Hi everybody. I'm 40 years old and have been working sales and retail jobs for most of my career and have decided that I'm going to back to school part time with eventually going into mechanical or bio medical engineering. I plan on taking linear algebra and calculus 1 in the fall of 2019 to get ahead on the math courses. Then transition to full time in a couple years.

I figure I'll download a precalculus state exam and see how well I do to gauge my level before going into calculus.

Does anyone have any tips on self study? Or how often I should be reading? I picked up the allendoerfer text principles of mathematics after reading several posts on this forum. So I plan on working through that until September.

Thank you.
