I'm taking calculus this quarter and yesterday we took an assessment, I'm pretty sure I got a D or a C on it (it's not graded) but I took precal 2 just last quarter..And I got one of the highest grades. I feel like if I were given a quick review most of it would come back to me, but we won't be getting that I don't think.

Is this normal in math? If you have this problem does it usually come back to you as you learn the new material, or do you have to study rigorously to relearn everything you forgot?
