NOTE TO READER

We are pleased to present this revised student Study Guide to you. We have made several important changes based on the feedback we received from parents, students, teachers, and administrators. Focus groups from both northern and southern California analyzed the original Student Guides and provided suggestions to make them more useful and accessible to students. The following changes were made to the document:

  • We have placed a full practice test in the beginning of the guide with an answer key in the appendix.

  • Additional sample test questions have been added to both guides.

  • Graphics and page design have been revised to improve readability.

  • Mathematics and English-language arts now use consistent strategies to refer to content strands.

  • Tabs have been added for easy reference to content strands.

  • Explanations to the mathematics practice problems show dual approaches to solve each problem.

  • Students are provided with strategies for solving English-language arts questions.
