Interested in reviewing calculus over the summer

I'm a university student who took calculus several years ago while I was still in high school. It's been a while since I've done a lot of calculus but now it's starting to show up in some of my major's classes. I'd really like to spend some time reviewing all of the calculus concepts I learned. I suppose that what I'm really looking to do is work problems throughout the summer. I don't think I've completely forgotten the concepts, but rather I just haven't seen them in a while and want to make sure that I can still do them.

Would someone be able to help me? I would really appreciate it! If someone would be willing to assign me problem sets, that would be great!

Thanks for the links! Actually, I think I'm just looking for someone to assign problem sets to me periodicially throughout the summer, if that makes sense.

Re: Interested in reviewing calculus over the summer

Does it have to be from a human? [color=#BF0000]greg1313[/color] referenced the link below on the resource page. IMHO it is very helpful.

https://www.math.ucdavis.edu/~kouba/ProblemsList.html

You can follow this 3 step strategy.

1) Try the problem without clicking on the solution

2) When you're done click on the solution. If you got it right, try the next problem, back to step 1). If you made a mistake try to understand their solution

3) If you can't understand their solution post your questions here at MMF. Show your work and tell us where the problem came from so we can look it up in order to help you better, since the link is an online resource, looking it up will be easy.

Re: Interested in reviewing calculus over the summer

I guess I preferred having someone else because that way they could guide me on different topics. And I suppose having someone else come up with problem sets means that
  • you can't pick and choose which problems you want to do and[/*:m:3f7dtxu2]
  • you can't skip ahead through the solutions[/*:m:3f7dtxu2]
