    You must mean when alternating series converge.

    So for alternating series, is that when the function converges conditionally or absolutely? And how do you know?

    you first check for absolute convergence if it is not absolutely convergent you the use leibnitz rule for alternating series and see if it converges conditionally

    Oh...i see...that makes sense. Thanks! Also, when using the Direct Comparison Test, can you only use it when it involves geometric series?

    no - but if you think it will converge you must compare it to a larger function that you know converges

    the limit comparison test is easier to use
