# Preparing for the Placement Test

**Q. Is there a practice test I can take to prepare for the placement exam? **

A. Yes. In the ‘Math Placement’ section, students can choose ‘Practice Exams and Quizzes’ and find a practice test for both the MATH 1431 and MATH 1314/1330 placement exams. Keep in mind that the amount of time allowed on the practice tests is roughly twice the amount of time allowed on the regular placement test.

**Q. How can I review my tests and determine the areas in which I need to improve? **

A. In the ‘Math Placement’ section, choose ‘Grade Book’ and then click on the magnifying glass icon next to the test you’d like to review. This will show you a copy of your graded test. At the top of the test, you will see a topic-by-topic breakdown of your scores.

**Q. How can I practice my skills in a specific area, such as Trigonometry? **

A. In the ‘Math Placement’ section, choose ‘Videos’ and select a topic that you would like to review. Each video is designed to give you a quick refresher (10-15 minutes) on a specific skill covered on the placement test. When you’re done watching a video, you can take a short quiz on the material by going to ‘Practice Exams and Quizzes’. These quizzes are only for practice and will not affect your math placement level.

**Q. I’d like to review my practice test with someone. Are there tutors available to help?**

A. Yes, online tutoring for the math placement test is available 5 days a week all summer long. In the ‘Math Placement’ section, you’ll find a link to the online tutoring classroom as well as the current tutoring schedule. Tutoring hours are typically held in the morning and/or evening, and students will be helped on a first-come, first-served basis.
