Look at the columns of CIRCLES BELOW THE BLOCKS: • Find the letter that is thesame as the letter you have printed in the block above. • Darken the circle completely so that you cannot see the letter inside. • Do this for all the letters of your last name, first name, and your middle initial. • Darken only one circle in each of the columns.

The scanner cannot see very light marks. • Do not make any other marks on your answer sheet. • If you change your mind about an answer, erase your first mark completely. • Fill in only one circle for each problem. • Any problem with more than one answer marked will be counted wrong. • If you are not sure about an answer, you may guess. Wheninstructed to, open your test booklet and check to see that it is complete. Check the pages quickly. You should have 5 numbered pages in your test booklet. If there are pages missing from your booklet, raise your hand, and a proctor will give you a replacement.
