Don’t waste time and money on programs that aren’t going to place you out of College Algebra. Use our one-of-a-kind CLEP study guide to ace your exam and receive College Algebra credit without having to suffer through the actual course. Click below to get started!
The College Algebra CLEP study guide from MathHelp takes a proactive approach that eliminates unnecessary effort so that every moment you devote to your studies is time well spent. A pre-test at the beginning of each section checks your knowledge and allows you to skip concepts you already know well. This technique allows you to focus like a laser beam on the gaps in your knowledge. Better yet, we pair this diagnostic tool with easy-to-follow video explanations and powerful practice sessions, so that our CLEP Algebra study guide will have you more prepared for your exam than you ever thought possible.
“I managed to pass the CLEP College Algebra test. I found each section of your course exceptionally useful and organized in a consistent and logical manner, allowing me to build a repository of knowledge on how to properly solve each type of equation. Algebra has been a boogie man for me for a very long time and in passing the CLEP test, I finally earned my degree a year and a half after finishing all of my other requirements.”
— DAVID BOLHUIS
Do CLEP study guides actually work?
They do when they’re designed properly. For example, a CLEP College Algebra study guide that actually works is going to steer you toward the concepts you don’t know yet. Then it needs to break things down into easily digestible steps, preferably using multimedia instruction. This combination of diagnostics and video is the magic recipe for a study guide that works wonders.
How many questions are on the College Algebra CLEP?
Students are given 90 minutes to answer 60 questions on topics ranging from graphs and inequalities to linear and quadratic equations. There are also a number of pretest questions that aren’t included in your final score.
Is the CLEP College Algebra test multiple choice?
Yes, the CLEP College Algebra exam is a computer-delivered, multiple-choice test. It’s important to note that there is no penalty for a wrong answer, so students are encouraged to answer every question, even if it’s just a guess. A blank answer will always be wrong, while even a wild guess has a chance to be right.
The CLEP College Algebra exam is a standardized test that grants successful test-takers with the college credit they would normally get from taking a College Algebra class. As such, the test covers material that would normally be found in a standard College Algebra course.
Topics covered include graphs and inequalities; linear and quadratic equations; algebraic, exponential, and logarithmic functions; and various other concepts. Roughly half the exam consists of routine problems that test basic operations, while the rest of the exam requires a more holistic understanding and an ability to solve novel problems.
How do you study for the CLEP College Algebra?
Stay focused on math concepts covered on the exam. Don’t waste time on irrelevant material.
Commit important formulas to memory as you work through your CLEP College Algebra study guide so that they’re readily accessible when you need them.
Identify your weak areas and keep tabs on your progress with a practice test. How you do on your practice test indicates how you’ll do on the actual exam, so be sure you can ace it.
Keep practicing until you no longer struggle with the concepts and the steps flow naturally.
Double-check your work to avoid unnecessary mistakes.
Make sure you can finish your practice test in the allotted time so that you won’t be cut short when you’re taking the real thing.
My TSI went well and I passed all portions of the test. I found every section of your course extremely helpful. I appreciate all the help your lessons provided and couldn't have asked to find a better TSI study guide. Thanks again.

The 6th grade course went well. It was really helpful for my daughter to practice. The best part is that you have categorized the course according to STAAR requirements. It is really easy to pick one area and focus on it. The material is at students' level which they can easily understand. Highly recommend this website and would join again for STAAR tests next time.

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!

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.
14:07 12 Apr 20
The placement test went well and I avoided all remedial math classes. The information was presented in an easy way to understand.
18:46 09 Apr 20
It was actually incredibly helpful and I ended up doing really well on my math placement test because of it! I think what helped me most were the videos and the careful explanations. Even if it was something I already knew it served as a helpful reminder. I’m very grateful!

I don't usually write reviews, but I am so grateful for this product. Because of MathHelp, my NES Middle Grades test went great!!! I got 60 points more than the minimum passing score and I felt prepared for the test for sure. So many of the problems looked like they were straight from MathHelp, and I was broadly practiced for all parts of the test. This is a resource I have already recommended and will continue to recommend to others in my grad school program for teaching. MathHelp is an affordable, self-paced, and relevant curriculum when practicing for the NES- I couldn't be happier with the money I spent.

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.
19:53 01 Mar 20
I had a good score on my math placement test. It allowed me to skip the first course and I could have skipped the second if we did not have to forcefully take it. The part that served me the most was polynomial factorization. Besides, the teachers are super clear and the exercises very useful. 100% recommended.

