I’m a huge fan!Both the Accuplacer and ALEKS courses were spot.I set a goal to see if I could cram learn and test into precalculus/ trigonometry inside of just two weeks - and I did it!I sincerely could barely do the foil method and I didn’t even know how to do long division and because of the course, and particularly Matt’s clarity in the lessons, I now play with functions for fun. :)Super grateful.

Aleks test went well. The videos combined with the practice and test format with extra help videos on the side were great. The course is laid out perfectly.

I found the course great! I have been out of school for a while so it was a great refresher before re attending uni. The skills I gained from this course definitely improved what my ALEKS score would have been. I found the tests at the end of each section the most helpful. But I also loved the short video format.

Mathhelp was very helpful. I never went past Algebra 1 in High School, and then 7 years later I needed to place into precalculus to pursue my first college degree. I studied through all of the ALEKS Mathhelp lessons, and then I got a 64 on the test, placing into the math class I needed to be in.Thank you so much for all the help.

This is a great program that is very straightforward and helpful. I struggle with math and need a higher placement score on the ALEKS test to finish my Bachelor's degree. I studied with the MathHelp step by step plan for a month and did well enough that I placed into my class! Thanks MathHelp!

The ALEKS prep was very helpful. I was able to test into a much higher math class than I'd expected. I loved the pace of the videos and that there were practice test throughout and at the end of each section. It helped me to figure out where I needed more studying. The whole course is really well organized at thought out. I most definitely recommend!

The ALEKS test actually went really well! I got a 76, which placed me into the best section I could have. I think that the website itself was very organized in finding all the elements, and I also think that the condensed/ shorter videos combined with the examples were most helpful.

I'm a returning college student who hasn't taken a math class in nearly 5 years. I felt like I needed somewhere I could build on my fundamentals, so I turned to MathHelp. I started with the first ALEKS lesson on MathHelp, watching all the videos, and taking every test until I could pass with a 100% all the way up to the end of exponential and logarithmic equations, which was lesson 179. Overall, I'm very satisfied with my time using MathHelp. Topics I remember as being complicated, like logarithms, were actually very easy to understand thanks to the short video format of the lessons. Recently I took the ALEKS placement assessment and scored well enough to place into pre calculus. I’m impressed I was able to do that well, going from barely remembering the fundamentals of algebra to nearly placing into calculus.

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.

went from a scoring a 12 to a 68 on the ALEKS test placing me in Pre Calculus at my college. The course was very effective. The reviews at the end of each subject were great

This website was a great help to me as I needed immediate preparation for the ALEKS. From the registration, to the content, to the explanations given on problems, all of it was a stellar experience. The ones who put this together knew their material and worked successfully to come up with a great product (not the result of multiplication type product, see now I'm even making math jokes haha) that I used daily. I hope others find it as helpful as I did and God bless the ones who put this program together.

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, some concepts that I didn't understand in high school, somehow made plenty of sense this time around. I found that your lessons specifically, were the ones I was able to most understand. 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!

I took the ALEKS test prep and it went really well because of the help from this program. I got into the class I needed to place into. I think the most helpful thing that was provided was while taking the tests at the end of every question I could see how the math was supposed to look if I got it wrong. It was really helpful for me to go back through that math that I blocked out in high school.

What is Kirkwood Community College known for?

Kirkwood Community College is a public college in Iowa.  The main campus is in Cedar Rapids.  There is also a campus in Iowa City.  The college also operates seven smaller centers located throughout the area.  The centers offer all services that are available on the bigger campuses.  Over one hundred twenty different programs are offered culminating in associate degrees, diplomas, and certifications.  The College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and the state Department of Education. 

All students entering degree programs must demonstrate college readiness in reading, writing, and mathematics before they can register for classes.  The Accuplacer Next Generation Exams for Reading and Writing and the ALEKS exam for Math are administered in the testing center.  Students may choose to submit documentation which exempts them from the placement testing process.  This includes ACT scores, transcripts showing a grade of C or better in math or writing courses, or a completed degree from an accredited college.  For students whose native language is not English, the English Language Acquisition (ELA) tests are given.  Students may choose to submit TOEFL or IELTS scores in place of this exam.  The testing center also offers CLEP exams for students to earn credit by examination. 

The Associate of Arts and the Associate of Science degrees are usually transfer degrees.  The college has transfer agreements with many four-institutions including all three state universities.  One popular transfer program is for students seeking to become educators.  The liberal arts program is recommended for this program in order to complete core requirements.  Students may choose elective options in education and specialty areas.  After completing an Associate of Arts degree, transfer to a university is required to complete a bachelor’s degree and certification requirements such as passing the Praxis II subject area examinations.  The Nursing Program is approved by the state Board of Nursing.  The program is a four-semester course in addition to prerequisites.  Completion of the first two semesters leads to a diploma in practical nursing and allows students to attempt the National Council Licensure Exam for Practical Nursing (NCLEX-PN).  Students may stop there or continue to complete the second year of the program to obtain and Associate of Applied Science degree.  Completion of the associate degree enables students to take the NCLEX-RN, the licensing test for Registered Nursing.  Transfer to a university or four-year college is easily accomplished at this point.  Students may then earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and beyond.  Transfer schools include Allen College, Mount Mercy University, St. Ambrose University, Iowa Wesleyan University, University of Dubuque, William Penn University, and several state universities.
