is the completion of all khan exercises ( http://i46.tinypic.com/2cp5lqr.jpg ) a good enough indicator that
i know linear algebra, triginometry, geometry, etc enough for 3d game programming?
do the exercises not cover what is done in the videos?

im planning on reading (Mathematics for 3D Game Programming and Computer Graphics)
and or (3D Math Primer for Graphics and Game Development) both around 500 pages afterwords.

also reading a discrete mathematics book around 900 pages

khan exercises + 3d books + discrete math, for game programming = a good plan ?

Well, I don't know, try to write a game and see what happens I guess. This question can't really be answered by anything other than "it depends". Besides, there's a world of difference between theory and application (it's important to know the theory, but you'll still be doing a lot of reading while trying to solve an actual, real problem you're having, believe me).

Put differently, knowledge without action is futile, so I'd say try and put the ideas you discovered in your books into application every 100 pages or so (not a full game, even just a prototype which implements some algorithm you learned about, that kind of stuff) but that's just my two bytes.

“If I understand the standard right it is legal and safe to do this but the resulting value could be anything.”
