The 9 Hardest Classes at A&M The 9 Hardest Classes at A&M
1. MATH 409 – Advanced Calculus This class is basically just proofs, right? You know what there is no proof for? Bigfoot. Now THAT... The 9 Hardest Classes at A&M

This class is basically just proofs, right? You know what there is no proof for? Bigfoot. Now THAT would be a hard class.

2. MGMT 211 – Business Law

Tort Law kind of sounds like turtle. That’s fun, right? Turtles swim! Oh God, not Swim.

3. MEEN 363 – Dynamics and Vibration

I mean, how complicated are vibrations, really? Plenty of things vibrate. My XBOX controller vibrates all the time, and I am freaking great at XBOX.

4. PHYS 208 – Electricity and Optics

You might remember this one from freshman year … or from the recurring nightmares that just won’t seem to go away. Does the smiling lightning bolt make things any better?

5. CHEM 328 – Organic Chemistry II
Screen Shot 2014-12-11 at 1.45.37 PM
How hard is it to draw hexagons? I was drawing parallelograms in first grade.

6. ACCT 327 – Financial Reporting
Screen Shot 2014-12-11 at 1.45.56 PM
If I can account to 10, then I can account to 327. Yawn. Try accounting to 1000.

7. NUEN 418 – Fuel Assembly and 3-D Reactor Core Design and Modeling
Screen Shot 2014-12-11 at 1.46.13 PM
No jokes here. This class sounds like Hell.

8. RPTS 371 – Skills for Youth Development
Screen Shot 2014-12-11 at 1.46.33 PM
Oh, you think this one is just a joke, huh? You ever tried raising kids? I didn’t think so. This class is a full time job for, like, billions of people. This should be core curriculum.

9. MGDN 215 – Intro to Satire Writing
Screen Shot 2014-12-11 at 1.46.46 PM
Literally no one on our staff passed this class. Do with that what you will, just don’t judge.

Cactus Jack

Like Bellamy, we knew immediately that we wanted Cactus Jack on our team. It probably has to do with the fact that when we first met him, he was trying to figure out what it would feel like to lick a cactus. He’s sort of like the abandoned dog you come across on the side of the highway. He may be ugly, but we pulled over to watch and now we feel at least partially responsible for him.

    Haha mgmt 211… Not hard if you just memorize the entire book 😉 seriously though.

    And acct 327… Yeah that one you really need to love accounting

    There are way harder classes than meen 363 in Mechanical Engineering. Try meen 364 or meen 431 which are the advanced versions of that class in the degree plan. Maybe asking a first semester Junior isn’t the most credible source.

    Mgmt 305 with Buffa, that was brutal! Swim was a piece of cake, you just had to r.e.a.d. something that weeded alot of idiotic freshmen out of TAMU and back to Blindergarten

    There is no business class harder than any engineering or science class.

    Physics 208 “You might remember this one from sophmore year” , dead give away you aren’t the best source for things like this if you are taking that Freshman physics class, during your sophmore year… I agree with Nick and Mechanical Engineering; there are no business classes that are even remotely close to being harder than engineering classes, and check your sources.

    I thought MEEN 363 was harder than 364 just because of having a test every two weeks. For sure 431 is more difficult than either of those. MEEN 421 definitely should be mentioned too. A combination of fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, and heat transfer, all taught by a woman who is a former profession hockey player. Its pretty rough.

    NUEN418 not hard for me, this year i’m over it easily

    This website is clearly run by a bunch of comm and journalism majors who think they know things. CHEM328 isn’t ochem its pchem, which is also very hard. Im willing to bet any science or engineering class is more difficult than any business class but if you’re a liberal arts major whats the difference anyway right?

    why would u ever compared business class to engineering class. its like algebra 1 vs Calculus.

    are you serious….. Mgmt 211 is not that hard….. U read. Take notes. Memorize… There’s no understanding involved. Smh

    PETE 310 Reservoir fluids. Taught by a witch and the third exam has been referred to as ‘The terminator’ for quite a while. This course was definitely a struggle

    Major specific- Biochem 440 and 441 are harder than ochem 2 for sure and probably on par with some of the harder engineering courses.

    The content for MGMT 211 isn’t hard or really difficult, but it’s the way Professor Swim designs his exams that make the class so frustrating. I feel that even the best students regardless of their major would struggle to do well in the course. It’s possible to get an A or B, but you’re definitely going to have to put aside several hours each day to study notes and the textbook.

    COSC 254 Should be on this list

    Only a few poor souls ever have to power through physics past 208, but those who do learn that it isn’t the hardest, not by a long shot. 331 and 332 (theoretical methods 1-2) are up there, as are quantum and advanced E&M. Even 225 (circuits) is harder than 208 by a significant margin.

      Very true, 331 is a HUGE learning curve compared to any other physics class engineers have to take. That class did kick my ass.
      Phys 412 (Quantum) Is just as hard
