This class was tough.
The physics department has a bad reputation at UNT and now I understand why. Aside from physcis being a challgening course and requiring a lot of time for studying, the actual test and question answers were sometimes wrong. This caused major confusion and I found myself emailing my professor more often than not. At the end of the semester our class got a huge curve and I could imagine it was because the TA made so many grading mistakes throughout the year. I plan to take physics 2 at the local community college online.
The only highlights of this course were that I enjoyed the conceptual questions and answers provided by the textbook. You learn things that apply to your life, and if you plan to go into medicine. As for the professor and the class itself... I didn't learn anything. What I learned is how to teach myself physics.

Advice for students:
Go to class, do the homework, do all of the extra credit, visit office hours so the professor knows you personally, and question everything. If you think an answer marked wrong is right, you are probably right. Study conceptual examples in the powerpoints and the book, make a quizlet, understand vocab term, and know how to use formulas for solve word problems. In the end I made an A but it was a lot of hard work and a curve that got me there. without the curve I would've made a B-.
