Questions to ask:

- Will the institutions that I'm planning to attend reward credit for my courses? Will I want to retake them?

- Am I taking this merely to show colleges that I pursued additional math once I finished Calculus BC? (and do not anticipate credit for such courses). If so, consider the below.

- Am I the type to procrastinate? Keep in mind that self-paced distance courses are easy to procrastinate on, and that it may be very painful to finish up with the work.

To consider:

- Depth is often achieved by doing more problems by yourself, rather than by the course itself.

- Note that the courses are computational and non-proof based. If one desires a rigorous course with highly motivated students who are mostly interested about mathematics, try the below: (or check out the textbooks "Calculus Volume 1" by Apostol or "Calculus" by Spivak.

http://www.artofproblemsolving.com/Classes/AoPS_C_About.php. Keep in mind that universities will not reward credit for any courses off artofproblemsolving.com, but students typically get more online instructor and peer instruction from them.

- Read The Calculus Trap: http://www.artofproblemsolving.com/Resources/AoPS_R_A_Calculus.php

- EPGY forbids you from allowing you to make photocopies of your tests. Keep this in mind if you consider taking an EPGY course.

- EPGY splits its multivariable calculus course into two, as per Stanford standards. This is rarely done in other universities.

- There are distance learning multivariable calculus courses offered by other institutions. If you have any links, please reply to this thread and post below.

-ArtofProblemSolving.com students are exceptional in math. If you're not hardcore into math, take their definition of "too easy" into consideration.

Some months from now, when the old threads go down, at least some people will use the search feature on threads titled with EPGY, and I think that those who search for EPGY would choose this thread first. Anyways, enjoy.

Note: texas137 and tokenadult have some very good points. Pay special attention to their posts. Note that the UT-Austin link is broken. Multivariable calculus is often referred to as "Calculus III" in many institutions.

Another question for one to ask:

- How did I find Calculus BC? Was it very easy or just at the right difficulty? If very easy, consider artofproblemsolving.com courses (or EPGY + self-study). If at the right difficulty, EPGY should be ideal.
