    Praxis 0014 tests reading/language, social studies, math, and science. Your official score reports should shed some light on your performance in each of these areas, and that in turn can help you figure out what to emphasize.

    I just checked with the praxis people today-- and I have been coming up short in math--- that is where I scored the lowest, I hate math so much-lol. Are there any websites that are good for math ( 1-6)?

    Start by detoxifying math: get hold of a copy of Johnny Ball's Go Figure: A Totally Cool Book About Math (the publisher is Dorling Kindersley).

    You might then want to try something like Practical Math Success in 20 Minutes a Day, which is published by LearningExpress and should be available at any decent big bookstore.

    Some good math Web sites are http://www.amathsdictionaryforkids.com/, http://www.secondteacher.com/Default.aspx, http://mathforum.org, http://www.purplemath.com, and Khan Academy's YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/khanacademy#p/c/7AF1C14AF1B05894/10/gvwKv6F69F0.

    You're welcome!

    We don't post actual specific test questions here (see the WARNING at the top of the page, and it does apply to Praxis too) - but if you've got questions about content, feel free to post 'em.

    And I've just realized this thread was in the wrong subforum. Welcome to the Multiple Subject Tests subforum, where you may find discussions of other states' elementary-ed subject-matter tests that can help you with yours.
