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

My Accuplacer test went great, the lessons helped a lot. I’d say the most helpful bit was how each subject had the videos, practice, and a test. It really helped me figure out which sections I needed to study more. Thank everyone with MathHelp for your 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 am horrible with math was a blank slate prior to MathHelp as I haven’t touched math in nearly 2 years. I found the short 45 second to 1 min videos to be tremendously helpful. Very straight forward and I never felt lost. I made above average on my accuplacer! Will definitely be using again for standardized tests in the future.

My AccuPlacer test went well. I had taken it once before, but the score wasn’t high enough to get into the program I wanted to get in to. I signed up for MathHelp and when I retook the test, my score went up 20 points. Everything was very helpful— I’m more of an independent learner so it was nice having something where I could pace myself. I liked the way the lessons were sectioned into categories. Thanks! I was able to pass my accuplacer as a sophomore in Highschool within only a couple days of using the program. Thanks to math help I’ve gotten a huge academic head start! My Accuplacer test went super well and I’m really glad that I took this course.

In school I had big problems with math and always considered myself like a liberal arts person. But with this course I prepared for the Accuplacer to be able to take classes I need in college without mandatory remedial classes and I even fell in love with math. And now I understand it very well, thanks to you, and I find it charming to solve different type of equations. Even though English is not my first language I was able to understand everything. So after preparation from scratch I passed this test very easily to the level I needed. So thank you, guys! You’ve made a great product!

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.

I hadn't practiced math in 7 years, but going through the course helped me place high on my Accuplacer QAS test! I'll be attending University this fall and couldn't have done it without MathHelp.com

Your Accuplacer program is great and was such a huge help. I hadn't taken a math class in 30 years and I scored a 267 on the AAF. I liked how each lesson was demonstrated during discussion prior to the exercises. It felt much more like an actual live class, and made things much clearer than other self-paced courses out there. Thanks for making this available!

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.

This program was so helpful. I haven't taken a math course in 20 years and needed to refresh before taking the Accuplacer and going back to school. The test went great, I got a 292/300. It was so great to have access to mathhelp to refresh my long dormant math skills. I found the lessons clear and easy to understand. I loved the feature of being able to skip lessons I already knew. The little diagnostic quizzes were great to let me know which lessons I needed to take and which I could skip. Thank you for your work, I found the website to be such a helpful tool! I would recommend to anyone!

I placed into all my classes that I needed to! The Accuplacer course was awesome. A total refresh. I will also be using Mathhelp when I get into my math classes in the fall.

What is the ACCUPLACER Math Test?
The ACCUPLACER was developed by the College Board, the same institution that provides the well-known SAT. It has been used for over 30 years as a measure of student preparedness for college level math courses. The ACCUPLACER Math Test is a computer-adaptive exam, which means that the number of questions a student is given and the difficulty level of those questions is based on that student’s answers to the preceding questions. Scores are based on both the number of questions answered correctly and the difficulty level of the math problems that are answered. The exam is multiple-choice and is not time-limited, so test-takers have ample opportunity to figure out their answers without racing against the clock. The ACCUPLACER Math Test covers a wide variety of math concepts, including:
- Operations with whole numbers and fractions
- Operations with decimals and percents
- Applications and problem solving
Quantitative Reasoning, Algebra, and Statistics (QAS):
- Rational numbers, ratio and proportional relationships, and exponents
- Algebraic expressions, linear equations, linear applications, inequalities, and graphs
- Geometry concepts, descriptive statistics, and probability sets
Advanced Algebra and Functions (AAF):
- Linear equations, linear applications and graphs, and factoring
- Quadratics, radical and rational equations, and functions
- Polynomial equations, exponential and logarithmic equations, and trigonometry
How will the results of my ACCUPLACER Exam be used?
Colleges and other institutions of higher learning use the ACCUPLACER Math Test as a placement exam. A student’s score determines whether that student will be enrolled in credit-bearing math courses or remedial math classes designed to build necessary skills. Students enrolled in remedial math courses pay tuition for those courses without earning any credit. This not only increases the overall cost of that student’s education, but it can also delay graduation. Furthermore, as the Washington Post reports, students required to participate in remedial courses at the college level are less likely to complete their degrees than their peers who earned credit for all their coursework. In short, the ACCUPLACER has become a high-stakes test with far-reaching consequences.
How can I best prepare for my ACCUPLACER Math Test?
Don’t worry if you’re rusty on some of your math concepts, or if there are others you have never learned! There is plenty you can do to ensure performance on the ACCUPLACER. With individualized instruction and guided practice throughout every ACCUPLACER math lesson, MathHelp goes far beyond practice tests. We offer complete ACCUPLACER Math test prep courses as well.
