The free NC DAP Online Course and Practice Assessment through Longdsdale Publishing helps students become familiar with all aspects of the placement assessment. It is a self-paced course and the practice tests provide you with scoring and areas that need additional remediation. The course will provide the additional remediation as well. Email testing@isothermal.edu for log-on information so that you will be prepared for the placement assessment.
