Long version: First let me warn buyers that the book doesn't contain the specific information you're expected to know so much as a fairly detailed guide to the topics you're expected to know. You will need to utilize other sources to master those topics. For example, it will tell you to know a particular law, but it won't define the law or tell you how to use it. Luckily the internet exists, and assuming you studied this stuff in college already, it should be more of a refresher.
The book also comes with a decent practice test for each subject which does a good job of approximating the real thing. The best part of that is that in addition to providing an answer key, it explains each of the answers. I found this extremely helpful in putting my mind at ease and giving me a sense of what they were looking for.
I expect I would have passed the test without this book because my content knowledge was quite high to begin with, but I do think that this book gave me the edge I needed for a perfect score (200/200).
Instead of purchasing this book, I recommend purchasing the real practice tests also published by ETS, and then using any textbook to read up on subjects you want to know more about.
The reality of taking the biology praxis exam (I cannot speak for the others) is that it is a regular multiple choice exam - there is nothing particularly special about the format that should not be familiar after taking a multitude of other standardized tests. You can just as easily prepare yourself by looking at the content guide available through ETS, and use your own study tools.
General Science: My other gripe is that the general science practice test was not helpful for preparing me for 0435. It was only half the length and the questions were harder on the real test. The study topics were generally accurate, but I was completely unprepared for the vast barrage of weather-related questions the real test asked me.
This is a great value for the money.
