  • The CBASE can be taken by students outside of Missouri. Check local colleges to see if the CBASE is offered.
  • The CBASE includes 180 multiple-choice questions in math, English, science and social studies. Some colleges also require an essay.
  • The official CBASE Math Study Guide[1] costs $4.Study guides for other subjects are not available.
