Hello everyone I took my placement tests a while ago, thankfully I just had to take the Math 2 one and I thought I did pretty well.

But I have a question about that: If you failed that test what math course would I be in? And If I passed it what math course would I be in?

7New MemberAnd in the description it says that I am eligible to register for either Calculus I (Math 135), or Calculus I for Math and the Physical Sciences (Math 151). Could some who took those courses give me a brief overview on it please?

384Memberhere's a quick summary:

from Math 151-152 Information and Course Organization

25New MemberPut it this way; I hardly ever did any hw in 135 and got an A, while in 152, I had to kill myself to make a B.

So yeah, 151 is definitely harder than 135 and you shouldn't take 151 unless you're very interested in math, or need it for your major.

2New MemberCan someone go into even more detail about the contents of the test?

Thanks

384Memberthat's really it.
