What should I study for the ACCUPLACER Math Test?
Our ACCUPLACER math study guide thoroughly covers the math concepts you’ll see on the ACCUPLACER math test. As you work your way through the guide, you’ll learn which lessons you understand with confidence, the topics for which you need a brief refresher, and the concepts which you still need to master. Our targeted video instruction is designed to teach you concepts you haven’t yet learned and to strengthen the skills that you already have. After you’ve used our guided lessons to build your foundation, you can review everything you've learned by testing yourself at the end!
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.

I am not one to leave reviews ever. But I felt the need to leave a review for Mathhelp.com so other people can know how good this website is! I was skeptical at first having to pay for a PERT study course but I am so glad I did. I hadn't done any math since high school which was 7 years ago for me and I didn't remember anything at all. But I followed this course for 2 weeks and in that time I learned more than I had at years of school. I scored a perfect 150 on my PERT and because of it I got to take the Accuplacer and scored well on that too which placed me in Pre Calc and Trig! It saved me from taking over a year worth of lower level maths and thousands of dollars. For $50 it was definitely worth it and I would recommend it to anyone who needs to take any math placement test or just wants a refresher in math. I only wish all my math courses used mathhelp.com it is by far much superior to Pearsons mymathlab which pails in comparison. The structure of this course was by far the most efficient way I have ever been taught math. I just want to say thank you! Thank you so much! The Accuplacer went amazing. I scored almost the max score even though I didn’t understand anything about math before taking your course. The elements that were most helpful to me were the practices and the reviews at the end of each topics because I could go back and just do all the reviews every day in order to remember everything.

My daughter really liked using mathhelp.com! She needed it for some refresher learning in preparation for her Accuplacer college placement test. Imagine her surprise when she scored so much higher on her math than she thought she was going to! Thank you for your helpful product!

The Accuplacer went well! The instruction videos were very helpful since I haven't done most of this since high school. The practice and the tests were helpful too. Overall, really great!

The Accuplacer went amazing and I'm super happy with my results. The first time I took it I made a 122 score but I needed a 135. With math help I made a 228. I’m so proud of myself. Thanks to the math help videos and explaining the problems step by step it made it easier. I'm a 36 year old woman who graduated in 2003 from high school. I really thought I was not going to make it but thanks to you I did. 😊

I have been out of high school for 30+ years and am going to take a few college courses. I took a practice Accuplacer test and realized that I did not remember hardly any of my high school math so I took the Accuplacer College Level Math prep course. I placed past College Algebra and into Trig with the help of the course.

The preparation for the Accuplacer provided me the ability to do so well on the Accuplacer exam that I was asked to skip College Algebra and go straight into Applied Calculus.

I enjoyed the Accuplacer QAS class very much. All the teachers were really clear. I used a lot of equations and solving for x and multiplication and division of fractions. In general all the material was fine. And i did great on my placement test. Thank you very much.

The Accuplacer Elementary Algebra placement test went great! Keep up the good work and I will most definitely use Mathhelp services in the future and recommend them to others! The Accuplacer went great! I passed! I think it was all very helpful. Thank you so much!

The Next-Gen Accuplacer Arithmetic went really good! I did better than I expected I would! I love how everything was simplified.. the way everything is broken down in each lesson was extremely helpful! Thank you again!

I just received my Accuplacer test scores and I placed 3 classes higher than what I needed to have. All of it was extremely helpful for the AccuPlacer and I really don't see how you can improve on the product considering how straight forward and to the point everything is. The only thing to consider is that the study material gives the basics of what you will see on the actual exam. You will be required to use your own logic, analysis and critical thinking to set up and understand when to use each formula or operation.

I got the highest score in my testing group by using this ACCUPLACER resource. I haven’t done most of this math in almost a decade, but I was able to relearn everything, practice, and test on it. I was extremely impressed with the effectiveness of this course.

Should you study for the ACCUPLACER Math Test?
If you’re taking the ACCUPLACER math test soon, it’s key that you study as much as possible to be certain you do well. There’s quite a bit at stake, as you’ll learn shortly. Our ACCUPLACER math study guide can help identify the areas you need to focus on.
More about the ACCUPLACER Math Test
The ACCUPLACER math test was designed by the same organization that creates the SAT exam each year. However, you’ll find that it’s a very different sort of test. For one, it's untimed, which lets you breathe a bit easier as you work your way through the exam. Also, it’s a computer-adaptive test, which means the difficulty of each question will rise and fall as you answer questions. Get one right and the next question is harder. Get one wrong and the next one is easier. Over time, this matches the questions to your skill level, and your final score is a factor of how many questions you answer correctly and their level of difficulty. Some of the math concepts on the exam include:
- Operations involving whole numbers and fractions
- Operations involving 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 are my ACCUPLACER Exam results used?
The results of your ACCUPLACER math test are used by colleges and universities to determine which math courses you’ll need to complete in order to earn your degree. It’s a placement test, and schools use poor performance as an indicator that remedial math classes are required.
If possible, it’s best to avoid remedial classes, because they don’t earn credits toward your degree, but you have to pay for them. The result is time and money wasted along with the potential for delayed graduation. But the greater risk, as reported by the Brookings Institution, is that students required to take remedial classes when entering college are less likely to complete their degree program than similar students who don’t need remediation. Given the importance of a college education in today’s economy, there’s a lot at stake when taking the ACCUPLACER math test.
How do I study for my ACCUPLACER Math Test?
Our ACCUPLACER math study guide will help. It’s perfectly okay if you’ve forgotten some math concepts and never learned others. This is very common. Our study guide is set up in a very organized way so that you can easily identify areas where you need improvement, and our guided lessons will strengthen your knowledge and boost your performance on test day.
Remember that the ACCUPLACER exam is untimed, so there’s no need to get stressed out when you take your test. Plus you’ll have the confidence that comes from knowing that you’ve done everything you can do to prepare. The MathHelp ACCUPLACER math study guide is your partner in success.
We wish you good luck and a high score!
