OnMyOwn Posted June 17, 2017 Share Posted June 17, 2017 If your student took this test, did they use a graphing calculator? My dd has used one, but only very lightly. Is it necessary to make sure she is really comfortable with the calculator for this test or could she do fine with just a scientific calculator? She has just begun to get serious about test prep this week. On her first college board practice test, she only got a few problems wrong, but she took about an hour and a half to do the test. She said that part of the reason she took so long is that she spent too long on one problem and the earlier problems were so easy compared to what had been on the Barron's test she took that she was second guessing herself thinking she was missing something. I'm wondering if she'll need to use the graphing calculator in order to get her time down to an hour and if that is something most students use.
