The exam so far this week was much harder than I thought. Which means that I'm not studying enough and this new section with a calculator should be easier. I've spent all morning with my new tutor and I feel a lot better going into this part of the exam. I will now be studying with my one on one tutor for the rest of the semester.

Last week we went over how to find the area of a revolving object around the x-axis. This seems easy enough to grasp visually, however plugging it in correctly and doing all the individual steps correctly is a different story. I have a lot of practicing to do in order to get where I want to be for next week's test. We've been told that the test is all on integration so it will be nice to know what area to study in more detail instead of a broad, daunting huge amount to study. I"ll need to be in the math lab on campus all of Saturday to study with my professor to be sure I have a firm grasp on the material. Over the weekend I found this link to help me grasp what's going on as well: http://www.cliffsnotes.com/study_guide/Volumes-of-Solids-of-Revolution.topicArticleId-39909,articleId-39907.html

Week nine means time for another exam. I feel more prepared for this one than the last because I've been doing the homework. That doesn't mean it's going to be smooth sailing though because I know the questions on the test will represent the most difficult problems from our homework.

As week eight begins I now seem to have my rythim down with my time scheduling for the homework. I now spend two hours before every class doing the homework that is due that afternoon, as long as I keep that up and keep going in on Saturdays to be sure I understand the week's sections.

Week seven is all about consistency, being consistent in going to the math tutor lab to do all my homework. This needs to happen every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Even if I see and comprehend what's going on in class I need to do all the homework to be ready for any homework quizzes.

Week four is a short one because of the holiday weekend. Normally I'd be happy but we have an exam next week and I could use the practice. There also won't be tutoring over the weekend because the school will be closed. I'll be searching the Internet to find links to sites and videos to help my cyber tutoring.
