It has been probably 20 years since I took my last science examination, and about 8 years since I was a science teacher, so I found the study guide helpful for recall of things that (1) I flat out forgot, (2) knew the concept but forgot the specifics (transcription and translation of DNA, for instance), and (3) things that have changed since I was invested. I power read "Secrets" from front to back, taking copious notes and annexing the internet when necessary, and managed to do pretty well on the Praxis examination. If you believe that by simply reading through the book that you will pass, I would suggest coming up with another strategy. Overall, it is a good start to get the juices flowing and the memory sparking.
I did find a few things a bit troubling. The arrangement is kind of all over the place. Yes, there is a flow from one science to another, but there is a real lack of strong transitions and constant repeating of the same information in different...
So boring that I would fall asleep reading it. On top of that, while they may have hit upon all the content you should study, it wasn't in a way that was useful for the exam itself. Saying you need to know about how molarity works and then having a paragraph explaining the concept isn't helpful. What you need to know is what kinds of questions about molarity will be on the exam. I passed the exam on my first try without getting more than the chemistry section of the book. Online sample exams along with a flash card app on my phone were they way I studied. Save your money and skip the books.
I've used this product before for other exams and I loved it. It's not too long and covers pretty much everything without all the unnecessary details. I really like how it's short and to the point. I also like how it is not complicated to understand the material being described in the book.
