    Is the Praxis 5001 hard to pass?

    While the Praxis 5001 is an elementary education test, the exam is rather large and complicated. First-time pass rates for many Praxis exams are less than 50%, so it’s very important you do not underestimate the test.

    The Praxis 5001 consists of four subtests which are timed and scored separately.

    1. Reading and Language Arts (5002) - 80 questions, 90 minutes
    2. Math (5003) - 50 questions, 65 minutes
    3. Social Studies (5004) - 60 questions, 60 minutes
    4. Science (5005) - 55 questions, 60 minutes

    Because the subtests are scored separately, you can pass all or some sections of the exam. If you pass some sections but not others, you can retake just the sections you were unsuccessful in. For example, if you pass the language arts and reading, the social studies, and the science sections, but fail the math section, you will just retake the math the next time around.

    This test can be difficult for new teachers because of their lack of experience in the classroom. The language arts and reading section is packed with teaching scenarios, and you’ll have to identify best practices for educating young readers. In addition, this test covers content you may not have studied since you were in elementary and middle school. For example, in the social studies section, you’ll be asked about specifics on U.S. history, world history, and economics. In the science section, there are questions covering physical, earth and space, and life sciences. And while the math is considered elementary level, there are questions that cover algebra, geometry, and other complex concepts. Therefore, you’ll need to brush up on content you may have forgotten and skills you haven’t used in quite some time.

    But fear not! Our study guide covers it all.

    How many questions do I have to get right to pass the Praxis 5001?

    It is difficult to predict exactly how many questions you must get correct to pass the Praxis 5001 because a scale score is used rather than a raw score. This means that your raw score–the number of questions you get correct–is put into a formula to calculate a scale score.

    To keep things simple, we recommend scoring at least a 75% on the practice tests before you go in to take the exam. Getting 75% of the questions correct when you practice indicates you are ready to take the actual test.

    Remember, each section of the exam is scored separately.

    Does the study guide have the same questions as the real exam?

    While our study guide is aligned with the test, it is against testing policy to share items on the actual exam. State tests are secure, standardized, and heavily regulated.

    There are hundreds of test questions in the item banks for each exam. When you take the exam, your version of the test will be different from other versions and will have questions randomly pulled from the item banks. This ensures test security, validity, and reliability. Trying to memorize what you think will be on your test is an exercise in futility. Instead, you should study the skills and content outlined in the specifications and blueprint of the exam.

    Everything in our study guide is aligned with the test specifications and blueprint for the exam. That way, you can review how the test is designed and what skills are assessed. In fact, the questions in our study guide are structured similarly to what you will encounter on test day.

    Is this the best study guide for the Praxis Elementary Education 5001?

    Obviously, we believe our study guide is the very best resource you can purchase to prepare for the Praxis 5001. Our Praxis 5001 test prep is 100% aligned with the exam. The book is sectioned out by subtest, and within those subtests we’ve aligned all of the information with the test specifications and blueprint. This ensures you are studying what you will see on test day–nothing more, nothing less.

    In each section, there are practice items that align specifically with the skills in that section, so you can practice with specific questions for each skill. In addition, we have detailed answer explanations for every question in our study guide. This ensures you understand why you got something correct or incorrect. Finally, our study guide contains 2-3, full-length practice tests with answer explanations at the end of each subtest. Therefore, you have hundreds of practice questions to work with.

    We sort every practice test question by test skill. This helps you identify the skills in which you are low, so you can go back and study those aspects of the study guide. Knowing what skill the questions assess is a huge benefit to your studies.

    The study guide is an amazing resource to help you pass the Praxis 5001. However, you might need more support in one or more areas. In that case, we have an online course packed full of video tutorials and extra practice. The online course includes the full digital study guide. If you need more support, you can check out our Praxis 5001 online course.Like the study guide, you can purchase the whole course or individual subtests.

    Does this study guide contain practice tests?

    Yes. There are two full-length practice tests at the end of each subtest in our study guide, and there are practice test questions scattered throughout the book. All of the questions are categorized by skill and contain detailed answer explanations.

    How long should I study for the Praxis Elementary Education 5001 study guide?

    People have a range of skill levels when it comes to this test, so it is difficult to predict exactly how or how long you should study. This is a very large exam that covers expansive content for each subtest. We recommend short, incremental practice over time. This is much better than cramming all of your studying into one or two weekends.

    We believe 20-30-minute study sessions over a 1-2 week period for each subtest is ideal. That means it will take you anywhere from 4-6 weeks in total to study for the entire exam. If you’re digging deep into the material, you’ll need time to dedicate to each subtest.

    If you really want to pass this test and move on in your career, it’s important to study everything in the study guide and apply that knowledge to scenarios on the test. This study guide will help you focus on the content you will see on test day.

    What can I teach by passing the Praxis Elementary Education 5001?

    States use the Praxis Elementary Education 5001 to certify their elementary teachers for grades K-6. However, every state has its own requirements for certification, so be sure to visit your state’s Department of Education website and find out exactly what you’re required to do before registering for the exam or buying materials.

    What other study guides should I combine this with?

    Most states that use Praxis 5001 exam also require prospective teachers to pass the Praxis Core and the Principles of Learning and Teaching (PLT).

    Finally, if you are seeking certification in special education or reading, you’ll be required to take additional exams for those areas.

    Depending on the state in which you are seeking certification, this will vary. That’s why it is extremely important you check with your state’s Department of Education before you purchase test prep materials to determine exactly what tests are required.

    Great Resource-Confusing at Times

    This was a wonderful study resource to prepare me for the Praxis exam. However, I did get confused at times by the sheer amount of typos that were in the book. Some of the typos actually confused me while learning pertinent information. For example, I was studying for the social studies exam and in the WW2 section there were two typos that were four sentences apart. One of them stated, "Germany invades Poland, marking the official beginning of WW1." When I first read it, I was confused because I was reading the timeline for WW2 not WW1. Four sentences after that, the book states, "The Japanese attack Pearly Harbor...". Despite these confusing typos, the book was a great resource and helped me a lot with narrowing down the information that I needed to look at for the exam.

    Very Helpful Resource

    I purchased the Praxis 5004 Social Studies Guide and found it very helpful. I passed the exam on my first try!


    This is helpful but there are typos (pg. 37 for example) and I think it could go further into explaining higher-level topics.

    Best study tool!

    The BEST study tool for the Praxis 5001 Exam!

    Just what I needed

    This is my second Kathleen Jasper purchase and I am not disappointed! I scored either above average or on the higher end of the average for each area. I was intimidated by the math section the most because I found the practice test to be difficult. However, I think it prepared me well for the real Praxis test which was simpler than I anticipated. This study guide is well worth the money.
