    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Take this class if you are truly interested in becoming an engineer or physicist. To this day the 230 physics series at this school have been the most challenging classes I have ever taken, you must be prepared to spend hours a day studying for this class if you wish to pass and take something away from it. Once you have completed these courses I promise it will be worth it, you will have a different mindset on everything that you learn.

    Course highlights:

    You become a much better student, once completed you are prepared to spend hours on your education and you have developed useful tools to take with you into upper division course work. You learn to derive things such as inertia and gravitational force, so now you dont have to worry about memorizing the right equation, you can just derive it on your own!

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    You must be prepared to study study study. Don't be shy! Ask for help as soon as you need it, which I guarantee will be very early on in the semester.
