S^a looks really foreign at first, but once you write the formulas down next to your old ones and work some problems you can see it's basically just multiplying an 'a' through each of your terms, which intuitively makes sense (at least to me).

Quite frankly, from someone who got a 3 in November and a 5 in March, there is nothing more aggravating than missing 4 or 5 questions due to bad algebra.

No specific topic is hard in my opinion, but it is very easy to screw up algebra on this exam and it will single-handedly kill you no matter how well you know the material.
