If you have any hope of going to college, you really need to take Algebra 2 at the very least.  It is unlikely that you could get in to many colleges without Alg 2 and even if you can (like if you go to a community college), you'll have to take a lot of remedial math to get up to the college level.

You can use this link to look through typical areas that are covered in Algebra 2 -- http://www.classzone.com/books/algebra_2/index.cfm

As for whether it's hard, that's pretty much an individual issue.  What's hard for one person is not hard for another.

I always highly encourage my students to take as much math as they can in high school.  High school generally offers an environment that is more comfortable for asking questions and having things repeated.  Your high school teacher will generally be there before and after school to offer help and your class sizes will generally be smaller.  In college your classes can be very large, and the professor may only be available during posted office hours.

Algebra 2 builds on the concepts from Algebra 1.  Generally spending more time on quadratic equations than on the linear equations from Algebra 1.

Algebra 2 is it hard?  Well, as said before that is an individual issue.  But, like many other things in life, put in the work, and it will pay off in the end.

You should really go for algebra 2. As its quite important if you are going for any college enterance test.

algebra is not very hard once you figure out the fundamentals and practice them regularly. And don't worry if you get stuck then we all are here to provide you Algebra help online till the time you need the direction to solve it rather than an answer.
