The content of Level 2 Algebra is a significant step up from Level 1 so if you did not pass the MCAT you will find this challenging. Algebra is needed for Calculus later on in Level 2 and is essential for level 3 Maths, Physics and Chemistry if you intend to do that next year.
A calculator is essential. A scientific calculator is good enough, though a graphics calculator can save you lots of time in solving problems and in exams.
Don't rely on your cell phone as they are not allowed in exams and are more clumsy to operate than a dedicated calculator.
Please bring a quad maths exercise book such as 1E5 and a pen!!!
