went from a scoring a 12 to a 68 on the ALEKS test placing me in Pre Calculus at my college. The course was very effective. The reviews at the end of each subject were great

This website was a great help to me as I needed immediate preparation for the ALEKS. From the registration, to the content, to the explanations given on problems, all of it was a stellar experience. The ones who put this together knew their material and worked successfully to come up with a great product (not the result of multiplication type product, see now I'm even making math jokes haha) that I used daily. I hope others find it as helpful as I did and God bless the ones who put this program together.

Your lessons were phenomenal, and I would be remiss if I didn't give proper feedback.Let me just start by saying I have been putting off (and dreading) taking the ALEKS Math Assessment for about 2 years now. Math hasn't always been my favorite subject, but as I'm getting closer to completing my degree, I could no longer avoid it. I knew that there was a possibility that I would have to take additional courses before I was permitted to take the courses I need for my degree, and that would have pushed my graduation time back, depending on how I performed in those classes, first. With that being said, I found the Mathhelp site, saw that there were great reviews, and decided to give it a try.Going through the lessons, some concepts that I didn't understand in high school, somehow made plenty of sense this time around. I found that your lessons specifically, were the ones I was able to most understand. I think it's your teaching style. You explained things in a "relaxed and casual" way, which made the lessons seem more personable and one on one. The other 2 instructors were great too. 🙂 I had a high hope that these lessons, by some miracle, could possibly help me to test out of any prerequisite classes I would need. Although ALEKS gives you 3 attempts to take the test, I didn't want to have to retake it if I didn't have to.Anyway, I finally took the plunge (ALEKS Assessment attempt #1) and tested out of the prerequisite courses!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm not exaggerating when I tell you I was close to crying when I saw my results.The lessons were everything I could hope for and more. Thank you so much! I took the ALEKS test prep and it went really well because of the help from this program. I got into the class I needed to place into. I think the most helpful thing that was provided was while taking the tests at the end of every question I could see how the math was supposed to look if I got it wrong. It was really helpful for me to go back through that math that I blocked out in high school.

I first want to thank you for the MathHelp lessons. They are well done, in a logical order, and I appreciate that they are short, explain the concept with an example (or more), and that there are practice problems in addition to quizzes and tests -- all with the work written out and explained so I could figure out where and why I went wrong in a problem -- and affirm what I did right. It was the best review of math concepts I found while looking for assistance to prep for the ALEKS math placement test at the local community college in which I enrolled. I am 25 years out of grad school (in a social science field), and as I am jumping back into school to pursue nursing -- a heavier math and science field -- I needed to review the concepts that I was able to test out of a few decades ago.I also liked that I could watch the video at double time speed if it was something I just wanted to quickly review :) The examples with word/story problems also helped immensely! I was faced with a couple of them when I took the ALEKS test, and since I had practiced them (their format), they came a lot easier to me. And finally, the fact that there are links to related topics within each lesson made a difference. I checked out a few of the links to related lessons along the way just to make sure I was understanding things as fully as I felt I was, and those lessons reinforced what I knew and gave me confidence to progress to the next section.As for ALEKS, I scored more than what I needed to place into the math class required to complete my prerequisite for the nursing program. I would highly recommend MathHelp!

The ALEKS lessons were indeed very helpful. Your explanations were clear and well laid-out. I’ve been away from math for nearly 30 years now, and I frankly struggled back then when I was learning. Today, I scored an 84 on my ALEKS placement test, which qualifies me for honors math placement within my school. I’d say you guys are doing something right!If I were highlighting a part that was particularly helpful, I’d pick the logarithms. That’s an area that always flummoxed me, but your explanation has turned that weakness into a strength. Simply brilliant.

My test went amazingly! I felt very prepared in taking the ALEKS placement test. I liked the practice problems and tests and I felt I had a good understanding of the concepts presented to me.

I have not worked with "school" math in almost 25 years. I needed to refresh my knowledge to achieve some personal goals in retirement. Going back to learn something I already knew at one point was/is stressful. These classes were perfect for me! Bite sized, with the information needed and presented at a pace I could follow. I can't rave enough about the solid foundation this gave me. I did try to learn for some books but was not for me. Watching the math get worked out while having someone explain it is superior. I spent one month working with these videos daily and earned a 76 on the ALEKS! Thank you all very much for the help!

Will this course place me into Intermediate Algebra?
Some students are able to place into Intermediate Algebra using this course, but it’s designed to place you into Elementary Algebra. Therefore, anything beyond Elementary Algebra is a bonus.
Will this course place me into College Algebra?
This course is not designed to place you into College Algebra. If you would like to place into College Algebra, we recommend our ALEKS College Algebra Readiness course.
What are the basic skills?
The basic skills that you’ll need to learn to place out of at least one remedial course are the topics you would see in a traditional Pre-Algebra course. These topics include Whole Numbers, Integers, Fractions, Decimals, Ratio, and Proportion, as well as an introduction to Algebra, Geometry, Probability, and Statistics.
