Okay, this will seem like an extremely stupid question but here it goes: Can you learn mathematical analysis if you have a very limited knowledge of mathematics? In my high school we had only one type of mathematics, while other students had three types including analysis itself. Now at the university I go to, the material is adjusted to those students who had three types of mathematics and the professors are explaining very little because they assume we all know that. What I'm trying to ask is, can I manage to learn all that in order to pass analysis this year?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.

  • $\begingroup$ Do not worry. just you have to study more. mathematical analysis is not complicated. it will be easy and easier if you practice and practice. every point that you didnot understand, you can easily find answer in net.

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you for the encouragement. But when i say limited knowledge i mean that i don't know how to solve limits, integrals, series etc. I'm very worried that i will drop out because of analysis. $\endgroup$ – Stefan Nov 11 '15 at 19:53
  • $\begingroup$ I donot know your academic system, cannot you delet it and choose next semester? $\endgroup$ – R.N Nov 11 '15 at 19:55
