During the Social Studies test, you will answer multiple-choice, drag-and-drop, hot-spots, fill-in-the-blanks, and drop-down style questions drawn from four content areas; US History, Economics, Geography, Civics and Governance. These questions will test your comprehension and analytical skills and the question stimulus material will come from the above mentioned content areas. To do well, you must be able to read passages, cartoons, graphs, and charts.

The Science test focuses on three major domains: life science, physical science, and earth and space science. Answering the questions requires a combination of excellent reading skills, specific knowledge, and the ability to interpret scientific data.
