Hi Micromeds, I hope you like the NO BS guide to MATH & PHYS. It's clear you have the right attitude—the best way to learn math is by solving lots of practice problems.

Sometime in January I'll be releasing the NO BS guide to LA, so if you like the first book you should check out the sequel. Extended preview for anyone interested: https://minireference.com/static/excerpts/noBSguide2LA_preview.pdf

BTW, for fellow Canadians, there's a crazy rebate on the MATH & PHYS book on amazon.ca today:

Hi great story, how do you manage a fulltime job and a parttime physics degree? Do you have any children? Here in the Netherlands there are no partime physics studies. Where do you study? I’m getting smooth at algebra right now using
No bullshit guide to math and physics: https://www.amazon.com/No-bullshit-guide-math-physics/dp/0992001005 hard to follow at times since Savov not always explains very much. Overal a good book.

You're welcome! I love helping people and want to teach in the future, so "thanks!" is probably my #1 favorite thing!

One thing I didn't mention in the above post that I'm starting to realize as I go through more higher level Math classes (Linear Algebra this semester) -- find MULTIPLE explanations for a concept and find MANY worked out, annotated problems.

This is coming up because I'm having a lot of difficulty with Linear Algebra. The calculations are simple (it's basically just solving systems of equations from pre-Calc), but understanding what everything means is a whole different story.

I spoke with some of the instructors in my colleges math department this semester and they all agreed on those two points. My Linear Instructor isn't bad, he just doesn't teach in a style I learn well in. Our textbook is alright, but doesn't have many examples worked out (maybe 3-5 per section, but each one is so fundamentally different nothing it's hard to understand what's being illustrated and why).

The Shaum's Outline series came highly recommended. The head of the department specifically cited Shaum's Linear Algebra for the reason she passed linear (she could never attend class and was teaching herself out of the textbook at the time, so the more help the better). While I can't comment on the Calculus version, I'm loving what I've seen so far in the Linear version. So if you ever need to see more problems worked out and Paul's math notes isn't doing it for you, try getting a Shaum's book. They're pretty inexpensive at around $10-20 on Amazon -- I picked up a used copy for $8.

I also picked up the No Bullshit Guide to Linear Algebra after a tutor friend recommended it. The author has a Calculus/Physics integrated version. It's pricy, but if you're having a difficult time understanding your Calculus book or just need a legitimately no-bullshit explanation of a concept, it's a great option. Again, I haven't seen the Math/Physics version, but if it's anything like the Linear one it'd be mad helpful.

Lastly, if you still need more examples or explanations, the book my college is using for Calculus is available here on reddit.

First, to get a sense as to the world of math and what it encompasses, and what different sub-subjects are about, watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OmJ-4B-mS-Y

Ok, now that's out of the way -- I'd recommend doing some grunt work, and have a basic working knowledge of algebra + calculus. My wife found this book useful to do just that after having been out of university for a while: https://www.amazon.com/No-bullshit-guide-math-physics/dp/0992001005

At this point, you can tackle most subjects brought up from first video without issue -- just find a good introductory book! One that I recommend that is more on computer science end of things is a discrete math
book.

Hello again! I have a question about the young and fredman physics textbook. Which version should I purchase and should I also purchase the solutions manual? Also would that textbook be better than say this https://www.amazon.com/No-bullshit-guide-math-physics/dp/0992001005/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1466240189&sr=8-3&keywords=physics
Thank you for all your help so far (:

Hey, I have found a nice text book called no bullshit guide with math and physics.

https://www.amazon.ca/No-bullshit-guide-math-physics/dp/0992001005
No bullshit guide to math and physics: Ivan Savov ... - Amazon.ca

So far it's the best I've ever read. The author made another one only for linear algebra as well.
