My ALEKS test went well when I used MathHelp! The most helpful tool to use was the review at every section and especially the final exam feature at the end. I loved having practice taking math tests again. It had been a long time! I loved how if I had a problem understanding any topic, I could use the links provided to go back and understand the background for each step. (For me, this applied to a lot of the exponential expressions and geometry stuff). I can't thank you enough for your program! It was great and I feel so much more confident about my success in my math classes coming up!

The Accuplacer test went well. I was aiming for intermediate algebra so that way I could go straight into statistics for my nursing program. I scored 267 on next-gen quantitative reasoning, algebra and statistics along with a score of 241 in next-gen advanced algebra and functions and placed perfectly into statistics, so thank you again. I believe all of the word problems on the website helped. Any standard graphing, algebra, or geometry questions that came up on the test I was able to solve without much difficulty. I’m coming from graduating high school in 2011 and I have been out of practice with math.

I started using MathHelp because I was going to take a placement test to go back to College. The test went really well. My score on Quantitative Reasoning, Algebra, and Statistics was 274 which is very good for the Next-Gen Accuplacer test. The lady at the College said it was the best score she had seen in a while. I have nothing but to thank MathHelp for the review and the very well structured and easy to follow classes, it really helped me. I'm starting College Algebra this upcoming Spring Semester and will definitely come back to MathHelp in case I need some outside help.

I qualified for my goal of College Algebra. I haven't taken a math class since 2004 and have always disliked it. I found your Accuplacer QAS and AAF lessons to be easy to follow and actually looked forward to them. I liked that the videos and lessons were short so that I could stay focused with review questions at the end. I am very happy with my results, and I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to prepare for the test. i’m

Mathhelp was very helpful. I never went past Algebra 1 in High School, and then 7 years later I needed to place into precalculus to pursue my first college degree. I studied through all of the ALEKS Mathhelp lessons, and then I got a 64 on the test, placing into the math class I needed to be in.Thank you so much for all the help.

I passed the Accuplacer! Thank you for the help. The way the course was set up felt like I was in a real classroom, where I could see the work being done with tips and tricks here and there. The practice questions after the introduction helped alot as well. I will definitely sign up again if I need math help again. The lessons on fractions, and all algebra lessons helped the most. Honestly, the whole course helped especially after not having math for 5 years.

I'm a returning college student who hasn't taken a math class in nearly 5 years. I felt like I needed somewhere I could build on my fundamentals, so I turned to MathHelp. I started with the first ALEKS lesson on MathHelp, watching all the videos, and taking every test until I could pass with a 100% all the way up to the end of exponential and logarithmic equations, which was lesson 179. Overall, I'm very satisfied with my time using MathHelp. Topics I remember as being complicated, like logarithms, were actually very easy to understand thanks to the short video format of the lessons. Recently I took the ALEKS placement assessment and scored well enough to place into pre calculus. I’m impressed I was able to do that well, going from barely remembering the fundamentals of algebra to nearly placing into calculus.

I subscribed to the course for my daughter who needed extra help in algebra 2. She found it very helpful. I would say that hearing the material taught by someone other than her school teacher and having all the extra exercises available to do were the most helpful for her. I can’t think of anything you could do to make it better.

I absolutely love MathHelp. I had not taken a math class in over 30 years and math has always been a difficult subject for me, so for me to be able to prep for the PERT test, place into College Algebra, and then get an A in the class - that was amazing! I have recommended MathHelp to friends and family and will continue to do so.

I am so glad I found your program - it helped me so much. I've been out of school for over 20 years and I recently enrolled in the Kansas State dietetics program. I was freaking out over the algebra placement exam because I couldn't remember anything. After completing your program, I scored a 34 (I only needed a 21 to get into college algebra). So, thank you for your great program, I couldn't have done it without you 😃

I am a 50+ who decided to go back to school late in life. I need to take College Algebra to obtain my degree. To avoid prerequisite math classes, I needed to pass their placement test.It has been a “a few years” since I took a math class. I needed to study and searched for online courses. I came across many sites, but Mathhelp.com had the best setup, so I signed up. The course covers everything you will need to know. I went through the entire course and took the final exam a few times as reinforcement.The courses are put together in an easy-to-follow manner and provide everything you will need to pass any math test. The layout was easy to follow. The video, followed by practice, followed by the questions were so easy to follow. It is all on one page. There is no navigating back and forth. If you get one wrong, you are given a step-by-step explanation on how to get the correct answer. The reinforcement of each concept is helpful. The videos really make it so easy to learn. The three instructors are great and teach each subject clearly and in a detailed manner.Whether your child is struggling in elementary school, or you are a college student who needs some extra help, Mathhelp.com is the solution to your needs.I aced my placement test. I now feel fully prepared for the College Algebra class I'm taking next semester. I highly recommend this course.

My College Algebra course went well thanks to your program. The most helpful elements to me were the multiple videos of explanations that started off extremely basic and built up difficulty. I do not learn very well when I get blasted in the face with information then an overly difficult problem. Also the practice tests helped with learning and then performing which helped me retain the lesson.

I was attempting to place into calculus I and I did achieve that. I scored an 85 on the ALEKS. I was a very poor student in high school just so you understand the full picture. I'm trying to catch up on things I should have had a basic foundation in back then. So it was really nice to have a refresher course on all the rules and properties of math and algebra leading up to the calculus portions. Overall, I think the material was very well put together on your site. Clear and concise.

WONDERFUL PROGRAM!! Our first year of homeschooling and the program we were using left my daughter in tears over her 10th grade Geometry. We switched to Math Help and glad we did!! The teachings were easy to understand and kept at a good pace, not overwhelming. She got her Geometry credit without tears!! Thank you Math Help for offering this service! Well done!!

I found the algebra sections to be the most helpful. I passed my MEGA middle school math test, thanks to your site! I tried Mometrix and failed the first time, but I used your site for just 2 months and passed with flying colors!

As a math-phobe, I needed as much help on the FTCE math test as could get. A teacher at my school suggested your program. I loved your back-to-basics approach to help someone like me, a 58-year-old who never liked or could do math. I found your instructions and lots of practice questions and tests to be extremely helpful. I took many of the questions over and over again to get the steps correct. I always especially had trouble with measurements and geometry, and I think your program helped ease my anxiety and confront those questions head on. It also helped me get straight in my head the positives/negatives and when they apply in addition, multiplication, etc., as well as how to take a word problem and make it into a solvable algebra equation. It was an extremely helpful program for me. Keep up the great work!

That course was the absolute reason in my success of the TSIA2 test. I did pass it and can take College level algebra instead of developmental math. Specifically speaking, the quadratic equations, functions/graphing, linear equations in two variables and expressions, equations and formulas really helped. So I'd most definitely give that course a lot of credit to helping me pass.

The Accuplacer Elementary Algebra exam went really well. I was able to place into my appropriate college algebra class, and I surprised myself with my score even. I had not been in school for years and the courses on MathHelp made jumping back in so much easier. There were so many helpful elements of the course. The instructional videos and the practice exam were instrumental in helping me.
