What methods or tricks are there to approach antiderivatives, beyond what's learned in Calculus II? I'm just talking about ordinary, analytic stuff like [tex] \int \sqrt{ \tan x } dx [/tex] not requiring 'special' functions. I mean, the integral tables were around for a while, right, so how did they solve all those things?
edit: by 'beyond Calc. II' I mean other than things like
-clever substitutions
-method of partial fractions
-integration by parts
-series expansions
etc.
