Has anyone taken the math placement exam yet? I'm wondering what it's like, what's on it, how difficult it is, is it timed, etc? What does the math placement exam determine?

182Junior Member100Junior Member100Junior Member332Member4,326Senior MemberHere is more info regarding the sequence of Math courses, etc. This is a subject that always generates a LOT of questions at orientation; it helps if you understand what the different math sequences are. You can always take a lower math course than they recommend, and you can decide whether you want to retake a math course if you have AP credit....

244Junior MemberThe only thing this test does is place you out of basic algebra and trig stuff. So if you got a 4 or 5 in AP Calc AB/BC, credit for the class(es) will be applied if your Math Placement score shows satisfactory knowledge through trig (precalc).

26New MemberIf you have finished precalculus, or to be safe i would say calculus ab in high school, i think the test should be pretty easy for you.

Please correct me if I am wrong, thanks:D
