Good for you. I took freshman algebra in high school, then basic algebra in
college (five years later). I passed freshman algebra by doing lots of
extra credit (research papers on math subjects :-)). I managed to do quite
well in college algebra. The sad part was I was taking Shakespeare, Brit.
Lit., Eng. Lit., and Modern Grammar at the same time, spending less time on
these classes, and getting better grades in them. Three hours a night on
algebra..the memory still gives me the shakes.
