But when was calc 1? I took calc 3 in the spring of 2006 before I graduated. Yay for taking half the day off for community college.

I can truthfully state that I never took a class called "real analysis' but over the years my job has sometimes required me to perform analysis of real problems.

yeah me, I'm an actuary with no credentials who calls himself an actuary with a capital AY

I believe "real analysis" is an old wooden ship from the civil war era

I had major classes called Advanced Calculus 1 and 2 which were a more intense, proof-based run through the calculus sequence. From what I gather about real analysis, a lot of overlap.
