Why is it so Important?
- To get the best score so you can avoid taking extra review classes.
- To cut down on the time it takes you to meet your Math requirements.
What level (Pre-algebra, Algebra, or College Algebra) do I need to start with?
- If you have never had algebra before, start out with the beginning level test (Pre-algebra).
- If you have had algebra before, start with the middle level test (Algebra).
- If you have had intermediate algebra or higher, start with the highest level test (College Algebra/Trigonometry).
What do you need to do for the Test?
- Practice and review all the problems from the ACT COMPASS Math Sample Test Questions for your starting level. The relevant links are:
- Borrow a Math book from the the Windward CC Math Lab or Windward CC Library at your starting level.
- Take your time through the test and select your answers carefully.
