The COBE placement tests for ITM 104, 105, and 106 can be taken at the Boise State Testing Center on a walk-in basis. The test is designed to test students’ knowledge in Microsoft Word, Excel, and Access (2016 Office Suite). Please refer to our hours of operation before taking the exam. The test requires an access code booklet (more details on that below). Each access code grants access to the ITM 104, 105, and 106 tests, and allows two attempts of each. You do not need to purchase 3 booklets. Tests have a time limit of 2 hours. Please arrive early enough to finish your exam before closing.

Purchasing The Test:

Please be sure to purchase the correct access code, some code booklets look similar but cost much more. In the event that the book store is out of vouchers, the exam can be purchased form your computer at the testing center as a backup option. Please bring a valid credit card with you if you were unable to purchase a test code at the bookstore.
