    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr Lewis is overall a very good teacher. He knows what he is talking about and can explain it well to those who aren't familiar with the topic. He is often available for questions after class, via email, or during his office hours.

    Course highlights:

    I really enjoyed how well this physics course lined up with the calculus I was learning. It was interesting learning a new topic but seeing the familiar math behind t all.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all the reading and homework he assigns, it's there for a reason. The practice exams he offers are a great study tool.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I have a neutral stance on PY 205 because the material is very much needed in everyday life. However, it is a super hard class that is fast pace. There are a lot of pros and cons to this particular class.

    Course highlights:

    A little sad to say, but my highlight of the course was getting out of it and finding out that I didn't have to retake it. There were small victories in between the tests. I learned not to procrastinate and that I need to buckle down and really devote mind, body, and soul into physics if I want to do better well in that subject.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    You must study. Everybody says that, I know. But seriously, STUDY! Unless you are a super genius who has tested out of every possible class, you must learn how to study Physics. It is extremely hard to sit down with a book and read physics. Be open to adjusting your schedule and study habits because that's what I learned that I had to do to make it out with a decent grade. I learned that late in the semester and I suffered mentally for it. So, my advice to you is to stay away from website that show the answers and exactly how to do the proper calculations if you haven't tried figuring it out for yourself. I thought I could use the easy way out for my homework and come back to the material before the exams. Don't do what I did. Frankly, there's just not enough time in between tests to re-learn something twice, especially with the other classes you have in your course load.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Hong Wang is literally my favorite professor here. Even though she has an accent, she will help you succeed in this course.

    Course highlights:

    Kinematics equations are big and Newton's laws and stuff. Her demonstrations are helpful and stuff.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read ahead and do the webassigns. Do the practice test but don't rely on them too much since tests are hella crazy
