A Praxis II Test Study Guide Unlike Any Other
If you'd like to get the Praxis II test score you deserve, to quit worrying about whether your score on the Praxis II test is "good enough," and to beat the test taking game, then this might be the most important message you read this year.
Our comprehensive study guide for the Praxis II Subject Test is written by our Praxis II test experts, who painstakingly researched the topics and the concepts that you need to know to do your best on the Praxis II test. Our original research into the Praxis II: Subject Assessment, offered by the Educational Testing Service (ETS), reveals the specific content areas and the essential skills that are critical for you to know on the Praxis II test. We've taken the information and developed a study guide that is guaranteed to help you be successful on the Praxis II test.
Regardless of which Praxis II test you have to take- you have come to the right place. Here you will find everything you need to know in order to be successful and get your certification.
Now, we know you may be skeptical, so let us give you three good reasons we can back up what we claim:
The Three Reasons To Believe What We Say
The First Reason:
Our company's name is Mometrix Test Preparation, and we have a team of standardized test researchers who have worked on developing our study guide for the Praxis II test. The standards for who gets to work on the team are very strict- we demand the best for our customers, and only those who met our exacting standards made the cut. The dedicated research staff have years of combined experience in mastering the content and skills necessary to succeed on the toughest exams.
The Second Reason:
Some academic studies have revealed that test takers do not really benefit from the traditional test preparation process. But we knew there had to be a solution- if test takers were not doing well on the Praxis II test despite high intelligence, there had to be a set of secret keys to the test that would open the door of success for these test takers.
We believe we have succeeded in finding the secret keys of the exam. What we found was surprising, and in some cases ridiculously simple once explained to the average test taker.
We put the findings together in a thorough, concise study guide that we believe allows any test taker, at any skill level, to improve his or her results dramatically with a minimum of effort.
The Third Reason:
We created the product in part because we were frustrated by the options available to test takers who really wanted to do well on the Praxis II test.
A common approach is to TEACH the material, instead of TEACHING THE TEST. That's not necessarily good enough for the Praxis II test- you have to know how to apply the knowledge. Most test takers already have a general knowledge of the material that will be covered on the exam.
One reason some test takers do well on the day of the test is that they have made the critical connection between the material they learned and how to use the material to succeed on the Praxis II test.
Our guide addresses the difference between merely knowing the material and knowing how to use the material to perform on test day.
You're going to save time, money, and aggravation. You'll learn to avoid the mistakes and the bad strategies that you've been vulnerable to. --Just for starters, here are some ways our product can help your score on the Praxis II test...

I purchased the Secrets file, and I just wanted to let you know that I got a 99% on my test. I just want to thank you again, and hope you have continued success in your ventures. Sincerely, Paul L.
My name is Chris. I used the Secrets study guide for five days. The study guide made the test so easy to understand. Like you said this program is worth 100's of dollars. To me 1,000's!! THANKS, Chris G.
I just had to thank you guys for the test prep! I bought the guide as a last minute prep, I mean maybe 5 hours before the test. Like I said, I had ZERO preparation! I was nervous about the test let alone receiving the score I needed. I read the guide through only once before test time and needless to say, the only way I passed was thanks to your refresher!! Brian
Just dropping you a note to let you know that I am completely satisfied with the product. I had already taken the test once and landed in the 75 percentile of those taking it with me. I took the test a second time and used some of your tips and raised my score to the 97 percentile. Thanks for my much improved score. Denise W.
I heard about your website from a friend. I am enrolled in a review course, and in hindsight, I wish I wouldn't have taken my review course and instead spent a fraction of the money on your program. Thank you! Zac L.
You get at least 10 times your money's worth! --When you consider what's at stake with the exam, we believe the value of our study guide gives you at least ten times your money's worth.

I studied about 4-5 days a week for about 2 hrs a day. I read through the whole book (not necessarily in order) while taking notes. What I liked about the book though was that it aligned to the ETS study guide. It was definitely a huge help and it is good to have just to always reference to even after passing the test. Best of luck! Remember to make a study plan ... And to stick to it!
