I used the website to prepare myself for my math placement test to get to college and I got in!!

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.

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.

## How do I study for GRE math?

### 1. Get plenty of instruction and practice thoroughly

You’ll want a system of review that goes far beyond the typical “drill and kill” GRE math study guide by including comprehensive instruction, guided practice, and interactive tests. All of these features are critical in order for your preparation to be effective. The best programs also feature diagnostic tests, background lessons, and grade reports.

### 2. Focus your energies

Look for GRE Math prep that’s direct and to the point. Don’t waste your time listening to long-winded explanations. And only study the topics that are covered on the test - nothing more and nothing less. The best GRE Math test prep must be incredibly efficient as well.

### 3. Explore your options

Let’s face it. A test prep book with a GRE math practice test is not enough, and classes and tutors are too expensive. Instead, use an online GRE test prep course that leverages the power of technology to offer a balance of affordability and effectiveness.

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

It typically takes one to three months to prepare for the GRE, assuming an hour of study each weekday. In other words, most students need between 20 and 60 hours of preparation. If you’re wondering how to pass the GRE, there’s no substitute for putting in the time to prepare.

## Is GRE math hard?

The GRE math is not as hard as the ACT or SAT, for example, because it doesn’t cover much Algebra 2 or higher-level high school math. However, you may find the GRE math hard in the sense that it uses tricky wording and it presents the problems in unusual ways. That’s why it’s so important to prepare thoroughly and have your math fundamentals down pat.

## Do you need to memorize formulas for GRE?

Yes, you’ll need to memorize formulas as part of your GRE math prep. Unlike some standardized tests, you won’t get a list of formulas that you can use for reference. The formulas that you need to memorize for the GRE should already be quite familiar to you, so there’s no need to panic. Just be sure to review formulas as part of your preparation.

## What is a good score on the GRE?

The scores on the Verbal and Quantitative sections of the GRE range from 130 to 170, and the average score is between 150 and 152. Therefore, a good score on either of these sections of the GRE is 153 or above. The scores on the Analytical Writing section go from 0 to 6, with an average of 3.5, so a good score on this section is 3.6 or above.
