What to expect from a proofreading test.

I'm going to be taking a proofreading test on Thursday, for a job. Does anyone have any advice about this? I've never had a proofreading job before, but my own writing is usually very typo-free, and I notice spelling and grammatical errors in books all the time.

Any directions to good websites on the subject (detailing terminology, proofing symbols, etc.) would be greatly appreciated, too.
