I am good at mathematics, and have some basic knowledge of algebra but I live in the ass-end of nowhere (Greece) and I do not have access to books that I may learn from. I know that you will tell me: "lol, search the web and you will find tons of stuff", but I would just like to know what steps I should take to begin studying maths to a great extent. What I mean is: Should I start off by learning what the calculus is and how it works and then move on to logarithms and abstract algebra (just examples), all I need is a list of subjects to study, and in the right order so as to acquire the basic knowledge to move on to the next concept.

Thank you for answering so swiftly.
I am in the 4th grade of high school (proti likeiou), and up till now maths has been a breeze for me, as we had a great teacher. This year however, she left and this idiot teacher took her place and I think that I am beginning to forget the little I already knew.

If there are any websites on algebra and mathematics that you or anyone else recommends, please tell me.

You may find this helpfull for algebra and other topics too. You just have to hunt through it to find what suits you.

I recently purchased a book called Forgotten Algebra. I have Super review algebra, Schaum's and a few others and none of them are as good as Forgotten algebra. At least for my learning needs. Its one of the better books I've read for algebra that starts at the beginning and goes right on through to complicated subjects.

It seems to be written for anyones style of learning. Dry rules and proofs, real world worked out problems, geometric proofs so that you can see why it works and a lot of review questions and tests. All around good book if you can get it.
