English Placement Testing | ACCUPLACER

"I first took the placement test a few weeks ago and did not score high enough to get into classes I needed. Therefore, I used the Accuplacer practice testing program to assist me in my studies to achieve a better score. In the end I was able to score 3 points higher on my writing score and around a 20-point difference with my reading. So I encourage people to study off of the Accuplacer app to help improve your scores."
- T. Guidiño
