    My advice would be the opposite of what that other guy said about doing your homework. Use the solutions. There's no point in doing all of it and then checking your answers, only to find out you did it all wrong. Look at the examples, do the homework, make sure you're doing it right, and prosper. Math isn't hard; all you've got to do is rinse and repeat.

    Failed first two exams with flying colors, dropped course, changed major.

    For anyone taking a Calculus course, Chemistry or Physics you might want to check out http://www.khanacademy.org. Great tutorial videos on those subjects and some more as well. Thanks for all y'alls suggestions. Patrickjmt is also good as someone else said.

    I'm taking Calculus With Analytic Geometry this fall but I'm pretty damn rusty with my trigonometry. Guess I should start refreshing now.

    I probably would've had more success taking it over a full semester. That and I hadn't taken Cal 1 in almost two years and probably didn't prepare correctly.

    LOL what? Some guys been telling me that Accounting has harder math than engineering. And civil and environmental have the easiest math in engineering.

    They lied. Accounting is a joke compared to engineering.

    I sure hope not. Supposedly the hardest math course for accounting is statistics which I don't believe compares to any calculus course.

    Not sure what Cal 2 is or you guys but is it the one with different techniques of integration and then introduction of conics and polar coordinates? I'm currently taking it right now and I find it kinda fun. My instructor's a doctor of mathematics apparently, but with the really chill (and often unorganized) style of teaching it's kinda hard to follow it.

    And accounting? In my school, accounting majors still have some kind of calc, but it might be just Calc 1 for you guys.
