Please note: The CPT is not Required for students who intend to take Math 34A* (see note below).
This 90-minute exam is for students intending to take the math 3 series (please see list below for majors that require this series). The CPT tests a student's knowledge of those parts of algebra and trigonometry that are essential for calculus. There is no fee for this exam and pre-registration is not required. You will need to supply your UCSB perm number. Listed below are the minimum scores required for enrolling in calculus and pre-calculus (Math 15) and calculus (Math 3A) courses at UCSB:
*What is the difference between the Calculus 3 series and the 34 series? Math 34AB is a terminal series designed for students whose majors require a basic understanding of calculus and its applications in the social and biological sciences. Math 3AB is for students in the physical sciences and engineering, or for those who wish to study calculus beyond the first year. It is followed by Math 3C and Math 5ABC.