I would give this site more than five stars if I could. I used this to prepare for the MTLE NES Math test, and I passed. Thank you!!!
00:01 02 Feb 20
The PRAXIS Algebra 1 test went very well! I received a passing score of 154, which was 13 points higher than when I took it previously. The lessons that were most beneficial to me were the problems focusing on deciphering word problems, imaginary numbers, and functions. These were the areas I had struggled with previously. I absolutely LOVED how the lessons built off one another and worked together as a whole. Also, thank you for providing links to previous lessons in order to build further background knowledge. I have recommended your program to many fellow teachers. Thank you!
23:43 20 Jan 20
Extremely helpful. I haven't studied math in like 5 years but I enrolled in the TSI test and I absolutely killed the TSI math test. The lessons are concise, straight to the point and covers every aspect
20:52 18 Jan 20
I passed my FTCE exams! Really excited over here. Your lessons were explained well with your pauses after explaining important elements of a problem. I also liked your extension questions after a lesson. All of the general knowledge and elementary education content was extremely helpful as it’s been 20 years since I had studied most of it in school. Finally, the test features were very helpful as they generated new questions each time you took them. This was useful for me so I could drill myself until I understood it. Thanks to the teachers on the site!
18:16 29 Dec 19
The ASVAB test ended up going better than I expected. I have been out of high school for 11 years and I was studying to retake the test and improve my scores. The website helped out tremendously! Being able to select the course I want to focus on and have it all laid out was very helpful. As well as the videos breaking down how to solve the problems before starting the practice. For me, the way everything is broken down and set up was great.
13:55 11 Dec 19
If I could rate this program higher than 5, I'd give it a thousand stars!!!!!! Thank you, MathHelp!The CBEST went very well and I passed the Math section with a score higher than I expected and on the first try (and math is my worst subject by far)! I was very happy with the MathHelp test prep course and found it to be the most helpful online exam prep I shopped around for. The most helpful part was that the course broke the math concepts down to the most basic step before solving the example problems, and that the course started with the rounding and place values. Mrs. Peterson is also extremely good at explaining and making the lessons interesting so I could stay focused. Thank you again.
17:49 07 Dec 19
The TEAS test went very well. The site really helped me brush up on my math skills. The site is very user friendly and it was nice being able to test my knowledge to see if I could skip any lessons.
16:55 03 Dec 19
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.
16:02 06 Nov 19
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!
12:52 26 Oct 19
I thought the test prep program was really beneficial, and I would definitely have not passed the ALEKS placement exam had I not done it as a refresher. I’m a college senior, and the most recent math class I’ve taken was calculus in early high school, I haven't seen some of these problems since 6th and 7th grade, literally almost ten years ago!The sections that were the most helpful for me were the geometry, algebra/polynomials, and the word problem sections. There were at least 2 questions on the ALEKS test that were almost word-for-word out of the mixture word problems section. Overall, very good.
16:43 17 Sep 19
I can’t describe how amazing this website is! Best explanations in the whole web! Definitely recommend this to everyone. If it weren’t for this, I would’ve never passed the hardest math test of my entire life.
18:21 07 Sep 19
The NCDAP went great! I graduated high school in 2007 and since then had taken no math courses. I was nervous about doing poorly on the placement test and having to pay additional money for remedial math courses. I tested some of the video tutorials and was really excited to see that they were painfully simple for people like me who are not good at math. I took the test and was pleased to see that all the topics from the test were covered by your website. I placed out of all developmental math, so I did not need to take any extra classes. I’ll be using your course again in the future when I plan to take the TEAS test. The most helpful elements were the simplicity and clarity of the explanations. In the past, I’ve had math teachers skip over some of the “simpler” steps in a problem which they considered more obvious. But your website made sure with each problem to explain all the steps thoroughly. I appreciated this aspect. Another part of your course I found helpful was that it focused on teaching one thing at a time. For my purposes, I can’t see how the course could be improved! It did exactly what I needed it to do.
19:48 05 Sep 19
Your lectures were very thorough and easy to follow. There was so much good material and practice for the ALEKS. If I ever need to again I’ll be using math help for a review to test out of a class! I’ll for sure let people know it’s worth it to use Mathhelp.
20:03 27 Aug 19
I took and passed the math TSI exam on my first attempt. I am a 35 year old that hasn’t used formulas, geometry, algebra or any other advanced math since high school. The TSI prep that y’all offered was better than any YouTube or practice test I had tried. I think you guys have got the best tool on the market. I used it as an all-around refresher and was able to have the confidence I needed to excel with the test. The way it was broken up into lessons, videos, practice and quizzes gives the student the ability to pick and choose exactly what they need help with.
12:13 24 Aug 19
I actually placed out of a couple math courses and saved myself 3 free credits! Honestly everything in your math placement test course was very helpful and there’s nothing in my opinion that needs improvement. Thanks.
14:51 23 Aug 19
My ALEKS test went well and I got into the math class I wanted to. I liked the videos that you can watch to help with the math problems, they were short enough that they kept my attention but also explained the problem so that I understood it! I personally loved everything about MathHelp.
17:12 16 Aug 19
The MathHelp site was a tremendous help to me! I found this site after failing the 1-6 NYSTCE math exam the first time I took it. I have been out of college for 20 years and needed a major refresher course on math before attempting it again. I passed both the Birth-2nd math test as well as the 1-6 math test the first time after going through the MathHelp site. I love that the course has the three elements of video instruction, practice questions and test questions. Thank you!
14:45 15 Aug 19
I signed my daughter up for your ALEKS test review with the hope that she would at least test in to the Pre-Calculus course that is required for her major. She just took the test two days ago at her orientation and, as it turns out, she did well enough to be exempted from all math classes at UGA! The course was very helpful and enabled her to eliminate the required math class, giving her a lighter class load as she gets used to being a new college student.
22:11 26 Jul 19
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.
12:12 25 Jul 19
The CBEST test went well, as I received a scaled score of 66. Element wise, the videos were SUPER helpful. They were clear and to the point, and their short length made it very digestible. The practice questions were also awesome in that they had additional videos breaking them down if I was confused.
15:48 23 Jul 19
The ALEKS test went very well for my son, in large part due to your course. So much of the course was clearer than the actual teaching in school.
13:34 18 Jul 19
The Course Prep was real fine and it helped me ace the placement test, I got a 35/36. If it wouldn't have been for the MathHelp's Prep Course I wouldn't have been able to review the concepts as efficiently and accurately. I, therefore, want to thank you!!

