I've heard organic chemistry.
Partial differential equations according to my son.
I've never had difficulty with any courses that I wanted to learn. Then again the math learned by business majors is kids stuff compared to the math learned by an engineer.

Music history- it was so hard to stay awake and even the book is boring.

However, I LOVE teaching the history behind music to my elementary students, I don't just drone on, we have fun with it.

This was the one I could never get to grips with. No idea, why. I have degrees in theoretical physics and pure mathematics. so it's not that I don't have a brain wired for science. Up until then I'd got on fine with chemistry.

High school? Toughest class was French, easiest class was computer programming.

College? Toughest class was Digital Signal Processing, easiest class was again computer programming.

I'm now a programmer. Go figure.

Algebra.

It's weird. I had no trouble with Calculus, but I HATED Algebra. Just too darn abstract.

Describes balanced equations perfectly.

There are so many types of Math classes, that saying "Math" was the hardest subject doesn't do it justice.

I never really understood either one of the Quantum Mechanics classes I had to take (was senior year so was more interested in putting them behind me so I could earn my degree). Dirac notation baffled me.

I also took some sort of space topology class (black holes, Schwartzchild radius/metric, etc.) out of sequence (sophomore) which had tons of tensor and matrix calculus which was baffling. I wonder how much easier that would be today in the age of the internet where google could help me when I got stuck.
