to some extent, yes.

it may be the case that your B wasn't the result of your efforts, but rather the fear your math teacher has of losing his job.

study and solve problems?

do you read your book? does your math teacher show you examples? do you do homework?

linear algebra has plenty of neat applications, but i guess you would need to learn LINEAR ALGEBRA first.

doesn't your book already have those?
