What do you think of my spring 2015 semester toward my Mechanical engineering degree??

I attend Olive Harvey community college and I have picked my spring semester classes toward my mechanical engineering degree! I'm taking:

Physics 235 - Engineering Physics I: Mechanics & Wave Motion
Math 208 - Calculus
Speech 101

Seems like an intense semester but I mainly can focus on my math. Do you think this is a intense schedule? I am going for my associates in science degree focus area engineering. I will just have 2 more semesters to go so then i will be able to transfer to a university. xD

    That doesn't look especially intense at all. It's only two technical classes and three total. Wait until you get into an engineering program and take 5 classes, 4 of them technical.

    Good I'm pretty good with my derivatives so I know I can meet the standards of doing well in my calculus 2 class. Its just my Physics 235 class will challenge me. I have never even stepped a foot into physics but I have been reading and researching about the class and I find that Exploration of the laws of mechanics and wave motion using calculus to analyze practical and theoretical problems. Writing assignments, as appropriate to the discipline, are part of the course. How intense is the Physics class have you ever took it? Are the word problems mainly challenging or what is the most challenging of the course?

    Yeah I've taken it but my opinion of it right now isn't realt fair since I use the concept of waves pretty much every day. I didn't think it was bad when I took it but I also had taken physics in high school so our situations are not quite the same.
