    Lee, I have not taken Praxis II science, but am interested in
    learning more about preparation for the test, also as well as
    the answers to your questions. I took the Colorado state
    assessment (PLACE) for Secondary Science recently and did not
    pass, even though I have 20+ credits in the sciences in
    college coursework. Based upon the info I got from the test
    publishers (a mini-report after the exam that shows how you
    did in subareas of the test) and my experience, I think I
    ultimately had trouble because I did not have any college
    courses specifically in Earth Science. I felt OK about most
    of the Bio and Chem. But I used a Praxis II prep book and I
    suspect that the Praxis II may have a wider diversity in the
    content of its questions, assuming the test booklet I used is
    actually representative of the content that is on the test.
    For me personally, I wish I'd had more exposure to more Earth
    Science content.
