Without more information I don't see how anyone can advise you on much of anything. If you are just starting college, for example, a decision along those lines is meaningless since you will be taking the same set of course for at least the first year anyway. If you are starting on a PhD on the other hand, that's a different story. Do you want us to just guess where you are?

By the way, does your browser not have a spell checker?

Well I'm a 3rd year undergrad in mechanical engineering and physics major. So my experience is calc with some diffeq and I'm in modern physics, but ready most of the book already. That is the extent of my knowledge. Also I go to purdue calumet. A satellite campus.
