Once again, coming back

What's up?

For each day, whenever I have free time, I only get like few pages of math done EACH WEEK (that's right - each week, only few pages)! The question is, am I being a bit lazy on the math studies? Should I give more effort to get more done?

Welcome back!

On the math, that all depends. A few pages can be a lot of work, if the math is hard enough. Are you happy with the rate you're learning, or is that too slow? And what kinds of math are you trying to learn?

Re: Once again, coming back

Good to see you again.

My current math book is just a simple overview (logarithms, etc. easy problems).

Re: Once again, coming back

Welcome back.

When going over material that is mostly review, I find it more helpful to go to the problem section and work through problems until I find one that I'm not sure how to do. If I can't figure it out after a little while, I go back and read until I find something helpful. Rinse and repeat.

Thanks for the suggestion. I will try that everyday on my math studies.
