This class was tough.
In this course a student can expect to gain a better understanding on transmission line effects, Coulomb's Law, Ampere's Law, Maxwell's Law, Biot-Savart Law, and electromagnetic waves. This course will have you solving for vector quantities such as electric fields, magnetic fields and currents. You will also be expected to solve for the voltage or capacitance for a sphere, cylinder, and plates of charge as a function of distance.
The course did not have too much work. Besides weekly homework, there were only two tests and a final. Although I never took advantage of it, attendance was not taken. I learned that with transmission lines, voltage and current does not follow Ohm's Law usually until time approaches infinity. I also learned how magnetic and electric fields interact with each other.

Advice for students:
I would recommend to anyone considering this course to start strong. I found myself struggling to bring myself up after bombing the first test. This course required quite a bit of self teaching because the material did not make sense the first time I heard it from the professor. With that being said, I would also recommend that those considering this course should try to get ahead on the material because much more of what the professor is teaching will make sense.
