    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is very demanding, the professor is hard to hear at times, but if you do your work and attend class, the course is very fun, there are a lot of demos, which are awesome!

    Course highlights:

    Learned a lot about Force Body Diagrams, Force Diagrams, and how to apply calculus to the real world.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to do your homework and read the book ahead of time, if you don't you will not do very well later on in the course. The first test is the easiest ones, but the rest are super hard! The hardest part is that all the materials you learn in the beginning will be applied throughout the whole semester, so don't just study the night before an exam, take the time to fully understand the material. Also go to office hours! He is actually a really great professor.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class is amazing, the professor is the most straight forward guy I know. He tells you whats going to be on the exam and to learn these specific topics and he doesn't throw curve balls at you. He actually wants you to succeed and his office hours are flexible. The labs are a little complicated though, however he has no control of how they are structured.

    Course highlights:

    The best part about this course was that most of the students in there are STEM majors so you will run into some familiar faces. I learned a lot about physics, which is a subject I had always struggled with but now I excel in it thanks to Cerrutti.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to every lab and don't miss any. Even if you have an exam close to the time of lab. The lab grade is a big chunk overall so don't half a** it. I struggled in lab and got through it for the most part. You will use Excel and Capstone on the computers in lab so become familiar with both in the first couple labs quickly.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is a fundamental class for engineering students, and Nick Cerruti is the absolute best professor at WSU to take this class from. He is very intelligent and helpful, and always has creative and interesting demonstrations to help with understanding.

    Course highlights:

    Newtons laws, forces, dynamic systems, momentum, free body diagrams, real world problems, friction, projectile motion, energy, density, rotational dynamics, work, and more. There is a lab every week, be prepared to do some cool experiments and get a better understanding of the physical world around us.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed, ask lots of questions. You must have a basic understanding of first year calculus, and algebra. The lab is one of the best place to gain understanding of how and why the formulae work. Make sure you do the homework, it is a lot of work, but it will be a majority of what is on the exams.
