    well, skimmed through each problem and verified that I know how to do it.

    It's a straightfoward math test, covering standard skills that every student acquires by 10th grade, up through Alg. 1 and Pre-Cal--not algebra II, didn't see any trig., definitely no calculus.

    No trick questions.  Sure, you have to know the concepts, but none of the questions are particularly convoluted.

    If this guy did as badly as he claims, he's missing some basic core skills--algebraic manipulation, area/volume, working with circles and triangles, word problems.

    Not saying he (or the students) have to be perfect, but the test is completely fair in all respects.  People who are complaining about the 'multiple choice' or the 'english' in the math section really don't know what they're talking about, sorry guys.
