One of the lessons that emphasizes mastery of skill in the form of problem solving skills is Natural Sciences (IPA). These skills are included in the critical thinking aspect. The characteristics of junior high school (SMP) students who have begun to be able to think critically independently need to develop these skills in the future. Therefore, the study aimed to determine the profile of the problem solving skills of junior high school student in class VIII. The study method was descriptive using the subjects of class VIII students of SMP Negeri Sukabumi who were selected based on purposive sampling. The study instrument was 10 questions in description with 5 indicators (identifying problems, collecting data, establishing hypotheses, testing hypotheses and drawing conclusions) on the excretory system material. The supporting instrument was an interview sheet. Data analysis was carried out by calculating the average achievement score of the indicator student's problem-solving skills in the form of a percentage. The results showed the percentage of students' problem solving skills was 40.3% (categorized as less). Based on the interview, it was known that the students' lack of problem solving skills was due to the learning methods used had not yet practiced problem solving skills. The learning methods used are lectures, question and answer, and discussion. The problem solving skills can be improved by the teacher chooses learning methods that are able to train and develop these skills, one of those is the practicum method.
