The practice exercises below were written to allow you to do well on the ACCUPLACER Mathematics Placement Test for potential placement into Math 96, Math 120, Math 124, Math 126, or Math 128. The indented links show detailed solutions and explanations of the concepts to the problems presented.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY:

- The questions on the Mathematics Placement Tests are multiple choice and will be presented to you on a computer screen. You will be given scratch paper by the Testing Center staff so that you can find the correct answer which you then have to mark on the computer screen!
- You are NOT allowed to use your own calculator. There is a calculator built into the ACCUPLACER testing software that will be displayed for certain questions. If you are caught using your own calculator where not expressly allowed, you will be penalized! See "Academic Dishonesty" policy.
- The placement tests are untimed. However, plan to be at the Testing Center for at least one (1) hour. Suggestion ... a longer stay and hard work will increase your chances of placing into your desired mathematics course.
