What kind of math is on the GED test?
The GED math test covers the following concepts, each representing about a quarter of the questions on the test.
- Number Operations and Number Sense
- Measurement and Geometry
- Data Analysis and Statistics
Very smooth remedial lessons and it helped refresh my memory on things I had forgotten about. Overall it was very worth it and I'm ready to take my math placement test this coming month.

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! MathHelp helped me so much, I like how the teachers/professionals explain things step by step, I took my ASVAB and scored a 91, I have never been so confident with my math knowledge in my life, mind you the first time I took the test I scored a whopping 15.

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.

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 ASVAB test went well and I scored right into the job I wanted. Thank you for lessons. Mathhelp.com has been a huge help.
16:31 25 Apr 21
This program was so helpful. I haven't taken a math course in 20 years and needed to refresh before taking the Accuplacer and going back to school. The test went great, I got a 292/300. It was so great to have access to mathhelp to refresh my long dormant math skills. I found the lessons clear and easy to understand. I loved the feature of being able to skip lessons I already knew. The little diagnostic quizzes were great to let me know which lessons I needed to take and which I could skip. Thank you for your work, I found the website to be such a helpful tool! I would recommend to anyone!
14:32 10 Apr 21
My CASA test was a breeze, thanks to the practice from the MathHelp course. I believe the most helpful sections of the course for me were the explanations for the more involved word problems. I also needed refreshing for graphing inequalities and volume equations. I benefitted most from the clear explanations and thorough solutions presented in the course. Class video length is spot on and the five question limit for each test is enough to challenge, but not intimidating or discouraging. Thanks for your great test prep.
18:22 10 Mar 21
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.
16:28 09 Mar 21
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.
14:54 22 Feb 21
The course helped me SO much!! I went from not knowing ANYTHING to making a perfect score on my GACE math program admission test! I literally felt doomed before I took this course. I think each of the teachers did a great job breaking everything down and simplifying it. I honestly don’t see how it could be any better. I really feel like I FINALLY understand math now after years and years of hating math and not understanding any of it. Thanks so much for creating this course and helping me get one step closer to fulfilling my teaching dreams!
14:38 26 Jan 21
I absolutely loved my experience with MathHelp. I am going back to school to get my Masters in Architecture and haven’t taken a math class in 20 years, so I needed to bone up for my Structural class. I appreciated the cumulative curriculum and the online quizzes/ tests with immediate feedback showing work when I got a problem wrong. Also, the ability to download the test scores printout / excel is key. Thanks again for a great service!
12:50 21 Jan 21
I took my PERT test this afternoon and got a 139! Was able to skip a bunch of pre req classes, so thank you. :) I hadn’t taken a math class since high school 7 years ago so the review definitely helped. The videos were very easy to follow and the practice questions and mini reviews at the end of each section helped a lot. If I ever need more help I’ll definitely be using Math Help again!
19:03 09 Dec 20
I’d like you to know that I absolutely love the Intermediate Algebra program, and will likely be signing back up in January for the College Algebra course. I’m 36 years old and have always struggled with math, barely graduating high school because of it and so I began with your program for the PERT test, which allowed me to get a high enough score to pass taking a remedial course.Continuing with the Intermediate Algebra program during the semester is absolutely the reason why I was able to sustain a B grade, and I actually have my final this afternoon and I am confident I will do well.I think the reason that your program works so well is because you keep it short and to the point. All the steps are shown, you don’t use a bunch of extra words and jargon, and you keep the problems simple so the student gets a chance to perfect those before going on to more difficult ones within their actual class assignments. There were several places where the things you taught weren’t explained in class notes by my school that made a world of difference (such as clearing the radical in the denominator, or using a factor tree to factor rather just trying to guess multiples). It also helped that your course guide exactly followed the flow of the class going from chapter to chapter so I could watch my class lecture (online course), attempt some of those problems...I’d struggle, then I’d go to Mathhelp, do well, and go back to the class coursework. It was an easy lateral movement. My not getting an A in the class is simply because I make silly mistakes like forgetting signs or the simplest math errors, but I feel confident in the course and that’s simply 100% from your program.Thank you for all the help your program has offered, it’s been quite an amazing transformation for me.
16:21 09 Dec 20
It had been years since I had done basic math like that. It was nice just to have a refresher on all of the CBEST concepts. Most of the practice tests I took were very spot on. I would say you guys covered most of the basics someone needs to know! They do a scaled score from 20-80 on the test and a 41 is passing. I actually got a 70 on the math section so I did pretty well! Thank you again!

