Use subjects in this section for works on the tests (or types of tests) listed, for study aids about the topics listed, for works of the type listed, or for works written to help an individual select an institute of higher education and finance his or her education.  For general works about studying, use "EDUCATION / Study Skills".

Subjects in this section may be used with those in other sections for study aids on topics not found in this section, but it is recommended that topical subjects be assigned first: for example, a work about studying for an advanced placement test in calculus could be assigned "MATHEMATICS / Calculus" and "STUDY AIDS / Advanced Placement".
