Step 1: The Basics

  • Start here and create an account at ETS.
  • Many students use the Norwalk facility to test. The zip code is 06851 and the location is on Westport Avenue, just beyond Stew Leonard’s.
  • Some test from home. You will need to download an add-on called ProctorU.
  • Be sure to follow the directions and use a PC. Many new times are offered for your convenience.
  • Don’t forget to refer to your handbook timeline! You must take Praxis by a certain point.


Step 2: Start Planning and Staying Calm

  • Take great notes in class. Many content areas covered will appear on your tests.
  • There are free materials for you to study; many PDF guides and checklists of content are available to you on the website
  • Consider creating a study plan. Students typically study 2-4 times per week, for 6-12 weeks, depending on the content review needed.
  • Use the Pomodoro technique; study in 25 minutes intervals. It is a medical school technique that is very effective. The WCSU Business School uses it too!
  • Relax using Theta waves as you study. Hearing these can maximize your memory and minimize your stress level.


Step 3: Gather Resources and Study!
