I'm currently taking calculus II and I'm finding the pace to be a real challenge. Calc I seemed to allow much more time to study a new concept and understand how and why it works, followed by a chapter on applications of that concept. With calc II, I've had to settle for just memorizing how to do the problems. I'm doing ok in the class, no real danger of failing at this point unless I stop showing up for tests, but I'm not doing nearly as well as I would have expected considering the time I'm putting into this course.

Are the other math courses I have to take for engineering going to be more like calc I or calc II? I've heard that calc II is so challenging because of the volume of new theorems and concepts. This leaves little time left over to show how they can be applied.
