Can't pass pre-algebra in college

VISITOR: I am a 50 year old woman who has struggled in math all through grade and high school. I am now in college and wanted to get into the RN program. I do well in my other classes but am failing pre-algebra. I go to the math lab for tutoring every free period I have. Then when I take a test I can't remember anything. I need help. Thank You.

  2. I'm a member of MENSA, I graduated 5th in my high school class, I've graduated from college 4 times with high honors as well as awards for excellence, I hold a high level position in clinical research for a major pharmaceutical company, I can speed read with almost 100% comprehension, I have co-authored a textbook on critical thinking, I can run statistics in my head, BUT...I cannot, in any way, shape, or form understand, nor can I comprehend BASIC ALGEBRA. Throughout my life algebra has always been like a language from another planet to me. I've had private classes and tutoring to no avail. I aced the MATs to get into my Masters Program but now I'm faced with a HUGE problem. If I can pass the GRE I will be accepted into a very prestigious PhD program. But there is no way on earth that I even understand the practice math questions on the GRE Prep Test.I don't have any idea what they're talking about. Does anyone have any suggestions? And please be serious because this is just as serious to me as Dyslexia is to someone else. Thank you.

  3. Oh how happy I am that I have found you. My daughter has failed the college algebra class three times. Now she can't go on because her pell grant forbids it. she is going to get a reg. school loan but is terrified that she may fail it again. In her younger school years she was always placed in excellerated glasses in every other subject, but struggled in math. She wants to be a psychologist, but seems to be stuck now. She works and where as she could afford to pay for some of her tuition, she can't pay for it all. In order for her to get assistance she has to pass the Algebra class. Do you have any suggestions because I know for a fact that she has Dyscalculia Thank You Kaye L. Cary P.S. My daughter is 32 she went back to school after working for years she decided that she wanted more. If she graduates she will be the first in our family to receive a college education.

  5.  GRE exam is a requirement for admission in such programs i.e. Masters, PhD etc. But no where in the world..., they use it to grade your PhD or your working during PhD.
