I got the ACCUPLACER pack. I found TestPrep-Online’s preparation pack very helpful. The questions and study guides are great. I found that the explanations and solving tips really helped me to learn the material and improve my score.

I used the GMAT prep. It's almost standing in one line with formal GMAT simulations.
Daniel
Just the timing aspect alone helped me mentally prepare for the time constraint. The other major thing that helped me was the math tips study guide.
Shana
I used the LSAT practice material. It helped improve my technique a lot.

Ivy Tech Placement Test Practice

Ivy Tech’s ACCUPLACER is a computer-based, adaptive test. "Adaptive" simply means that the questions you are given are dependent on whether you answered your previous question correctly or not. This in effect affects the difficulty of the following questions.

ACCUPLACER testing at Ivy Tech includes Reading Comprehension, Sentence Skills, and the WritePlacer Essay. Students are also required to take the Elementary Algebra, College-Level Math, and Arithmetic sections of the ACCUPLACER. You can learn more about the individual sections of the test by clicking on any of the links below:

This test is the most common way for Ivy Tech students to demonstrate their readiness for college-level coursework. The test usually takes up to 3 hours to complete. With the exception of the ACCUPLACER essay section, the ACCUPLACER Test is untimed, so you can take as much time as you need to complete the test. Ivy Tech recommends you allow three hours to take the test.

As the ACCUPLACER plays such an important role in determining your course load, brush up on your skills before the test with TestPrep-Online's preparation packs.

Do Your Best on the ACCUPLACER Test

Practice tests, question and answer analysis, and helpful test strategies have all been proven to enhance placement test results. Practicing with ACCUPLACER sample tests lets you know what to expect on the actual test, canceling out the intimidation factor. Practice tests also allow you to establish your test pace, provide necessary reviews of the subjects covered on the ACCUPLACER Ivy Tech Test, and identify troublesome areas that could use further study.

Your first attempt at the ACCUPLACER is free. After your first attempt, you may only retest up to two additional times in one year period for free. Any other attempts may be subject to costs. Relying on retests often results in added stress, pressure, and wasted time in both preparing and testing. Instead, invest your time and effort once and achieve a high score on the ACCUPLACER the first time.
