I need some help.
When I was in 8th grade, my father died, and in order for my family (my mother&my little sister) to at least have something to eat I had to start doing different jobs.
This resulted in me falling behind on my school subjects, especially maths.
You see, my math teacher is a really nice guy, he would always write me good grades, because he knew the situation I was in and wanted to help in any way possible.
This, however, backfired greatly.
My mom recently got a job which allows me to finally focus on my studies, but I fear it is too late. I have about 4 months to learn all there is in maths if I want to even have a chance of getting in a good uni.
Every bachelors I want to get in to requires me to pass the standardized maths test with flying colors.
This for me is an impossible task, since my math knowledge is pretty much non-existent past 8th grade. I have no idea what simple(supposedly, I have no idea really) things such as quadratic equations are.
But I want to god damnit.
So this is where I turn to you guys.
Any tips on how to go through with this would be appreciated.
Really, any book recommendation, any video tutorials, ANYTHING would be helpful.
I'm desperate, depressed because I really believe I'll be a failure in life, but god damnit I'm determined to do this, and I'll do whatever it takes for me to accomplish this pretty much impossible task. Even if I fail I won't give up, and I'll try again next year.
I've been watching khan academy videos for about two weeks, and so far they've been really helpful, however since I'm starting from the most basic of things(fundamental level), I don't think I'll be able to do things in time.
This is the test from last year : http://www.zamatura.eu/files/dzi/matematika/2015/matura-matematika-2015.pdf .
Use google translate to translate the page from Bulgarian to English(it fucks up the symbols, so you'll have to switch tabs.)
I need to get at least 79 points in it. Help.
