Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum and I was wondering if you guys could give me some advice with school. I am currently a junior in high school taking 15 credits a quarter through a community college through a program in my sate called running start, I wish to acquire an Associate of Science degree by the time I graduate High School. So far I've completed some humanities such as: English 101, Global Issues, and pre-calculus 1. I am currently taking a history class, English 102 and I got into a year long biology sequence this quarter by talking to the instructor. I got a D in pre-cal because the teachers teaching style and my learning style didn't mesh but I have a very strong interest in mathematics, I managed to test into pre-calculus 2 but my college counselor explained to me that I could test into calculus if I was able to raise my trigonometry score on the compass test. I've been studying the trigonometry portion of pre-calculus with the help of my high school math teacher. So far I have studied: Trig Functions, Graphs of Trig Functions, Trigonometric Identities and Equations. Is there anything else I can do to make sure I test into Calculus the next time I take the compass test?

Another question I had was: I wanted to major in Astrophysics, and the only class at my community college related to physics is General Physics. This is a year long sequence and is not calculus based. I was wondering if this would be a good sequence to take considering it's not calculus based. The other choice would be to take a chemistry sequence. I was also wondering if you guys had any other suggestions on classes to take. Thanks in advance for any advice.
