ALEKS Placement, Preparation, and Learning is an online math learning system that uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately provide you with a comprehensive overview of your strengths and weaknesses before you take the proctored exam. 

If you do not have a math placement, or if you want to challenge your placement, you should take the ALEKS Math PPL assessment.
