# Review for Math 15 and Math 25

It is often helpful to review math topics before taking Math 15 and Math 25. Both of these courses require students to have knowledge of algebra and precalc topics. Math 25 requires students to have knowledge of topics covered in a first semester calc course. It is especially important to review if you scored low on the Readiness Exam or if you haven't taken a math class in awhile.
