Hello. I’m transferring from community college to engineering school next fall and I don’t feel too good about my math skills.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was not a good student when I was a kid. I’ve just recently learned all the math I know in community college.

I’m just coming out of calculus 3, and got a good grade, but I don’t know how the content of the course stacks up to university standards.

We didn’t cover Jacobians, line integrals, surface integrals or anything else from the last chapter on vector calculus.

Also, I’ve never had any exposure to probability, statistics, or differential equations. My calculus 2 professor skipped the chapter introducing differential equations.

I will defiantly be taking differential equations next semester and almost certainly another math but I don’t know which one yet.

I’ve got some cheap, old, out of edition textbooks on linear algebra, ODEs, my calculus book, and about four and a half hours per day to study.

But I don’t know how best to spend this time. What should I focus on?

If it matters ill be going in for Chemical engineering with the hope of getting into a masters program for nuclear engineering.
