Choose Math, then it will begin the test. Plan to work about 20 minutes, and then take a break. It is a long test, and you don’t need to do it all at once. When you need a break, take one! Use paper and pencil, or your dry erase board to work out problems as needed. Make sure you do you very best, but don’t get outside help, or your results won’t be accurate and you won't get lessons that are right for you. This test needs to be done by 3:30 on Friday.
