PrAACtical Tips for Passing the SLP PRAXIS on the First Try, Part 3

The SLP PRAXIS Exam: No big deal or VERY big deal? You’ll find graduate students and clinical fellows in each camp. Yes, there are lots of new grads who did well on it and swear that they hardly studied. We cheer loudly to welcome them to our ranks. There are others, however, who quietly regret not having gone the extra mile to prepare. We hate regrets, so our SLP PRAXIS prep posts are geared for those who want an extra measure of safety when they go in to take their exam.

In Part 1 and Part 2, we talked about getting prepared and setting a study schedule for the SLP PRAXIS. In this post, we wanted to share some resources that have been helpful to our students.

Online Flashcards

  • There are many sites that offer the ability for users to create flashcards, use them to study, and/or print for portability. Flashcard Exchange seems to have the greatest number of flashcard sets on SLP and audiology topics. It is free to use online but to print there is a one-time fee (about $20.00 when I signed up). To use on your mobile device, you may need the Quizard app (about $3.00 and has Android and Apple versions). Other flashcard sites include Flashcard Machine, Quizlet, Study Blue, and Study Stack. As with all online sources, caveat emptor. Keep that critical thinking cap tied neatly under your chin. (The person who made the flashcard set may not be as smart or diligent as you are.)

Practice Tests

Other Materials


Remember, life will be a little more hectic while you’re reviewing for the PRAXIS, but it won’t last forever. As my grandma used to say “If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over again?” SLP students, you are smart, hard-working, and dedicated. You can do this! Good luck!!

      So glad that it was helpful. The SLP has been revised since I first wrote this post, but much of the information is still applicable.
