University advice

  1. Jul 2, 2012 #1
    Hi everyone. I have never taken a physics course in my life, however since I was younger I always wished to study it. My future goal is to become a physician, and for premedicine I need a year of physics. To my understanding the only "real" physics there is is calculus based.

    I am planning on attending the university of washington next year. So far I have taken 3 college math courses in the duration of my high school career. Precal 1 with a 1.5 (first class in college), calculus 1 with a 3.0, and calculus 2 with a 2.4. I had a good understanding of calculus 1, but I honestly didn't understand some of the things in calculus 2 (area rotation, work problems, and I couldn't understand centroids to well. I tutored in math at the college and mastered my difficulties in pre Cal and calculus 1 however. Should I retake calculus 2 at uw when I'm taking general chemistry and physics?