I passed my NES test. This program was user friendly and a great resource. Most helpful were the linear equations, systems of linear equations, factorization, percents and geometry. I thought they were excellent. I would recommend your program to anyone taking the NES test.
14:04 11 Jul 19
It took the GRE for the second time yesterday and my math score improved. I loved the short videos and then the practice questions directly after. And then the section tests. It was all suuuuper helpful!
14:53 07 Jul 19
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.
20:19 01 Jul 19
TSI Gods! I am old or lets just say older. I haven't had to do a math exam in 22 years. I decided to enroll in college to improve my computer skills. The school counselor recommended I take a basic math class because the TSI would be too difficult for me. I decided to prove everyone wrong and look for help. I enrolled in MathHelp and it literally started me with 1+1. Well not literally but almost. By the time I made it to the end I felt like a math wiz! Everything made sense. I walked in to the TSI and took the most easiest math test. I was overly prepared if that is possible. I started tutoring others on math. I absolutely recommend this site. Of course, I only can talk from the TSI area. Good Luck!
19:47 13 Jun 19
We found this site while my son was studying for a placement test. He missed placing into 6th grade pre-algebra by a few points and didn’t want that to happen again. So he used your site to study. It had everything we needed from the whole curriculum. It was very helpful.
12:50 03 Jun 19
The math placement test went really well. I scored 39 out of 40. I am really grateful to the MathHelp Team for putting up such a great course. I loved the lessons as they were short and precise. Overall, it was an amazing course for reviewing the topics which I had forgotten.
14:20 09 May 19
The site was very helpful in brushing up on forgotten math skills and learning some I had never known. Having been out of school for over 20 years this is the one site I came across that was able to help me learn it. Your people went over it well, and the practice test after each lesson was good. I did well on my Accuplacer - I scored a 258 on the math portion which is enough to get me into mathematical reasoning. Thanks for you help. I wouldn’t change a thing.
01:18 08 May 19
I needed only a refresher from 30 plus years ago. I took the T.S.I. college level math entrance test cold at Lone Star College and failed pretty bad. The format with videos, practice questions, quiz's and chapter and a final test brought everything back and after using the program I tested again and passed with flying colors.
21:48 04 May 19
Just passed the TSI. Your program was so helpful and reasonably priced, at that. The instructions were short and sweet, the practice rounds were helpful, and the tests appropriate to the given information. Thank you so much.
13:19 03 May 19
I passed the FTCE Math! The course was extremely helpful, especially the videos and the tests. I am very pleased with this course and have recommended it to several classmates that need to take the exam.
13:52 01 May 19
All of it was fantastic! It was perfectly presented and helped me tremendously on the ALEKS test. It was concise, logical and orderly. So much better than trying to read and teach myself. I graduated HS 30 years ago and needed to take the test to finish my degree.
18:54 30 Apr 19
Your math program was great! I only wish I had found it sooner. I had to prepare to take the NCDAP test and trigger my memory from skills that I learned over 30 years ago. I started out reviewing from a book that I bought. Then I tried another online program. I wasn't completely happy with their program and that's when I came across your website. I really wish I would have started with your program to begin with. I have to admit it was well worth it. I passed all 6 parts of the test! I would definitely recommend your website to others!
12:31 29 Apr 19
It was extremely helpful for the FTCE Elementary Math test! I loved it and it was very user friendly, especially with the videos to give me a step by step lesson on each topic to refresh my memory. Everything was really great about the whole site and lessons.
17:03 23 Apr 19
The TSI Math course was fabulous! I have recommended it to many of my friends! My daughter took the whole TSI math course and passed the TSI on the next administration. The videos are obviously extremely helpful, but I love the practice questions to check for understanding before you take the test. I just wish you offered one for TSI Reading!
16:47 08 Apr 19
I took my FTCE test Friday and passed! This course helped me a LOT. I never had math explained in such a simple manner. I recommended this site to a friend who has failed this test already a couple of times. I felt more prepared for a test than ever before with using this course.
23:10 02 Apr 19
My Score on the Accuplacer QAS was 275 or 285. I can’t remember. The actual test was more difficult than your study material. That doesn’t mean this wasn’t a tremendous help. Your materials covered the majority of the content on the exam. I would have certainly failed if I didn’t use Mathhelp.
01:54 02 Apr 19
The CSET and CBEST test practice were very helpful. I love the video tutoring format. The test practice was helpful especially on the math I had forgotten since high school - I’m now 54! I've told everyone I know about your website because it was a Godsend for me. Thank you for what you do.
16:48 24 Mar 19
I needed to take the Accuplacer placement test as an adult going back to college long after high school and it was a great refresher for me! Overall it worked really well for what I needed, would recommend to anyone - thanks!
16:07 22 Mar 19
I cannot tell you how helpful MathHelp was - not only in preparing me for the TSI test but allowing me to re-learn high school algebra in preparation for college. Because of your course, I gained a base of understanding that has been invaluable. Thank you for creating such a well designed program.

