PERT Resources

As far as the PERT is concerned, the Osceola Writing Center's main goal is to provide a more in-depth explanation, if necessary, for those skills discussed in the PERT Reading and Writing Review Guides and provide supplemental materials for those students who would like more practice than what our guides supply.

If you need information about PERT eligibility, costs, or other related items, please see below for links to those topics.

PERT Practice Tests


The company that created the PERT also provides PERT practice tests. Each section costs $2.50. Valencia does not require- nor does it endorse- these practice tests. However, they are available for those students who would like further practice (and since they come from the the PERT creators, they should allow you to get an accurate feel for what the PERT might be like).

Click HERE to find out more information or to purchase practice tests.

They also provide a free, shortened practice test with 10 questions per section. You can download it HERE.

We hope that these materials will aid you in your preparation for the PERT placement test. You may use these resources in a standalone fashion, or they can be used in conjunction with Valencia's Reading Guide and Writing Guide.
