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!

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.

## Is the GMAT math test hard?

GMAT math is not harder than the math you took in high school. The reason most students find the quantitative portion of the GMAT test hard is the word problem format of the questions, many of which ask if there is enough data to solve the problem. Plenty of guided practice is the best way to become a good problem solver.

## Is GRE math easier than GMAT?

Most students think the math portion of the GRE is easier than the GMAT. However, the GRE has more Geometry so the GMAT may be easier for students who prefer problem solving and logic over spatial reasoning. Don’t worry, however, an online review of GMAT math concepts will ensure that your test will not be too difficult.

## How do I prepare for the GMAT math test?

Here are some steps to help you prepare for the test.

1. Commit to a schedule for daily study time, allowing time for breaks. Don’t spend more than an hour or two per session.
2. Find resources and comprehensive instruction that will help you focus on the necessary topics. There are many options including in-person and online courses, tutoring, and study guides. Some of these can be expensive so look for an affordable and efficient approach.
3. Practice your basic math skills until you can use them confidently. A program with diagnostic tests will help you find your weak areas.
4. Employ good test taking strategies. Take your time, read carefully, beware of distractors, move on if a problem seems too hard, and be confident in your answers.
5. Work on managing test anxiety and stress. Confidence in your math skills can make you feel much more relaxed come test day.

## How long will it take to prepare for the GMAT?

You should plan to spend about two to three months studying almost every day. Top-scoring students generally spend over 100 hours preparing. Your time is valuable, so look for efficient GMAT Math instruction that is direct and to the point, reviewing only the concepts that are covered on the test.

## What is the best GMAT math prep online?

Online programs are an efficient way to review for the GMAT math test. However, they can be quite expensive. Fortunately, there are online options that offer the best of both worlds, combining affordability and effectiveness for students preparing for the test.

## What is a high score on the GMAT?

A score above 650 is good and a score of 700 or above is considered acing the test. To get a high score on the GMAT, you will need better than average results on the quantitative section while avoiding a large gap between your Quantitative and Verbal scores.

## How can I improve my GMAT Quantitative score?

1. Know the format of the test and types of questions.
2. Use good test taking strategies such as reading the questions carefully, breaking them into smaller parts, and thinking logically.
3. Be willing to spend an adequate amount of time studying.
4. Get advice from students who took the exam and scored well.
5. Practice your basic math skills until you can use them confidently and comfortably.
6. Sharpen your skills with practices tests.
7. Don’t underestimate the value of a well-balanced review that includes instruction, practice, tests, and grade reports.

## How do I ace GMAT math?

If you’re wondering how to ace the test, make sure to practice as much as possible, review your basic math skills, and concentrate on the areas where your skills are weak. A GMAT math test prep book and practice questions may not be enough. If you really want to ace the test, use an affordable math test prep course with diagnostic tests and background lessons that customize the course to your needs.

## Is GMAT tutoring worth it?

It’s worthwhile to hire a GMAT math tutor if you can afford it. However, they can be very expensive. Fortunately, there are great online options these days that provide the effectiveness of a traditional tutor without the high price tag.

## Do you get a formula sheet on the GMAT math test?

• Arithmetic formulas such as order of operations, real number properties, probability, permutations, and combinations.
• Algebra formulas including absolute value, exponent rules, the quadratic formula, and interest.
• Geometry Formulas, for example: perimeter, area, and volume.
• Problem Solving and Statistics formulas like mean, median, mode, and range.

## Can I use a calculator on the GMAT test?

A calculator is provided on the Integrated Reasoning part of the test. Calculators are not permitted on the Quantitative section of the test. A GMAT math prep course that includes comprehensive instruction, guided practice, and interactive tests can help ensure that your calculation skills will be ready.

## What type of math is on the GMAT?

The GMAT math test uses two types of questions, standard problem-solving questions and higher-level data sufficiency questions. Successfully answering the questions requires math test prep covering the concepts below.

• Integers, Real Numbers, Properties, and Operations
