    Is anyone else applying to this program? The application deadline is July 15. I am planning to apply - now trying to figure out how I can take the prerequisites in time!

    I'm applying to the same cohort too! I'm taking Bio/Chem right now and will take A&P 1 in Summer Session 2. My biology class ends on 4/15 so after that, all my energy will go into Accuplacer.

    What are you using to prepare for accuplacer's reading and sentencing portions? I don't find any materials out there specifically for Accuplacer.

    If you do not have to, I would not take AP during a summer session! It is a TON of information to squeeze into 5 weeks!

    As of right now I have just been taking practice tests.

    hi cally527-

    I agree that 5 weeks will be super intense. But I will go full time by then so it should be fine. I want to get AP1 out of the way so I can take AP2 in the fall. I also plan to apply to other places so having AP1 done will be a lot better.

    Where do you find accuplacer practice tests? I found some that aren't really official. I know there are apps for iphone/ipad but I don't have either one of those gadgets.

    I have used a couple of different sites.

    Also I have an old textbook from my Freshman year english class that has sentence structure. I plan to review that before I take the test as well.

    Hello all. I was planning on applying to this program originally, until I found out the deadline for the Fall FT program was still open... so I was accepted to start in Sept.
    I am an A and B student, never received a C in my whole college career, but I had a difficult time with the accuplacer, took it twice and still wasn't satisfied with my scores. I got a 86 in Reading Comp, 105 in Sentence Skills and 85 in Arithmetic--- my first time. That wasn't good enough to apply because of the Reading Comp. score, so I took it again... got a 96 in Reading Comp., and kept the same scores on my other categories because I was tight for time and wanted to improve the score holding me back, what I used the second time to go up 10 points in Reading Comp. was the Accuplacer app. on my iphone/ipod... it's 1.99 BUT SO WORTH IT! It sets up the problems and questions like it would on the actual test, worth it, check it out!!! Good luck!

    Just want to "revive" this thread. Anyone else applying to the 2013 pt program at QC? How's your preparation going?
