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.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

How do I prepare for the PERT test?

1. Go slowly but surely

Start each concept with whiteboard videos. Then move to guided practice with complete audio explanations. Finally, test your knowledge – but only when you have it completely down. This “I do, we do, you do” approach is essential for anyone wondering how to pass the PERT placement test with a weak background in math.

2. Concentrate your efforts

The best PERT math test prep must be incredibly efficient as well. You want to be ready for the test, but you also want to get it over with as soon as possible! So, first and foremost, use instruction that’s direct and to the point. Don’t waste time with long-winded explanations. Secondly, your PERT test prep should only include the topics that are covered on the test - nothing more and nothing less. And last but not least, start every lesson with a diagnostic pre-test to see if you already know the concept. If you do, then skip the lesson. This allows you to move through the topics as quickly as possible.

3. Build your core

While it’s great if you’re able to breeze through a PERT test prep course, many students need to take their time, and even go back to the basics if necessary. For these students, it’s vital to have convenient access to background lessons to build a strong foundation. This feature is particularly helpful for adults who are returning to school after a long absence and who may have forgotten the Algebra and Geometry they learned many years ago. Older students like these often have no idea how to pass the PERT math test, and the review provided by the background lessons is a true lifeline.

How is MathHelp different from other programs?

Our PERT math help is much more engaging than the old-fashioned standardized test prep you probably had to endure in the past. Not only do we use interactive multimedia to grab your attention and provide ongoing support, but we also have a dynamic grade report that tracks your progress and keeps you on task.

Also, we provide a complete PERT math practice test, which you can take as many times as necessary because the questions will be different each time. This depth of content is also a clear separator from other online resources. In summary, think of our course as a PERT study guide that has everything you could possibly need to ace the test, including the teacher!
What is the PERT exam?

The PERT, or Postsecondary Education Readiness Test, is a computer adaptive test used by the state of Florida to determine how prepared a student is for college level courses. All Florida high schools use the test, and many of the state’s colleges and universities do as well.

How hard is the PERT test?

The PERT test can be hard, so it’s important to prepare. Although it’s not a pass/fail test, students who do well can skip remedial courses and save money and time, so the stakes are high. Scores range from 50 to 150, and math is generally considered to be the hardest section of the test. It takes a score of 114 to place out of remedial math, while it requires a 103 in writing and a 106 in reading to place out of remedial courses in those areas.

Is the PERT easier than the SAT?

The PERT is easier than the SAT, at least on the math side. In fact, there have been complaints by Florida educators the that test doesn’t cover the state’s standards rigorously enough. However, that doesn’t mean that the PERT math is easy, and it’s critical to prepare for this section of the test just as thoroughly as you would prepare for the SAT math.

What score do you need to pass the PERT test?

If you’re trying to figure out how to pass the PERT test, it’s important to understand that the test is not pass/fail. However, you do receive a score, which ranges from 50 to 150, and that score determines if you place into college level courses. For example, a score of 114 or more will qualify you for college level math, and a combination of 106 or more in Reading and 103 or more in Writing will place you into freshman English.

What happens if I fail the PERT test?

You can’t fail the PERT, but there are serious repercussions to doing poorly on the test. A low score will put you into remedial courses, which is not a place you want to be. These courses don’t even give you credit toward your degree, so you can end up wasting lots of time and money at the very start of your college career. Therefore, while you can’t “fail” the PERT, you should be very concerned about what happens if you get a low score.

Is the PERT math test hard?

The PERT math test is hard simply because many students struggle with math. While the math on the PERT is not as hard as it is on the ACT or SAT, for example, it’s challenging enough to send most students down to remedial classes unless they take the time to prepare. Scores range from 50 to 150, and a 114 or more is required to place out of remedial math.

What type of math is on the PERT test?

The math on the PERT test is primarily Algebra and Geometry. The following topics are emphasized: Evaluating Expressions, Solving Equations and Inequalities, Coordinate Planes, Systems of Equations, Polynomials, Factoring, and Quadratics.

How many questions are on the math PERT?

The math section of the PERT has 30 questions, which is the same number of questions as the Reading and Writing sections of the test. The PERT test math section isn’t timed, but it shouldn’t take more than about 30 minutes to complete. You won’t be allowed to bring a calculator to the test, but you will have access to a calculator app for some of the math questions.
