The Praxis exam requirement is different for each state and for what your specific field in education will be. I didn't think it was that bad. I had to take the Core Battery and then one for my area of concentration. I passed the first time for each. I do know people who have taken it several times and have not passed it.
In my state, student teaching is typically done the last semester of college. I am a cooperating teacher and have had several student teachers in my classroom.
As for subbing, yes, go ahead and apply to sub, but be aware of some possible drawbacks. Sometimes subbing gives the district a great idea of what you are like and if they want to hire you. Sometimes they like you too much as a sub and don't want to lose you as such and therefore they do not hire you full time.
