    Is there such a thing? If so let me know.

    My calc III teacher sucked so all these kids in my class started talking about this video on youtube about an MIT professor teaching calculus. They said it was amazing and that you would understand everything after watching him. I'd try that

    If you want to teach yourself calculus, this (http://www.understandingcalculus.com/) can be helpful because it explains the concepts of calculus in an easy to understand manner.

    I suggest that you stay away from multivariable calculus. Any arguments in support of taking m.v. calc could be used to justify teaching yourself all sorts of advanced courses, which is not advised.

    I would study the following topics/ideas, whether in YouTube videos, books, wb resources, etc:
    1) techniques for evaluating limits when direct substitution fails (avoid the delta-epsilon limit)
    2) difference quotient/definition of the derivative
    3) basic derivatives. These are on the inside cover of most calc books.
    4) the CALCULUS definition of the (natural) logarithm.
    5) fundamental theorem of calculus (of course!)

    calculus is really not that bad. It gets a bad rep because it's heavy on algebra and courses usually move at a steady pace. Good luck!
