Starting Calculus 2 this Spring

  1. Nov 9, 2010 #1
    Hi all! I'm starting Calculus 2 this Spring at my college and I was wondering what to look out for. Any specific series or problems that might be a headache? What do you suggest I prepare "better" for? Thanks for your time!

    well the most annoying thing i found while doing calc 2 in high school senior year was the applications of integrals with probability. other than that it wasn't so bad if you practice a lot. good luck in your class!

    review the definition of a derivative, and of continuity, so you have a chance of understanding the fundamental theorem of calculus. Review plane geometry and similarity so you can set up area and volume problems. of course algebra is crucial.
