I have been putting off studying for about a week, knowing this weekend i would hunker down and look over the algebra review for the grad school i've applied to. I go next Tuesday to take the assessment test and see if i place out of the math, but i'm thinking, hell to the no. That is not going to happen. I've been looking at this for 3 hours, and i totally can't get it. It doesn't help that i am harboring some real anger over having to even take algebra. I have been in the working world, if you will, since 2001. I only had 2 college courses of math for my degree. Let me tell you, i haven't used algebra in all that time. And i don't anticipate that i will. So can someone please tell me why i need to take a stinking algebra course?! It isn't like i'm going for some sort of math centered or science centered degree where i would be utilizing it in my future work. Does anyone utilize it in their daily work? Besides algebra teachers? This sucks, it is going to cost more money since there is no way i will place out of it, and it is irrelevant to my daily life!
