I'm planning on continuing my education after about a ten year break. I originally got an AAS in criminal justice. Then I left the country for a long time. Anyway, I'm back now and I'd like your advice. I'm planning on doing some math and science classes at the local community college before transferring of to uni-land. I placed into http://www.howardcc.edu/academics/program_information/course_outlines/math/MATH%20070%20Course%20Outline.pdf" [Broken] via Accuplacer. The tract is then PrecalculusI and PrecalculusII before finally getting to Calculus. My sister has suggested a couple of math teachers (from the high school where she works) that she feels can bring me up the level of placing into CalcI in time to start the spring term, about six months. Since I already have 2 years of college, I don't really need the 6 Precalc credits or the Math-070 credits either. My adviser also suggested I take the Accuplacer again since I wasn't too far from placing into the Precalc classes as it is. What do you guys think about skipping these credit classes in favor of being tutored by experienced professionals in the hopes of placing into a higher level? Thanks in advance.
