## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hey all. I'm curious about something. I've ordered some books and dvds on Algebra 1, 2, and Advanced Algebra (college) and they should be in relatively soon. How much could I possibly learn in 3 solid months of studying two or three hours a day? Now I honestly don't know how much material will be present because in highschool we spent a full year taking on one subject at a time, so I'm curious if anyone has thoughts on how much could be learned.

I'm now a senior in college majoring in history before going to law school, but I just want to learn math because i've always wanted to dive into physics and deeper into chemistry. In highschool I basically ruined myself by rarely doing homework because I was able to get by with the daily lectures, so much so that I was able to get college credit for trig my sr. year of highschool which allowed me to skip all college maths. I'll admit that I have this fear or lack of confidence regarding math and that's one reason I don't want to jump directly into a college algebra class because I want my gpa flawless. I think I have some good materials to learn on my own, but i'm also sure i'll get confused on certain stuff, but luckily I can search around here to find answers if and when that happens.

Why do I ask about 3 months specifically? Because it's summer and I have nothing else to do. Unfortunately, when the semester starts back up I'll be flooded with school assignments all of which will take away a great deal of time to study math, but oh well. I'm hoping I can put a nice dent in algebra and one day,*gulp* learn some calculus.

Anyways, thoughts?
