<p>guys am i prepared to take on math 1b if i have only studied up to chapter 5.5 on the james stewart's early transcendentals book? i'm worried</p>

<p>is that Calculus 2? in my experience Calc 2 is a lot harder than calc 1. calc 1 was a joke. Maybe it was because of the teacher.
It all depends on the teacher. still you will do fine if you're good in calc 1.
good luck</p>
