Test-Taking Tips
• Go to bed early the night before the test. You will think more clearly
after a good night's rest.
• Read each problem carefully and think about ways to solve the
problem before you try to answer the question.
• Relax. Most people get nervous when taking a test. It's natural. Just
• Answer questions you are sure about first. If you do not know the
answer to a question, skip it and go back to that question later.
• Think positively. Some problems may seem hard to you, but you may
be able to figure out what to do if you read each question carefully.
• If no figure is provided, draw one. If one is furnished, mark it up to
• When you have finished each problem, reread it to make sure your
• Become familiar with a variety of formulas and when they should
be used.
• Make sure that the number of the question on the answer sheet
matches the number of the question on which you are working in
of America. Except as permitted under the United States Copyright Act, no part of this book may

Overview
the West Virginia Educational Standards Test (WESTEST).
It contains:
• a Student Recording Chart,
• West Virginia Content Standards and Objectives,
• a Diagnostic Test,
• practice for each objective, and
• a Sample Test.
How to Use This Book
may have as you prepare to take the WESTEST. Once you’ve taken the test
and it’s been graded, complete the Student Recording Chart that is found
on page v. Mark an × in the square for each question that you answered
incorrectly.
Practice If you missed one or two of the questions for a particular
objective, you could probably use some extra practice with that objective.
The Student Recording Chart lists practice pages for each objective.
Complete the appropriate practice pages. If you are unsure about how to do
some of the problems, you may want to refer to your mathematics book.
Sample Test After you have completed your practice worksheet(s), take
the Sample Test on pages 46 to 55.
