My daughter used Mathhelp.com to prepare for the Accuplacer math placement test at her university. The school required a score of 279 on the Quantitative Reasoning test to move on to the Accuplacer AAF. The first time, she took it cold and scored a 270, so she was not able to move on to the AAF test. Then she studied on your site and got a 299 on the QR and a 292 on the AAF test, so she is good to go!Your website is very well planned to maximize results while minimizing time investment. The method that worked best for my daughter was to take the practice quiz for each section and then read explanations or watch videos of the problems she missed. That way she wasn't spending time watching videos on topics she already knew/remembered well. I then had her take the full practice tests once she had gone through all of the videos she needed to. Sometimes she didn't even need to view the videos -- your explanations of answers were sufficient in most cases to tell her what she needed to know, but the videos were very helpful when she needed a bit more explanation/step-by-step instruction. Up until this year, she has always done well in math, but a crummy teacher combined with covid virtual school made this year a very tough year for her, and she has lost a lot of confidence as a result. I hope that seeing how well she can do with a bit of good teaching/support has shown her that she can be successful again in this college calculus course.Overall, I was very impressed with how well your website prepared her for the tests, as evidenced by her scores. I will also use your site as she prepares to take the PSAT next year.

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 graduated high school in 1992, that was the last time I did any math related to algebra. I never went into college. 20 plus years later I decided to enroll. I needed to take the PERT placement test for Math. I had a bit of panic because I didn't remember anything; so I would have to learn as much as I could within a month because of deadlines with the school. I stumbled upon MathHelp.com while google searching Pert Test help. They offer 3 free lessons and it is a nice introduction into how the website works. I signed up for a month.Topics are broken down into a specific area; ie: Quadratic Equations. These are further broken down into bite size lessons that go through a specific part of the main lesson. Each lesson is explained in a logical and practical way that is easy to understand. After each mini lesson you can either practice or take a test on what you learned. When you finish a topic you get a review test on mixed questions based on all the lessons in that topic.I studied with them 2 hours a day minus weekends. Though I didn't get through all the areas because of time restraints; I did manage to go through the majority of it.The day of the test arrived and a few questions that I did not recognize were on the exam. However, even though I had not studied those specific problems, I knew the process on how to work through them. In the end for an old dude who hadn't studied in a long time I scored a 124 out of 150, enough to be able to select college Algebra. If I had been afforded the time to hit every section and really get mastery of it, I probably could have scored higher.I highly recommend signing up for this site if you are struggling with higher level math and or need a refresher on it. The teachers are amazing and each lesson is presented clearly and simply. The fact that you can practice them over and over really reinforces their lessons.Another good thing is unsubscribing. Most sites are sneaky and in order to cancel you have to find a number from some other site. While MathHelp.com is auto renew you can basically just click a button that says unsubscribe.If I end up having trouble in math this semester I will definitely be subscribing again. I can't thank them enough and highly recommend them. Worth every penny.

It helped me quite a bit as I got 91 score at UMass placement test which enabled me to enroll directly into Calculus.

I am not one to leave reviews ever. But I felt the need to leave a review for Mathhelp.com so other people can know how good this website is! I was skeptical at first having to pay for a PERT study course but I am so glad I did. I hadn't done any math since high school which was 7 years ago for me and I didn't remember anything at all. But I followed this course for 2 weeks and in that time I learned more than I had at years of school. I scored a perfect 150 on my PERT and because of it I got to take the Accuplacer and scored well on that too which placed me in Pre Calc and Trig! It saved me from taking over a year worth of lower level maths and thousands of dollars. For $50 it was definitely worth it and I would recommend it to anyone who needs to take any math placement test or just wants a refresher in math. I only wish all my math courses used mathhelp.com it is by far much superior to Pearsons mymathlab which pails in comparison. The structure of this course was by far the most efficient way I have ever been taught math. I just want to say thank you!

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!

Mathhelp.com was extremely helpful. I increased my math placement test score by 135 points by using the website. I am now ready to take college algebra. The teachings are a good pace and the most helpful thing are the links to previous lessons that remind you of building blocks you need for the current lesson. Also, the option to have the audio of a problem on the practice problems is extremely helpful.

My daughter really liked using mathhelp.com! She needed it for some refresher learning in preparation for her Accuplacer college placement test. Imagine her surprise when she scored so much higher on her math than she thought she was going to! Thank you for your helpful product!

