The program is now being rolled out to new titles every month. as a way to showcase their commitment to environmental sustainability.

“More than 30 million trees are cut down annually for virgin paper used for the production of books sold in the U.S. alone,” said Raz Godelnik, chief executive officer of Eco-Libris. ”By working with us, Complete Test Preparation Inc. is offering a simple and affordable way for consumers of the Complete Test Preparation Inc. catalog of 80 study guides to fund the planting of new trees for each title they buy. We strive for a world where reading books doesn’t have adverse effects on the environment, and achieve our mission to make reading much more sustainable than it is today.”

Planting trees not only helps to fight climate change and conserves soil and water, but also benefits many local people, for whom these trees offer many benefits, such as improvement of crops and additional food and income, and an opportunity for a better future.

Environmental consciousness is important for the continued growth of our company. In addition to eco-balancing each title, as a print on demand publisher, we only print units as orders come in, which greatly reduces excess printing and waste. This revolutionary printing technology also eliminates carbon emissions from trucks hauling boxes of books everywhere to warehouses. We also maintain a commitment to recycling any waste materials that may result from the printing process. We continue to review our manufacturing practices on an ongoing basis to ensure we are doing our part to protect and improve the environment.

Before beginning any exam there are steps you can take to help your self succeed. Make sure you are as relaxed as possible. Next make sure you are sitting the right exam and have been given the proper paper. Once you have established that you are in fact taking the correct exam, be sure to read all the instructions carefully. Often these instructions involve key terms. You can find examples of these terms and their meanings in the Glossary of Exam Terms. Other ways to ensure your success also vary by exam type.

**Essay Exams**

Essay Exams are given for various subjects. These often require detailed knowledge to be well explained about the particular subject. Essay exams should be phrased in full sentences with good grammar. This requires a great deal of focus and is accomplished best through proper preparation. The following tips will help you with that preparation.

Often essay exams allow you to pick your subjects from multiple topics. The best way to do this is to comb through each question and mark the questions that you feel you are capable of answering quickly. If you do not find enough questions do not worry. Answering the questions you have picked may trigger additional knowledge and open more possibilities. If you still do not find you are confident in completing enough remaining topics select the required number anyway and make an attempt. Partial credit is better than no credit.

Make sure you understand exactly what is expected of you for each question. You may find it helpful to mark the keywords or even rewrite the question in your own words. Clarify the expectations with the exam monitor if possible. Answer the question you are most comfortable with first. After you have completed the easiest question move on to the question you believe to be the most difficult. This will prevent you from being to worn out to answer completely and ensures you have time to earn maximum points on both questions.

Be sure to have a brief plan for how you will answer each question. It is a good idea to write this plan down. Be careful not to spend too much time on this step or you may run out of time. This will stop you from rushing your essay and help you earn more points.

Use the same format for your essay exam that you would use for an individual paper. Begin with an introduction which includes your thesis and touches on the main points of the essay. Next will be the body of the essay. Discuss each major point thoroughly. Summarize your essay with a conclusion and never introduce new information in this section. This is your chance to impress through your writing skills while pointing out the factual information you have provided. Make the conclusion memorable but brief.

**Take Home Tests and Other Forms of Open Book Exams**

Some instructors feel that open book exams are better for testing the application of knowledge. This is because it tests application rather than memorization. To successfully complete an open book exam you must familiarize yourself with the material thoroughly as well as its location in the book. These tests are often more difficult than other forms of tests because since you are using your book instructors expect more in depth answers. Also when these tests are taken in the classroom you are often given less time to complete the exam. More on Take Home Exams.

**Multiple Choice Tests**

Multiple Choice exams offer an array of selections, one or more of which must be used to answer the questions. When taking a multiple choice test be sure to read the instructions, questions, and answers completely before making your selection. Answer the questions that you are confidant in first and save more difficult questions for the end.

You will usually be penalized for wrong answers. One way to avoid these are through process of elimination. While you may not know the correct answer immediately, you may be able to evaluate the given choices and eliminate enough to find the correct choice. Understanding the instructions is especially important if you intend to use this method. For some tests more than one answer may be correct. Do not confuse yourself by eliminating a correct answer.

