    I'm very keen on taking MA200 but not MA201, any ideas for a good half unit combination for MA200?

    Anybody taken FM320? how was it? interesting?

    I haven't done MA103, could I cope with Real Analysis without it?

    Id like to take calculus because im interested in it and because it keeps my options open, not keen on linear algebra though (seen enough in EC221 already)

    thanks

    Masters in econ -- ma201, 203 or 301 sounds like a good idea.

    Otherwise, FM320 sounds interesting and probably more useful for working in finance.

    I'm just stating the obvious but it's probably true. I'd ask your academic adviser/personal tutor.

    i know someone who did 203 without 103. so it is possible.

    from my perspective, analysis at first was tough. i really worked for it in first year - but did very well. and actually once one gets the hang of it, i found it enjoyable maths.

    come second year there is def an advantage of having seen the stuff before. because at the end of the day the principles are the same as in 103 - theres just more of it and more complex in 203 - but not necessarily more difficult - 40% or so get a first. it depends on whether you "get" how to do that kind of proofs.

    so if you do do it, I suggest reading the relevant part of the MA103 course guide in the summer and downloading the homeworks and solutions of ma103

    the notation in ec202 is a killer alright. still more interesting than cowell's stuff though.
