This is a timely and affordable study guide for the PRAXIS 5001 teacher certification test. Testing of new standards begins August 2015. This is the only product on the market that has EXPANDED, aligned content and a full sample test with answer explanations. Many states -- but not all -- that formerly required 5031 have adopted test 5001. Changes include almost doubling the coverage of content. The skills have expanded in ELA and math. The test formerly had 210 questions and now has 235 questions. The number of social science questions will be reduced by ten questions. This product provides a highway to success, quickly and efficiently gathering more content succinctly, including each of the four subtests, aligned expanded descriptive statements, with their corresponding numerous and authoritative examples. Since Praxis 5001 is an unusually long test, it is in the candidate s best interest to augment this study guide with our additional suite of digital products which include interactive bundled tests that are comprised of questions from three tests, that include time on question as well as time on test. By contrast, this product is not a broad review of subtests with generic videos or generic categories clustered under subtests, because it defeats the purpose of PRAXIS specificity. Our sample test questions are aligned to specific skills. In conclusion, this product is unique because of its specific content, unpacked deliberately, with standards-aligned sample test questions and explanations. Common Core standards have been added."
