    Doing 2nd yr uni maths after having not done maths in 2 years =O

    Hello!

    I'm Chloe. I'm doing two 2nd year advanced maths courses at uni (Real and Complex Analysis + Vector Calculus and Linear Algebra) and I've been struggling a lot because it's been two years since I've done uni maths.

    I've forgotten basic things like how to integrate trig functions, how to use trig identities to that end, etc. Even when I learn it again, I've lost a lot of computational speed!

    I'm about 1.5 months away from final exams and it's not looking too good.

    I'll keep working though, and you guys seem so smart and helpful =)

    Hi, If you get stuck you can always post on the forums here, and they can guide you but don't expect them to answer your question without you even attempting it, because you're the one who has to learn it so not trying to scare you or anything but try your best and post what troubles you, that's what I've learned since I've used the math help forum, and the people who help you are great, and it's sometimes crazy how they can stand some of the things I've seen lol or even me at times I guess. Another thing, you can always ask your prof if you don't understand something during office hours or whatever, and also some people on youtube have great guides on trig and etc, I recommend Patrickjmt, he's awesome for pre - calc/ linear algebra/ calc, you name it. Good luck in your future studies!
