Who else is taking/has already taken the ALEKS math placement exam?

If any of you have taken it, is the test timed? Also, can you skip questions and go back to them? Can you do it in multiple sittings or once you start it do you have to complete it?

    I took it. I don't think you can skip questions and go back to them. The test times how long it took you to complete it, but there isn't any time limit or anything.

    Yup, and you can do it in multiple sittings too. You can log off and when you log back on, it goes to the last question you were working on. It covers the material you should've learned in a pre-calculus class: functions, conic sections, asymptotes, trig, etc.

    Not timed, can't return to questions, can log out and log in to work over multiple sittings. Dunno how helpful it would be at this point, though... only today and tomorrow left to do it!
