Praxis tests all have four-digit numbers. What you're dealing with is a Pearson product: NES 204. That's a single-subject subject-matter test, so I'm moving it to the Single Subject Tests subforum. (No, you're not in trouble: this is minor housekeeping.)
("Praxis" is a trademark of ETS, the company that also makes the SAT and GRE exams. Praxis is ETS's line of teacher tests; it was intended to be national, though these days it's mostly states east of the Rockies that use exclusively Praxis exams for teachers.)
aepa.nesinc.com will have, or to be precise link you to, some free online prep materials for this test, including an outline of the test structure and content standards. Having a look at those can help you refine just what it is that you need; at that point, feel free to ask questions here. Wikipedia is also very much your friend.
When Pearson launched it and the rest of the NES (or NESTest) series, nearly all of them consisted of multiple-choice questions. If you're not good at multiple-choice questions, this is a fine time to learn.
Rummaging around in this Single Subject Tests subforum should net you some discussions of other states' science tests. Middle-school science tests in general test physical science (physics, chemistry, the geological and astronomical aspects of earth and space science) and life science (biology, the ecological/environmental aspects of earth and space science). Count on being tested on concepts more advanced that one actually teaches in middle school; the reason is that it's easier to help students lay a foundation for the science they'll learn in high school and beyond if one actually has a decent grasp of the science they'll learn in high school and beyond.
