    Hi, everybody! I took the 5014 a couple of years ago, and passed Science 200(!), Soc St (197!), and English (190!), but didn't meet Vermont's Math cut off of 164. I got a 154. Fast forward to now: I'm living in Colorado, and they require the 5018. Now, I know that for the 5014, I could have retaken just the Math part, but I can't tell if that is the case with the 5018. More importantly, I'm wondering whether 5018 is scored as a WHOLE, rather than the four parts, since I clearly would have passed 5014 if it had been scored that way. Thoughts?
    p.s. I have been working as a para since I first took the PRAXIS, and I do have Middle School HQ certification. There were no jobs in VT, so I moved to CO, and I've been hired to teach 5th grade for the coming school year.

    I have taken this exam four times now and I go soon to take it a fifth time. I am worried and stressed about it and it's not just because it costs money, I really don't want to be held back a semester because I couldn't pass my test in time to student teach. I have passed all of the other three required tests on the first try and did really well on them. For all of us that are struggling with this test, we can do this. It may take a little longer than we had anticipated but we will get it because we love this career and want to make a difference in the lives of children. Good luck everyone!

    Congratulations! I took it on yesterday and failed again. But I improved my score. I don't know what else to study. I take the Lord with me each time I go. Do you have any suggestions?

    I PASSED!!!
    I used the study guide that ETS provides for free. I googled anything on the list that I wasn't secure about. I also consulted my college course notes, of course.
    My suggestion to all is to do the same. If you've failed more than twice, you might want to think about taking some more college courses.
    Good luck to all!

    Yep! Practice tests helped more than anything in my opinion. I wasn't surprised by wording or types of questions.

    Has anyone that took the 5018 praxis around July 14, 2016 received their official scores yet?

    Thank you for responding so quickly! I know what my score is but I am waiting for the official scores so that I can start teaching on a practitioner license. Seems like it is taking forever!! Will you let me know when you get yours? I will also let you know! Thank you! : )

    Hi everyone. I just took praxis 5018 for the second time yesterday and again I didn't pass. Scores were:
    Reading- 31
    Math- 20
    Social studies- 10
    Science- 10

    I studied for a month using 2 books, one of which I didn't find to be helpful. I also used the free test on teachers test prep site. I feel like i tried my best but the science and social studies is just up broad to get more correct answers. Can someone please give me any advice or refer me to a resource that can raise my social studies and science scores???

    What books did you use? Did you buy the practice test from ets? I found all the practice tests I got my hands on were more helpful than reading reviews for social studies and science. The Knowledge Encyclopedia is a good source to get quick facts for social studies and science.

    I download Learning express 0014/5014 which I found to very helpful and easy to understand. I also purchased A blue and yellow book titled Praxis II Elementary Education Content Knowledge 5014&5018. I have not purchased the ETS exams because I've seen so many negative comments saying that they wouldn't be helpful. Did you purchase from ETS and find the exams helpful? Thank you so much for responding!! I will definitely try the encyclopedia.

    I had the learning express book for 5018 and it has several tests that I found helpful also. I thought the ETS test was very helpful. I was not surprised by any wording or types of questions on the test.
