We’re here to help you get in the classroom! Start your journey by taking our free Praxis®️ Core: Reading (5713) practice test.
We’ve taken the guesswork out of what to study. Our guides are aligned to the exact standards of the official Praxis® exam and structured so you build on the concepts you need to know. Use the “search” feature to see where any particular standard appears within the guide.
Study Guides are organized into learning modules and then smaller sections that include instructional content and videos, flash cards, and quizzes. Explanations are provided for each of the choices, so you understand why an answer is correct.
Each study guide comes equipped with full-length practice tests. Full of authentic and test-aligned questions, these practice tests mimic the test day experience to ensure you arrive on test day ready to pass!

While the Praxis® Core tests basic knowledge, in theory, it can be difficult, and pass rates vary by state. Effective preparation is the best way to ensure you pass.

Our professionalism, patience, and people-first attitude are available to you by phone and email, allowing you to connect with us.
The Praxis®️ Core is graded on a curve. Each question you answer correctly is worth one “raw” point. So all the questions you answer correctly equals your “raw” score. Your “raw” score is then scaled- which means that ETS looks at how everyone else answered the same questions and then “scales” your score.
This means that if you have an easy set of questions that you and everyone else scores very high on, the test will “scale” your score so that the passing percentage is equal (or fair) for people who get harder test questions.
This test does not include a scheduled break. If you choose to take an unscheduled break, your test clock will not stop, so it’s recommended that you use the restroom before or after your test. Long breaks are documented by test administrators, so do not take more than 5 to 10 minutes.
To pass the Praxis® Core, you must first understand what is on the exam and what you will be expected to know. The best way is to review the 240 Tutoring test breakdown materials and practice questions. Once you identify areas of weakness, you can begin targeting those areas with instructional content and practice questions.
The Praxis®️ Core can be difficult for a majority of test-takers. In general, if you do not meet the exemption requirements for your state, you should spend a significant amount of time preparing.
