    infinite series and power series

    hi guys, anyone have any good websites about these series and if theres any way to remember all those different tests to prove if the series or absolutely or conditionally convergent and divergent.

    And also, i always get confused what is convergent and what is divergent

    Covergent basically = to any number??
    and divergent = to infinity ??

    Convergent means that there is some finite number that the series converges to.

    Divergent means the series sums to \pm\infty or that the series fluctuates between several values (like \sum (-1)^n, for instance, a series who's sum fluctuates from 0 to 1 forever).
