cover two or three remedial course sequences. With this practice it may be difficult to determine

the specific types of questions that are tested on the PERT test.

With this guide in mind, you should carefully look at the type of PERT practice test you are using to

determine your best path for a complete PERT practice in each subtest area. We hope this helps with

your practice for the PERT and we wish you all the best with your practicing.

The PERT is one of the most important tests Florida students take to start their college education or

finish their high school education. Scores from the PERT test are used to determine students level

of college readiness; scores lower than the cut-off range* will require students to complete several.

remedial classes in Math, Reading and English before attempting college level courses.

We understand that preparing for the PERT Test can be a frustrating task. Where do I start, what

questions do I practice, and how am I going to learn this Math, Reading and Writing - I've been out.

of school for a while and I haven't done much in the way of school work. And, my schedule is so full,

where am I going to find the time to start or even finish a complete practice for the PERT?.

PERT has three subtests in Math, Reading and Writing. Each subtest has 30 multiple choice questions.

The PERT test is computer adaptive, meaning that the computer program chooses your next question based

on your previous answer. Students are not allowed to go back after answering a question. There is no time

limit for completing the PERT. On the math subtest, students cannot use a calculator for most questions;
