## Take the Guesswork out of Passing Your ASSET® Exam!

### Two Ways to Study

Jennifer and Amy are aspiring University school students. They’ve met all the entrance requirements. They have great recommendations. **All that stands between them and University is success on the ASSET® Exam.**

Jennifer had always been a good student. She did okay on tests like the SAT and figured the ASSET® would be like that. Besides, she heard that you couldn’t really prepare for the ASSET® exam. She fit in some studying (in between her favorite TV shows). But as the test date approached, she got a nagging feeling that she should be doing more. When she got her scores, Jennifer had been proficient in some areas, but scored very low in English which had always been one of her strongest subjects. She was also surprised at how unprepared she was for the Science section.

Amy,** on the other hand, knew she had never been a great test taker. In fact, she had always found them stressful.** She had to work very hard to get the grades she got. **She knew that “seeing” what the test looked like would boost her confidence.** Armed with practice tests and a focused study guide, Amy quickly realized she knew more than she thought and was able to focus on the areas where she needed help. When she took the test, she scored proficient or higher in every area and confidently took the next step towards realizing her dream of becoming a nurse.

**Why did Amy succeed when Jennifer struggled, and how can you ensure that you have that same success?**

### Practice Makes Perfect

Amy understood the same thing that many successful ASSET takers understand. The more questions you see, the more likely you are to pass the test. **And between our study guide and practice tests, you’ll have over 500 practice questions that cover every category.** You can fine-tune your knowledge in areas where you feel comfortable and be more efficient in improving your problem areas.

They will not be the exact same questions you’ll find on the exam, but they are similar.

And like the ASSET exam, the practice tests are weighted differently so you will be exposed to questions in all areas.
