The PRAXIS Core Writing test has two parts: a set of selected-response (multiple-choice) questions and a section during which you will write two essays. While our practice questions, flashcards, and this study guide help you prepare for the questions, they also prepare you to actually write for the essay portion of the test. Additionally, this study guide contains a section at the end devoted entirely to the essays and preparation for them.
