I have not worked with "school" math in almost 25 years. I needed to refresh my knowledge to achieve some personal goals in retirement. Going back to learn something I already knew at one point was/is stressful. These classes were perfect for me! Bite sized, with the information needed and presented at a pace I could follow. I can't rave enough about the solid foundation this gave me. I did try to learn for some books but was not for me. Watching the math get worked out while having someone explain it is superior. I spent one month working with these videos daily and earned a 76 on the ALEKS! Thank you all very much for the help!

My ALEKS test went really well! After not using math in over 7 years after using the MathHelp lessons I placed into calc which was a higher course then I needed! I genuinely loved the program and the structure of it. The videos are short and to the point and the practice problems allow for you to mess up before you take the test. Thank you for creating this site and offering at an affordable rate!

I was able to score an 81 on my ALEKS test which was far more than satisfactory for the placement I needed. I really enjoyed the clear explanations in the videos! All of the presenters did such an amazing job of clearly explaining the material, and the fact that you could speed the videos up and still really understand what they were saying was a game changer. All in all I was very pleased with the quality of the site, it reminded me of the way my favorite math teacher in high school taught. Such an amazing resource!

My ALEKS test went really well, much better than I needed to place into a class in fact. I thought the teaching was excellent at mathhelp.com. There was just enough information provided to answer the questions without any extra fluff. If I need additional help I’ll look to enroll in another mathhelp course to boost my chances of success

I'm a 40 year old going back to college at Penn State online to finish my business degree. I have not taken a math class in 20 years and when I found out that I had to take the Aleks test, I researched tutorials online. Out of the many tutorials that I sampled before I purchased, mathhelp.com was the best at providing short lessons that were to the point. I finally understand Algebra because of these lessons. I took the Aleks test this week and scored high enough to place me into Algebra II.After Algebra II, my only other math class will be Calculus. That was my goal and I accomplished it. I do plan on using mathhelp.com again when I start Algebra II in the spring semester and also when I take Calculus. Because of this tutorial, I am no longer terrified of math!

We accomplished what we set out to do with successful ALEKS results. This site was very well put together. Glad I used it and I would recommend it.

As a 27 year-old returning back to finish my degree, it has been quite a while since I’ve been in a math course. After taking my ALEKS exam and only scoring a 54, I was extremely disappointed. I quickly signed up for your course and am pleased to say that after the completion of your ALEKS prep, I scored a 74, and I was able to test into the advanced math class my new degree requires. The entire course was exceptional, and I am very grateful for the thorough education.

The ALEKS went fantastic! It’s been 20 years since high school so all the topic were very helpful since I didn’t remember a thing but as I started seeing the lessons flow one from the other and gradually getting heavier, it was all coming back. The flow was the best part - the connection between lessons and how it gradually progressed. I am very grateful!

Will this course place me out of College Algebra?
This course is designed to place you INTO College Algebra. If you would like to place OUT of College Algebra, then we recommend our ALEKS Pre-Calculus course.
What is the ALEKS PPL?
The ALEKS PPL (Placement, Preparation, and Learning) is the test used by many colleges to determine which course you’ll be placed into. Depending on the results of your test, you could be placed into any course all the way up to Calculus. If your goal is to place into College Algebra, for example, you’ll want to take an ALEKS College Algebra Readiness course.
How long does the ALEKS PPL take?
The ALEKS PPL takes about an hour to complete and is composed of approximately 30 questions.
Do I have to take College Algebra?
If you plan to major in a STEM related field, you will most likely be required to take College Algebra. However, you may be required to take it even if you aren’t in a STEM related field.
