    | Would not recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If there is anyway you can get out of this class, do it. Retake the ALEKS test if you have too. This class has you rethinking everything youve already learned

    Course highlights:

    It is an algebra based course. It "prepares" you for calculus.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If there is anyway you can retake the ALEKS and get a better score to test out. Try it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend taking Precalculus if you are unsure about how strong your math skills are in the calculus and geometry arena. I scored high enough to go right into taking Analytic Geometry and Calculus I, but I was nervous and unsure of my self as a Freshman just starting college. While I did well in Precalculus, it prepared me for the next class and I feel more confident. I would also recommend getting in a study group; particularly when studying for finals. My roommate and I had the same class so it was nice to be able to study together. I was lucky in that regard but if you and your roommate don't have similar interest or the same classes, find someone to study with during the semester. It's a great way to meet new people but it's also very helpful to talk to someone about the course that might have the same type of questions and concerns..

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course is that I was well prepared for the next semester and moving to the next level of Geometry and Calculus. While I thought I had the basics and was well prepared, I had several questions. The instructor was very kind to work with, answered questions and made the assignments clear and understandable. I strongly suggest getting in a study group. I learned a great deal in the classroom but while the test were hard it prepared me for next course in which I'm taking my second semester. This will allow me to see if staying on the math track is what I want to ensure I do or a part of my degree plan going forward.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to each class, even if you get pressure to skip. It's not worth it; you learn that going pays off and you don't feel that you miss something important. I didn't skip at the advise of my older cousin and I'm glad I didn't. While it was a challenge again getting a study partner or getting with a study group is very important and I highly recommend finding that resource.
