Math Placement Exam Preparation

THIS IS IMPORTANT!

You should take this seriously: your math eligibility can determine what courses you can initially take, and when you can take certain classes required for your chosen major.
You should study, and refresh your math skills before taking this assessment and before retaking it.
Study Guides and other resources to help you prepare for the the placement exam:
  • Math Refresher "class" in ALEKS six weeks of access to an ALEKS prep program
    • Most recommended preparation route.
    • Costs $25, self-paced
    • CASM tutors will be able to see your progress and help if you come to them with questions but they will not reach out to you or monitor your progress.
    • You will have to complete a knowledge check at the start of this course and as you progress-but these do not count toward math placement. Only proctored ALEKS math placement exams count toward placement. See math-placement/math-placement-access-and-instructions for information on taking the placement exam.
    • This course closely mimics the format of the actual placement exam, so it is good practice. It also goes into more depth than Edready or just the math placement exam review and the material displayed changes based on your progress unlike Khan Academy.
    • To enroll in the course, visit www.ALEKS.com, select new student and enter class code: ALV63-PGUHU
  • Khan Academy - FREE - Web based tutoring and instruction
  • EdReady - FREE - Web based diagnostic and instruction
  • The Math Placement ALEKS exam. Once you take the exam and get your first placement score, study material will open up tailored to the skills you need to master to achieve your desired placement.
