In theory intro chem should have me pretty good to go for gen 1. Calc I'm pretty sure I'm going to have my rear end kicked

Nah don't freak out, calc 1 is honestly pretty cool and useful

is this thing working

I'm doing calc 2 online through a community college and just spent the entire weekend and most of the past week studying my rear end off and I just got uber-stressed and then bombed my first exam.

Integrals are the worst of the worst parts of math for me - no theory, just memorization of identities and trying to notice little things in order to use some memorized trick to solve them. Also lots of algebra.

The only reason I even got a couple problems right (I think) is from watching blackpenredpen on youtube, who is infinitely better than my instructor. I'd drop it and leave it for the future (and hopefully less stressful times) but I passed the refund date after only two class lessons and three homework assignments.

Seconding Khan Academy. Also LibreTexts.

And remember, chemistry is cool and good.

Khan academy is good. The online derivative calculator can be useful to check your answers. https://www.derivative-calculator.net/ or https://www.integral-calculator.com/ for integrals.

Also going to recommend Pauls Online Math Notes. https://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/ He goes all the way up to Differential Equations. The cheat sheets can be nice for future classes.

I remember Calc 1 not being horrible but I thought the teacher was really good. I got an A but I had to work my rear end off for it.

Good luck with Calc 2. A lot of people end up taking it twice. I can't imagine taking it during the summer. They curved the poo poo out of my class in a normal semester.

I think Cal II was the hardest calculus class I've taken. That required the most puzzle solving to figure out which method you need to use where you have to pick whether to rotate around the x or y axis.

I had to take Calc II three times, that class can suck my dick. Paul's online math notes and khanacademy are super useful tho
