Continuation of Physics

One simple question. Is there any need to take Physics 1 and 2 in sequence? I’m planning to take Physics 1 during th spring of 2009 and won’t be able to take Physics 2 till spring of 2010.

My main objective is to optimize my MCAT score, of course.

At my shcool they were two very different classes that did NOT build upon the other, so it could have been done in any order. We had some students who had already taken Physics 2 in the Physics 1 class (they thought 2 was easier than 1).

Also, you do not have to take them in consecutive semesters.
