There are 25 questions in this Practice test (and 25 questions in the final test). 2. There are five alternative answers marked A, B, C, D and E for every question. 3. Every question has only ONE correct answer. 4. Enter your answer selection on the answer sheet provided next to the question number. Example: Question 1. 4 + 3 = A. 8 B. 6 C. 9 D. 7 E. 5 The correct answer is 7 which is printed next to D . Enter ‘D’ on the Answer Sheet next to ‘Question 1’ as follows: Question 1. D Question 2. 5. Make sure you mark your answer against the corresponding question on the answer sheet provided, especially if you skip between questions. 6. Give yourself 30 minutes to complete the Practice Test (as there are 30 minutes in the final test). We suggest setting up a test environment and timing yourself so it’s similar to the final test. 7. Do not waste time if you do not know the answer. Move on to the next question and if you have time at the end of the test, go back to the questions you skipped. 8. Work as quickly and accurately as you can. 9. We strongly recommend using a silent, battery-operated, non-programmable scientific calculator. To obtain an accurate result, no other resource or device should be used for this Practice test. 10. Formulae are provided at the start of the Practice test (and in the final test booklet). 11. Diagrams are not necessarily drawn to scale. 12. After you finish the test, use the Answer Key provided to check your answers. 13. The score you achieve on the Practice test is an indication only of how you may perform on the final test. 14. The Practice test score cannot be used in place of sitting the final test. 15. The topics listed on the Answer Key can give you an indication of the areas you can improve.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
