About the Exam
The HiSET is a high school equivalency exam available in several states to test an examinee's knowledge of secondary-level education topics and college readiness. The HiSET Mathematics subtest can be taken with the other five tests or on its own. It is administered on paper and by computer, depending on the location and your preference if the option is provided. The math test has 50 multiple-choice questions which you will be given 90 minutes to answer. You will not be allowed to take any materials into the test center beyond the identification and appointment confirmation that you are required to present.
Preparing & Registering for the HiSET Mathematics Test
This course is designed to be a comprehensive preparation suite to get you test-ready in a low-stress, fun environment. The videos are short and to the point, and they are set to entertaining graphics to hold your attention and increase retention of key topics. As you take the exams and quizzes, you will practice your test-taking techniques, get experience with the types of questions you'll see on the real test, and see how you're doing in each area to determine whether you need more review time.
