## What type of math is on the SAT?

The math on the SAT is primarily Algebra, so make sure you know your Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, and Algebra 2. You’ll see a little bit of Geometry, but there’s no Pre-Calculus or anything else beyond Algebra 2.

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 can I do better on the SAT math?

To improve your score in a meaningful way, your SAT Math review must go far beyond the typical SAT math study guide by combining all of the following elements.

1. Video instruction, guided practice, and interactive tests will help you develop mastery of the content.
2. Diagnostic quizzes and background lessons will allow you to move quickly if you’re an advanced student or go back to basics if you struggle with math.
3. Chapter reviews and a final exam will solidify your knowledge as you move through your SAT math course.

## How long should I study for the SAT?

In general, you should spend 1 to 3 months studying for the SAT. The amount of time that you spend studying will depend on your background and skill level, but make sure your SAT Math prep is direct and to the point. In other words, the instruction should be concise and the lessons should only include the topics that are covered on the test - nothing more and nothing less. The best SAT Math test prep must be incredibly efficient.

## Is the SAT math subject test hard?

The SAT math subject test isn’t hard if you have a solid understanding of Algebra and Geometry. That’s why the most effective SAT math help will build your Algebra and Geometry foundation from the ground up.

## What is the best way to prepare for SAT math?

In the past, the best way to prepare for the SAT was to use a test prep book with an SAT math practice test or find a tutor or class. Unfortunately, a book was often not helpful enough and in-person instruction was very expensive. Nowadays, you can have the best of both worlds – affordability and effectiveness – by using an online SAT math test prep course that includes the teacher inside of the lessons.

## Is SAT prep worth it?

SAT prep is definitely worth it if you can find a program that uses your time efficiently. For example, instead of commuting to a classroom or juggling schedules with a tutor, find an online program that uses targeted instruction and practice.

## What is the best test prep for SAT?

If you can afford to spend a thousand dollars or more, the best SAT test prep courses are in-person classes provided by Princeton Review and Kaplan. However, your best option may be to find an online course that’s just as effective and much less expensive.

## How early should you start SAT prep?

You should start your SAT prep a few months before the exam. This approach will give you plenty of time no matter how much preparation you need.

## How much does an SAT tutor cost?

The cost of an SAT tutor is about \$70 an hour on average, but the range is anywhere from \$50 to \$200 an hour. How much an SAT tutor costs depends primarily on your location. For example, if you’re in Manhattan, you can expect to pay hundreds of dollars an hour for a tutor.

## Are SAT tutors worth it?

At an average rate of \$70 an hour, the cost of private SAT tutoring can add up to thousands of dollars. If you can afford this kind of a price tag, then it’s worth it. However, most families don’t have this luxury. For the vast majority of students preparing for the SAT, an affordable online program with SAT tutors built into the lessons is the way to go.

## How do I find a good SAT math tutor?

In this day and age, you can find a good SAT math tutor online. Whether you’re looking for a live tutor or an online course, simply do a keyword search. The top results will usually be for live tutors or tutoring centers in your area. However, if you look beyond the first page, you can find online programs like MathHelp.com that simulate the private SAT math tutoring experience very well.
