    praxis 0014 and 0011

    This book is so worth the money!!!!! I have taken both 0011 and 0014 and it is really good for 0011. the dificulty of the questions in the workbook match the test. SOME OF TEH QUESTIONS WERE THE SAME ON THE TEST, except for name and number changes. I was so amazed as to how close to the test the practice questions were! 0011 and 0014 were a breeze bc of this book. Get it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Get This for the Elementary Education Tests

    I scored very high on the Elementary Education tests with this book. This book is better than the ETS books and any other book I have seen for the Elementary Education Tests. The tests are very realistic and all the questions and practice have explained answers. I liked taking the tests on the CD.

    Best I Found for PPST and Elementary Education Tests

    This is the best book I found for the PPST and the Elementary School Tests. The PPST cReviuew was fantastic and the PPST Practice Tests were like the ones I took. I took two of the Elementary Tests covered in this book and I was completely prepared for both of them. This is a much less expensive preparation and for me better preparation than the ETS books. One great things is the CD whvcih has all the review and lets you take the tests on your computer.

    Best One I Found

    This is the best Praxis book I found and I think I have seen them all. It has excellent test peparation and test taking tips. There are three ful length Elementary School tests in the book with full answer explanations. The book is fantastic but the CD alone would be reason enough to buy the book. The CD shows the wholc text and has computer delivered and self scored tests.

    Great for the Elementary School Assessments

    This book gives a better preparation for the Elementary School Test than the ETS book. The practice test was excellent with explained answers and the extra practice questions and review give even more chances to review. I was glad I got the book with the CD because it scores the tests for you and you can read the entire book on the CD.

    Excellent

    I got this book to prepare for the Praxis 1 tests. It was great. All the math help I needed was here and the practice tests were very good. Now I am using the book to prepare for an Elementary School tes. From what I have seen arounf the preparation in this book is much better than the other books which are more expensive. The CD in this book is also great. It has the entire book ont it and you can take all the paractice tests on the computer. The computer scores the tests for you. Based on my experience I would say this is the book to get
