Re: Chemistry Praxis II Exam

    I took the 2 tests last year. I took a refresher gen chem
    course at a community college first because I had been away
    from teaching chem for about 10 years and was glad I did. As
    a recent grad you should be fine, as long as you carefully
    review labs (MgO standard crucible lab, one hydrate problem,
    I believe), do lots of practice problems and review basic
    lab equipment. There were a few bio-related chem questions
    (DNA, etc) and some environmentally related ones (acid
    rain). There were maybe 1 or 2 questions from the Praxis II
    study guide. Do NOT take the exams at Yale. They are
    extremely disorganized!! Good luck! You should have no
    problem getting a job. Look now. There are some posted on
    CTREAP.NET already. Rob
