I took the Praxis Math Test this afternoon, and I left the exam in tears……….of JOY!!! The third time was the charm with the help of your book. Thanks so much!!! The first two times I took the exam, I studied ETS and other guides for several months only to fail by a few points both times. I only studied your book, “Praxis Made Easy,” for two weeks and earned a passing score of 174. SO HAPPY!!! I actually cried when my score popped up on the screen, the employees at the center were so happy for me, they knew this was my third time.

Thank you for all the help you have given my students and me.

Our scores from the most recent round of testing were superb. One student went from 134 before your text to 174 afterward. This book is magnificent!

My son raised his score 200 points! Thank you so much!

Sheila Matner

Now I understand those weird made-up problems that I always used to skip!

Brianna Johnson

I was in a cold sweat the whole time I took the SAT the first time. After working with your book, I was much more calm (still a little sweaty) and it really paid off. My 680 on the math will now give me the total I need to get into UVA!

Scott Winters

Your materials are the best! I passed the PRAXIS I Math test with a score of 176. I needed to make a 173 for the state requirements. I could not have done this without your book.

Cynthia P.

I took the test today and got a 185! I was pretty nervous before the test as my hands were shaking when I had to fill out the registration form, but my nervous energy got my mind working overtime. I couldn’t have done it without your material. Thank you.

Wayne G.

I took the Praxis I math exam at the beginning of this month and I passed. Most of the problems that came in the test were just like those in your book or practice tests. This book really helped me a lot.

Jeania A.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. For such a great book! I have taken the math section 4 times, and never passed. I found your book on the internet and guess what? I PASSED WITH A 175. I now am recommending your book to everyone that I know that are having problems with the math section. You give practical advice along with great hints on all the sections. Bless you.

Veronica C.

Hi Lynn, I just got back my results from the Praxis and I passed with flying colors!!!!!!! I got a 180. No guessing. Nothing. Those cute little tricks and refreshers in your book helped a lot. Thanks so much!! That Distance – Rate – Time triangle is still engraved in my brain.

Liz H.

As an English major, math is not my forte. Therefore, when I had to take the Praxis I math exam for my teacher certification, I panicked. While taking the exam last month, I panicked even more when I discovered most of the questions were nothing like the questions in Barrons’ and Kaplan’s practice books. Fortunately, a Google search led me to “Praxis Made Easy.” This workbook is truly math made easy! I took the exam yesterday and I, the person who is a sworn enemy of math, passed the exam with a 180!

Thank you, Lynn! Were it not for “Praxis Made Easy” I would be taking the Praxis I math exam again.

Mercedes H.

I just took the Praxis Math Exam for the 3rd time and got a 184! I am really excited. Everything was in your book and I can’t thank you enough for helping me through the test. The first time I took it, I think I got test anxiety. The second time I tripped up on square roots and exponents. This time I knew all the material and slam dunked it!

Michelle F.

I ordered your book last Tuesday I started studying it immediately I did all the practice problems as well as the practice tests you sent me. I am happy to report I raised my score from 169 to 173 which is passing here in South Carolina. I cannot thank you enough. I am 40 years old and am going back to school to get my teaching degree. I have not been in school in 20 years and I have forgotten most of the math I learned over the years. Your book actually taught me what I should know and took me to a more confident level with the problems. I do not believe I would have passed it the second time without your book. I simply did not know what I had done wrong on the first test and was at a lost at how to help myself. I had studied another book that helped but did not teach me. Thank You for helping me lift a weight off my shoulders.

Melinda T.

I just wanted to let you know I just got home from taking the Praxis and I passed the Math!!!!!!!!!! I got a 178 which was the minimum to pass but hey I PASSED!!!!!!!

Marie B.

Well I finally did it!!!!! 178. You have no idea how thankful I am for your materials. If I did not have them to study I don’t think I could have ever passed, thank you so much. I studied for 3 months this time and I reviewed and practiced so much, passing has taken such a HUGE burden off. Because I passed I can graduate on time, doing my practicum and student teaching this year and I am done. I felt like passing this test I can now move on with my career. I tell you what I was so worked up over passing the test that after I passed my husband wanted to go eat lunch and by the time we got home, I lost it all in the parking lot!! I have never been that tense over something in my whole life. Again, thank you for your help and your effort/work to help people pass this math section on Praxis.

Miranda E.

I just wanted to drop a note to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!! Your materials are a miracle tool for success! I have taken the praxis math portion three times before today (my 4th and final attempt). I purchased “Praxis Made Easy” on Friday and studied every page. I took the test on Monday and passed with an amazing score of 180!!!! (the first three times my scores were 169,168,167). I was getting worse as I went. I took a statistics class and received an A, and also recently took a Math for teachers course and received an A, but could not pass the Praxis. Your materials were inexpensive compared to the others out there and yours works!!!! It is so easy to follow and keeps you recalling the knowledge from each chapter. I owe you so much!!! Again THANK YOU!!!

P.S. I am recommending you to everyone I know!!!!!

HOLLY H.

