Diff. EQ. and Vector Analysis at the same time?

Thinking about doing this. I've already taken Linear Algebra and Cal. III. Diff. EQ. and Vector Analysis will probably be the only two courses I take in the fall. I MIGHT take the stupid only Writing Intensive core I need, but I can do whatever class that is at almost any time.

So, what do you think?

If the Vector Analysis class is in any way similar to the Vector Calculus course I took, you should be fine.

How are you only taking two courses in the fall?

Partly due to financial constraints, working 20 hours a week, work/class schedule conflicts, and chiefly not wanting to inundate myself with courses where I need to adequately absorb the material.

What's wrong with only taking two courses in the fall? I take courses in the summer, too, by the way to cushion my not taking THAT many courses in the main semesters.

Nothing wrong with it I guess, it's just on the very slow side of achieving a degree and doesn't exactly appear to be a good thing if you're a full time student.

But since you're having to work and whatnot you're basically a part timer, which is fine.

Yeah, I'm a part-timer. Hopefully, by the time I finish, it will have taken me about six years to finish my Physics BS, which isn't too bad.

What about these two math courses and an additional non-science course? Would that be pushing it?
