Should I study for the Compass test? The Compass test is a rival to the Accuplacer exam. Now I worry about how much I need to study my vocabulary, because I don't know what that is. Both the Compass test and Accuplacer test you on what you ought to know from high school. The tests are supposed to cover algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus -- a lot of hard math. If you were on the college prep track in college, you should have at least taken pre-calculus if not calculus. OK, I need to study the math. The math portion also tests your ability to handle word problems. As if that has any real life applications. Do IRS tax forms count? Touche. Do you even know what that means? I think it is French for ouch. You might want to study if only to catch up on vocabulary. That's especially true if you sound like a rapper or a California Valley girl in terms of limited vocabulary. As long as it isn't as bad as the SAT. They ask you for the meaning of words only used by Shakespeare and Scrabble champions. The SAT developers said they're going to replace recondite words with merely esoteric ones. Are those words French, too? No, but I think you need to review the vocabulary so that the grades you get back aren't painful. And to avoid the agony of paying $500 for per remedial course before you can take actual college level courses. I can take out student loans. At 6% interest compounded over ten to twenty years, equals how much you have to pay for that course? Never mind, you already admitted to needing to refresh your math skills. So, do you think I should study for it? If the school wants you to take the test, they're already concerned you don't know what you ought to know. In that case, you ought to make sure you do know it.
