All other sessions will be held on BCC's Main Campus in the Testing Center, Room K-213. Students are strongly encouraged to make an appointment for the earliest session that they can attend. 

To register, please call 413-236-1655 or email the Assessment & Testing Center at Students are required to bring a photo ID to their test session. Those without a picture ID must call in advance of their test session to arrange an acceptable substitute.

Practicing before you come to take the Accuplacer is a good idea. There is a free study app for Accuplacer. Once at the site, create an account by entering your email address and creating a password. Select Classic Practice Tests as this is the version of the test Berkshire Community College is currently using. Review the Reading Comprehension and the Elementary Algebra. If the Algebra is too difficult, review that Arithmetic. If the Algebra is fairly easy, review College Level Math. You will also write an essay as part of your assessment.
