Schools University preparation

  1. Jul 29, 2009 #1
    Hey all, I'm beginning university in Physics in a month. How it works in Quebec is that you have 2 year's worth of CEGEP, in which you have a general science program, and then you move on to university for a 3 year baccalaureate.

    I was wondering if I should start reviewing the maths and physics I've seen in cegep before I begin university. I had 4 math classes: differentials, integrals, linear algebra/vector geometry and advanced calculus. We also had the standard 3 physics courses: mechanics, E&M and waves/optics/modern physics.

    Would reviewing these courses give me an edge in university, or is it standard practice in university courses to review it all at the beginning of the year? In short, would it be worth it?

    Thanks a lot!

    Haven't you just reviewed it all to pass your school exams? As I took a daft combined course at University I ended up doing vector geometry three times. That got pretty stale! So avoid going stale, take a break, go and track bears or something.
