    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because of how well explained and cool physics can be

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were the experiments and explanations that Jackson gave in class

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go over as many problems from the book before the tests

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Hated Physics, worked really hard in this class but lab TA was nice (lucky me) so I got an A at the end

    Course highlights:

    Really hard to understand anything.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to free tutoring, they help with HW. Extremely helpful. Cut off is basically really high (low 80)

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend it because it is highly necessary to know "mechanics" or the movement of simple objects in order to advance in physics, engineering, chemistry, astronomy, and many other majors. It is also interesting to learn about the movement of falling objects among other things.

    Course highlights:

    The course teaches the most basic knowledge of how things around us move. We may not think in equations but it can help solve many real-life situations only with the conceptual knowledge learned.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Have a good foundation in algebra and maybe even calculus. The farther ahead in calculus the easier this course will seem.
