Music Theory Placement test tomorrow... HELP!!
So, I'm new to these forums... hope I joined the right place!
Here's the scoop...
I'm attending high school, and I am taking a placement test for a music theory class tomorrow. I have heard the test is hard. I took guitar lessons for a while, and I know some things... but I am not sure what to expect on the test. I heard that weird questions are on the test, such as counting out beats in 7/2 time signature, among other things. I really only know the basics, and I am scared that I may fail.
I know if I started the class, I could cach up in no time; I'm a bit rusty, and my dad plays guitar as well (he understands theory better than I do). I could study over the summer as well, to further my understanding before I take the class next school year... but first, I have to do well on this exam.
If there is anyone out there who is in high school, and knows what may be expected of me on such a test, could you possibly give me a short list of what I absolutely must know? Even if you are not in a high school class, could anyone help me out?
Thanks a bunch for your help!!!
