Take the following full-length TASC Math practice test to simulate the test day experience. After you’ve finished, score your tests using the answer keys.**Good luck!**

## The Absolute Best Book** to Ace the TASC Math** Test

**Time to refine your quantitative reasoning skill with a practice test**

In this section, there are two complete TASCT Mathematics practice tests. Take these tests to simulate the test day experience. After you’ve finished, score your tests using the answer keys.

**Before You Start**

- You’ll need a pencil, a calculator, and a timer to take the test.
- It’s okay to guess. You won’t lose any points if you’re wrong. So be sure to answer every question.
- After you’ve finished the test, review the answer key to see where you went wrong.
**Calculators are only permitted for the first section of the TASC Test.**- The TASC Mathematics test contains a formula sheet, which displays formulas relating to geometric measurement and certain algebra concepts. Formulas are provided to test- takers so that they may focus on application, rather than the memorization, of formulas.
- For each multiple-choice question, there are four possible answers. Choose which one is best. For grids in questions, write your answer in the answer boxes at the top of the grid. Then, as shown below fill in a bubble under each box in which you wrote your answer.

**Good Luck!**
