 ##### Algebra Basics: Prerequisite Check

We teach hard concepts with the easiest words we can. Let's make sure you know the words and ideas we need. This course is just right if you get at least 80% on this test, but less than 70% of the place-out test. This test should be very easy for you, since it is only making sure you have the basics to understand.
