Accuplacer Practice Test
The ACCUPLACER Web App has been developed by the College Board and is intended to familiarize you with the basic content areas of the ACCUPLACER test. This App is not designed to serve as a substitute for an actual ACCUPLACER test, nor does it guarantee that you will receive a specific score on an actual ACCUPLACER test.
