I am resuming my education after a two year break (due to a career change). I am a little confused as to how to handle my current situation regarding math. When I left school two years ago, I was ready for calculus having completed college algebra and trigonometry. Since then, my algebra skills have taken a hit and I do not believe they are where they need to be for calculus. My question is, what is the best way to sharpen these skills? I am torn between using my old college algebra textbook (I still have it with the student solutions manal) for self study or to just take the college algebra class over again (5 credit hours - quarter class). Thank you.
