Greetings,

This is a question about selecting courses for my semester.

I was planning to take Calculus 3 (Mostly 3-Dimensional topics involving calculus) and a C++ programing course.

If you have heard of these courses, can you please tell me your thoughts about me taking these two courses.

Is it possible to learn these two courses in one semester, or is it suicide. Perhaps I should take another science-related cource instead.I hope someone can warn me about the difficulty of taking both of these.

I remember when I considered taking a course on solving differential equations using FORTRAN. When I saw that I knew nothing about FORTRAN, I shelved that idea!

However, if you already know some C++, you might be able to swing it, but as a math major who went on for a MS in computer science, I can tell you that programming courses can suck up a lot of time, and upper-division math courses can, too.
