    Hey everyone! Today I just took the combined version of the Praxis Core. I passed the reading section with a perfect score, and feel fairly confident about how I did on the writing. However, I did not pass the math section and received a 132, and I need a 150 to pass. I plan to retake the test within the next month or so, and I was wondering if there are any resources that would be beneficial in helping me study? From the research I've done today, a lot of people seem to suggest Dr. Lynn Gardner's Math Core Made Easy. I was wondering if anyone has used this book and it's a valid resource, or if it's just a scam? Anyway, any suggestions or recommendations for studying would be great! Thanks!!!

    Welcome to A to Z, hannah0409!

    Having now experienced Praxis Core math questions, can you identify some specific math skills/concepts in which you didn't perform as well as you'd like? Fractions? Percentages? Rate problems? Algebra?

    Will you be taking an elementary-education subject-matter test soon?

    I would strongly recommend the book because the questions that are in the book are the same exact ones on the test. I went from a 124 to 160 using the book and I had a tutor who helped me too. The book is worth the $35.

    Also, I was wondering what type of book you used to pass the writing because I am having trouble passing that part.

    p.s. I took the test last week so it's very up to date.

    I am using her book to study, my test is next week. I hope they are the same questions because if so, I feel confident that I will pass!
