Coaching Sessions for Accuplacer Testing
Coaching sessions are designed to help students perform to the best of their ability on Massasoit's Accuplacer placement exams. Each one-hour session offers strategies for taking the mathematics or reading test. The sessions will include practice materials and an overview of the courses students may place into per their test scores. Also, a brief review of essay-writing will be included in the reading session.

The coaching sessions are free to students planning to attend Massasoit Community College.
