In need of a good app/site to improve my math quickly? ?

I'm going for my placement test for college in a couple months. I used to be sufficient with math, but I had a stroke when I was 18, blah blah blah, long story short, I'm finally physically good enough for college (I'm 26,) but I've realized my math is complete garbage now. I basically need a crash course to refresh all the math. I know the basic math, +-*/, but can't recall much else... So yes, a good site or app you know to help educate myself would be much appreciated!

    Here's a free practice test for the Florida Postsecondary Education Readiness Test (PERT):

    and a study guide:

    If this is too advanced, then find a good GED math prep book. Your library (if they're open) will definitely have some, but once you've determined which you like, you might want to buy your own copy, so you can use it as a workbook.

    I'll be surprised if you can't get a  medical certificate from your doctor explaining that as a result of your stroke your ability in maths isn't as acute as it used to be. Show proof of your earlier maths marks from before the stroke, too.

    Get math books you relate too and do self-study. {Start at stores selling used books to keep costs down; then buy new if needed.}

    Kahn Academy is a popular online tutoring site.

    Find out what topics are going to be on the test. Or what courses you expect to take in college. That's what you can start studying. An interactive video lesson such as the Khan Academy can show you some typical problems. Then you will have to find a problem set for further practice and can check your answers in a knowledge base such as Wolfram Alpha.
