Hi, apologies if I'm on the wrong website or anything. I'll be starting math at Harvard next year but am at a loss as to which course I should start with. I have a good background in competition math (so I know the essentials of most elementary math topics), finished working through Apostol's two calculus volumes a few months ago and have been dabbling into things like linear and abstract algebra but with no clear direction. I would say I'm fairly strong at proofs but I will probably end up taking math 101* at some point.

To summarize, I know high school math well and have studied calculus using Apostol's two calculus volumes.

Would you say math 25* is a good choice? I heard it's pretty tough-going...

Thanks

*The courses I'm referring to: http://www.math.harvard.edu/pamphlets/beyond.html
