Mathematics is a subject that is difficult to learn over a short period of time. If you are doing a maths course and think you can pass by studying two weeks before the exam you are most probably on the road to failure. Only very few people can manage learning shortly before an exam.
The secret to succeeding in maths is this: work a little at it every day. It is that simple. If you work 15 minutes a day, every day, you'll already be on a more successful trip towards the exam than somebody who studies two hours once a week and then does nothing for the rest of the week.
The repetitive process and getting yourself to encounter the language and symbols every day will greatly help you understand it!
Math is about thinking and understanding. Once you are used to it, it can be a lot of fun!
Is it not like this with most things in life?
