Hello everyone, I was wondering if people could give me insight into these classes (difficulty, professors, study tips, etc.)
I know this schedule has a high amount of math, but math is a strength of mine, so I do not think this will be a problem.
- MATH 31B
- MATH 33A
- CHEM 20A
- ECON 1
I am aiming for a double major in economics and mathematics with computation. Any insight will be greatly appreciated.
Honestly, I do not recommend taking 4 classes your first quarter. Just do Math 31B, Chem 20A, and Econ 1, and that’s all. I forget if the lower division math courses enforce the requisites, but 33A has 31B as a pre-req anyway.
One more thing, though math is a strength, even the lower division math classes are a step above high school math classes (at least in my experience). I’m not saying you personally are unable to do it, but I wouldn’t assume you can just jump right in like that. You’re also going to be adjusting to college life, living there, quarter system, etc - there’s no need to get so far ahead in coursework your first quarter. Sorry to sound all “lecturey,” but I just don’t want to see you stress yourself out your very first quarter; there will be plenty of time for that later on
idk how smart you are, but generally you dont want to take 4 classes your first quarter, especially 3 technical classes. I’ve heard that econ 1 is pretty easy so I wouldn’t really worry about that, but 31B is supposed to be pretty tough, as is 20A. I think you should sign up for all 4 classes and then drop one if the workload gets too hard if you really want to follow this path.
