My goal is 178 or better--- What are the best ways to study for this exam?

    Tests of this kind seek evidence that you can write an organized essay on a set topic under time pressure, that you can supply evidence to back up your thesis, and that you know some key rules of grammar.

    If you have to choose between making your writing interesting but unorganized vs. boring but structured, go for boring but structured.

    Your best bet is probably to find a real live person who knows what Praxis I essays require and can give you feedback and coaching... and then do a lot of writing for feedback.
