Hello all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm a guy who's bad at maths. I intended to study something easy - like law, history and the like. But I made a last second decision and chose to study something more useful - applied maths in my case. What I'd like to know, is what math subjects should I improve at (if I don't want to get kicked out)? I've spent last two months studying math individually 4-8 hours a day, now I'm rather good at the basics, I've even mastered basic trigonometry and logarithms. I understand the concepts of calculus well. But when I open one of those math books that universities issue, I go like "huh?". I can hardly understand a thing, it's all on a whole new level. I'd like to hear some tips on what should I improve in order to handle math at university level (any help is welcome).
