  1. Has anyone read this? I was thinking about buying it, but I was reading the reviews and some reviews say it is impossible to understand without a lot of background in mathematics and the other reviews say anyone can read it and understand it. I don't know which to believe. I definitely want to read it if I can though. I only have a little background in calculus and won't be taking my first course until this coming school year. Any opinions?
  2. Thanks for the advice. I appreciate it.
  3. Won't get into medical school or won't get into an ivy league school? I don't really have any desire to get into an ivy league school. I'm not going to kill myself attempting to get into one either. If I have the opportunity however, I would still apply. If I wasn't ambitious I wouldn't be thinking about medical school at all. I'm more concerned with getting into college at the moment more than anything.
  4. I'm ranked 11/183 in my class, which isn't anything extraordinary. I definitely won't be getting into any ivy league schools. I only scored 1240 (590 on math 650 on verbal) on my SATs so nothing special there either. I tend to do much better in school than I do on standardized tests however. So I don't think I'm necessarily ruled out for medical school if I put in the effort. I'm not someone who will study until they go blind though.
  5. Actually, I'm going to be a senior in high school this year. I'll be applying to schools soon. I've been set on biochemistry for a while. I was also possibly planning on applying to medical school and I figured a biochemistry major would be good preparation if I did decide to apply and I wouldn't be stuck with a useless major on the off chance that I did not get into medical school. Do you have a life or are you studying all the time? Heh.
  6. I was wondering if anyone could tell me the main differences between a biochemistry major vs a chemistry major in terms of difficulty as well as courses taken. I realize biochemistry focuses more on the biology aspect, but does this mean the mathematical concepts of chemistry are not as significant or is biochemistry the same as a chemistry major with added emphasis on biology? thanks
  7. Well, I'm only in precalculus and we haven't gone over limits. Generically speaking, what do I want to do if I encounter any problem that asks me to make the segmented function continuous?
  8. Could anyone explain to me how you do this. It says to complete the segmented function so that it is continuous. y={ (x^2-11)/(x+(sqrt11)) ---- if x = ----- Thanks
  9. Well then, I guess I did find an error this time. Thanks for the help.
  10. It says determine any horizontal, vertical or slant asymptotes. I think it may be the slant asymptote. My bad.... I figure I should ask my other question on this post as well. This problem is from a Cliff's Book The function (2x-5)/(x^2-4x-5) has a horizontal asymptote of y=2. This function seems like it violates the rules........When I worked it out I got that y=0 because the the numerator has a smaller power than the denominator?
  11. Well, then my wonderful textbook(sarcasm) has an error in it....It says the answer is y=3/2*x.
  12. The function y= (3x^3-2x+1)/(2x^2) has me confused. I am trying to figure out why this function has a horizontal asymptote when the degree of the numerator is larger than the denominator, which I thought was supposed to mean it has no horizontal asymptote? Thanks
  13. I was possibly thinking about teaching myself calculus and I was wondering what book(s) I could buy that are user friendly and have good explanations. I'm not a math whiz and I'm currently taking analytical geometry, but I want to get ahead before next year. I looked on amazon.com and almost every calc book on there has horrible reviews. So I was wondering what everyone on here thought. Thanks
  14. I was wondering if someone could explain to me the easiest method for determining if two functions are inverses of eachother? Thanks
  15. Man, I asked practically the same question ages ago....I didn't really get a good response.....I, as of yet, have not bought a microscope either.
