I need to learn Calculus II over the summer. I won't be able to take summer courses. I need to be ready to take differential equations in the fall. Hope me!
About ten years ago I somehow passed Calc I, II, and III, even though I had practically no discipline to get my ass to class or to study. I never graduated, entered the corporate world, and promptly forgot everything except basic algebra and trig. Ten years later, I was laid off and went back to school to finish my degree.
I need differential equations for my engineering degree. For that, I need Calc I and Calc II. I'm re-taking Calc I right now, and I have a strong A in the class.
Differential equations is a major prerequisite for a lot of my other classes. Because I have the Calc II credit, I could theoretically take that in the fall, but because I remember nothing from the last time I took Calc II, I'd do pretty horribly. I was hoping to take Calc II over the summer, but that's not going to be possible.
What's the best way for me to be ready for differential equations in the fall? My calculus book covers I and II, so that's a resource. I read this question
and found a lot of good info in there. I'm looking for more resources that will guide me through a self-taught semester of Calc II over the summer.
