Math Placement Test
The Mathematics Placement Test is not an admission test. It is meant to determine the math skills of undergraduate beginners. The successful students start directly with the course “College Algebra (MTH 110)” while those who fail have to take the remedial course “Introduction to College Mathematics (MTH 101)” in the first semester. In the latter case, your degree plan may get delayed.
The MPT from Spring Semester 2013 shall serve as an example and a guide for preparation.
