Since the pre-registration time for the Fall semester is approaching i need to make plans as what to take next semester.

Specifically, i am planning on taking one or two reading courses since they are not offered via regular curriculum. While it is not for sure that i might be able to do so, since i need the consent of my instructors, i still want to know which of the following would be a better option.

1. One option is to cover completely the first part of General Topology by Munkres; that is the remaining chapters.

2. Cover only the essential remaining parts from General Topology and move on to Algebraic Topology (Second part of Topology by Munkres)

3. A second part of Real Analysis using Rudin's book, Principles of Mathematical Analysis and cover as much as possible.

4. A second portion of Abstract Algebra (> Polynomial Rings etc.)

Since, at best, i will be able to do only two of the above, i was wondering what would you recommend that i insist for?

Option 1 or 2 are the most likely to happen, since the professor i am taking Point-Set topology with, is more of a Topologist rather than Analyst or Algebraist.

But anyways, what would you guys suggest me do?

Thanks in advance.
