If your're taking the couse at a community college then, the course is geared towards non science majors. The empahsis is geared toward basic calculation of vectors and the like.

If your'e taking the course at a school like Georgia Tech (I live in Atl.) or Georgia State Univ. (kickass physics dept.) then the course is going to deal with vector operators (div grad, curl), Stokes Theorem and so on. For Math majors the course is going to stress proofs and contain more Linear Algerbra.

I'm a physics major who wound up taking the couse at a community college. It sucked. We didn't even cover mutiple integrals. It was a essientially Cal II review with vectors. I would have been eaten alive in EMAG or Mechanics. I had to cover most of the advanced material myself.

I recommend this book:

by H.M. Schey

So it depends on whether your college is quarter, semester or trimester. I found Calc II (integral) harder than calc III at my school.
