Prepare for Math
The length of the math test depends on your math skills – you will be faced with more
questions if you have more math skills; fewer questions otherwise. The math portion of the test may
take as few as 10 minutes or as long at 2 1/2 hours.

Calculators are provided for you and are self-contained in the Accuplacer test. You will see them on the test screen. Accuplacer provides the appropriate type of calculator depending on the math problem.
