### Do you really need college algebra if you took algebra1 and algebra 2 and passed it?

Your need for mathematical skills will depend heavily upon your
chosen profession. Some people use algebra a lot, and others don't
use it at all. If you are going into a scientific field you will
need to learn calculus, and to do that you will need a good grasp
of algebra, geometry, and trigonometry.

###### Asked in Science, Engineering, Algebra

### Is engineering tough if you are good at algebra?

Basically, any university study is tough. In the case of
engineering, you need to learn lots of math and science. However,
being good an algebra is a good sign. Of course you'll need to
learn quite a bit more than high-school algebra, but knowing this
algebra is an important basis - you'll need it to study
engineering. Also, it is an indication that you might be good at
other, similar, subjects (i.e., more advanced math).
