I want read the first 3 or 4 chapters of Abbott's Understanding Analysis in preparation for taking a course Real Analysis. The course I'm going to take is based off of Baby Rudin, the premier and heavily rigorous text on the subject used by most institutions, so I want to read this text because it is slightly easier. The prerequisites are a good working knowledge of mathematical proof.

That brings back memories.
I remember all that like it was yesterday.
I took that course back in 1981.
I'm skimming through that whole book.
I miss school. I still remember my professors teaching us that stuff.
I can't believe that was 38 years ago.

I managed to pass all the Calculus subjects with great difficulty. I don't want to know about math anymore tbh.

Ya. I'm almost done now. I got a year left.

What were you studying at that time?

My school has an introduction to Analysis concepts for all math majors, but you can take Real Analysis as a follow up if you choose.
I really enjoyed what I've seen from Analysis, so I'm pretty set on taking it. I was close to chickening out an taking the easier version at my school called "advanced calculus", but I decided not to be a bitch lol

It gets more interesting after those. I was bored to death by Calc1 - 4 because you never justified your arguments. Just a bunch of calculation. I like proof much more.
