I wish to master Multivariate Calculus(to the extent required to get an A with a ridiculously difficult professor) and Linear Algebra in 3 weeks so I can breeze through both classes in the Fall semester. I've self studied both of my textbooks that I will be using for the two courses, but I'd like to know if anyone has any advice for the most efficient method for mastering the material in these books. ______________________________________________________________________________ My Multivariate Calculus course will be from Calculus by James Stewart 6th Edition: We will cover section 11.3-11.6 + everything in chapter 13, 14, 15, and 16. So far I've been watching MIT lecture videos and doing the example problems in each section. My Linear Algebra course will be from Introduction to Linear Algebra by Strang International Edition: We will cover everything from chapter 1-7. Much like with Multivariate Calculus, I'm watching the appropriate MIT lecture videos(which sync very well since the author of the text is also the lecturer on the MIT videos). My Discrete Mathematics course will be from Discrete Mathematics and Its Applications (6th Edition) by Kenneth H. Rosen: We will cover chapters 1.1-1.7, 2.1-2.4, 3.1-3.8, 4.1-4.4, and 5.1-5.3. ______________________________________________________________________________ I know my Linear Algebra and Discrete Mathematics teachers have a very fair grading policy so I can get an A in their classes very easily. I'm also very good with proofs so that won't be any problem, at least in the case of Linear Algebra and Discrete Maths(which is basically an intro to proofs). However, I will have the same teacher I did for Calculus III as I did for Calculus II. The problem is, I was the only person in the entire class to get a grade higher than a B(I got a B+) for Calculus II and my teacher is very unfair with his exams(he gives the hardest questions you'll see for a computational course) and he required us to do many proofs(which caused many students to fail) in a non-proof based class. By the time school starts, I want to know Multivariate Calculus well enough where I would get an A in almost any comparable course with the most difficult professors. I'm really worried about the professor I have for Calculus III because he says he never gives out A's(in fact, he told people that were looking for A's to drop the course immediately), but on the flip side, anyone who can get a C in his class can probably get an A in a comparable course with any other professor. However, I'm aiming for an A, being the madman I am. I plan to study non-stop between now and 3 weeks from now when school starts so I can get the most out of my Calculus III class(and of course, so I can get the highest grade possible). As I mentioned before, my Linear Algebra and Discrete mathematics courses won't be any issue since the professors are very relaxed with grading compared to my Calculus III professor.
