    What do you mean by "college level calculus?" In my university Calculus class, it was almost identical to the calculus class I took in high school. After that, I took a class in differential equations which is also included in calculus. The course is generally easy. There is not much that you need to comprehend. I suggest that you actually take an interest in the material and question everything. Ask why the derivative of e^x is e^x. Try to formulate a proof. If you cannot, look up proofs on the INTERNET and try to get an understanding of what is ultimately being said. Thanks for asking!

    I had honors calculus in high school. I have also taken Calc at Modesto Junior College, University of Pennsylvania, Delta College, and San Jose State.

    My high school class was the most demanding, and had the best instructor: Garland Land.

    The class at the University of Pennsylvania (Ivy League, uh-hum) was the easiest, but also had a good instructor.

    The SJSU course I had to drop- so I could catch up with my 21-unit course load (I never received my text books until the 5th week of class my 1st semester, and the 4th week my second semester- thanks, NROTC!) The instructor I had there was terrible.

    The MJC courses and the Delta courses were very good. The last math class was taught by the most arrogant prof I have ever studied under (excepting a tenured UPenn prof who received his post in trade for his big-tobacco family money). The MJC calc teacher uses examples from previous editions of the text in his teaching. This means he has memorized a few examples, and just regurgitates them onto the chalk board. When you have a question, he never seems to be capable of reaching into your understanding and fill in the needed information. That is because he does not care.

    Mr. Land in high school- he cared very much. His instruction always showed it.

    I really enjoyed all my math classes.  I completed several calculus classes as well as differential equations and numerical analysis. Don't get me wrong, there were some challenging times, but the concepts were generally easily understood. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the classes.  Every once in a while I will crack open my old textbooks to read or do some problems.  Math is fun.

    I was a math major.  So, I took nine or so calculus classes in college, and many other math classes that had calculus as a per-requisite.  I think it was the upper division Analysis course, (the eight calculus course) when it finally made beautiful sense to me.  Calculus is a thing of great beauty, but that beauty is not easy to explain to others, or to learn.
