hello. i am a freshman, and i will be taking an analysis (honors) course next quarter, and the textbook used will most likely be baby rudin. That will be my first exposure to the subject, although i did take an honors multivar calculus sequence last quarter that attempted to be more rigorous and formal than your typical calculus class. right now i'm taking an honors linear algebra (lower div) class which so far is below the level we treated calculus. i've heard that rudin's book is hard and i feel like i might be unprepared for it. can i read something in advance so that i won't be struggling to keep up when the time comes?
