Calculus ready?

    I took the act twice an got a 22 and 23 math subscore. Is that bad or good? Does thar mean I'm ready or not ready for calculus?

    What math have you taken, and how old are you? The ACT isn't really a great indicator for me. Pretty much as long as you are solid in Algebra II, Geometry, and a few Precalculus topics you should be good. A 22 is good on the act depending on the colleges you are looking at, everything is relative.

    calculus readiness is based on mastery of algebra first and geometry second.
