 Have you been told you need TABE scores to get a job? The TABE is a test of reading and math skills required by many local employers before you can be considered for a job. Free remediation classes and an opportunity to re-test are services available through Adult Education at all locations.

There is a link above to a study guide that might help you with the mathematics portion of the test. Although it is not required it can be helpful in allowing you to get the scores you need the first time. The packet can also be downloaded using this link: TABE Preparation Packet.
