I will be starting at Auburn University this Fall with Software Engineering as my major. I just received my AP scores, however, and I did much better in Calculus than I expected, a 5. I understood all of the Cal I & II concepts in class, except for Taylor and McLaurin series. I can do the problems, but it feels formulaic and I don't feel like I grasped the concepts well in that section. Because of that, I decided to retake Cal II my first semester. However, having received a 5 on the AP exam, I am wondering if I should still re-take Cal II or continue to Cal III?
tl;dr Basically, does Software Engineering (or later, higher math in general) require a good basis and understanding in Geometric/Infinite/Taylor series or will I be able to get by without re-taking the course?
