I know why you feel the need to buy these books to help prepare for the test, but I can tell you, I really can't see too much of a need for them. The math test can be easily passed by simply reviewing the final lessons in a fifth grade math book, and basic "solve for X" algebra. Long multiplication, long division, ratios, precents and decimals... 3+2x=7...The reading portion is mainly about grasping the main idea of a paragraph.. I promise guys.. the test is NOT hard.
I have had many say this too, are they say just get this book
Pre-Nursing Reviews in Arithmetic
by Mary E. Stehman.
I am not too worried about the other parts to much , because I have taken american lit I and II and english Comp in college. I have also taken college algebra and stats, but its the basics u forget. When i firsts took TABE i scored a 12.9 on the reading and comprehension part and a 10.5 on math, studied for a week scored 12.9 on math so reviewing my weakness helped me. The TABE was mostly ratios, pecents, decimals and fraction,etc, i guess it simliar
The advisors at the school said that studying a ACT study guide would be ok too, i took that too, but that was gosh about 10 year ago, i score a 20 or 21,, which was considered real good back then, i dunno how it works now
Thanks for the advise girls!!
