So far I've been working elementary math problems where the main focus is on creative ideas. I want to up my game but I find it hard to get past the first few chapters of more advanced books because they seem so daunting. For example, I wanted to get a foundation for complex analysis and learn to tackle some hard problems, so I purchased Complex Numbers from A to Z. But immediately I was bombarded by a ton of formulas and very dense notation. It was hard to see through to the underlying concepts with all the rigor and formality.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I would love to major in math in college. How can I get over this hump and be able to successfully work through higher level math textbooks? All tips are appreciated.
