Functional analysis (which included some fourier analysis). That Folland text was impossible to read. At least I was able to get the Stein and Shakarchi series of books and make some sense out of it.

In a K-12 setting, math is hardest for most students. If you fall behind, you will fall further and further behind because math concepts build on top of previous knowledge.

In High school it is usually the AP sciences, especially Chemistry, and AP Calculus.

I think that there is no one tougher subject overall; what can be toughest for someone may not be the case for someone else. At the college level I would probably struggle just as much in upper-division humanities courses, if not more, as I would in upper-division math and yet I am a physics grad student...

"Organic" as we use to call it was a b*tch.

Chemistry was one of the hardest classes I ever took. My brain is not wired to understand something I cannot see and absolutely could not relate to anything in real life.

I also did terrible in trigonometry, algebra, and in every junior high and high school math you can think of. High school really tanked my self esteem, in other words.

I did better in physics because those concepts actually applied to real life, so it was easier for me to understand physics.
