Ordering my Praxis 5161 Practice Tests & Q Banks
It may be smart to read About my Praxis 5161 Practice Tests & Q Banks before you order. This way, you know what to expect.
Another thing, if you look around youll find quite a few sites selling Praxis 5161 materials for as low as $20-30.
Credulous saps fall for those scams.
Because that's what they are.
Scam-artists offering Practice Tests written at the Middle-school Math level for a ridiculous price. Also, the same materials are re-packaged and sold under different titles. If youre relatively clueless [sorry for being so blunt...actually, not], you really believe youre getting a terrific value. $30?!
It's too good to be true!
Because it is.
The Qs are largely garbage.
And garbage attracts flies. (Sorry, got carried away there a bit! I dont know where I was going with that...)
More seriously, Ive examined those Qs very closely.
It's not a wonder that candidates that fall for those dubious offers end up having to take the Praxis 5161 over and over.
My materials are expensive. Im not in the least defensive about it.
In fact, Im bloody proud of their impeccable quality.
Because it's not easy devising clever Qs. Unique Qs. Those similar to those on the Praxis.
On the other hand, it is quite easy to contrive bogus Qs. Like those youd find in a textbook. Which is not how the Praxis 5161 Qs are. Not by a long shot.
Im invested in your success.
I dont do this for the money.
If my Practice Qs and Q Banks are (seemingly) costly, it's because youre mixing up COST and VALUE.
Youre focused on (immediate) cost. While Im offering you long-term value.
Master my Practice Tests and / or Q Banks, and youll think differently.
Youll become alive to Math concepts and smart tricks.
Now, if I cared only about making your wallet lighter, Id have the ADD TO CART buttons at the top of the page. Id already be saying ORDER NOW!
But I want to have a stern talk and give you a bit of tough love.
The thing is: the Praxis Math 5161 Exam is not easy.
Not by a long shot.
In California, candidates for the Single Subject Math credential take the CSET which is helpfully broken into 3 Subtests (Algebra & Number Theory; Geometry and Statistics; Calculus & Trigonometry). Lads and lasses can prepare by focusing on individual subtests / domains. Customarily, fellows spend 1-2 months preparing for each subtest. It's quite do-able.
The Praxis 5161 is a different beast: it's like all 3 subtests were rolled into one.
Virtually anything from the High School math curriculum is fair game.
And more!
I read about poor souls taking the Praxis 5161 Exam 4-5-6-7-8 times! What the deuce?!
Each Praxis costs $120.
Taking it multiple times puts you back by hundreds, even thousands of dollars.
And failure to pass Praxis 5161 puts you further back in your teaching credential program, student teaching and...stable employment with good benefits.
Remember what I said above about the distinction between Cost and Value? When you succumb to absurd and trifling Qs designed by scoundrels and pay $30 for them, yes, youre "saving" in the short-term.
But in the long-run?
Um, youre spending $120...and another $120 and yet another $120 on retaking the Praxis 5161.
But grasp this: simply taking the test over and over shant help you...IF your knowledge base is stagnant.
(No, that's not profound.)
It's like the SATs or GRE. Without dramatic improvements in your competency level, one's SAT scores fluctuate in a narrow band: they could go up by 20-30 points, even go down by 20-30 points! That's how these tests are designed.
Taking the test repeatedly with only marginal improvements to your content and skill knowledge shall only tell you over and over that you're yet unprepared. As a 15-year veteran Math teacher who has taught every single Math class in High School and very successfully might I add, let me assert that in school, students that re-take tests -- even the seemingly "bright" ones -- do almost as poorly as before if theyre not in the custom of doing consistent homework or really studying. Each year, I have blazingly smart albeit criminally lazy students...fail tests.
Because the only way to boost your scores is concentrated study.
Hit the books.
Master the requisite material.
Procure reliable study aids that give you authentic practice.
Dont trust snake-oil salesmen and charlatans and quacks that promise you a quick-fix!
Youll always be underprepared that way.
There is no elixir to passing the Praxis Math 5161.
Except old-fashioned hard-work. Practice. Lots of it.
Buckle down and basically master all areas of the High School Math syllabus.
Get proper resources -- books, study materials -- and work systematically.
In general, the Praxis Math 5161 demands subject matter knowledge and competence at the High School level: excellent Precalculus-level algebraic skills (and slightly beyond), a robust grasp of Geometry, and command of intermediate-level (but not terribly advanced) Statistics, Trigonometry and Calculus, more mile-wide and inch-deep. Unfortunately, that requires candidates -- especially non-Math majors and career switchers -- to simply buckle down, procure resources and study materials, and commit to studying High School math. There are no short-cuts.
Because theoretically -- even if new teachers are customarily lower-level classes like Algebra 1 and Geometry or Integrated Math 1 and 2 -- one is expected to be able to handle sophisticated Qs and offer enrichment in their curriculum: preview advanced material and engage intelligently with students.
There are those mathematically adept and analytically strong who "get it" the 1st time around, there's no problem there. But there are others less so who have to look at a problem and think deeply about it, who need more time, who have only a rudimentary understanding of concepts, who are otherwise very strongly motivated and determined to learn and eager to teach students of similar calibre and would make terrific teachers otherwise. [Hire for attitude, train for skill!] They need more guidance and more practice at the vulnerable moment of test preparation. This site was especially designed with them in mind. Also, for those who want to be certain that they have become jedis of the concepts and skills needed to excel on the Praxis 5161 Exam.
If, after reading all that, youre ready to order, go right ahead. And I wish you well.
