I'm attending TAMU this fall and have new student conference early next week. I'm having a difficult time deciding if I should go ahead and take calc 3 during my first semester. I'm majoring in Petroleum Engineering. In high school calculus AB/BC I was pretty solid I think. I got basically Bs all year around with a pretty competitive class. I managed to pull off a 5 on the BC exam, although i have a feeling i was pretty close to a 4. My teacher is thought to be very good in my school. Everyone passed the BC exam. In fact everyone got a 5 except for two people who got 4s. I'll admit after summer my calc 1/calc 2 understanding is a little fuzzy. I'm hoping to recap quite a bit in the next 2-3 weeks. But we did cover everything in my calc class in high school. We even went a little bit into multivariable calculus after the BC exam. At TAMU calc 1/2 are supposed to be weed out courses. I've heard that people who did well in calc in high school also have a difficult time in these classes. Many people actually consider calc 3 to be easier. However, if I do retake calc 1/2 I think I will definitely solidify my understanding in calculus. Does anyone have further advice?
