The Praxis Interactive Practice Tests (IPTs) are full-length practice tests that allow you to answer one set of test questions to simulate what you will experience on the actual day of the test. Practice using authentic test questions and, after completing the test, view your results by content category along with the correct answers and explanations for each correct answer. Each interactive practice test consists of a single set of practice questions, and is available for 90 days from initial use, or up to 10 total uses. Each time you take the practice test, you answer the same questions in the same order. Purchasing more than one interactive practice test per title does not give you additional practice questions.

The best preparation for taking a subject area test should be the knowledge and experience you gained through related courses taken as part of your teacher preparation program. You may benefit from reviewing your notes and textbooks from past course work, especially content that is outlined in the "Learn About Your Test" section of the Study Companion. Review your score report for information regarding specific content areas where you should focus your study efforts. You might also consider asking a mentor or professor to discuss the sample questions in the Study Companion or forming a study group with other examinees.
