    Hi All,

    I was planning on taking the Praxis II last month, but I was freaking out and simply did not have the time to put into the test. I'm beginning to study again starting today (minimum 1 hour/day for the next month).

    I just took a practice test from ETS and received a score of 81/130, which translates to a 62%. I calculated the percentage to pass the test and I need an 83%.

    The breakdown of my score is as follows:
    Reading: 31/49
    Language Use & Vocab: 19/33
    Writing, Speaking, Listening: 31/48

    I'm really worried I may just not be cut out to pass this test. What can I do to ensure I pass it? I can't start grad school until I do. (I've already started looking at the Elmer's posts, Quizlets & the Mometrix book which is horrid).

    Thanks for any and all help!!!

    I used the sample test (the $19.95 version you purchase from ETS), and a Metromix Study Guide as my foundation for studying. I did a lot of googling/wikipedia from there to shore up areas where I was weak. Worked well.

    I have both of those. I'm really not finding the Mometrix guide helpful

    I felt the Mometrix guide was useful as a general overall guide.
    The best guide was the fact that on the Praxis practice test, they explain the answers after you finish. That was an immense help.
