It might be worthwhile to work through a calculus textbook alongside HRW so these confusions can be rectified.

Well, I am taking a course on Calculus through the Art of Problem Solving. I'm using their book, but I still don't understand this idea of computing with differentials.

I am not familiar with the Art of Problem Solving; maybe you could try a second resource that's more clear?

Here's a good online one

Their book is absolutely excellent, and their books are some of the most popular among math olympiad contestants and young mathematicians around the world. I do agree that one source is not enough; reading from and using multiple sources is always optimal.

I do, however, already have a lot of backlog from the course, so I'll start going through something more rigorous after it ends.

sorry kid, i may try again tomorrow to explain what a differential is, or you could google how to integrate say a one form.
