ALEKS Math Placement Test Prep: Place Into the Math Class You Want!

Do you want to place into the highest possible math level at your college?

As a motivated and excited student, I know you answered yes to this question!  By placing into the highest possible math class at your college you will save yourself precious time and money! So it’s a worthy goal to study hard and do the best you can on the ALEKS Math Placement Assessment!

However, the only way to do great on the ALEKS Math Placement is to truly know and understand all the key concepts and skills taught in high school level math, courses like Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2 and Pre-Calculus.

Ask yourself, “do I really remember everything from all my math classes in high school?” If not, don’t worry as there is a great way to relearn and sharpen all your high school math skills!

But, before we go over the Best Way To Prepare for the ALEKS Math Placement test – how much do you know about the actual ALEKS Math Placement Assessment?

What Is the ALEKS Math Placement Assessment and Why Is It So Important?

The ALEKS Math Placement Test is a computer-based assessment used to determine a student’s mathematical knowledge. It covers a range of topics from basic arithmetic to pre-calculus and is used by many colleges and universities as a way to place students in the appropriate math course.

The test is adaptive, which means that the questions you’re asked will be based on your previous answers. It’s important to do your best on each question since your score will determine which math course you are placed into.

The assessment must be completed in 1 sitting and can take 1-2 hours complete.  The good news is that there are some things you can do to prepare for the test and increase your chances of getting a high score.

What’s the Best and Most Efficient Way to Learn Math Before Taking the ALEKS?

The answer is simple: the best way to learn math is to learn directly from an experienced math teacher that can explain math in a way you like and understand! No one can teach you math better than an actual math teacher as teaching math every day is their profession!  Of course, it’s almost impossible to find a good math teacher that will sit down and re-teach you everything you learned (or did not learn) in high school math one-on-one…..but fortunately, there is a something that’s just as good!

What our members say

“My daughter successfully passed the placement test at our community college into College Algebra! I give you the credit! Thank you!”

Not even one week into the program and I love it. Even though I’ve always struggled with math you make it seem really easy in the videos. I just wish I had discovered this program even 1 month before I started taking college algebra…”
-Jazmin J.

“I just wanted to say thank you sooooo much! I just received results back saying I passed the math portion on my TASC test. It’s really all thanks to you...”

“I just wanted to say Thank You for this online class. I love it, the way and pace that you verbally explain, along with the follow up example exercises I’m actually absorbing the information.”
