I've been interested in math and physics sence middleschool. However, I have never pursued a higher education in the matter, other then what I have taught myself. I would like to go to college soon, but in the mean time was wondering on ways that I could get myself prepared. Ive done some reading around here and it's becoming pretty clear that I need to work more on my math. I have never been able to teach myself very mathematics very well from studying books. Insted, I have acceled when taught in some verbal way. My question is this; Are their any ways I might be able to improve my ablitly to teach myself math from a textbook, and, what level of math/physics knowledge should I intend upon acheiving prior to or even during college.
