Hi all! I hope you're having a great summer!

I'm currently a college senior, and am working hard to prepare for the Great Beyond, so to speak. I've been working through the Plug-Ins textbook and enjoying it / learning a lot, though I find I struggle most with the math. I note that Will has taken care to mention, e.g., "Make sure you understand how the difference equation relates to the diagram before you continue" but, frankly, I don't. I'm relatively confident with audio concepts and with programming, but fall short in math.

What math learning would you recommend for me to pursue in my remaining time? I have taken Calculus - however, that was 10 years ago, and I remember very little. A friend recommended Linear Algebra - would you agree? Any thoughts and advice would be appreciated.

EDIT: After stumbling through parts of chapters 4-5, I took some time to revisit elements of Chapter 1, and everything "clicked." I would still love to hear what math skills people find most useful for DSP work, but for anyone else struggling with the mathematical nomenclature, I'd encourage you to review the earlier chapters - it was super helpful for me!

Best wishes,
