Hey, Bologo. The best way to study mathematics is to devote a ton of time to it. Math is just one of those subjects! I would start by reading the textbook to supplement what you learn in class. It's actually better to read the textbook BEFORE he does the topic in class so you have a better understanding of it. You need to try to understand the concepts first, then read over the example problems to get a general idea of how to do the problems. Next... Practice Practice Practice! You should probably practice dozens of problems until you get the hang of it. Seek help on anything you are unsure about during this phase because that is where the crucial learning occurs. Make sure you ask your professor about anything you have trouble with and try to work on it. Now, this is the step that most people fuck up on. In studying in the previous step, many people get caught with the disease "I studied many problems and still failed." You have to now go back before your quiz / exam, and practice the test taking conditions. That is, pick a few problems you haven't tried and organize them into a test that you think the profossor will give. Then, eliminate all distractions and don't allow yourself to use the book or any help and do the problems. That is the best way to gauge how much you know in any subject. But this is especially efficient in math since it is an objective course. Hope this helps... If your wondering, I'm a sophomore Civil Engineering student (go me!) so I've had my shares of ups and downs with math (vector calculus kicked my ass!). Keep working at it!
