I am in my first semester of university and currently taking Linear Algebra. I was planning on majoring in EECS but I lost interest in EE and engineering in general (except software) and gained a lot of interest in maths (especially statistics and financial mathematics) so I will double major in maths and CS. Real Analysis is a core subject for both CS and statistics. It is a prerequisite for most second year maths subjects and almost all third year maths subjects. I have the following two options: Take Calculus 2 in first year semester 2 and Real Analysis in second year semester 1. Take an accelerated subject in first year semester 2 which combines both Calculus 2 and Real Analysis into one subject. I (barely) gained admission into this subject as I got 90+ in HS calculus. I have a 6 weeks break between semesters 1 and 2, so is it a good idea to pre-study for the accelerated subject or will I run the risk of burning out? Or should I take it slowly and do Calculus 2 and Real Analysis separately? The only difference it makes is that if I do Calculus 2 and Real Analysis separately, I won't be able to take Graph Theory and I won't be able to take Complex Analysis in second year. I can still take Complex Analysis in third year but I won't be able to take Graph Theory at all. Takeing Calculus 2 and Real Analysis as one subject basically allows me to take one extra subject. If I want to pre-study for the accelerated class effectively, do you have any advice? If you were in this situation and had 6 weeks to prepare, what would you do? To be honest, I am kind of intimidated by the accelerated class, because it is considered to be one of the most difficult undergraduate classes.
