Hello. I am in first year college studying electronics engineering and computer science and i am 20 years old. I recently did the national mathematics exam to go to college and had 160 out of 200. Ironic, huh? I failed math at 10 grade and stoped doing any math for 3 years. By the time of the exam i didnt know how to solve a first degree equation or add negative numbers. So i studied all the material tested in the exam, 4years worth on my own in 5 months from pre algebra - geometry - trigonometry to derivatives and complex numbers. I didnt study much deeply successions and statistics, didnt need. I know i covered a lot of ground, mainly because i felt in love for math, proofs and rigor. I even read some stuff on langs basic mathematics book. Now in college, taking integral calculus i have no problems in math, i love math. I put a lot of effort, prefering to understand, not just nemorize. But am i kidding my self? Studying this fast will hurt me in the future? I want to know your sincere opinions. Because sometimes i feel the strange notion that i should have done more exercises, read nore books,, again, have no problems though. Do you have the same feeling?
