I'm currently in Calc III (Chemistry major), and my Calc I and II classes were full of Computer Science majors. Don't know much about the rest of the curriculum, but so many of the students feels that it isn't needed.

Calc is difficult because they build on one another. I feel that Calc II is the hardest out of all three that I have taken. Calc I is pretty straightforward if you stay on top of the homework and make sure you understand each major concept in the beginning of the course. It's really all about manipulating derivatives, which is easy if you learn the most basic concepts.
