Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
This class is great for students who need a bit of review before going to the big leagues (calculus). I would recommend this class to people who haven't been in school, or in a math class, for an extended period of time that require certain math credits for their major. However, if you just came to college straight out of high school, then you should at least try to test out of this class depending on what your last math class was. I took calculus my senior year of high school, and then elementary functions for calc (precalc) my freshman year of college, and it was a piece of cake. I liked the class because it was easy, but I didn't like it because there was no challenge. This class, like many other classes in college, is very fast paced. If you don't have the time to do the homework, you won't have the best chance in passing the class. The only reason I wouldn't recommend this class is if you know it will be an easy A for you. Don't take this class if it isn't challenging you. I understand if you take it because you couldn't test out of it, but you should always try to take classes that will challenge your skills.
Course highlights:
This class is a lot of review, you will need to remember a basic understanding of math and how to use different techniques to answer math questions without a calculator, but it will also teach you new techniques as well. There is a ton of graphing in this course, and it's also one of the best classes to teach you how to graph if you aren't the best at graphing.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Don't just stare at a problem you don't know how to solve. Always do what you can, and then if you get stuck, try thinking outside the box. You'll be surprised of all the different ways to get the correct answer. And don't be afraid to ask the teacher/professor for help.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
