Take College Placement Tests
College Placement Tests are qualifying tests to determine the course of study for freshman students. It could possibly delay your progress if, for instance, you need to take an entry-level algebra class in your freshman year because you didn't do well in college placement tests. Often students don't do well because they haven't taken basic math and algebra classes since the 8th and 9th grades and have forgotten much of it by the time they take the college placement test. To improve your chances of placing well, review basic algebra and vocabulary skills before taking these tests.
