Exam Sample Questions

We recommend that students review the English, ESL and math sample questions before they take the exams to become familiar with the exam format and type of questions asked.  There are no sample questions available for the Chemistry exam; however, listed below you will find an exam description.  If you choose not to review for the exams and you do not do well on them, you will have to wait eight weeks to retake the exam.
