    Effin intergers. I'll get on that now. 80 definitions in 24 mins Words like perfect and adhere. Man let's do this

    Yea I was gonna mention dont pay anyone 50 or any amount. We jus need the hard work. I know I been slacking past few months and now forced to cram but I'll stick in there. $175 doesn't come easy so I'll focus the hardest I ever have for two weeks n pray

    Don't think geo is on the test. All I know is practice find the easiest simplest way to do problems and learn it.

    No there is no word problems, geometry,algebra. 1. Question was the square root of 36.answ 6. 50%of x=18 dont get ready to work the problem out just look at it, 50% or 1/2 of 18 is 9 they try and trick u to make u run out of time. 5+x=5 x=0 5+0=5 dont be so quick to think u have to work it out on paper, u can do it in your head. 1000*10= 10000 remember the rule if there is 3 zero move the decimal to the right 3x vice versa if u divide move the decimal to the left 3x if there is 3 zero's.out of 37 math questions 10 are intergers so remember the rule for adding ,subtracting, and multiplying ,dividing intergers. Do all the ones u know first and go back and work on the ones ur not sure of. U only have to demonstrate a 9th grade math level. The reading comp, the first passage is long and the rest are short paragraphs. U want to get through all the passages to obtain a high score and plus the combine the read comp and voc and all u have to demonstrate is a 11 grade level. People dont fail the test b/c they dont know it, they fail b/c its a timed test. The day b4 the test get ur 8 hours,eat ur breakfast and breath and pray, u will be just fine!!!!

    Thanks so much! Got to brush on my intergers. I'm taking my test on the 24th. So I still have a while to study. I'm coming from laurelton,queens and it takes me about 18 mins to get there by car. Is any one else coming from queens? Also I plan on quitting my current job does any one know if veeb has like an intership or something like that? Thanks

    Here I am. . . . . there are fractions and integers on the exam I think the most I got wrong was three questions if even. . . . . . .Nervous about the vocab cause its 80 questions in 24 min so you have to move very fast not much time to debate whats right from wrong. . . . . .the reading comp is easy the answers are in the paragraph. . .. . . . .it was easy the vocab is the only thing Im really worried about cause u have to move really fast but you have ample time to finish the math and the reading comp trust me its elementary my dear friend watson!!!!! Dont worry its cake just go over fractions, decimals, integers, absolute value and everyone should know addition and subtraction lololol The vocab had words like perceive means to . . . . .and four choices the words were simple but there is room for error because of the time constraint the reading comp was about three or four paragraphs per page anda few questions following dont worry guys I will see you all in Sept. . . . . . .but she stated clearly that if 500 students pass it is the first 200 with that deposit money financial aid doesn't apply for the deposit sooo start saving good luck god bless and goodnight . . . . .I going partying :typing
