The lessons helped me tremendously on my math placement test. I’m attending the University of Alabama this fall. I finished my associates degree in 2016, so I haven’t taken math classes in a long time. After doing the lessons I placed out of the intermediate classes I didn’t want to take, and into calculus. Taking this course has saved me around $2,000 in classes, and my graduation date was moved up. I’d say it was a great investment!

Very smooth remedial lessons and it helped refresh my memory on things I had forgotten about. Overall it was very worth it and I'm ready to take my math placement test this coming month.

My daughter used Mathhelp.com to prepare for the Accuplacer math placement test at her university. The school required a score of 279 on the Quantitative Reasoning test to move on to the Accuplacer AAF. The first time, she took it cold and scored a 270, so she was not able to move on to the AAF test. Then she studied on your site and got a 299 on the QR and a 292 on the AAF test, so she is good to go!Your website is very well planned to maximize results while minimizing time investment. The method that worked best for my daughter was to take the practice quiz for each section and then read explanations or watch videos of the problems she missed. That way she wasn't spending time watching videos on topics she already knew/remembered well. I then had her take the full practice tests once she had gone through all of the videos she needed to. Sometimes she didn't even need to view the videos -- your explanations of answers were sufficient in most cases to tell her what she needed to know, but the videos were very helpful when she needed a bit more explanation/step-by-step instruction. Up until this year, she has always done well in math, but a crummy teacher combined with covid virtual school made this year a very tough year for her, and she has lost a lot of confidence as a result. I hope that seeing how well she can do with a bit of good teaching/support has shown her that she can be successful again in this college calculus course.Overall, I was very impressed with how well your website prepared her for the tests, as evidenced by her scores. I will also use your site as she prepares to take the PSAT next year.

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 graduated high school in 1992, that was the last time I did any math related to algebra. I never went into college. 20 plus years later I decided to enroll. I needed to take the PERT placement test for Math. I had a bit of panic because I didn't remember anything; so I would have to learn as much as I could within a month because of deadlines with the school. I stumbled upon MathHelp.com while google searching Pert Test help. They offer 3 free lessons and it is a nice introduction into how the website works. I signed up for a month.Topics are broken down into a specific area; ie: Quadratic Equations. These are further broken down into bite size lessons that go through a specific part of the main lesson. Each lesson is explained in a logical and practical way that is easy to understand. After each mini lesson you can either practice or take a test on what you learned. When you finish a topic you get a review test on mixed questions based on all the lessons in that topic.I studied with them 2 hours a day minus weekends. Though I didn't get through all the areas because of time restraints; I did manage to go through the majority of it.The day of the test arrived and a few questions that I did not recognize were on the exam. However, even though I had not studied those specific problems, I knew the process on how to work through them. In the end for an old dude who hadn't studied in a long time I scored a 124 out of 150, enough to be able to select college Algebra. If I had been afforded the time to hit every section and really get mastery of it, I probably could have scored higher.I highly recommend signing up for this site if you are struggling with higher level math and or need a refresher on it. The teachers are amazing and each lesson is presented clearly and simply. The fact that you can practice them over and over really reinforces their lessons.Another good thing is unsubscribing. Most sites are sneaky and in order to cancel you have to find a number from some other site. While MathHelp.com is auto renew you can basically just click a button that says unsubscribe.If I end up having trouble in math this semester I will definitely be subscribing again. I can't thank them enough and highly recommend them. Worth every penny.

It helped me quite a bit as I got 91 score at UMass placement test which enabled me to enroll directly into Calculus.
