They also have a version called 8.011 "Designed for students with previous experience in 8.01". Would you know if that's for those who took the course and didn't pass, or is that an advanced version for those who studied the subject in high school but want to do it again to make sure they've got the basics securely?
Heh. 8.011 is a new invention for those who failed 8.01... they used to just teach 8.01 every term, not 8.01 in the fall and 8.011 in the spring. The advanced version of 8.01 is 8.012; it assumes that you have had at least 1D calculus (equivalent of 18.01 or AP Calculus BC) and has a lot more theory and math than 8.01.
