hi there everyone!
Just a quick question... I am currently selfstudying real analysis toward a degree here in south africa and was wondering if it is recommended to do Multivariable calculus simultaneously with the real analysis. Any thoughts  would it be too difficult or confusing or too much of a mixture of maths?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Multivariable calculus is needed to properly understand real analysis. Otherwise, you are guaranteed to get stuck if you dont have a very solid grasp of multivariable calculus. It'd be extremely useful to have some linear algebra background in there also. Without those twogenerally considered prereqs for even sitting in any real analysis classit'd be very difficult to properly grasp real analysis.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thank you RupaBose! This really helps  alot! Much appreciated :) I've completed calculus level one and a linear algebra course  so, going to do these two courses together... Thanks again :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Sure thing..I'd at least recommend trying to get through the first half of this course at least, before moving forward with real analysis...it'll definitely be a lot easier with at least multivariable differentiation/basic integration under your belt! At most, should only take a week to get through the whole of the MIT OCW for multivariable..Best of luck with all of that!
