1.0 out of 5 stars The list of errors and typos August 11, 2009
By Cindy
Hi Guys - some sections of this guide offered a good consolidated overview of topics (history, language arts, science) - but the errors in the math section offset the value a lot. (Also - I was shocked at how little overlap there was between the actual exam I took and the material in the study guide. You'll need to review other guides in addition to this one).

Here is a list of errors (at least the ones I noted):

1. Page 96 - Sphere formula incorrect (should be 'r-cubed', not 'r-squared').

2. Page 99 - See "Therefore, the probability of rolling a 3 is 1:6 or 1/6 or 1 to 6 or .6..." - the reference to '.6' is incorrect and should be '.1666'.

3. Page 89 - Slope formula is incorrect (should be: 'x2 - x1' in the denominator instead of 'y2 - y1'.

4. Page 103 - #1 (Mean...), line 2 '70' is incorrect and should be '75'.

5. Page 175 - sublimation starts from a 'solid', not a 'liquid'.

6. Page 216 and 217 - #118 - Correct answer ('120') is not listed as a choice. (See also page 226 for related calculation error).

6.a. - Page 226 - #118 - denominator value incorrect (7! does not equal '1008', it equals '5040').

7. Page 217 - #74 - typo - answer is 'B' (as indicated in solutions on page 223), not 'A' as referenced on pg 217.

Good luck on your exam!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great review book May 2, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I didn't get to spend a whole lot of time with this book, maybe a couple of hours for review, after all it is just a content knowledge test. The test covers k-6 knowledge so I didn't think I would have to spend too much time studying. It is very good book for reviewing this basic knowledge. There were a couple of questions that were on the practice test in the book that were on the actual Praxis test, so I was grateful. And regretful that I didn't read it more.

This book will not properly prepare you for the Content Knowledge Praxis II 0014 exam if it is the only thing you buy. There are many, many typos and lots of wrong information in this guidebook and you have to double check things (by the way: many people think that the 0014 exam is only information that students are taught from K-5. NOT TRUE:there are questions that ask difficult algebra, logic, reading comprehension, history, science, etc. This is a CONTENT KNOWLEDGE test for adults.) To prepare adequately, please purchase the study guide from ETS when you sign up to take your Praxis. Also, purchase the sample test available from ETS because the sample test from Cliffs Notes is way too easy and concentrates on inane facts. Also, the REA study book available on Amazon has some good information. Do yourself a favor and start reviewing early (don't start a month before). If you are a well-read person and fairly intelligent, you will pass. If you want to score very high to get the ROE (recognition of excellence), you'll probably need to study to review all this stuff from high school and college (I am almost 40). I wish someone would have pointed me in this direction when I read these reviews - I wouldn't have wasted so much time with this review book or its sample test ( the questions are not like the real 0014). I took the test this summer and scored Recognition of Excellence (top 10%) probably because I purchased this guide, the REA guide and the study guide and sample tests from ETS when you sign up for the test.

5.0 out of 5 stars All Errors and Typos Have Been Corrected July 26, 2011
By MeganD
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I just wanted to say that the errors and typos listed by Cindy Feichtner (thank you!) in another review of the book have actually been corrected. I'm not sure if my copy, which I purchased last week on Amazon, is a more recent printing, but I double checked all of Cindy's error notes, and they have all been corrected in my book. I couldn't find a printing date, but I'd be willing to bet that if you purchase a "new" Cliffs Notes test prep book, there will be no errors in the information.

Also, I just wanted to say that I've been impressed with this book. Before buying this book, I had only used the ETS (the same company that creates the Praxis test) study guide. The ETS study guide does not contain all the information needed to study, it just tells you what information to study. For instance, the ETS study guide will tell you that you need to be familiar with algabraic formulas, but it will not tell you what the algebraic formulas are - you will need to look them all up online or in another book. However, the Cliffs Notes study guide includes all information - you could adequately prepare for the Praxis using only this book. I have found it to be very helpful, and I only wish that I had ordered it earlier.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good study guide August 20, 2009
I had less than a month to study for the Elementary Ed: Content Knowledge Test (0014). I needed to take the test to become a highly qualified special educator. I looked at a lot of books before settling on this one, and I was very happy with my choice. The book gives you a brief overview of many of the topics that will be on the test so you do not have to dig through textbooks or search the web to brush up on concepts. I used this, videos on brainpop, and the ETS guide to study exclusively, and my score qualified for ETS recognition of excellence! However, like others have mentioned, the test in the back was not helpful. I purchased the retired test from ETS and found it to be a much better representation of what was actually on the test.

All in all, this book was worth every penny. Good luck as you prepare for your Praxis!
