    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a great course of future engineers and Physics majors.

    Course highlights:

    I gained basic knowledge of how this world works. I learned how to think of the world in different ways (this is no joke)

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just go to lecture and attend all the recitations. That's truly what you need. There were some students that weren't too math confident and they did just fine.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is required for most engineering or physics majors, but whether it counts directly toward your degree or not it is a very interesting and involved course that will teach you a lot about how the world works. Also, Professor Stetzer shows unmatched enthusiasm for the subject which is a real motivation to excel.

    Course highlights:

    If you're interested in why the things around you happen the way they do, this will be a very interesting course for you. The biggest highlight is definitely spending time in the lab and putting laws and equations to work in real life situations. The best way to learn a science is to see it happen in reality.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not be afraid to ask for help if you don't understand something. Physics is a complicated subject, and no one is expected to understand it by attending a lecture twice a week. There are plenty of professors and teacher's assistants who are happy to help you with anything you don't quite understand.
