Due to my circumstances I will soon have a significant block of time out of college(6 months or so). I have so far finished my first year of undergraduate studies and have taken trig., calculus I, introductory physics, mechanics, and the other common first year required courses. I work well studying independently, and have been doing so for several years in order to get ahead (which has worked out quite well for me). I am working towards a Physics degree and/or Applied Mathematics degree (that's a whole different issue). Anyway, this time off I will be having will be spent working part time, wandering through the woods, and hopefully getting some serious studying done. My question is in regard to what subject area I should focus my efforts on. I tend to do best by intensely but narrowly focusing on a particular subject, rather than focusing more broadly and generally in several areas. My initial thoughts are to delve much more deeply and thoroughly into calculus, as I feel I am significantly more well prepared for my second and third year physics courses than the more advanced mathematics. So what do you think? I've got six months of stress free learning opportunity that I do not want to waste.
