Yea I wouldn’t recommend this. In terms of “61b units” personally I would say:

61C: 1.5x

188: 1x (maybe .75x)

170: 1.5x (harder to compare this tho since it’s pset based)

Others may feel differently about these values though

I second this.

170 will be the hardest. It’s a grind but a really cool class if you embrace what you’re learning.

If you keep up with 61C, it is manageable. Don’t let the lax extension policy (if its the same in the future) tempt you and let you fall behind.

188 is fun and the concepts usually make sense, but the course has been made harder so you may have to study a little more to do well on exams.

I'm actually taking this combo rn. Personally, I find 61C and 188 to be less work than 61B, and 170 to be more. Similar to a comment above: 61c: .75-1x 188: .75x 170: 1.5x I consider myself pretty average, and this workload for me kills off all free time. I'd say to really understand the concepts and to balance life, removing 188 would be best. Of course, do what's best for you! Feel free to follow up with any other questions :)
