Thanks for story vomitcon!
I just skipped calculus ab and did stuff on my own. In fact, I “accidentally" covered bc material this summer
Basically bc adds in more advanced integration techniques and series + sequences.
I learned the advanced integration techniques this summer since that seems to be the most difficult. Luckily bc only tests integration by parts and partial fraction integrals. They will not throw in trig subs which are the hardest.
I think the hardest integrals are the advance trig ones like secx^3. You have to use some clever identities and usually IBP or U-Sub or both.
Other topics include logarithmic differentiation (easy), parametric differentiation (easy), and polar coordinates. Though these topics can probably be made hard Calc bc goes out of its way to give very basic problems.
Series and sequences is memorizing a lot I hear.
I'm a junior next year. You all will be fine if you seriously enrolled in a class. College math is harder! We all just got to keep in top of those derivatives and integrals (ie memorizing them). I literally put a paper in my shower displaying them. You'll be surprised how quickly you can derive and integrate if you stare at term every morning
