If you are taking your first college mathematics course, or if your previous attempts have been less than glowing successes, then this part of the guide was designed especially for you. If you have already become a successful college mathematics student, then please do not take offense at the material which I have included in this part of the guide. Rather than reading everything here, just browse through and look for information which seems relevant to your situation. If on the other hand this is your first college mathematics course, or else you do not yet feel like a successful mathematics student, then I encourage you to read on carefully.
