Interested in assessing your current level of math?

The following links are to UC San Diego's Mathematics Diagnostic Testing Project that will give you a good idea of your current math skills, and help you determine areas that are useful to review.

Mathematical Analysis Readiness Test will test your knowledge in algebra I, II and geometry.  This determines how ready you are for college-level math, i.e. Math 10, 11, 41, 44 or 46.

Calculus Readiness Test will test your knowledge in college algebra and trigonometry, or precalculus.  This determines whether you are ready for advanced college-level math, i.e. Math 43 or Math 1A.
