This frantic pace is also a reason why you should seriously consider how well you are prepared prior to taking a college course (in any subject). In one of my previous blog posts ("All I need is a C"), I mention how important it is for a student to take their education seriously. If you barely passed the prerequisite course, then you have likely set yourself up for failure in your upcoming course. All too often I have seen students enter into a math course having passed the prerequisite course by a slim margin (or having passed too many years ago to remember anything of note). The vast majority of these students end up failing over-and-over again. It's a terrible pattern to get caught up in and causes many students to give up on college. A simple fix to this is to retake the prerequisite course (or, if that is impossible, audit the prerequisite course) to gain a stronger understanding of the base material. You may think this will waste a semester, but I can guarantee that not doing this will waste years.
In a twisted way, this overwhelming chunk of topics dumped upon you in such a short period of time reinforces a necessary trait for college success - personal responsibility. In the end, it is completely your responsibility to learn the material to a level of mastery that is sufficient to be considered capable with the subject.
My Style: First and foremost, if you have enrolled in a 5-unit math course (which is nearly half of a full course load at the college level), you must realize that you will be spending 5 hours per week in class and at least 10 hours per week outside of class studying the material. "Studying" means doing homework, watching review videos, discussing topics with your classmates, and reading the textbook to better understand the core material. If you cannot handle the time commitment, then do not sign up for a college math course -PERIOD. I understand that you have personal commitments (work, family, other classes, etc.), but you have made the choice to improve your education and make yourself more marketable (whatever that means). This requires sacrifice.
In algebra courses, I tend to save a bit of time in class by assigning lecture videos for the easier material (or review material). In calculus courses, I tend to have videos for all the "gory" proofs so that time can be saved in class. In all my courses, I do very little review (the prerequisite is there for a reason). While I tend to remind you of certain things you have learned from your prerequisite math courses, it is your personal responsibility to review that material on your own.
