Courses Next course selection advice?

I am working toward an eventual Physics or EE degree.

I currently have completed the following courses online in this order;

Calc 1, Calc 2, Linear Algebra, Phys 1 (calc based classical mech), working on vector Calc 3.

The following are available for me:

- Complex Variables 1
- Ordinary Diff Eq
- Phys 2 (E&M)

Of the three, which one should I pick next?

Thanks

if you might go into EE or Physics, by all means take PHY 2 next. You don't need the higher maths till later. Typically, PHY 2 is taken immediately after PHY 1.

Ordinarily, with a full course load, taking two makes more sense than taking one. If taking only one, Physics 2 makes the most sense.
 
Thanks guys, if i were to double up a course, what whould you suggest?
