Notes about Exam 1.  The first exam is given right at the beginning of the semester and it covers most of the material that was in your placement exam. This is intentional. Not only does it give you a 2 week review of the background material you need, it acts as another gauge to tell you whether or not you should possibly move to Calculus 1A.  If you fail the first exam we strongly recommend you move to a Calculus 1A section.  They meet at the same time and it's easy to change sections. the math dept administrative assistant will be happy to help you out.
