    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a required course for many majors, especially for students in CSE. It was a difficult course but not impossible. The professor you get matters and Professor Pawloski was one of the best I've had.

    Course highlights:

    physics 2 is a bit of a continuation of physics 1 and also covered are circuits.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's vital to stay on top of things and do the homework even though it's not graded the questions are very similar to exam questions.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is very understanding of the needs, strengths, and limits of the students and fits his lecturing and teaching style to his students. The course is heavy on calculus and abstract physics concepts such as electromagnetism. It focuses on electric force and fields and magnetic force and fields.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how and why magnets worked. I learned how different types of circuits such RC and LC circuits worked. I also learned mathematical representation of physical concepts such as how to calculate the electric force of a rod with current.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I recommend going to the lecture and reading the textbook. The course is very calculus and concept based. Do the homework and practice problems to get a strong grasp of how to use the math and to prepare for quizzes. Get to know your TAs as well as they will often explain things to you more clearly.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course was challenging due to the abstractness of electricity and magnetism and unless needed for a specific major, is unneeded due to the inability to use the material taught

    Course highlights:

    I understand electricity more but more importantly, this course challenged me and forced me to become proficient in combining concepts on my own to create a better understanding of the course as a whole

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Play attention in class and take good notes but be prepared to spend lots of time struggling through homework
