How do I prepare for assessment testing?
Review preparation materials on the Assessment website before you take your assessment tests. The webpage includes sample questions, a video review program and web resources. We highly recommend the Accuplacer phone app and web based study guide found on the Assessment webpage.
If you would like face-to-face help to brush-up your math skills, we have math expert guides who can help you prepare for the math assessment. The assessment web page lists their hours and location. And remember: Do not walk in cold to assessment testing – the results are too important to take lightly. You can only test once every six months.
How do I get started?
The English, ESL, and math tests are free and no appointment is needed. Give yourself about 1 ½ hours to complete testing.
You may not need to test IF ...
If you have certain Advanced Placement scores, equivalent coursework completed at another college, or are college ready in English EAP, you may not have to take assessment testing. Consult the Assessment Center webpage for more details.
