              • You can skip the pre-test by not answering any of the questions. Skipping the pre-test means that the chapter assignments will not modified based on your knowledge of the content.

              • You have 2 attempts on the quizzes. Complete the paired homework (HW) assignment after the first attempt. Contact your instructor if more attempts for the quiz are needed.
              • Quizzes have a 60 minute time limit.
              • Each Quiz, Test has a corresponding homework assignment that allows you to review concepts that you missed and use the MyMathLab help and review features. Do the paired assignment before further attempts on the quiz.

                • Prerequistes need to be met before the test will be available. Make sure to clear any green flag that is by your test.
