Should I take physics and calculus concurrently in the Fall?

I'm currently in pre calc for the summer, and it's not the easiest class ever, but I understand it. In the Fall I will be enrolled in calc 1 and calc based physics. I will also be taking humanities and history in the same quarter. Does this sound like it will be too difficult?

Yes, knowing pre-calc will benifit u in physics and obviously calculus. Also physics and calculus run along same topics. Do it!

Most schools have calculus as a pre-requisite for calc-based physics, not a co-requisite.  You need to understand limits and be able to differentiate polynomial functions, as well as understand the basics of integration, the first week of calculus-based physics.

No, no, no! Do NOT take calculus-based physics and calculus at the same time. You won't be able to understand the physics very well unless your school has made them work concurrently.
