No problem, always happy to help whenever I can.
I've heard mixed reactions from different people concerning how Stewart's book(s) present Calculus. When I asked one of my professors about previous alternatives to our book, he noted that the course used his textbook before switching to our current (Jon Rogawski: ) and that in his opinion Stewart's problems were more difficult than Rogawski's, which might have caused a bit of a hurdle in the process of first learning the content.
Having an additional textbook to alternate to is good in case your textbook happens to present a concept fairly weak, but it's really more so you can have more problems to solve and generate a level of comfort with the content.

Because let's face it; books are so expensive the amazon link might not even be worth looking for


You might also want to look at "Calculus For Dummies" main book by Mark Ryan which actually explains the content through intuition similarly to Khan Academy's method. In this way, you'd have a pdf to read over if you have the time while on the go.

The main idea is to ensure that you have a strong intuition behind what the content that you can think about before going to the exam. The primary problem in my opinion with learning mathematics and sciences is professors don't go into explaining to the students ways to actually think through formulas and the meaning of terminology, and instead simply write it out for them in the same way their textbooks would've done in the first place. The reason why I support Khan Academy to an extent is Salman Khan recognizes the need to present intuition before approaching any sort of problem solving, or else your understanding will simply rely on how good your pure memory is.

The problem you have isn't uncommon; I always hear of classmates doing the necessary homework and still finding that they don't have the flexible understanding necessary to take on crushing exams, so whenever I go to a studying session I usually try to drop some of these links around and they seem to help those that actually check them out. I hope these links help you out as well and don't simply waste your time or overwhelm you in the process.

Not a problem.
For the issue of locking up, the better way to approaching that is maintaining a daily regiment of numerous problems to solve beyond just the homework, so that you solidify a comfort with the subject matter in understanding the numerous ways to approach a problem.

On top of solving problems from the book, you might want to try a supplement, like
www.amazon.com/Calculus-Practice-Problems-Dummies-Online/dp/111849671X
Or simply go here; thepiratebay.se/torrent/10880311/Calculus-_1_001_Practice_Problems_For_Dummies_[PDF]_[StormRG]
This is a large collection of problems that basically follows the idea of doing a bunch of problems to attain a core comfort in handling any other problem in the subject. It was written by a youtuber named patrickjmt whose built a bit of a reputation for concise yet informative youtube videos on the subject. Not really sure why he does the whole "nerd" image with the taped-thick-rimmed glasses, but I guess that's to have an image that matches
www.youtube.com/user/patrickJMT
The only problem is the book cuts before Series/Sequences it seems, which was part of my Calc 2 course work (and where I needed problem solving the most, personally)

You might also want to look at Khan Academy; If you can get used to the voice and Khan's tendency to repeat things as he writes them out several times, you'll find that a good part of the videos for some subjects is that he doesn't just write out formulas for models; he constructs them based on principle ideas and observations, so you understand what you're looking at more than just a set of variables to memorize. It's a pretty strong supplement pre-lecture, post-lecture, or even just covering the material wholesome.

Also, using an account within the site is a good way to keep track of your progress within the videos, as well as understanding what other videos you might want to look at to cover a better understanding of the work.

What textbook do you use for the courses you struggle with?

Hmm it depends. Being good at logic is certainly a plus, but there is a bunch of maths you gotta get through. It's not really traditional maths though, more focused on so-called "discreet maths" that are more about mathematical logic than actual maths equations. Google "graph theory" it's pretty interesting.

A major switch might require you to take those same classes as electives, or at the very least take Calc 2. But I have no place to speak as I don't know your university's system.

Do you feel your struggle has to do with the presentation of the content (i.e. a lacking professor), a troublesome source material (a lacking textbook), or simply a lack of engaging problems to harden understanding and prepare for exams, for either courses?
#31 - urghseventysix (03/22/2015) [-]
Really my biggest issue is jumping from being taught in the classes, understanding the problems, and then see what looks like a radically different form of what was covered on the exams.

I've gotten a tutor as well since they're offered for free, but that didn't really help, as I still had someone working through them with me. I've tried independently as well, but seeing a blank problem with a different form on the exams somehow cause me to either lock up or screw up along the way.

Thanks for listening to me bullshit by the way, I really appreciate it. With my current courses, I've actually covered a whole lot of what a CS major requires anyway as well.

To me, computer science is both fun and challenging. I'm pretty intelligent and good at school, and on top of that I really enjoy all kinds of computer work really, but it's certainly not an easy place, especially if you aren't really good at (understanding or doing) complex maths. Personally I'd say you should give it a try, but on the other hand it's a waste of time and money if you really can't go through with it...
