Modern Algebra - What is it?

  1. Nov 5, 2008 #1
    Hey everyone,

    I'm looking at taking Modern Algebra next semester. Could someone tell me what its all about? How does it differ from Calculus?

    Also, on a scale from 1 - 10, personally how hard is it (assuming Calculus II is a 5)?

    Can't you find a syllabus? This is probably a better question for the Academic Guidance forum. If it's what is often called 'Abstract Algebra' (group theory etc.) then it's not much like Calc II. Whether it's harder or not depends completely on your skills. There's not information in a numerical rating.
