Hi,

In next semester, I am going to take vector calculus. Here is the course description: Vector fields, line and surface integrals, Green's Theorem, Stokes' Theorem, Divergence Theorem and advanced topics such as differential forms or applications to mechanics, fluid mechanics, or electromagnetism.

I've got a month before school starts and I want to go through "Calculus Deconstructed: A Second Course in First-Year Calculus" by Zbigniew Nitecki, but i also want to prepare for the vector calc class. I think in calc 2 and calc 3 I was kind of lost, and passed because of the curves..

This book has 6 chapters: Precalc, Sequences and their limits, continuity, differentiation, integrals, and power series. I think I can make it up to differentiation before school starts.

Can I study this book and count that as my preparation for vector calc? Am i better off just reviewing multivariable calculus?
