First dont fear or hate math that is the main problem with math students. Try to solve the examples on your own without reading them from book. If you are not able to do it then only take help from someone who is good at it. DONT FEAR math. I have lost important 5 marks in crucial exam jst because i was worried whether i will be able to score or not. ALL the BEST

Math is my weakest subject. When I was in school, I struggled to pass all my Math subjects. One of the things that helped me was getting a tutor. Sometimes we cannot follow the lessons in class but with individual attention, you might be surprised how quickly you can understand things. Furthermore, Math is a skill. I was never the studious type, but to do well in my Math classes, I have to dedicate plenty of time doing all the exercises and practice tests that I can. I hope these suggestions can help you. Good luck and may the numbers become easy for you.

Hey dont fear math. I think one need to practice a lot and not fear math. Even i had this fear and because of this i loose 5 imp points when i needed them most but in fact it was so simple that any dumb guy would have done it. So dont fear , take help from some one who is good at it. And dont try to read the problems try to solve them once you will get it then u will never forget it.ALL THE BEST!

like many have said, practise is perfect. same goes for maths. i'm not sure which level maths you are talking about but in general, you could start off my practising sums that you might know. this is so that when you get them correct, your morale and confidence goes up too and you start wanting to try out the tougher ones. don't start on the hard ones or those tht you don't know immediately. it's will only discourage you since you don't know. if you practise those that you know and slowly start on the tougher ones, you will find new ways to solve the sum and you may apply the methods that you know already. this will slowly but surely help you. you could also buy books that have answers with methods given at the back so that when you don't know questions, you can check it for reference. best of luck. it took me long but now i do like maths.

Hi sourav i am also weak in maths. But nowadays i am improving. Only thing i can say is it needs practice. Whatever you study in the class you have to practice at home. Just concentrate on some basic formulas thats imp. It helps you a lot. Can i ask you what your studying. Are you in engineering. Or b.sc. Or b.Com. You can mention it in your discussion so it can gives you more responses.

It's good that you practice math daily it at least shows you genuinely want to better at math. It might be in the way you aproach studying for math. For example when you study is the tv going or is music flaring. If it is i strongly suggest you try working without these distractions. Secondly there is something on this planet were jus not good at. I happen to be good at math but i absolutly suck at chemistry. So when it came to this course, not only did i study alot, but i got a tutor. Don't be afraid to ask for help because not everyone gets everything. In my case my tutor's sister needed help with English and he was no help to her so i stepped in; thats just another example of how everybody needs to ask for help at some point.
