Lately I've been setting out what courses I would should take as a Physics major but I've had a few problems with the math courses in my university (UNLV).

I read on a different thread that one should take ordinary differential equations before taking calc III (multivariable) but I cannot take dif. eq's until my junior year, currently I'm in my first semester of freshman year taking Trig/Pre-Calc.

Should I wait a year in order to take differential eq's and then take calc III or is it recommended to just teach myself dif. eq's and then taking the dif. eq's course when I can?

Also would a physicist need to learn Real Analysis, or just Complex Analysis?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
