You should not take more than three science and/or math courses per semester. Despite  
what others may say, NEVER take a course without the proper prerequisites. There is simply  
no sense in putting yourself at an academic disadvantage in order to meet some artificial  
deadline. Remember, individuals evaluating a transcript will not be impressed by mediocre  
grades just because you managed to pass the course without the prerequisites. In the  
unlikely event the evaluator notices the discrepancy, it will probably count against you, as  
evidence of exercising poor judgment.
