This page consists of 100 (actually 101) infinite series practice problems based on a video from one of our favorite instructors. We have laid out each practice problem and included the video clip containing each solution.
Here is the list of practice problems. We recommend that you download this pdf before starting.
Make sure you support the guy that did this video. He put a LOT of work into, not just doing the video, but also preparing the problems and making sure his solutions were correct. He did a GREAT job. So go to YouTube and like this video and follow him. He is one of our favorite instructors. (By the way, we are not receiving any compensation from him. We just think his videos will help you.)
We have another page with 100 calculus 2 practice problems that also contains some infinite series problems by this same guy.
Practice
Unless otherwise instructed, determine the convergence or divergence of these series. If possible, determine the value to which the series converges and whether the series converges conditionally or absolutely. Make sure to specify the test(s) and theorem(s) you used as part of your final answer.

\(\displaystyle{ \sum_{n=2}^{\infty}{ \frac{1}{\ln(n)} } }\)
Problem Statement 

Determine whether the series \(\displaystyle{ \sum_{n=2}^{\infty}{ \frac{1}{\ln(n)} } }\) converges or diverges.
Solution 

Practice problem 157 on the Direct Comparison Test page shows the details on proving that \( 1/\ln(n) \geq 1/n \). We do not consider his logic in 'The List' to be adequate for showing divergence, although we do recommend that you confirm your answer this way.
