Math Study Guide

Because of the cumulative nature of mathematics, current knowledge of prerequisite skills and concepts greatly increases your opportunity for success in math courses. Our goal is to help you succeed the first time that you enroll in a math course and assessment of what you currently know is a very important part of helping you succeed.

We also understand that while you might have successfully completed a particular math course, some of the necessary skills and concepts might be a bit rusty. An organized review before taking the math placement test will not only help us determine the best placement for you, but it will help you be ready to learn the new concepts when you do enroll in the math course.

Here are some sites to study to help prepare you for the math portion of the placement exam or practice tests to see what you need to review:

Algebra

College Algebra
