does anyone have any strategies or techniques that could possibly help me for when I retake it.

Is there a section of the Praxis I that you have done well on and passed for that section. If so, you can just retake the ones you did not do so well on.

But something to think of while taking your test, take your time! Also, if you want to come back to a question, mark it. This way you do not spend all of your time on one question. There are also practice books that are helpful.

http://www.amazon.com/McGraw-Hill%25...practice+tests

This is the book I used.

I have test anxiety as well. I didn't think I was going to pass my first try, especially since I didn't spend much time studying. I didn't take the SATs because of my test anxiety. But before I took the Praxis last summer, I reviewed what I had used preparing a few times the week of, got a decent nights rest, and had a well-balanced breakfast. I also took it all on the computer because I space out with paper. But because of the way the computer testing center was set up, I had my own personal cubicle which cut off the destractions for the most part. I was also able to see that I had passed my Math and Reading portion when I was finished, and only had to wait for the results for writing. I think that was helpful because it gave me more confidence and less anxiety. So I would try and take it on the computer if I were you. I would also think about just retaking the portion (s) that you did well in to try and get more points in order to meet the desired cumulative score. Good luck!!

I recently took the praxis I this summer. I am a horrible test taker that scored barely 1300 on my SAT, however I still was able to pass the praxis I on the first try, so here's what I did:

Buy a study guide book (cliffsnotes has a good one) and study it. A week prior to your test, spend about 5 or 6 hours reviewing the entire book and take some practice tests (they are included). The following days before your test, focus on what you're struggling with. (for example, I scored well on the math so I focused on reading and writing) and be sure to keep taking those practice tests.

Get plenty of sleep the day before the test too, Good Luck!

Retaking the Praxis

Make sure you get some type of study material. It will most definitely help in the long run. Also, are you only missing the total grade by a couple points? Retake a test that you did well on and see if you can bump up that score a couple points. I didn't pass the math test by one point by my writing test score was seven points over the needed score. Just take the tests you feel comfortable that you will pass. Hope this helps! :]

Thank You HaleyJ22, I struggled with the test overall. I did do okay on the writing, but I am going to retake the math and reading portion again. I definitely need to learn how to relax before taking the test. I ordered the Praxis 1 book off of the ETS website. Thanks for the suggestions.
