There are study guides to download from the Praxis Web Sites.....the essay
questions are pretty easy. Depending on which tests you have to take. One
is a process question, focusing on printmaking, papier mache and I had to do
a sample of a perspective drawing. The other questions ask you to respond to
some question in relation to your own artwork. The biggest mistake people
make is not dividing up the time appropriately. For the process
question...that should take about 5 minutes, the sample should take 5 minutes
and then spend 20 minutes on each essay. Also, practice writing at home.
Use the sample questions and time how long it takes you to write your essay.
Don't BS!!! hehe....and just write the business and get out! They are not
checking for grammer or spelling or handwriting...although they might be a
little distressed if were completely horrible!!!

But...all that said...got the the Praxis website and download the study
guides...there is one for each test. Also you need acrobat reader to open
the documents as they are PDF files!

Good Luck!!! Oh...take sample artwork that is easy to talk about...nothing
really abstract...or take something really conceptual that only you can talk
about...hehe
