To pass a teacher's certification exam, students should prepare by prioritizing their studying, managing their time well, using test preparation materials and practice exams and understanding the specifics of the exam. One example of a standardized certification teachers may be required to take is the Praxis, which is divided into the Praxis I and Praxis II. This exam is required by many states, as of 2015.
To pass the exam, students should manage their time well by setting aside a specific amount of time for studying each day and be choosing an exam date that allows for enough time to study. Teacher's certification exams, such as the Praxis, typically include several different subjects. If taking different sections of the exam on different days is allowed, consider taking the test during several days and studying for a few subjects at a time. It is also important to set aside time to learn more about the exam is structured, the types of questions asked, the amount of time allowed and the scoring process.
Prioritize studying so that more time is spent time is spent focusing on weak subject areas. However, stronger subjects should not be ignored because exams may require students to pass each section to pass the exam. Use test prep materials and practice exams to help go over material and practice how to take the exam.
