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.

I first want to thank you for the MathHelp lessons. They are well done, in a logical order, and I appreciate that they are short, explain the concept with an example (or more), and that there are practice problems in addition to quizzes and tests -- all with the work written out and explained so I could figure out where and why I went wrong in a problem -- and affirm what I did right. It was the best review of math concepts I found while looking for assistance to prep for the ALEKS math placement test at the local community college in which I enrolled. I am 25 years out of grad school (in a social science field), and as I am jumping back into school to pursue nursing -- a heavier math and science field -- I needed to review the concepts that I was able to test out of a few decades ago.I also liked that I could watch the video at double time speed if it was something I just wanted to quickly review :) The examples with word/story problems also helped immensely! I was faced with a couple of them when I took the ALEKS test, and since I had practiced them (their format), they came a lot easier to me. And finally, the fact that there are links to related topics within each lesson made a difference. I checked out a few of the links to related lessons along the way just to make sure I was understanding things as fully as I felt I was, and those lessons reinforced what I knew and gave me confidence to progress to the next section.As for ALEKS, I scored more than what I needed to place into the math class required to complete my prerequisite for the nursing program. I would highly recommend MathHelp!

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 math 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.

My test went amazingly! I felt very prepared in taking the ALEKS placement test. I liked the practice problems and tests and I felt I had a good understanding of the concepts presented to me.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
