    Wow! This study guide was super helpful and helped me focus my studies on what really mattered! I love how everything is easy to read and color coded! Definitely would recommend this for anyone studying for the Praxis. I think this is just a great resource to have to brush up on certain topics when practicing as well!

  11. Brittany D.

    Not only was it well organized, but the practice questions were great for preparing for the PRAXIS

  12. Michaela N.

    Very helpful for studying for the Praxis! Just took it this afternoon and passed (190/200).
    (Some background: This study guide was my main source of material, didn’t buy any official books or anything. Studied with it for about 3 months, along with another shorter, less detailed study guide and some ETS practice exam questions on Quizlet.)

  13. Marina S.

    This was an AMAZING layout for a study guide to help prepare me for the Praxis!! It was a general overview for quick studying, while also allowing me to see which areas I needed to study with additional information. THANK YOU!!

  14. Speechie Street

    What an incredible resource. I bought two different Praxis guides, this is definitely my favorite.

  15. Allison G.

    This was a great supplemental study guide to help me organize all the key information!

  16. PeachySpeechie1

    A great resource that is organized, appealing to the eye, and easy to read! I will definitely be using this to study!

  17. Engaging Firsties

    This is a great, comprehensive study guide!

  18. Hailey Wilson

    Seriously THE BEST resource! I recommended it to everyone in my cohort and we all loved it and passed 🙂

  19. Ellen Elisabeth T.

    I so needed this review, thank you ?

  20. Melissa Luces

    Great resource and very thorough. It helped me study and pass the Praxis on my first try! Thank you!

  21. Mykiah C.

    I used this as a supplementary resource for the Praxis, and I passed on my first attempt. This is a great resource and worth the money!

  22. Dyslexomania

    Such a comprehensive and easy-to-understand study guide. I really needed a quick refresher on pediatric speech and language development. Thanks once again!

  23. Tonya S

    Wonderful resource!

  24. Haley J.

    this is the best resource ive found so far! thank you so much!

  25. Kathleen Acord

    WOW. Don’t even hesitate on this one. I printed it all and put it in a binder with sheet protectors and I know I’ll be using this past graduate school. It’s the prettiest guide I’ve ever seen and I get excited to open it and study?? Thank you, you are my idol for making this.

  26. Jessica B.

    Awesome resource. thank you!!

  27. Mallory S.

    Love this study guide. I printed the whole thing out (yes, all 100+ pages), put each page in a sheet protector, and now have the perfect binder to study for the Praxis. I do wish there were more treatment recommendations, though. I feel confident in my ability to diagnose all the areas included; however, differentiating between similar diseases/disorders would have been very helpful, as well as the treatment options for each disease/disorder listed.

  29. Stephanie S.

    This study guide has changed the way I studied for my praxis! I love how colorful and organized it is. Must buy!!!

  30. Morgan L.

    I loved how organized this review guide was – it was comprehensive and easy to understand and follow.

  31. Madison H.

    I love it! It has been super helpful and really sums up information for me!

  32. Madison H.

    Great study guide for preparing for the praxis.

  33. Elisabeth A.

    I love how clean and organized all the material is. I learn best from charts so this was an extremely useful way to study for the praxis! Definitely keeping these as a way to refresh information later down the road.

  34. Megan K.

    great resource!

  35. Andrea H.

    I used this to study for the PRAXIS and loved all the images and easy to read graphics. It must have worked, I passed on the first try. 🙂

  36. Speechie Jessika

    I used this resource and a couple other resources and passed the Praxis on the first try! This provided a very easy visual of all of the information. I definitely think it’s important to supplement this with other information as this provides more key points and not always all of the details. If you are a visual learner this is a must!

  37. Breanna Thompson

    Love this resource! I’m using it right now to study for the PRAXIS, but I’m also excited to keep it on hand for quick references in the future as well.

  38. Julia C.

    This study guide is extremely detailed!! This is the most helpful AFFORDABLE Praxis resource I have found! I love the new update and the deep dive it does into anatomy.

  39. Shannon A.

    It was not as detailed as I expected from the other reviews.

  40. Ashley K.

    I would highly recommend this resource. I used it consistently throughout my studying for both the Praxis and our university comprehensive exams. It was laid out in an organized way, easy navigation, and essential elements necessary to show competency in all of the ASHA Big 9 areas.

  41. Gemma D.

    As an Australian studying for the SLP Praxis this really helped me learn the information which is different to what we have been taught over here. I passed first try!!

  42. Chantel L.

    This resource is beautifully laid out and has great information. I am so glad I got this resource and feel that it is a great preparation tool for the praxis!

  43. It’s Just Speechie

    Used a great study guide to help enhance the material learned in my grad classes.

  44. Yarely R.

    I passed my praxis with flying colors. This guide is nice to REVIEW those concepts you struggle with (i.e., CP, AU, syndromes, etc). It is color-coded and easy to follow. It even comes with a log, to help you track your studying. Thank you so much!

  45. Jixi L.

    This was such a nice way to include so much information. I’m easily overwhelmed by big books which is why I chose this instead of the big, paper praxis review books. The only issues I had with it were some typos and acronyms that were not stated in parenthesis. But the pdf was recently updated so I bet those changes were made!

  46. Katriona H.

    This was a great way to help me study for the Praxis.. it was so useful & organized the information very nicely!

  47. Melinda Y.

    Great for preparing for the praxis! The practice test shows my areas of weakness and has helped me have a more focused approach to studying. I am using it along with other materials. Will update once I take the exam!

  48. Megan C.

    This is AMAZING! So happy I purchased this study guide. Not only will this help organize my studying, I can’t wait to keep this in my office one day to continue using as a reference. This is a must have, and it’s beautifully done.

  49. Mashaye W.

    Great visuals and super helpful resource.

  50. Kenna’s Corner

    This helped me to pass the praxis!

  51. Amanda R.

    This is an extremely helpful and comprehensive resource to study for comps and the praxis! The information is presented nicely w/ charts, pictures, and color codes. The practice test was an awesome added bonus! Thank you!

  52. Katlyn C.

    I love this handy little study guide and it has been worth every penny! I have found a few typos along the way, but aside from this it seems very comprehensive and I love the visuals to back up the information. I printed the guide in a half-page size and then cut papers in half to save on ink, but everything is still perfectly readable and now small enough for me to take anywhere when I want to study outside of my home!

  53. Yvette S.

    My goodness what an amazing resource!! I already know it’s going to be so incredibly helpful when studying for the praxis. I’ve been using it as a resource in grad school as well!

  54. Natalia M.

    This is a great resource to have. I love how all of the information is displayed (colorful charts, diagrams for anatomy and physiology etc). Great resource to have to pass the praxis.

  55. Fonami

    This is a great resource to have. I love how the information is organized, I’ll give the praxis exam soon and this resource will be my principal study guide!!

  56. Amanda B.

    I used this, along with some class notes and practice tests to prepare for the Praxis and I passed on my first try!! Love how well organized this is. I printed the entire thing out, and placed it in a nice binder. I intend on keeping it and using it for quick reference as I enter my CFY 🙂

  57. Haley M.

    This was so helpful for prepping for the PRAXIS! I would recommend to any future SLPs to have a guide for studying.

  58. DJ E.

    This is a very organized resource to use when studying for the Praxis. I had printed the earlier version, but just saw the updated version and printed that too. It is easy to understand and formatted well.

  59. Lolene S.

    I used this study guide and took ETS practice tests to study for the PRAXIS, got a 190! Higher than others in my cohort who bought the fancy advanced review study book for over 100$
