The Praxis™ is a proficiency test taken by aspiring teachers in the United States. There are three different levels of the Praxis™. The first is taken by aspiring education students before they are admitted into education programs, while the second and third are given to education students before they practice as student teachers and before their first professional year. Praxis™ software is any kind of computer program that aspiring teachers use to prepare for the exam so they can earn higher scores. The most common types of Praxis™ software are programs that offer practice tests and software that offers tutorials.

One of the most commonly used types of Praxis™ software is the practice test. This is an exam that students can score themselves and which is often made up of questions from past tests and questions that might be quite similar to those a student can expect to find on the real exam. One of greatest advantages to using this kind of software is that it gives an individual a chance to see how the test looks and what kind of material is tested. This can help a student to better direct exam preparation and can also lower stress levels prior to taking the exam.

Many experts believe that practice tests on Praxis™ software are also a great way to increase scores. An individual's test score is thought to rise each time he or she takes a test by increasing exposure to test topics. Taking a practice test several times can drastically improve your score on the actual exam.

Many kinds of Praxis™ software offer tutorials and guided coaching. Individuals who are studying for the Praxis™ I may find that the best kind of software provides them with a basic overview of the sections. A student who is studying for the Praxis™ II, on the other hand, may need to purchase a more specialized kind of software. The second Praxis™ exam is dependent on a student's concentration, meaning that an aspiring math teacher needs software that focuses on mathematical principles, while an aspiring art teacher needs a tutorial on art history and processes.

Praxis™ software can often be accessed online. Programs may be available to downloaded for free or for minimal costs. Individuals who are considering downloading software from the Internet should make sure that they are getting programs from reliable sites so as to avoid viruses and malware. Software may also be purchased from retailers such as bookstores and education stores. In some cases, software may come on a CD-ROMs that are packaged with Praxis™ prep books.
