    how mathematician get their maths so good

    i mean c'mon, endless number of formulas and ways of solving it, you're not going to remember all of the methods, right?

    for me, i just can't deal with memorization and strictly speaking,i'm also partial maths major student and i'm suffering like hell

    sometimes, I wonder if entering university was a mistake to begin with

    You must first change your attitude. Your desciption concerning "numbers, formulas, ways, and methods" is very telling. You have not understood at all the purpose of the study of mathematics. Learning to memorize is not learning to think. Leaning to regurgitate is not learning to solve. Learning to reproduce is not learning to synthesize. Fix your purpose and there will be no need to question your existence.
