Resources For the COMPASS Test Posted by Michael Gold - August 18, 2009 - SAT, ACT, ETC. If you are interested in taking the COMPASS tests, you could download some practice questions, e.g., in math and reading, in pdf form. They describe the type of calculators you can use on the math test; looks like you could use a graphing calculator such as the TI-83 or -84. I recommend you take advantage of it! The site also has some general sample questions and general information about the test.
