    Just starts Calc....worried

    So i just started attending my calculus class for the fall and i realized that though i understand the calculus, my general algebra has a lot of holes in it.......and suggestions?



    thought i'd ask the pros before i started trudging through this when there's an easier way.

    There is no easy way. Go back to the materials you used for algebra and start revising from the ground up.

    Note: My suggestion is the one that students usually don't want to hear because it means they have to do spend time doing the hard yards.

    I actually have the same problem. I took Algebra when I was a freshman/8th grader. What's been helping me is looking at the practice problems the professor assigns, if it requires some type of algebra I'll troll these forums, and look for what I need, or just ask around and once I get it down, it stays with me. If your college has refresher courses in Algebra/Trig I'd recommend those as well. I'll be taking them as soon as I can.
