In order to get into a parochial high school, you may have to take the High School Placement Test (HSPT). The standardized exam consists of five sections of multiple-choice questions, which are verbal, quantitative, reading, math, and language skills. Preparation is a must in order to attain the best testing scores possible on the math section of the HSPT. Your preparation begins with the materials and tools you have at your disposal, such as Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools Question of the Day. The question for the HSPT Math section covers a wide range of topics, allowing you to practice and refresh on a daily basis.

You may be wondering what you can gain by accessing the Question of the Day. When you answer the question, you receive detailed scoring that tells you what percentile you are in compared to others that took the Question of the Day for the HSPT Math section. In addition, you are given insights such as how long it took you to answer, the amount of questions you get right or wrong, and how many of those who answered were correct. These are compiled from the first Question of the Day that you answer, and every one after that. The insight gained from these facts and figures gives you an idea of where you need to study more, your performance in different areas, and your overall preparedness for the upcoming HSPT Math section.

Each Question of the Day is chosen at random based on the materials in the HSPT Math section practice tests provided with the Learning Tools. The randomization allows you to regularly test yourself on material that will be on the test. It keeps information fresh in your mind, and is most valuable with regular use. The HSPT Math section Question of the Day is a free way to review for your test at the touch of a button, and can be accessed from any Internet-connected mobile device, computer, or tablet. You will answer questions that pertain to simplifying algebraic equations and expressions, solving one- and two-step equations, coordinating geometry, area, perimeter, and volume of a figure, as well as word problems for distance, and work.

For free HSPT Math section practice, you can access the Question of the Day, along with other Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools, such as Learn by Concept, flashcards, topic-focused practice tests, and full-length practice tests that have been crafted to mimic the exam in question. The full suite of HSPT Math section Learning Tools offers you the whole package to design your own study plan, as well as the means to execute it, practice regularly, and identify your overall preparation for the HSPT Math section.

Reviewing with the HSPT Math section Question of the Day is ideal for quickly reviewing a concept, randomly testing yourself on a topic, and keeping your memory fresh. Rather than simply memorizing the facts and figures, you are given essential and valuable practice. Use the Question of the Day on a regular basis to optimize your study times.
