I already know the answer to this, but would like your opinion on the quickest way to calculate integrals like these. I am finding myself evaluating similar integrals in my diffeq homework, and the method that I used (parts and partial fractions) is a mess and takes way too long (if it were to appear on a test).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]\int\left(\frac{1-x}{x^2-4}\right)dx[/tex]

Thanks.
