Should I take Math 2?

<p>Currently I am signed up for US History only. Should I go ahead and take Math 2 tmrw? I'm afraid I won't have enough opportunities to retake or take more SAT 2 subject tests, but I have not prepared for Math 2. However, on my SAT I got an 800 on the math portion, and I am one of the top math students at my school (going into Calculus 2 next year).</p>

<p>What do you guys think? Would it be a smart idea or would I end up getting a 700-750 by not studying?</p>

<p>is a 700-750 considered a bad score? Well, there is a curve for the test, so you can get a few wrong and still maintain a perfect score... try a practice test and see how well you do?</p>

<p>I would take one or two of the SparkNotes online practice tests and see how you do. A lot of people find the math in Math II fairly simple. If you're going into Calc 2, you've probably learned almost all of the techniques, so it's just a matter of making sure you remember how to do it all.</p>

<p>Definitely. If you're going to take Calculus next year, you should have learned almost all, if not all, the math that will be on the test. Note, I'm writing "should", because I have no idea how your school's curriculum might be run, but I just attend a regular public school, and I've learned all that junk, even if I've forgotten some.</p>

<p>ive already taken calculus BC, linear algebra, and multivariable calculus. This stuff is really basic and I learned it in middle school which is why I'm worried.</p>

<p>Considering he is applying to schools probably as someone who is intense in math, not an 800 will raise eyebrows.</p>

<p>I agree. If you're a math person, which it seems that you are, but you don't get an 800, that will hurt you a lot. It is really basic, so why would you miss any? Study some so you can assure an 800. You probably do math competitions, and it's an extremely watered-down form of those.</p>

<p>Yes I used to be one of the top in my state for math competitions but i slowed down on that. It is really basic, and I learned it a long time ago, I'm afraid I won't remember how to do some extremely basic stuff. I can miss 5 and still get an 800?</p>
