    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Good course, you learn a lot, however it very difficult. The tests are solely concept based. Learn from your homework, think about why your answers are correct. In other words, do not simply try different questions until one of them gives the correct answer.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the moment principle, energy principle, angular momentum, statistical mechanics, and time management. I can now understand various interactions, what caused them, what they resulted in and why they gave those results.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book. Take your own notes based on the book and read it before each lecture. By doing so, you will understand each lesson better. Also, many of the examples in the book are what the homework questions are based on. Do the homework thoughtfully, do not simply apply different equations until one gives the correct answer.

    Taught about basic mechanics, vector operations and laws of thermodynamics.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    READ THE BOOK! Its the most importat thing. If you don't pay attention in lectures, recitations and labs, just read the book for the exams and youll be okay

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Pushkar is not the best professor, but there are professors that are a little better. My suggestion would be to try out different lectures. Don't worry about the iclickers. I go to different lectures, and my iclicker answers still register for my points.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to play around with resources, lectures, and different ways of doing homework and studying to find the best way to manage the class. Although you are in an environment of many people, several times it may feel like you are alone when it comes down to managing the course.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Try out different professors. Go into the course expecting challenges so that you do not slack off. Do not allow yourself to get anything below a 100 on homeworks. A good homework average can amount to a slight booster in the end, and you may want to have all the help you can get.
