Testing Testing out of calc based physics

  1. Oct 27, 2006 #1
    Dear all:
    I am a student at the University of Hartford and next semester I must take an Introductory physics course with basis on Calculus. Now I was pondering simply takeing a month or two and teaching it to myself and then testing out of the class so I can move onto more advanced materials quicker. I have taken a calculus course and I have the more basic fundalmentals down. What do people think? too risky? or think it might be beneficial to take the class anyways? Im trying to locate examples of the math myself so i can determine if i have the knowledge to do what I want to do.

    Thanks for your help!

    you might consider, if there's a lab component to the course, then they might not let you test out of it.
