This book is designed to help students understand and prepare for the COMPASS test, review the skills necessary to perform well on the COMPASS, and to take practice tests similar to the COMPASS test. The book is divided into four parts; an Introduction, Mathematics, Composition, and Reading. Practice tests in the book are designed to mimic items and responses as they are on the COMPASS test, and are included in each section. This is by far one of our best-selling titles, used heavily from Hawaii to the East Coast.
