    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course based on the teacher as well, Hercula made this course more enjoyable and stress free.

    we had solved equations and inequalities, analysis of functions (absolute value, radical, polynolmial, rational, exponential, and logarithmic) real and complex zeros

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    For those who excel in math I am assured that you would do well, those who have had a little difficulty grasping the concepts of math I spent most of my days right after my math class to go to the Math Lab and continued to learn and practice more and more.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Precalc is one of the required math classes in most field of studies. To acquire an associates of arts or science, one needs to pass this class. It is also a prerequisite to higher level math classes.

    Course highlights:

    Personally I enjoy math, so it came to me easy. I learned a lot about the TI-83 calculator in that class. The highlights of the course definitely had to have been the people. Precalc is the type of class to bring people together. Teaming up with others to figure out problems made the course much more exciting. After all there's nothing more enjoyable than learning how to do problems that some people despise.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If there was any advice I could give students on this course, it's to always study. Any sort of math requires some sort of memorizing a formula. Precalc especially, has a handful of formulas one needs to remember. In college, homework alone will not pass students like it did in high school so making sure to do good on tests and quizzes makes the class less stressful. In order to pass however, unless you are some sort of genius, you have to study.
