Math Boot Camp is designed to help math testers who are struggling to remember basic math concepts.

Some students feel daunted by basic math concepts. Most often this is due to lack of use and practice.

Math Boot Camp does a great job helping students get reacquainted with basic math concepts, while helping navigate the MyMathLab testing software.

MyMathLab plays an important role in students' math experience at LCC. It is used to test students as well as in the classroom once a student enrolls in a math class.

Math Boot Camp is designed for students who need to refresh their basic math skills – not students who are trying to test into higher math levels.

Advanced level math testers who wish to review more advanced math concepts can enroll in YouPrep, a free online math placement preparation course created by LCC faculty. It helps with the review of whole numbers, integers, decimals, fractions, linear equations and graphs, systems of equations, factoring, quadratics, radicals, and rationals.

Taking your math placement test before Math Boot Camp is preferred, but not required.

It is always a good idea for yourself, and for the instructor at the Math Boot Camp, to know what your math level is before setting placement goals. Since the Boot Camp is goal-oriented, it is a good idea to set achievable goals based on your first test attempt.

Math Boot Camp attendees will also receive an additional math placement re-test. This gives you a total of 3 tries to place into the math course you want.
