Best Approach to Success

Log in. Log in and out of the Math Lab for each visit.

Eliminate distractions. Place your cell phone on silent or vibrate. If you must take a call, please step outside the Lab.

Be prepared. Attend classes, take good notes, and complete or attempt homework assignments.

Don’t wait until the last minute before a test to get help. The Math Lab is open 4 days a week. By appointment for other times.

Bring important materials. Textbooks, class notes, syllabus.

Work out problems before asking for help. If the tutor can see your work, they will be better able to help you find mistakes.

Utilize your resources. The Math Lab offers access to computers, calculators, and resource materials in addition to free tutoring.

Be considerate. Please be polite and respectful of those around you.

Accuplacer Exam

The Accuplacer Exam tests your knowledge in mathematics and is taken by students to determine which math class is the best fit for their skill level. Students may take the Accuplacer exam up to two times with at least one month between​ testing. It is also important to note that calculators are not allowed on this particular exam.   

How do I prepare for the Accuplacer?
To begin, come visit the Math Lab, Library 326, if you are unsure where to start.  You do not need an appointment and you may drop by any time we are open​.

Accuplacer Study Resources:

Below is a study guide that can help you revisit mathematical topics you may have forgotten.  This study guide is a very thorough outline of what you might expect from the Accuplacer Exam.
