PRACTICE TEST 8

Time: 60 minutes

Directions: Select the BEST answer for each of the 50 multiple-choice questions. If the exact solution is not one of the

five choices, select the answer that is the best approximation. Then, fill in the appropriate oval on the answer sheet.

Notes:

Scientific, programmable, and graphing calculators are permitted. It is up

to you to determine when and when not to use your calculator.

2. Angles on the Level 2 test are measured in degrees and radians. You need

to decide whether your calculator should be set to degree mode or radian

mode for a particular question.

3. Figures are drawn as accurately as possible and are intended to help

solve some of the test problems. If a figure is not drawn to scale, this will

be stated in the problem. All figures lie in a plane unless the problem

indicates otherwise.

4. Unless otherwise stated, the domain of a function f is assumed to be the

set of real numbers x for which the value of the function, f (x), is a real

number.

5. Reference information that may be useful in answering some of the test

questions can be found below.
