Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course is not that much harder than the regular sequence, but do not get me wrong, there is some difficult material. The one thing that is tedious about the class are the long lab reports. However, it will help your scientific writing in the long run. Also, the TA's are very good at their job; I was able to understand all the material within the course because they enjoy teaching and were able to make things clear.
First of all, the professor gives donuts after every exam, which is great. Also, the professor would give breaks within each lecture, so that if anyone got lost or just has a question, one could just go up to him and talk with him. The class incorporates special relativity which now, is not that hard to work with.

Advice for students:
Try not to procrastinate when it comes to typing up your lab reports because they can get pretty long sometimes. Also, if you are the type of person that prefers do learn on your own, then go ahead and do so, but do not be ashamed if you have to got to office hours. The majority of the class goes to office hours.
