Any good sites for learning math?

    I starting in actuarial mathematics in September, so I would like to get ahead a bit and do some learning on my own. These are my obligatory courses:

    So if anyone knows a good place where I could get ahead and start learning any of these topics, please go ahead and post it.

    It would be a good idea to search for the best textbooks thread I think.

    Here is a link worth bookmarking.

    This is also excellent, download the pdf titled Advanced Calculus

    Chapters 1 and 2 of that book cover quite a bit of linear algebra. I think some exposure to the theory of Calculus of a single variable is very useful before reading the rest of it though.

    Some good books worth buying are Calculus by Michael Spivak and Linear Algebra Done Right by Sheldon Axler. Both are excellent.

    Judging by the description, I've already covered all the topics in Advanced calculus I and II and I have covered some linear algebra, so I think the latter, as well as probability, analysis, and statistics are the topics that I haven't seen before.

    As a supplementary reference, if you need to check definitions at any point, there's always Mathworld .