I took the PRAXIS today and I passed the math, just barely, but I passed. I had only two weeks to study and only used your manual. There was math I hadn’t seen in 30 years! All of the time I had was used for the math. An hour here, an hour there, in between four kids needing something or another, the pool, camp, impromtu play groups, etc. You get my drift. If it were not for the clear and easy way you broke down problems, I know I would have had to take this exam again. Just the confidence to believe I could pass, was amazing. I’m going to use the manual as a back up when I have to break down homework problems for my kids. Thanks so much!!!!

Roxana C.

I just wanted to let you know that your book really made a difference in my life! I’ve been studying it diligently on nights and weekends since early November and just took my Praxis for the first time on December 7. I passed with a wonderful score of 183. I was so excited at the computerized score results that I could hardly stand up and kept shaking and laughing at the same time. It was a very draining experience and I am so glad that this is over.

Shirley K.

I purchased a copy of your “Praxis Made Easy” book and I cannot tell you just how much I am learning from it. This book deserves an award. I mean I have never had a Math book that was so comprehensible and I simply cannot believe how you cut through the Math mumbo-jumbo when it comes to the rules. I just love your 3-4-5 short cut for the Pythagorean theorem problems. I am going really slow with the book but having fun. My test is in April and because of you I know I will do well.

I would buy any Math book from you, you are a math genius. Keep up the good work.

Florence N.

I wanted to let you know how much Praxis Made Easy helped me pass the test. I had taken the test twice before. I decided not to take it again until I re-learned some math. A friend was taking a Praxis prep class at the University of Richmond and used some of your materials. I ordered a copy from you. I studied with a tutor since January and passed the test today. Thanks to you, I believe I can do math. I currently teach first grade and have many hands on math lessons for my students. I wish someone had told me earlier it is possible to love math. For the first time, I don’t break out in a cold sweat when I see fractions. Once again, thank you for writing the book and taking the mystery out of math.

Elizabeth L.

I finally passed that horrible test!!! I had a 170, I needed a 172 and I got a 178!!!! I never, ever in a million years thought that I would pass that test! I can’t believe it! If it weren’t for your study guide I don’t think that I ever would have passed it. I have always had trouble with math tests but now, I feel a little bit more confident! I can’t thank you enough! I can’t believe that after all the college and a masters degree they still aren’t satisfied. I feel like they had better go find some rocket scientists or something! Thank you, thank you thank you Lynn! It’s awful to think that a test like that can destroy so many lives? Thank God for you who writes and makes available your book. Honestly…I do not think that I could have passed that without you!!!! I cannot believe that they make such a hard test! I could see if it was for middle school math teachers or something but for K-2 special education teachers like me? Come on! I’ll bet some of these high up people who legislate these things be required couldn’t all pass them.

Jennifer D.

I just wanted to write you and thank you for writing “Praxis Made Easy” study guide. I am applying to become a TESOL teacher and with the scores I got I will get into the teaching program. The first time I wrote the Praxis Math (before I bought your book), I ran out of time and had to cancel my math score. After buying your guide, I sat down and did the exercises over and over again. When I wrote the

Praxis again in June, my score was 184! This is from someone who last set foot inside a high school math class in 1978. So, Dr. Gardner, thank you very, very much.

Cheryl H. (A future TESOL teacher)

I want to thank you so much for writing such a wonderful book! I have signed up for the Math Praxis AGAIN, and I have been feeling anxious. Then I saw your site, and loved the example page….so I ordered it on the spot! I take the test in Dec., so I have plenty of time to study. I’m only two points shy of passing and I believe this book will pull me through. I’ll keep you posted! Thanks again! Take care and God bless!

Hello Dr. Gardner,

We have been using your book entitled “Core” Math Made Easy and have had amazing results. You have provided students with a tool that is going viral. We had a student in our program who attended sessions for about three years and could not seem to get the math concepts. She purchased your book on her own and passed her Praxis Core Math test with a 184. That speaks volumes and I felt I had to give credit where credit is due, which is to YOU. Many of our students are now desiring to purchase your book.

Thank you for taking the time to meet a need and providing a resource to help students conquer a hurdle on their academic journey. Again, thank you.

Dr. Deborah P. Williams

We continue to use your wonderful book with great success. I require your Core Math Made Easy book for my online “Mathematics Skills for Teachers” Course. I also recommend your book to anyone who is getting ready to take the test. Thanks and I hope you continue to have much success with helping our students pass the tests!

I’m ordering more books because I cannot keep them in my office. Students find it so helpful, and I thank you for your fine work!

Dr. Jenny Martin

I have informed students that your book is available for purchase as I have been told by several of our students that it helped them pass the Core Math test. One student told me it raised her score by 40 points. Thank you again.

I have suggested your website and book for several of our students who were struggling to pass the Praxis Core Math. I can say that those who purchased the book and studied it, were successful on their very next attempt of the Math Core exam. They are telling their peers about it!

Dr. Henrietta Wright, Ph.D.

Your book has helped many of our Education majors clear the hurdle of PRAXIS Core. We use your book and the practices tests extensively in preparing our students for the test with good success (I say good since too many of them unfortunately come to us with extremely poor math preparation).

