Our free HSPT Study Guide begins by giving you an overview of the HSPT. There is a chart showing the 5 subtests of the HSPT, the amount of time for each subtest, the number of problems for each subtest, and the average amount of time per problem on each subtest.
The first step in preparing for the HSPT is to see if you need to prepare at all! By taking an HSPT practice test, you will see how well you do, and what areas you need to work in.
Get a good night’s sleep. Don’t cram the night before! Eat a good breakfast so you have energy and don’t get hungry during the test. Bring two pencils with you to the test. If you would like to have water and a snack for the break, you can bring that with you as well.
A high school application essay is a personal essay. Essentially you’re introducing yourself. No matter the question or prompt, one way or another every question comes down to this: tell us who you are and what’s important to you.
A strong vocabulary is fundamental for success on the HSPT. Nearly two-thirds of the problems on the Verbal Skills subtest incorporate knowledge of vocabulary.
The HSPT®, or High School Placement Test®, is a 298-question, multiple-choice exam consisting of 5 separate subtests: Verbal, Quantitative, Reading, Math, and Langauge.
There is one main score to look for on the HSPT® score report and that is called the Composite National Percentile.
