    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Abernathy can be tough at times, but he is far from boring. His classes were always enjoyable. He has a way of making complex material easier to understand. He does not a review sheet for his tests, so they can be quite challenging. I managed to make an A on almost all of his tests by going through all of the assigned homework problems and reviewing all of the problems we did in class (he often puts those on the test).

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed mechanical problems the most. Physics is my favorite subject because it shows you how things actually work. Physics lab was the best. Lab often involved balancing objects, throwing objects, and dropping objects and using physics to predict outcomes.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Abernathy doesn't teach calculus-based physics even though that's what he's supposed to be teaching. This can be really problematic later on if you're majoring in engineering or any STEM-related field. If you do decide to take this class, just know that it's doable but difficult. Keep up with the work and start studying for the tests at LEAST a week before hand and you should be alright.