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. This course saved my life as I was trying to study the math content for the GRE exam. The last time I studied math was over 7 years ago, so my math skills were almost non-existent until I found MathHelp.com. The course for the GRE was incredible - it covered all the material for the exam. The instructors are experts and very skilled at teaching the math concepts in a very clear and detailed yet broken down manner. I also like the practice questions which prepare you for the test of each lesson. The bonus material added to some lessons is also extremely valuable especially for the nature of the GRE questions. I didn't notice any shortcomings from the program honestly. Looking forward to acing the math section of the GRE. Thank you for the creators of the website and the instructors' hard work in delivering this top notch content. I give this course a 5/5 rating.

I passed my tests! I was using this service to refresh my math skills and it worked. I appreciate the service! You all do a great job. As an adult, I realize that we don’t always maintain knowledge if we don’t use it. Your format reintroduced me to proper methods, gave me time to practice, and then tested me. It was worth every penny for the positive learning experience. 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! 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!
23:02 21 Aug 20
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!
14:12 19 Aug 20
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!
13:38 07 Aug 20
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. This program was very helpful and beneficial. I ended up passing the TSI. I think the biggest help was the “work” part of the problems and tests where I could see where I went wrong. Thank you.
16:07 24 Jul 20
I graduated high school in 2004. When I took the PERT “practice tests” I was shocked to see how far my math skills had slipped through the years so I needed a refresher. The course went above and beyond and I will recommend it over and over. I scored 150/150!! I’d give the course I took a 10/10 and my advice to anyone preparing to take the PERT Math portion would be to not waste their money on any other study guides. This course was perfect and taught more in depth concepts than what I saw on the test. I was prepared to the point that the test itself wasn’t difficult at all.
12:25 13 Jul 20
The program was immensely helpful! I passed the General Curriculum Math MTEL 03 on the first try, which from what I understand almost never happens! Thank you to you and your team for the awesome support and structured format to reacquainting me with mathematical concepts that had been long forgotten. It’s never been easy for me to recall formulas during high-pressure testing situations but you presented the material in a way that took it to its most essential parts and gave examples that made sense. Particularly, I found the video-based lessons and the multiple examples of each to be most helpful. I also enjoyed the instantaneous results from the lessons and quizzes to test my knowledge along the way. Thank you so much!
17:05 07 Jul 20
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!
15:58 12 Jun 20
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.
16:15 07 Jun 20
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.
18:29 05 Jun 20
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.
14:16 01 Jun 20
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!
14:19 12 May 20
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!
13:51 11 Mar 20
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.
00:10 02 Mar 20
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! 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. 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.

How do I study for GED math?
Don’t settle for a typical study guide. Make sure your GED Math prep includes comprehensive instruction, guided practice, and interactive tests.
How can I learn my GED fast?
A great way to learn math for the GED fast is to use diagnostic tests. In other words, before you learn the concept in each lesson, check to see if you already know it. If you do well on the diagnostic test, you can skip the lesson. Using this approach, you won’t waste any time on GED tutoring you don’t need.
How can I pass my math GED?
If you’re struggling with the math section of the GED and you’re wondering how to pass, look for a program that has background lessons to build your foundation. The best GED math prep will allow you to go back and work on the basics at the same time that you progress through the course.
What should I study for the GED test?
When determining what to study for the GED test, it’s important to understand that there are four sections on the test: mathematics, science, social studies, and language. Students tend to have the most trouble with the mathematics section, so you may want a GED prep course that focuses exclusively on math.
How do you prepare for the GED?
The following steps outline the best way to prepare for the GED.
- Focus your preparation on the material that’s covered on the test. The best GED Math test prep must be incredibly efficient.
- Be sure to get plenty of instruction. Test prep books with practice questions are usually lacking in this area.
- Choose a study guide carefully. Hiring a tutor is expensive, so most students will need to research other options. Fortunately, online programs can be very effective and much more affordable.
- Take your time when answering the questions on the GED math test.
- Beware of tricks. The answer that seems obvious isn’t necessarily the correct one.
- Be confident in your answers. Second-guessing usually leads to incorrect answers.
- Move on if you get stuck on a problem. You can return to it later if you have time.
- If a problem doesn’t look familiar, don’t panic. Trust your math skills.
How long does it take to prepare for the GED?
Preparing for the GED takes anywhere from 3 to 6 months, depending on your background in the various subject areas.
