# Barron's COOP/HSPT/TACHS, Cooperative Admissions Exam/High School Placement Test/Test for Admission Into Catholic High Schools

Barron's Educational Series, 2009 - Religion - 607 pages
The COOP and HSPT tests are entrance exams given to students applying at most Catholic high schools across the country. In the Archdiocese of New York, student applicants take a slightly different test called the TACHS. This updated manual offers general subject reviews with questions and answers cover math, verbal skills, language arts, and reading comprehension at a level applicable to all three exams. The book concludes with two practice COOPs, two practice HSPTs, and two practice TACHS tests that reflect the most recent exams. Practice tests come with answers and explanations.
