I then did an ungrad diploma in engineering (where I had subjects in applied mathematics), and then I went on to get a graduation in telecom engineering (where there was some more applied maths)... but then I dropped out before the final year to become a writer. Been working as a writer for the past five years now, but recently I've been getting these hunger pangs for knowledge. And I realise how much I miss doing maths. I was pretty good at it before and I would like to get back to it. I still remember how to solve certain algebraic equations, and I remember a few formulae like [d/dx (x^n) = n x^(n-1)], and sin 30 = 0.5 and so on and so forth. As an engineering student I learned Laplace transforms and Z transforms, but now I don't remember their relation to calculus. Could I please get a book suggestion or a list of books and the order in which to attack them? I would like to start from the basics, as I have nearly forgotten most of the terms, like the other day I was scratching my head to remember what a 'factorial' meant, then a friend refreshed my memory and told me that n! = 1 x 2 x 3... x n. This very forum is so vast that I don't know where to start. I wouldn't mind online lessons or e-Books, but I'd prefer to purchase books that are structured well, so that reading and solving the problems from first chapter to last is like sitting in the lecture hall of a great teacher. I would like to refresh my school maths in a week, and in the next three months refresh my high school maths, and then move on to something more complex. My other area of interest is physics, so I'd like to do maths in that direction. Kindly help. Thanks.
