Taking CAAP Tests

Bring the following to the test administration:

  1. At least three sharpened soft-lead (No. 2) pencils with erasers.
  2. A calculator, if you would like to use one.
  3. A wristwatch to pace yourself during the test. Do NOT bring a watch that has an alarm function.

The use of scratch paper, notes, or dictionaries is NOT permitted. Scratch work is to be done in the test booklet.

The following test-taking strategies are recommended:

  • Pace yourself to allow time for each question.
  • Read the directions for each test carefully.
  • Read each question carefully.
  • Answer the easier questions first.
  • Use logic in more difficult questions.
  • Review your work.
  • Answer every question because there is no penalty for guessing.
  • Be precise in marking your answer sheet—stay within the circles.
  • Erase all unintended marks completely.
