There is no study guide for the TABE test but students are encouraged to use the SPCC College Placement Test study guide and listed resources or seek out tutoring in the Academic Support Center prior to any testing. The TABE test is paper/pencil and timed. Prior preparation is critical to doing well on the TABE and insufficient preparation will result in non-admittance to many programs.

TABE Retest Guidelines
Students can be granted TABE retest if:
Students retesting must provide the Retest Authorization form, documentation of remediation, receipt of payment, and a photo ID at the time of the retest at which time the Enrollment Specialist will evaluate the documentation for eligibility. Enrollment Specialist or the Director of Admissions and Testing reserve the right to disallow a retest if there are questions about the validity of a request. The Director of Admissions and Testing (or designee) will determine if a special circumstance exists.
