Will be taking Physics this fall. General or Analytical? Math background : Will be at the level of Calc 3 and Linear Algebra by fall. Physics background : None..Am a high school dropout. Got my GED and currently enrolled in a community college. Some of my friends and tutors have been telling me to take analytical but a lot of my friends who were supposedly NJ star students and bright in high school took the analytical route first and repented it , their grades range from C's to F's.
