So a lot of people have told me that they'll be taking "placement exams" soon, and I don't really have a lot of information on what they really are.
So can someone give me some information on this? Is it a test that basically helps place you in a certain class (Level 100, or level 200, etc.), and for which subjects is it given out? For Math basically, is there just one type of Placement Test, or are there different Placement Tests for EACH and EVERY math course at a college (Calculus I, Calculus II, Statistics). Is there simply one test that covers the subject of "Math"?
Also, when are most of these given, and would we have to take them at the college we are going to, or can we simply take it somewhere and give in the scores to the college we are going to?
When are these usually given out, multiple times throughout the year, or am I too late??
