yeah, it's doable.  you just have to stop from time to time to try to 
visualize things such as a function's graph or behavior at or near a point. 
Long equations get tricky, but with practice that can be done too.  I found 
Linear Algebra to be the most difficult to do without Braille especially 
when dealing with big matrices.
