My opinion is had I known the Technician material better I would have done better on the General. Seemed like more of the same, just the next level... so for me, a recap of the Technician's material is paramount to me even understanding the General material. Call this Calc 1, General is Calc 2- you just can't skip the prerequisite or you'll have no idea what's going on. At least I can't.
Looking forward to the class Dave, it's on the calendar.
