Practice For the TSI the Best Way

Scoring well on the TSI is an indication that you are prepared for college level courses and allows you to bypass remedial courses. Although your high school classes have been designed to prepare you for this test, you want to be sure that you have learned the skills and retained the knowledge that you have been taught. How can you know if you have what it takes to score well on the TSI? Utilizing quality study materials and verifying your readiness by taking TSI practice tests is usually the best approach. Mometrix Academy provides free resources to help you in your preparation for the TSI.

Free practice tests for each individual TSI subject are also available from Mometrix. Taking a TSI practice test will help you gauge how prepared you are for the actual TSI test. A TSI practice test will also show you the subject areas where you need to focus your attention. You may want to consider taking a TSI practice test for the first time and indicate next to each question which of the following statements is true.

  • I confidently knew the correct answer.
  • I chose the correct answer but was unsure of my choice.
  • I had no idea which option was the correct answer.

This approach will reveal your areas of strength and weakness so that you can appropriately plan your study time. Obviously, you won’t need to spend a lot of time on the questions that you answered correctly but you may want to review this material just to confirm that you have a complete understanding of the concept. You’ll need to spend a little more time on the questions that you answered correctly but weren’t very confident about. The majority of your preparation will be spent on the questions that you were completely at a loss as to the correct answer. Don’t let these questions discourage you!