My ACCUPLACER test went well enough to pass, as I had some real cramming to do after being inactive in mathematics for quite some time. The detailed lessons were immensely helpful in their entirety. The videos allowed me to go back and go over and over a really get it right. I have since started college and will likely use the math courses again.Thank you for this service it was a big help.
19:35 18 Feb 19
My MTLE math test went great. I'm pretty sure that if I had not used MathHelp I would not have passed. It was a great review tool for me. I tried just starting at the beginning and working through everything on there, but I ran out of time to study so I changed tactics and did the final exam to see where I needed the most help.
16:25 17 Jan 19
Every part of math help was useful. It is not overwhelming like a lot of the free sites, and it allows you to go back and review if needed. I went through the mathhelp course twice and passed my FTCE test. And I had not done math in 25 years. Thank you for a great resource. It was worth every penny.
00:07 16 Jan 19
I took the FTCE math test for the third time today and passed! The only difference this time was that I used your course to help me study! I loved it. I am not a mathematical person, I never have been, but with the videos, practice questions, and quizzes, I really felt more comfortable going into the exam!
19:12 05 Jan 19
My test went perfectly. I couldn't be happier with the results. I enjoyed the content very much. It was imperative that I pass that test and your service + my hard work ensured my success. I will use your service again in the future (if I ever have future math needs) I am so glad this is available as I don't think I would have been as successful without it.
17:11 05 Jan 19
I began the ACCUPLACER math review being 10 years out of high school, with that being the last time I took any math course. I was literally starting from scratch and didn’t remember anything. I’m beginning my journey back to school and going off of my ACT score I was placed in beginners math! I always struggled in math and by taking this review it helped me test out of the college algebra completely. I now do not have to take any math classes for my degree, which saved me time and money! I highly recommend this program. I love the videos of instruction, the practice questions and the tests. I cannot say enough good things about this review. I learned more from it then I did all through high school!
14:50 10 Dec 18
The West-B test went very well and I passed. I felt that MathHelp highly contributed to that as I was able to get a ton of practice and quality instruction from the teachers on MathHelp. I think the way the program is set up is very helpful and don’t have anything negative to say about it. Thank you for all you guys do!
21:57 29 Nov 18
The ACCUPLACER math test went great!!! I have been out of school for 30 years and had not worked on algebra at all 🙁 I really did not want to start at the bottom with all of the math classes. After working the online course for 1 week I was able to skip 4 classes and just have to take one class lower than my pre-requisite for my medical classes 🙂 The whole program the way you have it set up is perfect for me!! I love that you can watch the demos then practice and then finally test. You have an amazing program that was a huge help to me!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!
16:17 29 Oct 18
I took the Accuplacer test originally a year ago and scored a 34 in Accuplacer elementary algebra, not even making it to the college math test. After studying for less than a month with Mathhelp I score a 60 in Accuplacer college math and was able to test into my college math class bypassing remedial classes and saving me wasted time and money. Although I took trigonometry and calculus in high school, that was in 2001, so these modules were a refresher for me. But they were a huge help and cant say thank you enough.The biggest help for me was the instant feedback on quizzes showing my mistakes in my work. I don't feel there was much to be improved, it helped me tremendously and I enjoyed the course.
