My ALEKS test went well and I was able to get into the class I wanted without having to take any prerequisite classes. Being able to check back on the tests how the work was to be done was the most helpful to me in understanding how to solve problems. I found this program very easy to follow.Jill Bobolz - June 2022
My ALEKS test went well. I feel more confident of understanding the material in the classes I qualify for. I liked that the topics were broken down into short, easy to follow videos. It was also helpful to see a breakdown of how to work out a problem. It allowed me to see where I went wrong on a practice question so that I can correct my work. I have this site saved in my favorites for the future when I eventually take a math course at college.Michelle Davis - May 2022
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.Jason Smith - April 2022
This course was perfect and completely prepared me to take my ALEKS test.Porter Godfrey - February 2022
Thank you so much!! Amazing program, recommending it to anyone who is planning on taking the ALEKS tests!JT Mitchell - January 2022
This is the best class I have ever taken. The professors are so clear in explaining the ALEKS math concepts. Thank you so much for making math possible for me.Ashley Woodbury - December 2021
I will recommend this to anyone who has to take the ALEKS test, as well as any other math assistance you can give. I took the ALEKS and passed! I'm ecstatic with the results and it was well worth it, thank you!!Jay Bard - October 2021
The ALEKS program was extremely helpful-- I was able to refresh my skills for a placement test and it was easy to understand and follow along. I wish this would have been a learning option when I was in school.Kelsi Dunn-McKellar - October 2021
My ALEKS exam went well, and I scored well above what was required to be able to enroll in the course I need to take. It has been quite a while since I have taken a math class; I have returned to school to become a speech language pathologist, and was extremely intimidated when I found out that a statistics course was required for certification. Your program helped me remember things I haven't thought about in years, and also gave me something I never had before, which is confidence in my math skills! I will also need to take a few physics-oriented courses, and am glad to be heading into those courses knowing that I can handle the math skills required of me to succeed. There is no way I could have done as well as I did without your program! Thank you for building something so beneficial.Katie Fowler - July 2021
Your lessons were phenomenal, and I would be remiss if I didn't give proper feedback. Let me just start by saying I have been putting off (and dreading) taking the ALEKS Math Assessment for about 2 years now. Math hasn't always been my favorite subject, but as I'm getting closer to completing my degree, I could no longer avoid it. I knew that there was a possibility that I would have to take additional courses before I was permitted to take the courses I need for my degree, and that would have pushed my graduation time back, depending on how I performed in those classes first. With that being said, I found the Mathhelp site, saw that there were great reviews, and decided to give it a try. Going through the lessons, concepts that I didn't understand in high school somehow made plenty of sense this time around. I think it's your teaching style. You explained things in a "relaxed and casual" way, which made the lessons seem more personable and one on one. The other 2 instructors were great too. ? I had a high hope that these lessons, by some miracle, could possibly help me to test out of any prerequisite classes I would need. Although ALEKS gives you 3 attempts to take the test, I didn't want to have to retake it if I didn't have to. Anyway, I finally took the plunge (ALEKS Assessment attempt #1) and tested out of the prerequisite courses!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm not exaggerating when I tell you I was close to crying when I saw my results. The lessons were everything I could hope for and more. Thank you so much!Katitia Marietta - June 2021
Very helpful. Took ALEKS exam and passed with flying colors. Thank you!Jessica Herzog - May 2021
Our daughter used it to review for her ALEKS math placement test at college. She said that the mathhelp lessons were very thorough and that she appreciated the "tips and tricks." A 75 was needed to place her in a calculus I class, and she scored 85.Jessica Zbavitel - April 2021
Helped improve my ALEKS score drastically.Agustin Palacios - March 2021
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 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.John Rodriguez - March 2021
Very helpful in preparing for the ALEKS test. You have a great program!Emma Blair - February 2021
This ALEKS program was outstanding!! It was very in depth and easy to follow. I was able to test into the last collegiate math class I needed after not attending school for 10 years. Thank you for all the help!Andrew Niccoli - January 2021
Just following up to let you know I took the ALEKS the morning and received 76 for a score. I placed into what I needed. Thank you for the classes, they are great. Luis Ramos - January 2021
The ALEKS course was very helpful! I had not taken a math course in 5 years, so it was definitely good for me to go back and review a lot of the material I had forgotten over the years. I thought that everything was structured very nicely, and it was very simple to find the information I needed if I was unsure of how to solve a particular problem. I really like the large amount of examples and practice questions that are provided before attempting to do them independently. I have no complaints at all, I think the course is fantastic, even for people who may need to refresh their math skills.Kyle Beckman - January 2021
What is the ALEKS Test?
ALEKS (Assessment and Learning in Knowledge Spaces) is an online tutoring and assessment program that includes course material in mathematics, chemistry, introductory statistics, and business.
Rather than being based on numerical test scores, ALEKS uses the theory of knowledge spaces to develop a combinatorial understanding of the set of topics a student does or doesn’t understand from the answers to its test questions. Based on this assessment, it determines the topics that the student is ready to learn and allows the student to choose from interactive learning modules for these topics.
ALEKS was initially developed at UC Irvine starting in 1994 with support from a large National Science Foundation grant. The software was granted by UC Irvine’s Office of Technology Alliances to ALEKS Corporation under an exclusive, worldwide, perpetual license. In 2013, the ALEKS Corporation was acquired by McGraw-Hill Education.
ALEKS is available for a variety of courses and subjects that cover K-12, higher education, and continuing education, ranging from basic arithmetic and chemistry to pre-calculus and MBA financial accounting preparation.
