I am editing way after the fact. I did pass the test and scored in the top 5%. HOWEVER, this was due to hard work on my part. I researched and studied everything it told me to, which was something I could have done, as another reviewer said, by looking through a high school textbook. It basically gives you a list of what will possibly be on the test, and then you have to look up all the information from other resources. It is quite literally only a GUIDE and if that's what you want, then this product is for you. If you want more information included, then do look elsewhere. This is not an inclusive resource.
Considering I wasn't an English major and that I haven't had an English class in more than 20 years, I really needed a comprehensive study guide. While this book gave some ideas on how to prepare for the exam, and provides a full sample test, I do have a few issues.
The MAIN issue: The guide lists about 50 authors that it recommends one emphasize while studying, as the exams will focus on these authors.
Well, I took three different sample exams plus the actual exam. From that list of 50 authors, only Shakespeare appeared on all the tests.
In fact, with the exception of Shakespeare, the "recommended" authors rarely, if ever appeared on the exams. Not one of the sample exams, nor the real exam had more than ONE author other than Shakespeare from the list.
The vast majority of the quoted authors on the official Praxis exam were obscure authors, many of whom I had no knowledge.
Luckily, I passed the exam. While the "Study Guide" helped little, I DO RECOMMEND taking the sample tests as this will help you determine your strengths and weaknesses allowing you to plan your studying accordingly.