You seriously changed my life. I passed this morning with a score of 160. That is a 38 point difference in 21 days! Amazing. I was becoming depressed and almost gave up prior to someone telling me about your book. Peru State College in Nebraska will be buying your book and I am going to tell anyone that will listen to buy your book. The 8 practice tests really helped me out too. If I can ever do anything to help you sell more of your books let me know. The long dark cloud has been removed from my life finally!

John McDonald

Thank you so much for this book, I am a speech pathology major and I was super frustrated when I figured out I would have to take the praxis core. The first two times I took the math part of the test I received a score of 142 and then a 144. I remember being so frustrated after I failed both times, I was nearly inconsolable. I heavily considered changing my major and giving up because I have always been terrible at math. I would recommend this book to everyone I have tried a lot of the other prep materials from other companies and nothing even comes close in comparison. Your book is by far the best thing out there. My third time taking the test I received a 198 almost a perfect score and it is all because of your book.

This book is no joke, and if all the lessons and practice tests are completed and reviewed I can almost guarantee anyone a passing score.

Cassidy H.

Dr. Gardner,

I am just writing to thank you SOOOO much for the time you dedicated into making this book. I just took the test and passed it with a 160!! This was my third time taking it and I too couldn’t believe how difficult this test was for education majors. Math has never been my strong suit and I struggled with this test until I found your website. My scores had been a 130 and a 146. I was hesitant to purchase it and now wish I would have purchased it before my first Praxis exam. I will be recommending this book to every education major I know!! This book is COMPLETELY the reason I passed. To anyone struggling with the Praxis Math Core reading these testimonials: Definitely purchase this book! Anyway, thank you so much Dr. Gardner. I can tell you are a wonderful professor just from the way this book was written!!

Ashley

I am a student at Marymount University in Arlington, Virginia. Earlier this month I ordered your book Core Math Made Easy. After taking the Praxis Core Mathematics test twice this summer and not passing I decided to order your book. I completed the lessons and practice problems in the book through lesson four and completed one practice exam. Today I took the Praxis Core Mathematics test and passed! I would like to thank you for writing your book. I passed the test today and should be able to graduate next year as a teacher. Throughout my college years I have seen and heard of several students who have not been able to pass the Praxis and have dropped out of the education department or changed their major. Thanks once again!

Lupita

I just wanted to pass along to you that with the help of your study guide I was able to successfully pass the Praxis Core Math test-5732. I am an English major and have never found much success with math. I had previously taken the Praxis Core Math test three times, and my confidence was at an all-time low. Not passing the Praxis multiple times was setting me back financially and was pushing my graduation further away. Dr. Gardner’s study guide is worth the money if you invest time into studying.”

Matthew

Old Dominion University

Thank you so much for publishing this book! I am horrible at math and tests really are not my thing. I went over every lesson and took all the practice test (timing myself) and I passed on my first try with a 177. Practicing your material made me so confident taking the test. I just wanted to say thank you and I wish there was a book like this out there for reading and writing.

Danielle

I just received my praxis core scores and I am writing to let you know that I PASSED!!!!!! I got a score of 192! Cannot be happier, and can’t thank you enough! I think all I needed was some great time-saving techniques and I got the confidence I needed to take the test and pass! Thank you so much Dr. Gardner!

Paola

I just wanted to send you an email and let you know how great your study guide for the praxis core math test was! Before I used your study guide, I had already taken the math portion of the praxis two times. My score at that time was a 120. After using your study guide and studying all the sections and doing the quizzes, I felt so much more confident in taking the test. When I took the test, I knew the majority of the answers to the questions. The third time I took the test, my score was a 150, which is what is needed to pass the test! I went from a 124 to a 150 in one test all thanks to your study guide! I just wanted to send you an email and personally thank you for making that study guide. I strongly believe it’s the reason that I passed the test and am so thankful for it!

Jamie

I love the book. I took the test before seeing your book was available and failed by 8 points. I was very frustrated with the official practice test because it just didn’t cover a lot that was on the test, and it was just hard in general to find preparation materials. I just took it again and my score went from a 142 to a 192, and it was completely due to your book! You saved me!

Eric

Thank you so much! I just wanted to let you know that I used your Core Math Made Easy book and I passed the test… I am so excited to finally pass.

Shauna

I just checked online to see that my Praxis Core Math results is in for the test I took. I passed so well. I am very excited. Dr. Gardner, May God richly bless you for your time, commitment and dedication. Thank you so much

Frema

I am really enjoying the Praxis workbook. I am currently a teaching assistant who never thought she would discover a love for teaching at the ripe old age of 53. I all but threw my math skills to the wind and am now working like crazy to get it all back. So, I just want to say thank you for your work!

Gail

I just wanted to thank you for creating this workbook and let you know I passed! I’m an English instructor at a university and have decided to pursue a MAT. I have never been great at math and missed the math requirement in my state by a point. I bought your packet, and ten days later picked up nine points on the test!
