    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend this course for the faint of heart, but for someone that not only needs the credit, but craves a challenge, this course is perfect. It enables the student to discover the deeper working of everyday things that may have been taken for granted before; heat, electricity, magnets, and circuits.

    Course highlights:

    About halfway through the semester, the professor dropped a bomb on my concept of existence itself. He said that, yes, we were learning about our topics in terms of particles and matter, but that in reality the driving force behind the interactions is all wave based. This forced me to understand that all physical reactions can be described in terms of energy, and actually should be to be understood correctly. To me, this was game changing.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course, you need a solid understanding of Calculus 3 (don't take it concurrently if you can help it). As far as studying goes, try to find free online courses from Harvard or MIT on the subject as a reference. They often explain the material in a simpler way that contains more visual aids, which is imperative when undertaking a course that is this conceptually challenging.
