  • HSE Readiness Test

    The HSE Readiness Test is a practice version of the HSE test. It covers the same subjects and uses the same scoring system. Each section is half the length of the full test. The Readiness Test is ideal for prospective test takers who don’t feel the need to attend class prior to testing, but would like to get an idea of the subjects covered on the test and see how well they will do at their current academic level. The test is 4 hours and costs $50. It is a paper test.
