# Remember, calculators may not be used. do as many problems as you know ```PRACTICE PROBLEMS – Remember, calculators may not be used. After you have prepared by reviewing the math you already know, do as many problems as you know. You do not have to know how to do all of them. • If you are able to answer 25 to 35 questions, we recommend you take the Intermediate Algebra Placement Test. • If you are able to answer 15 to 24 questions, we recommend you take the Elementary Algebra Placement Test. • If you are able to answer 1 to 14 of the questions, we recommend you take the Algebra Readiness Placement Test. You must bring this package with your completed problems when you come to the Assessment Center in LR 141.
