    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    With it being a required course for engineers across the board at A&M, you're going to want a good professor. Rupak Mahapatra was the professor for me over the summer and he is probably the best professor the physics department has to offer. He is more than willing to work one on one with students, and as long as you show you are putting in the effort he will be there to answer any questions you have. His slide shows are also very concise but thorough and will help you understand even the more difficult concepts in the course.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the course would have to be learning all the different ways things move in the real world and the reasoning behind it all. It puts a fresh concept in how you see things in your everyday life.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get in study groups and really try to understand the material at its core concept. If you just try to learn shortcuts, you are guaranteed to get a question wrong on the final. Also be sure to note the learning objectives and what exactly you are being tested on so you know what to show that you know how to do on the exam.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you don't have to take it, don't take it but if you have to, you can do alright as long as you put in a put in the proper time and effort into the class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the depths of projectile motion, circular motion and free fall mainly.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I recommend attempting the recitation problems by yourself before you show up to recitation. For me, the homework problems didn't help much for the test but go to the free physics tutoring if you need help with anything. Grad students will help you with homework, practice problems, go over tests, etc. Another thing, go to office hours if you need help or at the very least, go after a test and ask why you got questions wrong. Sometimes the professor will give you points back because the grader was too harsh. Last thing, do the textbook problems. They help a ton when it comes to preparing for the tests.