**Oral Exams**

Oral exams are most common for foreign language classes. This is meant to examine you’re your knowledge and your ability to apply that knowledge. Oral exams differ by instructor, so if you will be taking an oral exam verify the requirements with your instructor. After you know what will be expected you can prepare through practice.

**Example Word Problem and extended solution – see below for more**

For a certain board game, two dice are thrown to determine the number of spaces to move. One player throws the two dice and the same number comes up on each of the dice. What is the probability that the sum of the two numbers is 9?

A. 0

B. 1/6

C. 2/9

D. 1/2

E. 1/3

Let’s look at a few different methods and steps to solving this problem, using some of the techniques further explained in detail in TAAS Study Guide.

1. Create an Algebra Problem

While you might think that creating an algebra problem is the last thing that you would want to do, it actually can make the problem extremely simple.

Consider what you know about the problem. You know that both dice are going to roll the same number, but you don’t know what that number is. Therefore, make the number “x” the unknown variable that you will need to solve for.

Since you have two dice that both would roll the same number, then you have “2x” or “two times x”. Since the sum of the two dice needs to equal nine, that gives you “2x = 9″.

Solving for x, you should first divide both sides by 2. This creates 2x/2 = 9/2. The twos cancel out on the left side and you are have x = 9/2 or x = 4.5

You know that a dice can only roll an integer: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6, therefore 4.5 is an impossible roll. An impossible roll means that there is a zero possibility it would occur, making choice A, zero, correct.

**2. Run Through the Possibilities for Doubles **

You know that you have to have the same number on both dice that you roll. There are only so many combinations, so quickly run through them all.

You could roll:

Double 1′s = 1 + 1 = 2

Double 2′s = 2 + 2 = 4

Double 3′s = 3 + 3 = 6

Double 4′s = 4 + 4 = 8

Double 5′s = 5 + 5 = 10

Double 6′s = 6 + 6 = 12

Now go through and see which, if any, combinations give you a sum of 9. As you can see here, there aren’t any. No combination of doubles gives you a sum of 9, making it a zero probability, and choice A correct.

**3. Run Through the Possibilities for Nine **

Just as there are only so many possibilities for rolling doubles, there are also only so many possibilities to roll a sum of nine. Quickly calculate all the possibilities, starting with the first die.

If you rolled a 1 with the first die, then the highest you could roll with the second is a 6. Since 1 + 6 = 7, there is no way that you can roll a sum of 9 if your first die rolls a 1.

If you rolled a 2 with the first die, then the highest you could roll with the second is a 6. Since 2 + 6 = 8, there is no way that you can roll a sum of 9 if your first die rolls a 2.

If you rolled a 3 with the first die, then you could roll a 6 with your other die and have a sum of 9. Since 3 + 6 = 9, this is a valid possibility.

If you rolled a 4 with the first die, then you could roll a 5 with your other die and have a sum of 9. Since 4 + 5 = 9, this is a valid possibility.

If you rolled a 5 with the first die, then you could roll a 4 with your other die and have a sum of 9. Since 5 + 4 = 9, this is a valid possibility.

If you rolled a 6 with the first die, then you could roll a 3 with your other die and have a sum of 9. Since 6 + 3 = 9, this is a valid possibility.

Now review all the possibilities that give you a combination of 9. You have: 3 + 6, 4 + 5, 5 + 4, and 6 + 3. These are the only combinations that will give you a sum of 9, and none of them are doubles. Therefore, there is a zero probability that doubles could give you a sum of 9, and choice A is correct.

**4. Calculate the Odds **

Quickly calculate the odds for just rolling a 9, without setting any restrictions that it has to be through doubles or anything else. You’ve seen in Method 3 that there are 4 ways that you can roll a sum of 9. Since you have two dice, each with 6 sides, there are a total of 36 different combinations that you could roll (6*6 = 36). Four of those thirty-six possibilities give you a sum of 9. Four possibilities of rolling a 9 out of thirty-six total possibilities = 4/36 = 1/9. So that means there is a 1/9 chance that would roll a 9, without any restrictions. Once you add restrictions, such as having to roll doubles, then your odds are guaranteed to go down and be less than 1/9. Since the odds have to be less than 1/9, the only answer choice that satisfies that requirement, is choice A, which is zero, making choice A correct.

