The Math Placement Exam is meant to be taken mostly by incoming freshmen and those who are looking to pass out of the PACe courses. If you are not a strong math student and are looking to just pass into the PACe courses this is not the exam for you (see the Entry Level Mathematics exam).
If this sounds like the exam you need, then you will want to look to schedule 2-4hrs of tutoring to prepare for the exam. The total amount of time needed will depend on where your skills are and how much of the exam you need help with.
I offer online tutoring as well as in person tutoring. So, if you are taking any of these courses through CSU’s online or distance learning program, I am able to tutor you no matter where you are located. Or if you are taking the courses on campus and just want to be tutored from the comfort of your own home, I can do that.
