I had a test in calculus and I passed but with a really bad grade, mostly because I didn't know all the ways of calculating a limit.

Can I ask : What are all the ways of calculating a limit of a function or a series?

  • $\begingroup$ @robjohn But generally, not on certain function or series. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @NightRa: I am not sure exactly what you are trying to say. The FAQ says what meta should be used for. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @robjohn His question is whether it's ok to ask a question to list all the methods which one can use to solve limit problems. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ If I saw such a question posted on the main site, I'd probably vote to close it as "too broad". I'd also suggest the author have a look through whatever textbook is handy, where I'd expect may examples to be done, and I'd also suggest the author make an appointment to see the lecturer, who is in the best position to be helpful. $\endgroup$ Sep 12 '13 at 12:48

This is a valid question, but since it is a rather open-ended question, it should be tagged or as well as . It should probably also be made Community Wiki.
