i heard of "be good at"
that's only what i get
"At" is correct, but "in" is also a proper choice. :wink:Quote:

So I guess it is good at, but sometimes in appears.. like exceptions.. or like AmE..
I'd use 'at' here, but many American speakers would use 'in', which would be uncommon in the UK.
I've actually rarely heard anyone use "good in math" unless they mean the class (as opposed to the subject), whether they say the "class" part or not.
He's good in math [class].
At the same time, though, saying "He's good at math class" as opposed to math as a subject sounds a little funny to me.
Is there any special rule for such questions,"to use a correct preposition".
