Lecture - Dislikes “I don’t like the format of the notes…Too much paper” “I like the examples, but too much time is wasted on students going over the problems before they are explained” “Want to go over more problems like the problems on HW” “Pre-lectures aren’t fair, we haven’t learned the material yet” “Test problems aren’t the same as the HW problems”. “Want more examples” “It would be better if the examples to be worked out slower” “The problems are “not worked out fully” or “algebra steps are skipped” “The pace of the class is too fast” “Physics”

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
