Yes I do have that book, I've started studying but I just want to make sure I'm focusing on the right things. I'm scheduled to go to the study sessions in the learning lab early next month. Do you mind giving me like an idea of what the questions were like for the sections?

Sure so the math has A LOT of proportions! Get familiar with fractions (there are a lot of multiplying, dividing, adding 3 fraction at a time) I had about 5 or 6 conversion problems. Basically if you can do the math problems in the book you will be fine!

Reading comp is one I studied the least because i'm usually pretty proficient with that but for whatever reason i didn't do as well as i usually do so i would study that section in the book. The test asks you questions like "what does the author mean by...?" or "what is the tone of the writer"... things like that.

Grammar you need to know subject-verb agreement. Its a lot of what word doesn't or does belong in the sentence. The book is pretty thorough with this section. There was a lot I forgot about in grammar.

Vocab was the easiest to me. The questions on the test are almost identical to the book. But if you can get the vocab list from the edition 3 book because some of those words were on the test as well. Google different vocab test just as a way to prepare because there were some words i had no clue what they meant. I hope this kinda helps you.

Yes this helps a lot!! The math and grammar are the ones I'm most worried about. I was scared there were going to be a lot of conversions, but you made me feel a lot better about that. And grammar is just a pain remembering all the rules lol.

Yes there is a calculator for the math. It also allows you to pick the order of which test you want to take first. SO I took math first (most worried about that), then Vocab,reading and Grammar.

I submitted yesterday, I only saw maybe five other names on the sign-in sheet so not many people actually came in for the first submission session and I can say that confidently because I didn't come in till about 3:30 and they closed at about 4 so if not many people apply the next date then we might all get in by default

I submitted Monday as well. I got there at about 930ish.. There was a little more than half a sheet of names there. Kinda freaked me out. Also they dont really tell you how many points you have. The person I spoke with said they keep it all internal AND that we'll know by the END of March! Thats more than 4-6 weeks. :-(
