Here's the situation: I started working on an engineering degree right out of high school but I left to pursue nursing after 3 semesters. After a semester in nursing I'm considering returning to the sciences by working toward a B.S. in physics, starting Spring 2014 (I need to give nursing one more semester). The problem: I've been out of the math game for a while now, and I'm worried that I wouldn't be able to handle (mathematically) the classes that I would take my first semester back (classical mechanics, electromagnetic theory, mathematical methods in physics). My mathematical experience: I took calculus 1 and 2 in high school (received AP credit), and then took calculus 3 (C) and differential equations (A) my freshman year of college. I also took calculus-based physics 1 & 2 (both A's). I've never felt like I was great at math, but I have always made decent grades, with the exception of calculus 3. So, in short, it will be around 2 years since I've taken (or used) any relevant math when/if I start back with classes like mechanics. Can it be done? Should it? Has anyone else done it? Any advice is appreciated.
