Accuplacer Test Preparation

Accuplacer Tips:

  1. Get plenty of sleep and eat well in the week before your test. If you are overtired, you may have poor concentration and good nutrition allows for optimal performance.
  2. Arrive at the testing center 10 minutes prior to your appointed time. This will ensure you have plenty of time to get checked in and be well prepared.
  3. Accuplacer is meant to give an accurate measurement of your academic skills. It is not a pass/fail test.
  4. There is no time limit on Math and English tests, so you can focus on doing your best to demonstrate your skills.
  5. All Accuplacer tests are computerized using a multiple choice format. If you need accommodations for this exam, please address those needs when you make the appointment.
