Summer plans?

This summer, I plan on taking summer courses in Italian at a local community college to get some of my school's general requirement courses out of the way for a cheaper price and thus allowing me to take more math courses in the future :P

My academic plan this summer is to go through some textbooks I won at my school's Integration Bee and a few others I borrowed from professors. I already finished going through a couple of them and chances are, I'll be done going through all of them around July giving me a month left before the next semester starts.
I plan on taking the GMAT and taking at least one actuarial test in college.

Should I study for the GMAT or an actuarial test?

An integration bee? As in you have to integrate things in front of everybody? I have never heard of this, but I love this concept!

Yeah, I thought those sorts of competitions died out in the 16th century with Cardan and Tartaglia.
