None. All materials are included in the course.

**Recommended (Optional)**

While the course materials cover everything needed to pass the course, you may find them brief in places, especially topics that may be challenging to you. If you discover that is the case, you may want to purchase an additional text to refer to to for explanations and examples beyond those provided in the course materials.

Virtually any text with *College Algebra* in the title will discuss this same list of topics (possibly in a slightly different
order) and would be a suitable reference. Older, inexpensive editions of textbooks
can be found in the used book market. Other inexpensive options are *Schaum’s Outline of College Algebra* and similar texts from other companies. You can also find a lot of information and
examples by doing a search on the Internet.

For students living outside of the United States, exams conducted in other countries
must be administered **ONLY** at an English-speaking testing center or learning center.
