<p>I took the same course at h.s and wanted to see if i could skip math 16a or 1a for that matter. I emailed the math department yesterday and got a response today. Here is the response...</p>

<p>"You'll have to have equivalency determined between the course you took and our Math 16A or 16B. But it will probably cover at least 16A. You might enroll in 16B for the fall semester. If you intend to take more math than just a first-year sequence of calculus, you should consider taking the Math 1 series. Again, you could probably start with Math 1B. The 1 series is quite a bit tougher than the 16 series, but it's the one you'd want if you were intending to major in a physical science, or wanted to go on to multivariable calculus, linear algebra, etc."</p>

<p>So yeah.. I think you can go straight to 1B if you are confident. I heard 1B is really horrible and more difficult than one might think so i suggest you review 1a material over the summer.</p>
