I would recommend having a multivariable calc class before doing analysis at the level of Baby Rudin. Singlevariable calc you can get by on the formulas, but you tone up your geometric skills in multivariable with tangent planes, normals, volume elements and so on. Having strong geometric visualization skills pays big dividends in Baby Rudin when you're trying to understand the chapter on topology.

College of staten island's engineering department put together this resource lists of free college learning material, I found it useful! maybe some of you might too

i have been watching a few of these videos from khan academy and harvey mudd, and the thing that strikes me is how clear they are and also how slowly they move. it is hard for me to believe that schools like harvey mudd do not take more for granted from their students than that. It is hard for me to believe that a good student there who has read the book would be able to force himself to go to class.
My classes at UGA move much faster than those classes (as well as the ones I have seen at harvard, brandeis, and utah) and go much deeper than the khan academy courses. I would recommend a student in my class watch the khan academy video before coming to class, to help keep up with the lecture. And they need to watch several videos to cover one lecture. I think the khan videos i have seen are remarkably clear, patient, and useful for even a high school student who knows almost nothing to get the basics of the subject, but I would think most college classes, certainly honors level ones, will be much more challenging than these videos. It also seems my honors level freshman calc at UGA (one level below the Spivak course) was on a higher level than harvey mudd's intro to analysis class, but i could be wrong. I'm just saying, do not expect classes at top schools, especially those aimed at math majors, to hold your hand as some of these videos do. They will assume far more skill with algebra and background material, and discuss much deeper and more subtle aspects of the subject. Of course if an analysis student has only rudin to learn from he needs as much clarity and patience as possible from the lecturer.

The Khan videos are really for people who either do not have access to traditional schooling or need remedial assistance. Most of the topics are for highschool level courses. His pace is perfect for what it is aimed at.
I believe the Harvey Mudd analysis class is for freshmen. http://www.math.hmc.edu/~su/math131/ Good luck on doing a better job making Rudin work for 1st year students...

Are you guys talking about Landau's classical mechanics book? Because from the list of lectures here:
http://www.cosmolearning.com/videol...dynamics9732/ it seems the course is at a higher level than Landau. Landau's is a small 167 page text with no applications of classical mechanics to other physics.
