The American Council of Education (ACE) recommends three lower level baccalaureate credits. However, before investing your time, effort, and money in any study guide or content review – ensure your school accepts this test for credit. The test will contain 100 questions with a time limit of two hours.
Preparing for the test:

- Take some of the guesswork out of multiple-choice questions.
