I'm trying to figure out which classes I will be taking for my freshmen year in college. The score I got on my AP Calc AB test places me in Calc 2, but looking at the course syllabus it seems like stuff I already know pretty well. However, the school strongly recommends that students who took only AP calc AB retake Calc 1, so they would very very strongly not recommend skipping calc 2. Now, I also took Ap phys C. My scores place me out of the physics class I'm currently registered for, because the more advanced physics class I would be taking requires one to take calc 3 at the same time. Here's what I'm wondering right now: if my AP Phys scores qualifies me for a class that uses calc 2 (assumes knowledge of calc 2) and I feel comfortable with the subjects listed on the course syllabus, is it possible that I am qualified to take calc 3? I know that this stuff probably differs university to university but any advice is appreciated. P.S. the text used in Calc 2 is Early Transcendentals by Stewart, a used copy of which I have already ordered for summer perusal purposes. I'm working on some of the challenge problems on the book's website. Will these give me an accurate measure of my ability? EDIT: I guess now that I think about it I really don't even have credit for calc 2 so this may not be possible, but I find it extremely odd that they give out physics credit for knowledge I allegedly do not have.
