Theory Fundamentals Review



Students who have studied theory in high school or elsewhere may want to place out of Fundamentals and begin in Theory I or higher.  Passing the Fundamentals Placement Exam is the required first step.

Material on this page will help you prepare for the Fundamentals Placement Exam.   Fundamentals is a part of every theory placement test.  If you think you can bypass the Fundamentals class and begin in a higher level of theory, it is important to review fundamentals and show that you can do well on the basics.
