    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great course if you can go to office hours and clear up any questions you might have. It is easy to get lazy as you realize there will be a curve due to the hard to grasp aspects of the subject, but if you intend to take Quantum Mechanics it's better to really understand what you're doing in this class first.

    Course highlights:

    Sheldon really cares about his students and attempts to teach to them by using a lot of class participation (he calls on everyone in turn). We spent a lot of time on schroedingers equation.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Office hours are helpful. If they don't work for you, meet up with someone else to try to figure out questions. A lot of people fall into the trap of using solutions and turning in assignments they don't completely understand.
