I was tempted to go for the Kaplan but a classmate referred me to this even though it was a bit more expensive but she said it was worth it. This book was extremely helpful in that it helped me to review the subjects I was weak in. Also the assessment test at the beginning of the book helped me identify a couple of my weak spots that I forgot about (it’s been a while since I’ve looked at roots & triangles!) and to help me to re-learn them without having to use a textbook. I liked how the book was straight to the point and gave me a lot of practice. I didn’t finish all the sections in the book (did about three quarters), but it helped me review the areas I needed. There was a good variety of problem types and if you learn by doing problems, this is the book to get!

After several years of teaching English in a private school, I decided to switch to teaching at a public school, which necessitated passing the Praxis I test. Problem: I had forgotten my math from high school. To resolve this problem, I searched for books on the math portion of the Praxis I exam. Problem: I couldn't find any. Until I found Praxis I Math: My Private Tutor. This book offered me a lot for my money. It covered all the material on the real Praxis test. Some of the material was hard for me, but I persisted, and eventually everything clicked, as the explanations are excellent. There are also enough problems to give me the practice that I badly needed. I can confirm that the errors commented on by other reviewers have been fixed.

this is a excellent prep book if you need a serious refresher like I did. If you have had a college math course recently, it might be more than you need, but I have been out of math classes for about 8 years and needed the complete recap. If your not sure if you need to refresh any particular area it is a good book for that too, It covers everything! It also has good assessment tests. It gives easy to understand explanations and lots of practice exercises.

I found that this book offers useful, confidence-building suggestions and strategies to overcome anxieties related to the math section of the Praxis I exam. By taking the Assessment test first, I was able to determine my strengths and weaknesses and then focus on the individual chapters in areas in which I needed help. The narrative explanations, followed by examples and exercises, were very constructive and contributed to my understanding of basic mathematical principles.

I love the book! It's very helpful. It came fast and when I really needed it. It really helps the student who struggles in math. I recommend starting at the beginning and following all the way through to the end though. I skipped around thinking some of it was too easy only to find that I should not have skipped around.
