PRAXIS I PREPARATION TIPS Created by Peter Osborne, Resident Assistant University of Maine at Farmington I would like to submit this bulletin board I created for education preparing to take the Praxis I exam. This exam is required in many states for any student wishing to enter a teacher education program and is a source of great stress for many education students at colleges all over the country!
PRAXIS I PREPARATION TIPS Your Guide to ACING the Test!
Dont answer too quickly! Make sure to read through all of the answer choices before picking an answer! Often one choice will seem correct…until you examine the others more closely!
PACE Yourself! Bring a watch to the test to make sure that you work at a reasonable pace! Remember that the test is timedmake sure that you know how long each is and how long it leaves for each question!
Be in good mental and physical condition for the test! Be well-rested for the test, so that you can stay calm and focused! Eat a healthy breakfast to avoid hunger pangs that lead to distraction! Dont stay up the night before to cramits not worth it!
If you dont knowalways guess! Only your correct answers are used to determine your score! If you dont know an answer, use your powers of deduction to eliminate less likely answers and then guessit cant hurt!
PRAXIS I Math Reacquaint yourself with (and memorize) basic math formulas and their variables neither will be listed on the test! FOCUS ON: Geometric shapes and basic equations and formulas.
PRAXIS I Reading Practice technical reading by checking out science journals and magazines and focus on comprehending the big ideas (and some important details!) READ each passage (not just skim), and pick out the main ideas and relationships within each passage.
PRAXIS I Writing The writing section requires a strong understanding of sentence structure: the placement of direct and indirect objects, for example, and the basic parts of speech. Being able to identify all the aspects of a sentence is the only way to ensure that you are able to rule out all incorrect answers!
