Inconsistency on which classes to take (ASSIST vs Official Schools' Sites)

I'm applying this fall from a CCC to UCSB but have noticed that for Comp Eng:

This one says three semesters Physics and General Chemistry.

ASSIST 16/17 (what I have been following according to my counselors) says two semesters Physics and no Chemistry.

ASSIST 19/20 has absolutely no Physics or Chemistry.

Which source should I trust the most? The link given has also said to refer to ASSIST but the information on the websites is inconsistent with ASSIST's course prep. I'm not sure which one I should follow or if I'm reading the info in the link correctly. I've already asked three counselors at my CCC and all of them had blank stares. If anyone could point me in the right direction, that would be great!

The math courses are consistent throughout each.

    I would definitely go with what UCSB says. (3 sem of Physics, 1 sem of Chem). The Assist info is sometimes missing info and/or mislabeled.

    https://www.ce.ucsb.edu/undergrad/curriculum lists the UCSB computer engineering degree requirements.

    Included are CHEM 1A+1AL or 2A+2AC, and all of PHYS 1, 2, 3, 3L, 4, 4L. So you probably want to take the courses that articulate to those UCSB courses even if not required for transfer.

    It looks like ASSIST has the by-major listings for UCSB computer engineering for the 2016-2017 academic year; newer years have listings only by department (offering the course).
