I would recommend this course for students who wish to be able to fully develop their mathematic skills. If you went through your years of math courses and couldn't find a way to put it all together, this course can definitely show you how to do just that.

Ask your teacher for extra practice problems. Study them at home and solve them. Without this extra work, you will not make it through this class.
