I have just completed my algebra class. In ascending order I have to take Algebra+Trig, Pre-calc, and Calc. I received a "B" in my algebra class; it's a passing grade, but not particularly good. I had a hard time retaining the previous material, when learning new concepts. I will say, that my professor for the class was not a great teacher. He would project a paper with the material already answered(lots of incorrect answers too), quickly read over it, and move on. I have picked a professor for my next class, who has phenomenal reviews, so I'm hoping that will help. Anyways, I have looked in the Calculus section here and all the variables are very intimidating. Will I have a natural progression as I move up the list(assuming I put the required effort into it)? I am confident I will pass ALG-Trig; but come time for Pre-calc, I am afraid I will hit a wall. Any tips, knowledge, or experiences with my situation are greatly appreciated.
