It says on the website that it’s only recommended for certain majors, but I was at an Orientation Advisory meeting today and the word is on the street that if there’s even a chance you might need it, you should.
Basically, if you ever plan on taking pre-calc, business math, or any of the calculuses, you need it. If you’re just going for a B.A. or something and were planning on only taking a math like problem solving, you won’t need it.
But a lot of people end up taking classes that have some sort of math as a pre-req, and you’d need ALEKS to get into that. Especially if you end up changing your major or something.
Also, apparently the list of majors has changed. My brother is coming in as an Econ major, and it wasn’t on there before but I told him to check again and it was added.
