Physics IA, Statics, and Cal III in the fall - doable?

  1. Apr 3, 2013 #1
    My adviser has suggested this lineup for me for the fall semester this year. I have not had any problems understanding calculus so far, and I am very excited about physics and statics, but the idea of this kind of workload is new to me and is quite daunting. Is this doable? Or would you advise against it? I am no kind of genius, but I'm not struggling either. I do work, and with my job I can realistically devote up to 20 hours/ week to studying, and perhaps a bit more prior to exams.

    Sure. My first quarter of sophomore year I did Statics, Vector Calculus, E&M, and Music. It was a lot of work but doable (the music part wasn't much work).

    Yes, it is doable. Last semester I had statics, E&M, vector calculus, intro to CS (very rigorous at our school) plus a couple of less noteworthy classes. Realistically, you've got to get used to these sorts of loads sooner or later since it's what all the science, engineering and math degrees become by 2nd semester sophomore year.
