You can prepare for the test by reviewing reading comprehension, sentence skills and mathematics practice questions and review sites.
This test is unlike the MCAS; therefore, reviewing sample test questions to become familiar with the test will help you perform better.
This test measures a student's ability to understand what is read.
Take the Reading Comprehension Sample Test
This test measures a student's understanding of sentence structure, how sentences are put together and what makes a sentence complete and clear.
Take the Sentence Skills Sample Test
The math test consists of two parts. The Elementary Algebra Test is given first. Students scoring well on that test will be given the College Level Math Test. Students scoring lower in elementary algebra will be given the Arithmetic Test.
Take the Mathematics Sample Test
The Accuplacer Student Website explains the test and has sample questions. Please note: BHCC does not use the Writeplacer test. Visit the Accuplacer Student Website.
