I HATE INDUCTORS AND CAPACITORS!!!!!
The book i'm using to learn these is almost useless. It's like "here, we just taught you this very confusing concept. Here is a simple example of how to do a simple problem". the next thing you know, the homework problem is one of the most confusing problems in the book, and the examples don't help at all.

RAGE!

I found that the best trick for those particular problems is to break it into 3 pieces - Steady State pre switch, Steady State post switch, and the exponential relation that joins the two.

Just wait until you start hitting OP-amp RC/RL circuits, or even AC circuits with Caps and inductors. Once you start putting numbers into the complex plane, you'll be thinking fondly of DC analysis.

I had to take an EE physics and an ME physics class. There is a reason I'm an ME major now

Master of EE here. RLC's are easy, don't sweat it so much. Find on-line help.
