    Never ever depend on class lectures or professors. Study the materials by yourselves. Tests are really tough. Prepare yourself the best to overcome the tests.

    Take the placement tests seriously. If you can place out of precalc and Cac 1 or Calc A then do it!! Otherwise you will have to take lower classes and check whether you want to take MAT or AMS and which ones apply to your major. Sometimes AMS might be a quicker sequence.
