Get Ready to COMPETE in College with
Collegiate Online Math Preparation Exams, Tutorials, & Exercises
Clicking on Algebra exam or Pre-Calculus exam will take you to the
Math Class
web site where you can take the exams and use the tutorials. The other links are
for information on how to interpret your scores, information on the tutorials,
and additional resources to help you compete. To use MATH CLASS for
individual purposes (no record of grades) login as:
competetn@yahoo.com and use password:
competetn If you want to receive an email response to questions you need
to register. If you have a question on how to do a problem it is best
to read and work the corresponding tutorial first. It will be much easier
to read than an email response.

Algebra Exam Score . . . |
Readiness - We
like to see a High School GPA of 3.0 or higher and a score of: (Placement exams and requirements vary among colleges and universities. Your goal should be to score consistently near the upper ends of the ranges listed in the table in order to increase the likelihood of success when taking the placement test.) |
Your score is: 0 to 11 . |
You will need more work in Algebra. Your
first course will be one of the algebras as Intermediate Algebra or
College Algebra. . |
Your score is: 12-19 . |
You are ready for an entry-level math course for
non-technical majors requiring math courses as Finite Math or
Basic Statistics. . |
Your score is: 20-25 . |
You are ready for Basic Calculus (without trigonometry) for non-technical majors. Or you are ready to take the Pre-Calculus Exam to determine if you are ready for Pre-Calculus (a preparation course for more rigid Calculus sequences as Science-Engineering Calculus) or a more rigid Calculus sequence. |
