[SOLVED] Help a newbie! Hey everyone. This will be my first post. A little background info: I have a bit of math anxiety due to doing very poorly with it in school despite a bit of effort. I had finished college in May with a degree that required only Statistics. My last year, I had enrolled in Calculus (I got to Calculus in Highschool, but didn't understand it, but made very little effort) but dropped out because of panic attacks. I saved my text book so I could learn on my own, as I am very disappointed in my horrible record and sentiment regarding mathematics. Anyway, I've been reading through, trying to teach myself, and i'm on page 114 (not yet Calculus). Everything has been smooth sailing, until I got stuck on some log questions. I don't understand how C and D was done, as there are no steps to follow. I've been staring at a few couple pages for quite a while and am very frustrated. On a side note, are there any textbooks that are fairly easy to comprehend for Calculus beginners? I'm not too fond of this book, but it's all I have. Thanks for the help in advance, I'm glad a forum like this exists.
