Before you come to the Assessment
Center in LR130, you
work on the Math Pre-test.pdf by going to
Assessment Preparation . Depending
on the number of correct answers (answers are provided at the bottom of
the test), you will be able to determine which test to take when you
come to the center. You will either take the Algebra Readiness, the
Elementary Algebra or the Intermediate Algebra test. The technicians
will ask you what test you are taking at the appropriate time.
It is only natural to
forget material that you don't need all the time. If you spend a few
hours refreshing the math that you learned a while ago, you might save
yourself a semester of being in the wrong class.
If you come
unprepared for the placement test, you might overestimate what you
remember. You could be placed in a class that is inappropriate or have to
take another test before your correct starting class can be determined.
Preparation can avoid all these problems! Use the time
between making your appointment and coming to the test to prepare!!!!
