  • tutoring and practice. Also try some math game websites- those do not replace actual instruction but they can help put the lessons into practice. http://hotmath.com/games.html http://www.math-play.com/8th-grade-math-games.html http://www.homeschoolmath.net/online/algebra.php#games (sorry can't do clicky right now...

  • Practice, practice, practice. Get a tutor, take the classes at a local community college.

  • Can not afford to go back and forth to the local CC. It's half an hour away one way and with the way gas prices are I can't go that way twice a week every week.

  • Just got 30 lbs of books from my local library and they go all the way back to 8th grade math. Maybe I can refresh myself well enough to not wast 50 bucks on the test.

  • Contact a community college, and take a prep class (be sure it includes spelling)
