Those that are currently in graduate school and/or just graduated. I would super appreciate details regarding the praxis! What should my focus be on? Any specific topics?

 

thank you in advance

Okay so I didn't actually start my graduate program yet, but I DO remember the director at my program at Queens College telling us in our anatomy class that we NEED to know the different nerves responsible for speech and phonation (X Vagus nerve, etc.). She said she vividly remembers that being covered on the Praxis

The praxis changes regularly so don't get caught up in studying one topic profusely and not another. My version was different than many of my classmates who took it a month before I did. I reviewed material from all my classmates generally and passed fine. It's big on case study applications in addition to straightforward facts. One version might have more questions on a certain topic while another has one or none on that but a bunch on a different topic. If I had to recommend something I'd say be prepared for both eval and treatment questions, and even review undergrad stuff like hearing/speech science. Some people will study a lot and others will just go take it. Depends on your test taking ability. Definitely take a practice test if nothing else.

I'm also curious about the Praxis test. Can I take it before attending graduate school so that I have one fewer thing to worry about? How many attempts am I allowed to take the exam before I eventually pass? If I don't pass the test while attending graduate school, can I take it after graduation? Any impact from that?

Thank you for your advices!!

Oh great topic! Someone I know mentioned they had gotten a book specifically for the PRAXIS exam (I imagine like the GRE prep books). They studied the book, and passed no problem.

You can take the Praxis at any time.  I believe in a forum on Reddit there were some students who accidentally took it in undergrad and passed.  I have 2 Praxis Practice tests in PDF format if anyone is interested.  I can email them to you.  The closest thing to the real test as far as how it is administered is the $15-20 practice test ETS offers.  It is timed and formatted JUST like the real computer test.

Take any time is great! Can I also take as many times as possible until I pass? BTW, I also sent a PM to you my email. Thanks again!

@twinguy7 I realize this thread is pretty old, but I'd also be interested in the pdf practice tests if they are still available. I'll send you my email. Thanks!
