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.

I bought this book after having 10 years of aviation mechanic experience to apply to be a pilot. After reading through this book several times i took the practice exams for the AFAST (Army) and there are many sample test incorrect answers. My aviaiton knowledge and just plain old common sense trumped these sample answers. example: "The maneuver in which a rotary-wing aircraft (helicopter) is maintained in nearly motionless flight over a ground reference point at a constant altititude and heading (direction) in know as ___________. " (A. feathering, B. autorotation, C. hovering, D. torque balance, E. freewheeling.) The book says the correct answer is (B) autorotation. This however is very wrong and the correct answer is actually (C) hovering. This is a frequent practice in this book and is very unhelpful for future aviatiors of all levels of experience.
