    That depends very heavily, I suspect, on which state's tests you're taking. Without discussing the quality of the books per se, I can tell you that the usability of a given book for a given test varies from test taker to test taker. My joke about Cliffs teacher-test books is true of everyone else's test prep materials (including my own): some people swear by 'em, and some people swear at 'em.

    That is what I see on the Amazon reviews.
    But the reviews are either this book is crap or this book was delivered by Archangel Michael.

    Sure, because the people in between just use 'em and go on with their lives; they're neither ticked enough nor tickled enough to bother publishing a reaction.

    I've used the xam online books and felt that they were very helpful> I eventually passed my teacher certification test just reading the xam online book.

    I wouldn't recommend the practice test questions.. I probably would go to another source- but the information in the book was phenominal becuse it covered every aspect of the praxis exam. I felt very satisfied with my results.

    Teacher Girl,

    I would agree with you. The test questions were highly disappointing.
