Hi all,

I have just visited the final lecture of calculus at school and I have a little problem with integrals. I am now familiar with "elementary integration formulas", "by parts method" and "by u-substitution method". And my question is:is there any general evaluation progresswith which I will evaluate all integrals which will be on the final exam (I think those which can be evaluated, and where I only use "by parts" method or "by u-substitution" method)?

I think something like:

============================================

-1. "First try if you can evaluate integral immediately (if it is elementary)."

-2. "Then try the "by parts" method."

-3. "Then try to simplify the formula (e.g. by proper substitution)"

...

============================================

Thanks.
