|From Math-Tutors.com Frequently Asked Questions:
# Avoid, at ALL costs, any ASU instructors that use WebWorK in their class. I have dealt with WebWorK in the past, and it is a way for instructors to not bothering grading homework (they get the computer to do this). I guarantee you will be working two to FIVE times as much getting homework done with WebWorK as you would with traditional homework assignments. Often, you may have the correct answer, but WebWorK will not even accept it as correct, and the actual tests you take are very different in format, making WebWorK a nearly useless tool for students to learn math. I have YET to meet a student who actually LIKED it.
