Post Praxis II Exam Needs To Understand Who Is In Charge…
by: Mark Robertsen

Do you know someone who is afraid of dogs? Maybe it’s you. One thing seems certain: dogs will gravitate toward the person who is silently (or loudly) shaking with fear. It’s a shame, because it only perpetuates the fear.

Welcome to the world of the Praxis II Test. Much like a German Shepherd, the Praxis Test invokes fear in thousands of test-takers. It may be an inanimate object, but somehow the test pounces on fear.

In order to make the most of our Praxis Test experience (which hopefully is a one-time adventure), we must show the test that we are in charge. The Praxis II Test is merely the gate we must pass through to do the real work: teaching. We’ve been waiting for that opportunity for a long time.

How do we get ready? Let’s take a look.

Gain Confidence

The Praxis II Test is nothing more than a demonstration of your expertise. That’s right, a demonstration. You have plenty of knowledge to share with the world – this is your time to prove it.

Your Praxis study period will reinforce what you already know. This stuff isn’t new, and it won’t be like those nasty ENG421 exams you’ve already mastered. You are the expert; the test is just a piece of paper. Think of the test as a cute little Chihuahua…no need for fear.

Remove Doubt

It’s normal for us to doubt ourselves in the face of a challenge. Don’t! The best way to remove doubt is through practice. The more we interact with dogs, the less we fear them. The more we use tools like Praxis study guides in our preparation, the less we will fear the test.

A proper Praxis study guide must include actual questions found on the test. As we read and answer actual questions during our Praxis study period, doubt quickly fades away. On test day, we will be full of hope -- not fear. The test won’t stand a chance.

Be Strong

Once you’ve put in the effort to complete your Praxis study period, you must keep going. Test day is not the time to second-guess yourself. Your training has been sufficient. You are smart enough and this test is nothing more than a way to demonstrate your abilities.

Be strong! Don’t let a single test bring you down…you’ve taken hundreds of tests before. This one will open the door to your teaching career. Plus, the creators of your Praxis study guide have been there before. Trust them. Trust yourself.

It’s Time

You are ready for this. Find a Praxis study program (like the one at that will increase your confidence, remove doubt, and give you strength. The Praxis II Test is nothing more than a poodle in a Rottweiler’s clothing…or something like that. Don’t let it sense any fear. You are the one in charge of your future.
