    Can anybody recommend a good site to bone up on differentiating and integrating ln and e functions?

    Any good Calculus book should do it!

    The general rule is:

    d/dx[a^u] = (u' a^u)*ln(a) for all bases, a, greater than 0

    Which for e, simplifies to:

    d/dx[e^u] = u' e^u

    Integral is just the opposite, of course.
