A blunt question: are your posts here fairly comparable in vocabulary, sentence structure, and mechanics to your writing elsewhere? If so, it would make sense to invest some time in brushing up on grammar and all that. Purdue University's Online Writing Lab (http://owl.english.purdue.edu/) is likely to be helpful, as is the ELS-oriented Using English (http://www.usingenglish.com).

If the Tests at a Glance doc (which I'm not now looking at) gives a list of works of literature, you need to be able to discuss those. If it doesn't, you'll be showing off that you can analyze a passage you haven't necessarily seen before, so it's less a matter of knowing the story in advance than of knowing the tools of literary analysis.

How are things working out for you. I believe some of your other posts indicate you are in Accounting. Me too!! I am going to switch things around a little and go into English instead of Language Arts. I am overwhelmed by the amount of material to learn. I'm so focused on the Praxis that I am sort of ignoring the other test. I wanted to take Praxis in March.
