    Calc 3 will be one of the more confusing math classes you take, but certainly not the hardest. And if you can't handle that, you won't stand a chance in things like Physics 2 which is like a basics course on Electromagnetic Fields (aka the hardest class I have ever taken).
    As I mentioned in my original post, I never took Calc 3. I don't have too. The last math class I took(and have to take) was Adv. Engineering Math, which was basically an accelerated course that combined Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, and a bit of Calc. 3. The majority of the class either had taken, or was taking Physics 2 at the same time, and everyone said that the MATH250 class was harder. Perhaps it was the instructor though. He was a bad teacher, at least for that level of a Math course.

    ober5861 - I've considered what you've said to me, and though I found it rather harsh at first, I went and reread some of the information from the CS and EE department at KU, and I think I will probably change majors to EE. The classes I've taken thus far will still transfer, so really nothing changes. But I think that would interest me more than CE, which teaches engineering principles, but still relies heavily on software development. Anyway, thanks for the advice.

    I thought it might come across as harsh, but I just wanted to point out what I was getting out of your post. If nothing else, I'm glad I made you at least think about it.

    Do you go to Kettering???

    Nah. I'm just going to a community college right now. This is my second year there. I'm going to transfer to a university next year. When I said KU, I just meant the University of Kansas. I don't know that I could even get in to Kettering. I got a C in my last math class.

    ahh... I was wondering if you were talking about another KU.

    Anyways, good luck with whatever you end up doing. I'm sure you'll be fine. Recognizing what you really want to do is half the battle to reaching your goals.
