I am planning on majoring in computer science or management in information systems. I am currently behind on my math classes. I currently plan to take the following classes this spring. TECHNICAL ALGEBRA & TRIG CONCEPTS OF MATHEMATICS COLLEGE TRIGONOMETRY DISCRETE MATHEMATICS I My question is if i take all these classes in one semester will it become confusing? Should i remove one or more classes to make it easier for me? I am pretty good at math it is just i am not familiar on the difficulty of the material.

It looks like it's manageable, then. Keep up on the TECHNICAL ALGEBRA & TRIG , it'll make the other classes easier if you understand it better.
