# The Math Placement Process

**Math Placement** is a process through which you can identify the mathematics courses that are most appropriate for your current knowledge and preparation.

The process involves these steps:

1 Decide whether you need to take a Math Placement Exam.

2 Use the provided refresher and practice materials to review.

3 Take a Math Placement Exam to assess your readiness for College Algebra, Trigonometry, or Calculus courses

4 Review your results, and if you have remaining attempts, decide whether you want to try the exam again.
