I went and took my Compass test. The one to see where I stand in the smarts department.
Let's do the good news first OK?
I got the highest score possible on reading and comprehension. That was 99%
On writing I got an 89%. I had to correct grammar and if you have been reading this blog for any length of time then you might know that grammar is not a super strong point with me. Good thing that there was not a spelling test!
Now on to the math. I was not so hot in that department. I got a 43%. Which really, I was surprised by as I guessed on almost all the questions! The set up was a math problem and then I could pick A,B,C, or D. They should have had E. Eat ear wax?. That was pretty much what I thought all the answers should be. They asked question about planes, slopes, integrators? Something like that. I was giggling out loud on some of the questions as I was so, so so not getting it. Like this one
If A = 2 then (3y x -7(11a.[ xy+9x-15](insert square root symbol here)64=? ( also add some of them "to the 10th power" stuff in that )
My answer- Eat ear wax?
There were some fractions and those I could do. They gave me a calculator and I was shown how to use the fraction button on it. That helped. It's OK though. I will go into the "introduction to collage math" class and learn the basics and I will get credit for it. I also can get a tutor (free) that can help me with understanding some math concepts.
