Bio Placement Exam

Jasmineln Jasmineln (New) New

HI! I have to take the Biology Placement exam on Monday which is required to take A&P. Can anyone tell me where I can find a study guide or practice test for this? I can not find anything. They said it is pretty basic stuff, and is only 36 multiple choice questions. It is basically a Bio 101 test. I have the book, but I cant get through a 400 page book and have it memorized by Monday. I just decided less than a month ago to go back to school, so that is why I only have a short period of time. I took the Compass on Wednesday and did really well on it and Monday I am scheduled for the Net and Bio. I feel confident about the Net, just not the BIo (been out of school for 10 years). I just need to know what areas I should study. I would appreciate any help!




Specializes in none.

I dont know if they are all the same in each state, but I took one in AZ and it was a 100 questions. It was a lot about prokaryotes and eukaryotes. DNA, and quite a few chem like questions.

Our local community college requires a Biology placement exam for Anatomy too (and a Chemistry exam for Physiology). They provide an online self-prep for the Biology exam. It provides an overview of the material and then Activities and Self-Tests to check your comprehension. Maybe something like that would help?

You can find it here:


You might also ask if your school has an outline of the placement exam topics. That way you could ensure that you were reviewing topics relevant to your specific exam.

Best wishes! :wink2:
