To The Student: A Must ReadCongratulations!!!! You are about to begin college, a new and exciting time in yourlife. You are preparing to take the COMPASS®, an untimed test that is designed toproperly place you in college. In math you will be asked questions in five areas:numerical skills and pre-algebra, college algebra (pre-calculus), geometry, andtrigonometry.The COMPASS® has seven suggestions on its website. Here is my own list.1. Relax! It is important to come to the exam well-rested. I suggest you do notstudy the day before the test. Last-minute cramming rarely helps and usually hurts.2. Get a good night’s sleep before the test. Eat a good breakfast. Get to the testearly so you are in a good frame of mind. If you are a slow starter, practice a feweasy math problems before the test—any problems. Dress comfortably. Makesure you bring everything you need including an acceptable fully-chargedcalculator. Bring a light snack to keep up your energy.3. Be sure you understand the directions. Ask if you do not.4. Since this test is untimed, read a question over until you understand it.5. You should answer every item since you are not penalized for wrong guessing.Since the test is computer adaptive, you must answer every question.6. Don’t be afraid to change an answer. However, I believe you should change ananswer only if you are 100% (not 99%) sure the new answer is correct. I will useme as an example. The last math test I ever took I changed two answers. The firstone I must have misread. I was 100% sure the new answer was correct and itwas. The other I wasn’t sure, and changed a correct answer to a wrong one!!!!7. If you have a problem or question during the test, ask the administrator orproctor 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 thequestions 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 ofthe topics needed for pre-calculus and calculus. If you have any weaknesses, thisbook will really help to correct them. You may find some topics written in ways toclear up problems you had or didn’t know you had in high school math.Good luck in college and in your future!Bob Miller
