    If you are a bit rusty on the algebra, I'd strongly recommend taking an Elementary or Intermediate Algebra class before jumping into College Algebra. These are not credit classes (at my school you are given a pass/fail grade), but they provide a good solid foundation for College Algebra. Utilize all the math resources your school offers. For instance, we have a math lab where we can go and watch videos that go along with the textbook, have a study group meeting, or get one-on-one tutoring for free. It is supported by grant money supplied by the state. Never miss a class if you can help it. Always try to work through a section on your own at home before you go over it in class. That way, you know where your weak spots are and you know the right questions to ask.

    I was very leary of chemistry and signed up for tutoring. Right now, with the help of allot of people on this board, I understand where we are at, but I am still going to take tutoring. Just to be safe and actually pass this course. I would suggest you do the same.

    I am not a big one on study groups (except for A&P) because they usually turn into a social club or the one's that haven't studied all semester tend to want you to teach them what they missed.

    So I guess my vote goes to tutoring!
