Credit By Exam Study Guide
This Credit By Exam Study Guide can help you prepare for the exam by giving you an idea of
what you need to study, review, and learn. To succeed, you should be thoroughly familiar with
the subject matter before you attempt to take the exam.
Every question that appears on the Credit by Exam/Examination for Acceleration is grounded in
the knowledge and skills statements and student expectations within the state-mandated
standards, the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). It should be noted that an exam
will not test every student expectation. However, it is important that students study and know
the entire scope of the TEKS so that they can develop a complete understanding of the content.
The CBE/EAs are a global exam grounded in the TEKS and are not designed to be a final exam
for the University of Texas high school courses. You can view the TEKS for this exam online at
http://www.tea.state.tx.us/teks/. Since questions are not taken from any one source, you can
prepare by reviewing any of the state-adopted textbooks.
About the exam
The Credit By Exam consists of 50 multiple-choice questions that are worth 2 points each. You
will be allowed 3 hours to take the exam and you will be allowed to use a graphing calculator.
You will also be provided the Formula Sheet found in this Study Guide.
Materials Provided
For paper-based exams, a formula sheet will be provided with your test. For computer-based
exams, the proctor will provide to you a paper copy of the formula sheet immediately prior to
testing. You will return the sheet after the exam. An example of the formula sheet follows.

Concepts and Objectives
The bulleted list and sample questions below may not refer to all the material that will be in the
exam. This list only provides additional information for some of the student expectations tested
in the Geometry, Second Semester Credit by Exam. Ultimately, you should use the TEKS to
guide your exam preparation.
The second semester of Geometry focuses on dilations, similarity, similar triangle postulates,
using similar triangles, the Pythagorean Theorem, special right triangles, right triangle
trigonometry, properties of quadrilaterals, properties of circles, areas of plane figures, and three
dimensional figures.
For the exam, you should be able to
• use dilations to enlarge or reduce figures;
• create an accurate scale drawing of a figure given the original figure drawn on a grid and
a scale factor;
• determine whether or not two figures are similar;
• use theorems and postulates to prove that two figures are similar;
• use a scale factor to determine the lengths of corresponding sides and the angle measures
of corresponding vertices of a similar figure;
• use a proportional relationship to determine the length of a corresponding side of a
similar figure;
• find the distance between two points and their midpoint, in two and three dimensions;
• use Pythagorean triplets to determine the missing lengths of the sides of a right triangle;
• apply the Pythagorean Theorem to solve problems;
• use what you know about 30-60 right triangles and 45-45 right triangles to determine the
missing lengths of the sides of a right triangle;
• use the sine, cosine, and tangent ratios to determine the missing angles or the missing
lengths of the sides of a right triangles;
• use the arithmetic Triangle Inequality Theorem to find a range of lengths for the missing
side of a trangle;
• use the properties of quadrilaterals to calculate the lengths of missing parts of the figure;
• use the properties of quadrilaterals to sketch figures on a coordinate plane;
• use the properties of quadrilaterals to state relationships between the angles of a figure;
• use the properties of special parallelograms to solve problems;
• write the equation of a circle drawn on a coordinate plane, given the center and the
radius, or given the endpoints of the diameter;
• identify tangent circles, secants, chords, tangent lines, radii, diameters, and external
tangents of a drawing;
• use the properties of tangent lines, chords, secants, arcs, and central angles to solve
problems;
