I signed up to take the PRAXIS 0043 English exam. I ordered this book thinking it would help. Delivery was prompt, but the problem is the book's content. For 0043, you're writing two essays. The questions are always the same. You can see the questions by downloading a free Test-At-A-Glance from the ETS website. The only difference is the material you'd be asked to respond to. You can use the suggested list on the free download or any high school reading list and practice writing from there. Even in this book, the practice test offered ten choices of works for response; only three were on their suggested reading list (which is noted as NOT being exhaustive). The section showing how sample essays are graded could be helpful, but out of a possible ten essays, for instance, only one is shown being graded, which doesn't much help you if you wrote on any of the other works. The student response section is fairly self-explanatory; just make sure you thoroughly respond to each part of the question. Overall, I was so bummed to have paid this much for a study guide, to have been made to believe that the guide is written by the ultimate authorities of the test, and to have discovered that it was a big waste.
