As a college coach of 12 years, just because it is open book doesn't make the recruiting test easy! The NCAA recruiting test is 40 questions each year and you can miss 8. The questions cover basically 300 pages of rule and bylaw after bylaw. Having the book is useless if you do not know where to look! So you actually have to study the book, the practice tests, and any knew legislation each year. There has been some years I have missed 1 on the test, where as this year I missed 8!!!!
Just use the online version and control F to search for any terms in the question. But hey old folks have a hard time. I get it.
THe recruiting test?
If you take the practice test three times, then you will have seen 90% of the questions on the actual test.
If that's not easy enough for you, just search the online version of the book.
There's going to be an adjustment for the HS coach coming to college, but it certainly shouldn't be the recruiting test.
