    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was difficult because in the lectures the course material that was being taught was not taught in a way that was understandable to non engineering majors. When questions were asked in the course or someone asked something to be explained, the topic was explained in exactly the same way as the first time which caused confusion from the beginning.

    Course highlights:

    From this course I learned necessary formulas that would be used in my other premedical school prerequisites. The highlights of this course were that the professor was extremely amicable.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the material before the class, take notes throughly in class, do your homework by yourself, and try to find someone who took the course in the past so that you can study their past examinations.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is difficult to begin with. With Professor Gersten it is easy to see that he is very passionate about the subject, however, if you do not read the textbook ahead of time, his lectures will not be very helpful. He talks a lot directly to the board, but towards the end of the semester he began to use a projector and lectured facing the students, which improved the lecture tenfold.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were that the material was more or less straight forward and it gave me a better understanding of the basic physics that I had learned previously. I learned to think about each question from several different sides, which eventually helped improve my exam scores.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the chapters before going to the lectures. Do the homework on your own. Do practice questions from the textbook that are one and two stars of difficulty in order to practice for the exams.
