This is a very serious question to me and I would like some advice... I am thinking of taking an entire semester off (4 months total) to study math on my own. Currently I am taking calculus 2 averaging 97%, although many people might consider that gratifying, which I'm not saying it isn't, I don't feel like my skills are where I would like them to be. If I decide to take a semester off I will study Algebra: https://www.amazon.com/Elementary-A...9064/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1332801226&sr=8-1 Trig: https://www.amazon.com/trigonometry...=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1332801381&sr=1-1 Calc 1,2 : https://www.amazon.com/Calculus-Ear...=sr_1_5?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1332801498&sr=1-5 Geometry: Never taken a class. University Physics I: Mechanics and (IF I have time) discrete math or elementary lineary algebra. My goal is to gain a solid foundation by filling in any gaps that I have, by doing this I hope to gain a higher understanding of math which will benefit me when I have to take upper level math classes, physics classes and academia in general. Currently I have not decided on a career path but I know it will fall in the line of mathematics and in my opinion, with a stronger foundation will come a much greater understanding in the material I will face through the upcoming years of my education.
