Hi Professor Raffi. I am a student self studying for the AP Calculus AB exam in May 2016, and I just wanted to thank you for your great videos. They really explain the concepts well and give me confidence to study for this exam in the comfort of my home.

I was wondering if you have any advice as to how I could best study for AP Calc. I am hoping to get through the AB course really soon (I have graduated from high school and am just taking this course to prepare for university level calculus). I do have a lot of time on my hands so I am only focusing on AP Calc. Do you think it is a good idea to progress to AP Calculus BC if I manage to complete the AB course in the next month? Thanks very much.

Hi professor Raffi. I don't know how you derived 2x^2 from X^2 - X^2, i just want to know if it a simple mistake or am tripping.

second. last lecture you obliviously mentioned infinitesimal, am just wondering if you can be more elaborate for me, the definition of infinitesimals and hyper real numbers? My professor seems to care so much about it but i don't get it. Despite the minor request great lecture, i never knew math can be so explicitly explain thanks.
