In an era of rapid development is necessarily required the use of high-tech concrete as basic material for structural constructions. At the same time, most of the studies have been conducted on solid waste as a replacement material in concrete. Therefore, the use of steel slag for aggregate replacement in concrete will be done. The 2-4 tons of wastes are produced during the manufacture of every single tonne of steel [1]. The goal and purpose of this review to know the compressive strength of concrete and the workability of concrete in the cube to replace coarse aggregate with steel slag in the concrete mix. Time to test the strength of concrete is 7 days and 28 days with the percentage of steel slag is 0%, 40%, 60%, 80% and 100% for the ratio 1:1:2. There are two tests that have been carried out in this review such as slump test and compressive strength tests. Results of this study proved that the concrete mix by using steel slag on a high percentage is sub-standard British Standards (BS) in terms of compressive strength, and workability. In conclusion, it appears that this review meets the objectives of the testing the suitability and workability properties of aggregate mixture with steel slag in the concrete mix, testing the compressive strength of aggregate mixture with steel slag in the concrete mix and determine the optimal
