Hey everyone, I have a handful of handed-down Math 2 books, from 2013-2014.

I'm wondering if there have been any significant changes since then to the format of the test/types of questions asked?

Is it worth buying a new book?

(taking it June 3)

Thanks.

406MemberI got 8 wrong and that got me a 760. I just think these tests prove nothing if I am obviously excelling in calculus BC (they will tell from the 5 and from my grade in the class). Pre-calculus is not a very high-level math.

406Member406Member654MemberI never said it was easy. I was insinuating the exact opposite. My point to the OP was to prep your butt off, because it isn't an easy test. The group of kids that take the Math 2 subject test are typically all very good at math, so the group is self-selective.

It's a standardized test that colleges to compare kids from different areas of the country and world. That's all. And if you're excellent at BC, then you're very smart. If you've taken 8 practice tests, and studied your mistakes, then I'll bet you'll get an 800. Good luck.

I just took 4 practice tests and that seemed to do it.
