    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I tell you I've never been in a course so interesting but actually challenging for me. I enjoyed a lot of what we did but what I thought was the best part of the class was the professor. I've never met just a straight-shooter type of person in my life, Dr. Hogan was just a fantastic professor to have who gave not only lessons on Newton, but lessons and general philosophy of being a live in the world we are today. I am grateful to have had a professor as wise and funny as he and I truly hope I get more Dr. Hogan's in my academic career.

    Course highlights:

    You learn pretty much everything about classical physics, from Newton's laws, motion, linear motion, 3D motion, heat, sound, energy and momentum. It was a pretty comprehensive course and in general well at least for me it was fairly challenging but a good kind, nothing to be afraid of the work wasn't easy nor was it impossible.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Ask for help. If you really need don't understand something Hogan said because believe me he says a lot, just ask and you shall receive. Also, keep your chin up, you're going to need to put time into this course, like I said earlier it's not a breeze but it's not the end of everything.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Hogan allows the student many opportunities to practice the skills learned in class. He is fair when it comes to grading and class participation, excellent at explaining concepts when needed to, and willing to help any student with any issue in the class.

    Course highlights:

    First and foremost I gained knowledge about physics. I enjoyed the demonstrations in class about the topics being discussed, and the work we had to do.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't disregard the homework. It's practice time to better attain the skills you should know. Be ready to work hard, because you earn the grade you get.
