REA’s PRAXIS PPST Test Prep Gets Teachers Certified and in the Classroom!

Updated 7th Edition!

Nationwide, more than 5 million teachers will be needed over the next decade, and all must take appropriate tests to be licensed. REA gets you ready for your teaching career with our outstanding library of Teacher Certification test preps!

Scoring well on the PRAXIS PPST (Pre-Professional Skills Test) doesn’t just help you get certified to teach, it helps move your career forward! REA’s updated seventh edition of our bestselling PRAXIS PPST test prep shows you how to score high and get certified!

Completely up-to-date and fully aligned with the latest paper-based and computer-based test specifications, our in-depth review chapters cover all the material tested on the three Pre-Professional Skills Assessments: Reading Comprehension, Mathematics, and Writing. Drills and practice exercises in each chapter reinforce what you’ve learned as you study.

Four full-length, multiple-choice practice tests in the book help you test your knowledge and focus on areas in need of improvement.

Our practice tests replicate the PRAXIS question format, allowing you to assess your skills and gauge your test-readiness.

Every practice exam comes with detailed feedback on every question. We don’t just say which answers are right—we explain why the other answer choices are wrong—so you’ll be prepared on test day. Our detailed explanations of answers let you identify strengths and weaknesses while building your skills.

This complete test prep package comes with a customized study schedule and REA’s test-taking strategies and tips.
