Instead, you get a book that features one very good practice test and more detailed lists of the topics that it displays on the online Test At Glance for this exam.
Use on those levels, but not really worth buying. Please try and borrow a copy from someone.
I purchased the 2013 ETS e-guide for 5021/0021 since they no longer make hard copies. That was silly. The test makers apparently do not (majorly) update their guides very often.* Out of curiosity, I took one out of the library that was circa 2004 for 0021/5021 and it was largely the same book. The content and headings had been shifted around, but the core of what a test taker needed to know was in the 2004 edition. In fact, the 2004 edition was so much easier to read. The 2013 edition that lists content is not organized well; it is often repetitive. The 2004 and 2013 edition had nearly identical practice questions - only a few were different.
So, I would not buy this book unless you cannot find a copy of it at a library or from a friend who previously took the test (or if you are insistent that you be able to write in your books). You've already or will be giving ETS north of $100 to take the test; don't give them another $22. Ohio, for example, allows library patrons to request books from all over the state and it was not hard to secure a copy of this book. Once you get the book, it entails a lot of internet research. So, get your hands on the book/giant list of study topics and then fill in your own guide. Know that most of this can be achieved for free. Just go to the library.
*As a side note, if you are taking 5014/0014, the 2006 copy was virtually the same as the 2013 edition so don't spend money on that one either. Based on my experiences, I think the old copies of the Praxis study guides are probably sufficient to get you through a test unless the test has undergone some changes (adding extended responses for example).
Now, how good are the guides themselves? I have to say that I skimmed the first one to prepare for my first Praxis II exam and found it horribly intimidating. I didn't think I had a prayer of passing when I looked at the study guide, but I didn't find the examination nearly as difficult as the guide led me to believe it would be. My tests involved a lot of "horse sense" and questions that you had better be able to answer at this point in your collegiate career. If you can't answer them, either you must suffer from serious test anxiety or you have been wasting your tuition dollars.
For the other two exams I didn't use my other study guides and passed both tests the first time, one with a perfect score. Seriously, my advice is to listen to your professors in class and go over your notes that you took in class. Reality is that any decent professor will have pointed out the things that are likely to appear on the test anyway, and would have (without giving specific information) provided you with everything you need to pass your Praxis II examinations. This is what we pay for when we go to college. You shouldn't need to cram for these exams; by the time your down to your last semester of college, you should already be able to pass the examinations without additional study.
If you're good at taking standardized tests, don't waste your time.
If you struggle taking these types of tests, you can buy the book to make you feel more confident (but don't pay more than $15.00 for it!)... but you're probably better off reviewing your notes really well.
If you fail because you didn't know the answers, go kick your professor.
