hopefully some non 09ers students can help answer this...

how easy is it to take courses when you havent had the prerequisites? this also ties into my last question. does anyone check through this, or do you just register via SCORE and nobody notices?

my calc scores on the AP exam werent good enough to place me into second-year calc, but i think i'd like to try it anyway.

you wanna do 104 instead of 103? you can always start in 104 and try it out, and drop down if you need to.

I place into 104 according to their guidelines, but I wanted to try multivariable, either 201 or 203.

Yea. Well, I left a bunch of questions blank since I thought the proctor had said one time and then he said stop and I thought I had another 15 mins. But either way I am not sure what I think I want to take; it might make sense to take 104 so I feel like I have a really solid basis and then can go into the harder class 203 instead of 201. Anyway, I haven't decided but I was curious to see if I would be able to if I did want to try.

I do have a tendency to try to overextend myself, and I will really try to not do this too much this year. :) I haven't decided if I want to try the harder course yet, and will only do so if I think I really am ready for it. I just don't want to get behind and four years have gone by and I haven't taken all the upper-level courses I wanted to b/c I am still back on the introductory ones.

With the 5 courses, I figure I'll sign up for them all (assuming my advisor lets me) and then decide whether I want to keep them or drop one since you have a bit of time during the drop period, I think.
