I took the Math Prep Corse and the exam in March 2017. The prep corse was great it helped to refresh my memory on fractions, ratios and proportions.
The prep corse goes over adding and subtracting of decimals, converting percents, fractions (adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing), and roman numerals. Things you also need to know (because it was not gone over in the math prep corse) absolute value, square routes, intergers, exponents, and PEMDAS (parentheses, exponents, multiplication, division, addition, subtraction).
The Math portion of the test was 24 minutes for 40 questions. The time given is a little intimidating, but the questions are straight forward. There aren't any word problems or anything like that. For example: 256.8 + 6352.9= that is what the questions will look like. The reading portion of the test was good not too boring, and the questions were also straight forward. You are given 50 minutes for 50 questions. There were a few questions that involved maps and following directions. There was also a few short stories, poems, and plays that you had to read and answer questions for.
I did pass the entrance exam. The scores took about 2 weeks (longest 2 weeks of my life), it came in a regular envelope with my scores, application, and all the steps you need to take to secure your seat in the 2017-2018 PN Program at VEEB. The score that I received on the reading was 12.9, and on the math I received 11.5.
P.S. What I used to study the math was youtube, search Khan Academy then the subject. For the reading, I searched google for GED Reading Compression test prep.
I hope that this is helpful to you!! good luck everybody!!
