  • Need advice on taking calculus classes.

    I know that this question is asked generally on the boards. I would appreciate any feedback on my taking calc III.

    I took Calc I 16 years ago. Passed FM last year. I failed P/1 a few times so I took a took calc II this summer but wound up passing P/1 the first week of class.

    Should I take Calc III? Do I need it for MLC or MFE? or more specifically (since this is an actuarial forum) what is the probability:coolman: of passing without. I'm not one of the math geniuses on here but not quite a dolt either.

    Any advice is appreciated.

    I think calculus III is only useful up to double/ triple integration. The following parts like Green's theorem, Stoke's theorem and so forth are not helpful for actuarial exams.

      Don't waste your time with CALC III...the only thing you would need to know is double integration but since you've passed P already I'd say you are all set. Anything you might possibly need to know you can just learn on your own and you will save a TON of time by not taking a class.