Reading Comprehension is a very common component on standardized tests, including College Entrance, Armed forces entrance, Nursing Entrance and High School tests.

**Reading Comprehension Practice Questions **

**Directions:** Read the following paragraphs and answer the questions that accompany them. Circle the correct answer, which you believe most accurately satisfies the requirements of each question. The answer key is located at the end of this test.

Passage 1

Warm air has a lower density than cool air, so warm air rises within cooler air, similar to hot air balloons. Clouds form as warm air carrying moisture rises within cooler air. As the warm air rises, it cools. The moist water vapor begins to condense. When the moisture condenses, this releases energy that keeps the air warmer than its surroundings, so that it continues to rise. If enough instability is present in the atmosphere, this process will continue long enough for cumulonimbus clouds to form, which support lightning and thunder. All thunderstorms, regardless of type, go through three stages: the cumulus stage, the mature stage, and the dissipation stage. Depending on the conditions present in the atmosphere, these three stages can take anywhere from 20 minutes to several hours to occur.

**1. The idea that can be inferred from Passage 1 is:**

- Warm air is denser than cool air
- All thunderstorms will go through three stages.
- Thunderstorms may occur without clouds present.
- The stages of a thunderstorm are finished in just a few minutes.

**2. When warm air rises through colder air, it results in:**

- Evaporation.
- Humidity.
- Clear skies.
- Condensation.

**3. What is the correct order?**

- Warm air rises, cools as it gets higher, water condenses, warms the air, and the air rises more.
- Warm air rises, warms up more as it get higher, water condenses, warms the air, and the air rises more.
- Warm air rises, cools as it gets higher, water condenses, cools the air, and the air rises more.
- None of the above.

**4. Cumulonimbus clouds are forming now. What must be true?**

- The process of warm air rising and water condensing hasn’t started.
- The process of warm air rising and water condensing is just starting now.
- The process of warm air rising and water condensing has being going on for some time.
- None of the above.

**Answer Key**

**1. B**

All thunderstorms will go through three stages. This is taken directly from the text, “All thunderstorms, regardless of type, go through three stages: the cumulus stage, the mature stage, and the dissipation stage.”

**2. D
**Condensation. From the passage, “As the warm air rises, it cools. The moist water vapor begins to condense as the temperature cools.”

**3. A
**The correct order of the process is seen in this passage:

“Clouds form as warm air carrying moisture rises. As the warm air rises, it cools. The moist water vapor begins to condense as the temperature cools. This releases energy that keeps the air warmer than its surroundings. The result is that it continues to rise.”

**4. C
**From the passage,we see that “if enough instability is present in the atmosphere, this process will continue long enough for cumulonimbus clouds to form,” where ‘this process’ is the process of rising air, condensing water drops generating heat, causing the air to rise further.

- Makes sure you are in the right exam. There may be other testing session for the same class and classes with similar names. Look for others from your section and double check the section number.
- Remember that every instructor has different requirements and will expect different things. Read instructions for each exam so that you are sure to provide accurate answers.
- Determine which questions you will answer and which order you will answer them in. This may vary depending on the type of exam. Prepare for this by reading the section on Different Types of Exams.

** Exam Preparation**

- Make a plan for each question that will require any writing or chart usage. This will shorten the time it takes you to complete the question. It will also prevent you from making mistakes.
- Do not rush to write. This will cause mistakes. Read your plan and revise it if you find anything has been left out. Do not include irrelevant information.
- Make sure you follow the instructions. You may find some terms used in the instructions confusing so learn these ahead of time. To do this, refer to the Glossary of Exam Terms.
- Know how much time you have for each question and include time limits in your planning process. For example if you know that you will have 3 hours to answer 10 essay questions, then you have 18 minutes per question. That breaks down to 9 minutes for planning and 9 minutes for writing. Keep you eye on the clock because if you go over your per question time limit you may lose points on other questions.
- Attempt to answer all necessary questions. Even a brief statement is worth more points than no answer.

**Ending**

Always leave time at the end of the exam to check your answers. You may find you have made mistakes or left out information. By correcting this you will earn more points. Continue this process until you have used all available time. Do not leave early, once you have left the exam you will not be able to correct any of your mistakes. Use your time well and you will be faced with less regrets after the test.
