About the CUNY Assessment Test in Math
Applicants to a CUNY school take the CUNY Assessment Test in Math to determine their initial placement in math classes. You need to pass the first two sections of the test in order to enroll in college-level math courses. If you do not pass these levels, you may be placed in remedial courses. Placement in advanced math classes is also determined by your CUNY Assessment Test results. Each CUNY system school offers the exam, which is a computer-delivered test consisting entirely of multiple-choice questions.
CUNY Assessment Test in Math Registration and Preparation
You will be notified of a test time and date after the school reviews your entrance application. You must present a photo ID when you report to the test site. You should bring a pen or pencil, but you cannot bring any notebooks or other paper into the testing session, and the on-screen Microsoft Windows calculator is the only one allowed.
This test prep course goes over all the topics covered on the assessment test, and you can assess your knowledge with lesson quizzes, chapter tests and a comprehensive course exam that are in a multiple-choice format, like the test itself. We also offer a number of other study tools to help you get ready, including written transcripts you can print out and take with you for offline study.
