I've heard that colleges frown on taking both the lower and higher levels of a subject. Is this true? I plan to take both Physics C courses the year after next, and am not sure whether to take Physics B next year. Will taking both Physics B and C hurt me, will it have no effect, or will it be better?
Thanks in advance.

While colleges may frown upon taking AP Comp Sci A before AB, or even Calc AB before BC (although I don't know what insane college would do that), Physics is different. Physics B covers tons of stuff that Physics C does not cover: waves and optics, thermodynamics, and atomic physics. Physics B also provides a foundation for the advanced Mech. and E&M covered in Physics C. In fact, I'd think you're screwed if you tried to go into Physics C without B, although you're probably smarter than me.
