I suck at math. lols :(

Do you guys recommend a certain book, method, tutor, whatevers, to be able to learn college math. I'm talking pre-algebra/algebra, and whatever else the basic math classes request.

Well, for over the summer maybe get a SAT study book for Math? Or ACT....

I think trying to teach yourself math is kind of suicidal though. I always relied on the teachers to explain what the book was saying. (I just never understood the language they used in those things.)

The important part about math is to try and go through the problems as the teacher does them, or even before if possible. It's mainly about practice, for me at least.

You can use the sheet to do problems but try not to

Not at the moment. I want to get ready for when it starts. Everyone tells me it's hard as fuck, especially if you failed the assessments like I did.

Good points.

Yeah, teaching yourself math must be hard as hell. Maybe I can get one of those books and ask a tutor to go over it with me. Or maybe just ask them to teach me whats coming up.
