The purpose of this research is to compare perceived problem solving skills of the trainee students who is bachelor of education and bachelor of faculty of science who got training education. The sample is 168 randomly chosen amongst trainee students graduated from faculty of education and science from Kocaeli University. As a means for data gathering "Problem Cozme Envanteri" developed by Heppner and Petersen (1982), adapted to Turkish by Sahin, Sahin and Heppner (1993) is used. In conclusion; as the trainee students' perceived problem solving skills vary significantly in favor of faculty of education (p<0.00, t=5.58), it don't significantly vary in gender (p>0.82 , t=0.23). Accordingly; the education given in faculty of science is suggested to be enriched with the activities that improve students' perceived problem solving skills.
