I am an EE major and planning on transferring to a different school next year and noticed that instead of stand alone Linear and Diff Eq classes they have an amalgamated EE math class that teaches you all the math fundamental to EE. I was reading the reviews of this course and everyone seems to think it is really fast paced and leaves out some certain things. Here is the Course description:

This course is designed to acquaint the student with the basic mathematical tools used in electrical and computer engineering. The concepts covered in this course will be used in higher level courses and, more importantly, throughout you career as an engineer. Major topics of the course include complex numbers, real and complex functions, signal representation, elementary matrix algebra, solutions to linear systems of equations, functional approximation by curve fitting, linear differential equations, Laplace transforms used for solving linear differential equations, Fourier Transforms and their uses in solving electrical engineering problems.

I am decent at math (currently have an A in Calc 2) but I am not completely secure in my abilities as I feel some of my base knowledge is a little shaky. I just have a strong work ethic. Next semester I have the opportunity to take Linear and Diff Eq (both intro) stand alone classes. I was wondering if this would be a good Idea as prep for this course or am I more than likely over thinking this? If I did want to prep for this course what other way would you suggest? Any good books or websites that you know of?

Thanks for any suggestions or insight!
