Why should YOU consider taking a three-hour refresher course?

  • Because you haven't taken an algebra or english course in over a year.

  •  Your "basic" arithmetic, reading, and sentence skills are a bit rusty. 
  •  It will prepare you to score your best on the test, which will help ensure that you are placed in the correct level math and english courses at Cape Cod Community College.
  •  Taking time now to prepare and study may help you avoid spending time and money later on a lower level developmental math course.
