Thomas in Cherry Hill, New Jersey said: Is there a math assessment portion of the test? If so, what is it consist of. Thanks in advangce
There are about 8, 10? maybe more, easy questions- and I mean easy- like use your calculator (you're given one) to add, subtract, multiply and divide. Then, they get more involved and go something like this: there is a table at the top that shows cost of parts to replace, and the time it took to repair each part, with the given labor
rate. For example- labor rate is 119.00/hour. Part A cost 130.00 and it took 1.5 hours to repair, what is the total cost to repair part A? Next questions do the same for Parts B and C, with the labor times changing-like Part B taking 1.75 hours and Part C taking 3 hours. I suck at math and got through 15, 17 questions at best and so that left more than half undone. I think there were maybe 35 questions, but no more than that, and you get 35-45 minutes. I know they don't expect you to get through all of them; I just filled in any answers for those i didn't know before she came around and took answer sheets. Not sure what the rest of the math test consisted of. I want to say, fractions, decimals, and %'s. The entire test is multiple choice. The only part done on the computer
is the typing test, and they give a practice sheet to try as many times as you want before moving on to the actual test. When you're done with that, the monitor will look at the score on your screen and tell you if you've passed, and if not, then you don't move on. If you do, then you take the multiple choice tests broken down into timed sections and get the pass or fail at the end of the entire thing. Advice for taking this 3&1/2 test- because it's timed, be sure to skip the questions you're spending too much time on. You'll understand what I mean, maybe more than 2-3 minutes and consider coming back to it. Those that you don't answer- guess an answer (A-E) rather than leave it blank. I passed the test.
