Calculus II is giving me a hard time!! Im embarrased to say this but I've taken Cal II 2 times already and can't get passed it. I don't understand what Im doing wrong. Im taking it this summer for the sake of getting it all over with quickly. I was confident when I went in to class because I bought Calculus for Dummies and read the crap out of it before the summer session started but somehow when it came to taking the first test I ended up making a 60 on it. I dont understand what im doing wrong. Im usually horrible at memorizing things but im really good at solving problems so I think that might have to do with it. I've never had to take a course so many times over and over except for Cal II. I have to be honest, I've never liked math but since I first stepped into a Calculus II class my outlook on math has turned around; I love it and I think it's so interesting. It frustrates me that I can't get through this class even after I taken it 2 times already.The worst part of this is that the class is sort of a road block to some of my engineering classes. I just don't know anymore...I have really bad test anxiety and I feel that's to blame but I dont know what else it could possibly be. After taking the class that many times I feel like I know the material so well but it's different feeling once I take a test. I was wondering if anyone thinks this is normal? and if it is how one did it to overcome and survive the class? I do have one particular question though, is it normal for teachers not to let you use a calculator or formula/integral sheet on the test?
