This book is a refreshing departure from some of the 500+ page books out there for PRAXIS test preparation. In the first 117 pages, author Cornelia Cocke gives you an overview of the test, in general, then offers some candid, to-the-point tips for taking the PRAXIS II test (which could be helpful hints for taking ANY type of standardized test) -- including an easy-to-remember list of principles for test-taking.
After these hints, the author takes the would-be test taker through the basics of the ONLY TWO types of PRAXIS II tests this book focuses on (and keep this focus in mind when buying!): "The Test of General Knowledge" and "The Test of Communication Skills" (the book includes an audio CD to help with the listening section of this test). While I am going to be taking the "Middle Grades: Content Knowledge" PRAXIS II test, the "General Knowledge" section of this book was applicable as a test-prep. study guide, and all the other hints & tips were very helpful for general test prep. Then the book includes a practice test for each of the TWO types of tests on which this book focuses. The only downside in comparison to some other test-prep. books is that there are no explanations to go along with the answers.
The other refreshing departure this book makes is that it's written in everyday language that gives the reader the sense that a good buddy is sitting down talking to you and "telling you like it is!" For example, in the section on "Cracking the System," the author writes, "Principle #4: One Test At a Time:" "Yeah, yeah, we know: You just want to get it over with. Or you have scheduling problems. Whatever. You know in your heart we're right.

I was very disappointed in this book, and I did not get the help I needed. I used two books, and the tips I found here were also in the other book. The other book had very useful review. There is no real review in this book, which you need for the NTE tests I took. There is only one practice test in this book, not two as the other reviewer said. The explained answers in the other book were a big help on the test, but this book has no explained answers. This book costs more than the other book and I would teel people to just save their money and get another book.

None of the tests in this book are given anymore. There is no reason to buy it.

Where do I start about how awful this book is!?!?!?!
Forget the absence of "real tests".
This book even has WRONG FACTS in it.
I thank my lucky stars I did not buy this book, I merely glanced through it. I am planning on getting certified in Biology and Chemistry - so obviously that is the section (that is all of maybe 5 pages) I flipped to.
Page 64. There is a list of 10 or so definitions that biology teachers should know. HOWEVER, the *BRILLIANT* people that wrote this book give you false and misleading definitions.
For one - examples of amino acids would include alanine, glutamine, threonine. NOT adenine, guanine, thymine and cytosine - WHICH ARE NUCLEOTIDES.
DNA - is NOT made up of amino acids, but NUCLEOTIDES, and all cells do not have nuclei - think about PROKARYOTES.
Cytoplasm was defined as "goop in the cell", and mitochondria are sausage-like structures that make energy.
WHAT!?!? That's all an instructor teaching our children should know!?!?!?! It really makes me sick. If the Princeton Review can makes such gross errors in its publications, I hate to see how bad this book was before going to the printers.
