Placement Tests: What should I do?

I have placement test coming up on May 6th, and wanted to know if it is better to score high or average. I can probably get a pretty high grade, but I don't want to be sent to some insane calc class I won't have any clue about. Should I purposely get some wrong or something? On that note, how hard exactly is the test?

    Lol. I was actually thinking about that myself because my placement test happens to be this Friday, and I personally would rather place into an easy French class than a hard one. I don't know the facts, but my personal opinion is that you should try your best. If you get into really easy classes, you'd be bored out of your mind. More challenging classes may hold your interests. Language is an exception though. I'm still debating on that one...

    Yea-- you don't want to be placed into anything too easy, it will be boring.

    Anyway, I think that the math test only goes up to precalc-- the highest you can be placed is Calc 1 unless you have AP credit.

    And for french-- when I took it, the test was insanely hard (though i was not much of a francophone.) 3/4 of the room walked out and gave up, i placed into 131 (intermediate french).... yea but I'm not doing that haha forget french.

    Im taking spanish 101 now though.
