The Calculus 1A/1B Survival Guide contains extremely valuable information that can make the difference

between you passing or failing this course. Read it as if your life in this calculus course depends upon it.

Having completed Calculus 1A, your basic algebra skills should be pretty sharp. If you have any doubts

or known weaknesses, print out and study this Basic Algebra Guide. After you attempt the problems

in this handout, you can check your solutions here: Solutions.

The initial focus in Calculus 1B is to review inverse functions (inverse trigonometric functions and logarithmic

functions) and explore their derivatives. If you find logarithms confusing, you might find this

Introduction to Logarithms useful. A brief summary of the process of determining the

derivatives of inverse functions is provided here: Derivatives of Inverse Functions.

Students often ask, "What should I memorize?" Here is some guidance for those
