    You being a Slavic speaker, I would've thought you'd find German easy.
    German is more similar to the languages spoken in Western Europe than it is to Eastern Europe

    Theoretical electrotehnics. That was the name of the subject, use of Maxwell equations for solving complex electromagnetic problems.

    It’d probably be a tie between algebraic topology and advanced algorithms and data structures. The former class had very deep, abstract theory around it and we’ve been tasked to solve advanced, nontrivial problems, for which a complete understanding of the topic was neccessary, in no way you could get away with working knowledge only, as it is in most calculus courses for example. For the latter, no deep theoretical basis was neccessary, except for some graph theory and complexity analysis, but any problem we’ve been given, including the ones on the final test was pretty much worthy of being in mathematical olympiad. I’ve actually enjoyed it a lot, but it used to stress me to an extreme degree. Differential geometry was no joke either, especially considering that it is mandatory even for bachelor students.

    Just some background before I tell you all why I find the following subject challenging: I am actively looking for full funding for my Doctoral thesis. My methodologies are primarily qualitative and interpretive. In fact, my area of focus cannot be studied quantitatively. I'm examining the representation of desire and boredom in 20th century American literature. It is pointless to approach this aspect from a quantitative standpoint. But, because I want funding, I have no choice but to tackle a list of tedious, college-level Statistics readings. That right there is my reading list. How this is necessary for my thesis, I will never understand. But that's what it means to seek full funding.

    I take it you're a Computer Science/Math major.

    Never understood why for many people writing essays is so difficult because in the modern world there are so many resources to solve this issue. All you have to do is visit this site https://advancedwriter.net/
