This brand-new title replaces Barron's previously published COOP/HSPT test prep manual with all-new study material and practice tests that reflect the COOP and HSPT tests as they are presently given. COOP is the acronym for Cooperative Admissions Exam, and HSPT is short for High School Placement Test. These tests are given as entrance exams at most Catholic high schools across the country. Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese of New York have adopted a slightly different test called TACHS, or Test for Admission to Catholic High Schools. Accordingly, this new manual presents TACHS sample questions and answers that will familiarize students with question types, format, and degree of difficulty. Review questions applicable to all three exams are presented to test students' academic strengths and weak areas. The authors provide two practice COOPs and two practice HSPTs that reflect the most recent exams in question types, length, and degree of difficulty. Practice tests come with answers and explanations.
