Description 

Praise for the Second Edition from Amazon Reviewers:

“This is a great guide for the School Psychology Praxis exam. It is very comprehensive and covers content in a very easy-to-study way. The practice tests are great too.”

“I used this to pass the Praxis II on the first try with a 175! It was a great resource used to highlight what the test focuses on, and to narrow all the information. I also used the NASP website to supplement information in the book that I needed more information on. Good resource!!”

“Great reference book to help organize what you need to study for the PRAXIS. [S]traightforward and user friendly. Do not buy any other practice books, this is all you need along with resources from courses you have taken.”