Wanted to say thanks so much for putting together the Mathhelp curriculum for people like me. Without all the content I would not have been successful on the TSI placement test. The most helpful was definitely the factoring, exponent rules and fractions involving radicals since you see a lot of that on the test. Overall it was very easy to learn and follow and built my confidence up and helped me be successful. I scored a 350 out of a possible 390 according to my advisor and now I’m in my second week of college algebra on a summer mini semester! Thanks to all of you and keep up the good work. I made a suggestion to my school that they should recommend your site to people like me as a prep for the placement test.

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 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 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.

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.

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.

What math placement test does Saint Joseph's University use?

Saint Joseph's University uses its own math placement test. To review for the test, you’ll want a study guide that includes comprehensive instruction, guided practice, and interactive tests. For most students, test prep books and practice questions are not enough, and classes and tutors are too expensive. Fortunately, online courses now offer a balance of affordability and effectiveness.

Do I need to take the math placement test at Saint Joseph's University?

Most students at Saint Joseph's University will need to take the math placement test. However, if you think you might have a high enough score on the SAT or ACT to be exempt from taking the placement test, check online or contact your testing center.

What type of math is on the Saint Joseph's University math placement test?

The math on the Saint Joseph's University placement test covers Pre-Algebra, Algebra, and Geometry. Make sure your preparation only includes the topics on the test - nothing more and nothing less. The best test prep courses emphasize efficiency.

Is the math on the Saint Joseph's University placement test hard?

The math placement test at Saint Joseph's University isn’t hard if you receive the necessary individualized instruction when preparing for the test. With a study guide that has a math tutor built into the program, you’ll get all the help you need.

What is Saint Joseph's University known for?

With a total of 7,362 students enrolled, Saint Joseph’s University offers 55 undergraduate majors, 20 degree completion and certificate programs, and 55 graduate programs.  Its accreditation is through the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.  Individual schools within the university include the School of Health Studies and Education, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the Erivan K. Haub School of Business.  Following its acquisition of the Barnes Arboretum, the university established a three-year horticultural certificate program.  Workshops for amateur gardeners are also offered at the arboretum, and it is open to the community on the weekends.  Additionally, the university’s science building is home to another greenhouse and a turtle pond for faculty research.  Located in Philadelphia, around Lower Merion, the Jesuit Catholic university was founded by the Society of Jesus in 1851. 

GPA and high school coursework are an integral part of admissions decisions.  Although required for homeschool applicants, scores on either the SAT or the ACT are optional for most applicants.  Scores from these standardized tests may also be used by international students to demonstrate English proficiency.  Other acceptable tests for this purpose include the TOEFL and the IELTS.  Admitted students who wish to take a class through the Modern and Classical Languages Department may need to take a placement exam.  The college may grant credit for AP and IB tests, dual enrollment, or the Diocesan Scholars program.  The university is a yellow ribbon school and accepts GI education benefits through its Office of Veterans Services

The university offers several options through its Department of Health Services.  Interested students can pursue a Bachelor’s of Science (BS) in Autism Behavioral Studies, with a specialization in either a clinical track or a research and advocacy track, and while working on their degree, they can take advantage of the university’s connection with the community through its Kinney Center of Autism Education and Support.  Another option is the department’s bachelor’s program with a major in Interdisciplinary Health Services.  Focusing on a carative, rather than a curative, method for working with health and chronic illness, this program enables students to incorporate a breadth of concerns, from the social sciences and public health to management and ethics, into their preparatory studies for a career or graduate work in health related fields.  The department also offers Master of Science (MS) degree programs in Health Administration and Health Education.  Offerings from the Department of Education include both undergraduate and graduate level programs.  Bachelor’s degree programs are tailored to such majors as Art Education, Secondary Education, and Early Childhood Education.  Completing the latter program with a GPA of at least 3.0 and a passing score on the necessary Praxis exams should enable a graduate to seek certification through the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Department of Education.  Other undergraduate and graduate level programs at the university may also help students to work towards educator certification.  In order to obtain an initial certificate, students may need the Basic Skills Tests, the Fundamental Subjects or Content Knowledge assessments, and the subject assessment tests required for the areas in which certification is desired.  An Educational Specialist certificate may require students to sit for the PPST in reading, writing and math.  Tests to consider are the Core Academic Skills tests, the Pennsylvania Pre-service Academic Performance Assessment (PAPA), and the Pennsylvania Educator Certification Tests (PECTs).
