Quote from Maisie
Has anyone taken the NET. Does the test contain algebra and geometry? At what level?
Maisie, I think most of the entrance exams are very similar and it seems that the Math Portion is what gets everyone. I was very prepared for lots of algebra - but like "MichelleinMA" said - there isn't much algebra, mostly word problems. The word problems we had dealt with percentages, decimals, fractions, etc. What made that part of the test "stressful" was the fact that calculators weren't allowed and we only had 40 minutes to complete 50 questions.
Everyone I talked to said they ran out of time on the Math Portion and didn't finish. For some strange reason we were given 60 minutes for English - that was the easiest and most people finished that in 30 minutes.
My best advice to you is to get a study guide for the SAT's, ACT, etc. and practice, practice doing word problems "Without a Calculator" and pick up your speed - because speed is everything on that part of the test. Every question you leave unanswered is marked wrong - so better to at least take a good guess. Best of Luck to You. SusanNC
