You remember this stuff from class, but don’t remember exactly how it works. A couple examples to jog your memory are all you need to get back on track.

This is exactly why we created The Mathematics Survival Kit

The Mathematics Survival Kit - Maple Edition is the perfect companion for college & high school math students.
