|To The Student: A Must Read|
|Congratulations!!!! You are about to begin college, a new and exciting time in your life. You are preparing to take the COMPASSï¿½“, an untimed test that is designed to properly place you in college. In math you will be asked questions in five areas: numerical skills and pre-algebra, college algebra (pre-calculus), geometry, and trigonometry. The COMPASSï¿½“ has seven suggestions on its website. Here is my own list|
|Relax! It is important to come to the exam well-rested. I suggest you do not study the day before the test. Last-minute cramming rarely helps and usually hurts|
|Get a good nightï¿½ï¿½ï¿½s sleep before the test. Eat a good breakfast. Get to the test early so you are in a good frame of mind. If you are a slow starter, practice a few easy math problems before the test—any problems. Dress comfortably. Make sure you bring everything you need including an acceptable fully-charged calculator. Bring a light snack to keep up your energy|
|Be sure you understand the directions. Ask if you do not|
|Since this test is untimed, read a question over until you understand it|
|You should answer every item since you are not penalized for wrong guessing. Since the test is computer adaptive, you must answer every question|
|Donï¿½ï¿½ï¿½t be afraid to change an answer. However, I believe you should change an answer only if you are 100% (not 99%) sure the new answer is correct. I will use me as an example. The last math test I ever took I changed two answers. The first one I must have misread. I was 100% sure the new answer was correct and it was. The other I wasnï¿½ï¿½ï¿½t sure, and changed a correct answer to a wrong one!!!!|
|If you have a problem or question during the test, ask the administrator or proctor to help, remembering they cannot answer the question for you. All of the questions on the test are multiple-choice. In the book some of the questions are not. Why? Sometimes you can figure out an answer from the choices. You want to practice so that you really know the material. You may find this book is more than a test prep. This book actually reviews most of the topics needed for pre-calculus and calculus. If you have any weaknesses, this book will really help to correct them. You may find some topics written in ways to clear up problems you had or didnï¿½ï¿½ï¿½t know you had in high school math. Good luck in college and in your future! Bob Miller|
