    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it is what a typical college science class looks like. The lecture hall is big, but it's your responsibility to ask questions when you need help.

    Course highlights:

    A major highlight of this course was lab time. I learned a lot about how to work with one other person, rather than in a huge group. The one-on-one contact prepared me for work in the real world.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    This is a hard class, even if you took AP physics in high school. With about every hour in class, you should study three hours outside of class, because there is a lot of homework and the exams are tough.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it actually deals with the outside world instead of just the theoretical one.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to derive formulas just by looking at a word problem.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to study each day for this class because it is a quick-paced class and the exams may seem far off for you to procrastinate but do not. It is wise to stay ahead of the game.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it to incoming freshman because it is not like the AP/IB courses held in high school and it gives you time to catch up and understand the basics of physics before tackling on harder classes.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were going to the lectures and listening to the professor's interesting examples as he taught us the fundamentals of physics with comical, visual representation as well as having a flexible schedule to help students who are confused about certain topics.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always study for this class daily because it moves at a fast pace and there are no do overs.
