 most difficult key to play in?

I'm working my way through the scale exercises in Barrett. The ones where you take a scale, e.g., c major, and do patterns. cdcdcdcd,dededede, etc, then back down, and the next one is cdecdecdecde,defdefdefdef. etc until you are doing the entire scale up and down.

Well, I was happy with my progress on Bb and C but now that I have hit Db/C# I feel like I'm all fumble fingers and it isn't getting much better with time. I was learning flat keys first because it seems all band music is in flats, plus I don't have high register fingerings memorized any more and didn't want to skip up to F.
Too soon? stick with it? Is this notoriously worse than other scales?
