  • Identify resources available: Identify books, courses and other resources you plan to use for each content area.
  • Develop a schedule: Create and commit to a schedule that provides for regular study periods.
  • Study with others: Join a study group and prepare with others who are planning to take the same Praxis test.
  • Review previous score reports: If you are retaking a Praxis test, review your score report, discuss it with your academic advisor, and target areas for additional study.
