So I picked up Mathematical Methods by Riley, Hobson and Bence. I'm planning on taking the following classes: -Signals and Systems -Electronics -EMag -Communications I bought Shaum's books as well, to get my feet wet so I'm not completely blind-sided by the material. Before those get here in the mail, and for the course of the summer, what specific mathematic subjects should I look over? Also: Are there any cheap ways to work with microcontrollers? Any resources I could start looking into, beginner guides. Hopefully I'll get a project started soon as well.
