It has been a while since I wanted to ask this question, but couldn't find a right forum. My question might come across as trivial, but its important to me to find an answer to that.
Let me give you some background, I was very good in Mathematics until my face off with Calculus. In 11th/12th Std. (Yes,I am from India and probably an exception as far as Indian Engineering Students are concerned.) my Maths Prof. was pathetic, and I ended up bunking all Maths lectures. Hence my Applied Maths base, especially calculus is extremely weak. I am a Computer Science Student and want to catch up in reasonable time but I don't know where to begin as I am unsure about my proficiency in pre-calculus (Linear, Logarithmic, Exponential algebra) stuff as well.
So my first question is where should I begin or In order to understand concepts of calculus what do I need to get hold off first ? And Could anyone suggest a very good book - easy to understand especially for beginners (I have to face the realty that even though I am Master's Student I am really a beginner as far as Calculus is concerned).
Thanks in Advance.
