My favorite example, one in which 2 errors are made related to one question is in Sample Test #2. Part 1 Question 2 lists the correct answer in the answer key as choice (2). The Answers Explained section shows you how to arrive at the answer of choice (2). The Answers Explained arrives at the correct number "p=25", which can be inferred as "25 lb/sq in" based on the context of the question, and says that the correct choice is choice (2). Unfortunately in the actual test choice (2) says "24 lb/sq in" and there is no choice for "25 lb/sq in"!! But that isn't the only error in this question. The Answers Explained shows their math. They state that 20*500=1000 !!! Fortunately their division is as bad as their multiplication and divide 1000 by 400 to arrive at 25, the correct answer to be sure just not a choice on the actual sample test.
Two pages later, Part 1 Question 5 has an error in labeling. The correct answer as shown in the sample test should be choice (2) but the Answer Key shows choice (3) as the correct answer. When you read the explanation in the Answers Explained, it is evident that choice (2) is correct. And then it dawns on you that the 4 choices:
were meant to be labeled:
but were instead labeled:
There are more errors all over the book.
Nincompoops created this book! Editors were evidently nonexistent or math illiterate. I only hope that these aren't faithful reproductions of actual Regents exams or I will be challenging my child's grade on the Trig Regents.
