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.
I got the TEAS practice tests. Your practice test questions are actually very similar to those in the ‘real’ tests.
I'm happy to report that my 3rd grade niece took her SCAT test and passed the quantitative math portion with flying colors - 44 of 50 correct! Your test preps were a huge help.
The test at school (NNAT) was easier than the questions on the website. I knew my answers were correct for all the questions except for two of them that I found somewhat confusing. I had a lot of fun doing the test!
The fact that the practice tests were online and very visual was great, as it helped my kids to be more responsive to exercises.
We used the NYC G&T pack. We ordered the materials a week before the test. My son was very happy and felt confident. Thanks!
