Secondly, I wouldn't say you have much to worry about if you did well in Calc I and II--it is not that much different and many of my friends thought it was the easiest in the sequence. However, if you're motivated to study things, then I would recommend, first and foremost, to review the material you did in Calc I and II. Make sure you recall things like the definition of an integral, limits, and integration methods such as substitution and integration by parts.
If you feel you are comfortable with that, then maybe you can work ahead if you truly feel like it. Out of all the subjects, I think I struggled most with polar coordinates. Just my .02
Thank you, I appreciate it. So far things are going well, though the compressed nature of the course (4x a week for 2.5 hours) is making keeping up with the material a bit difficult.
That, and the lack of a 3d graphing software.
