    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Dorfman is passionate and brilliant. However, as a life science major, the course was way too challenging and detailed. The course expects life science students (who probably will not apply deep physics knowledge in their future career) to apply concepts vigorously. Exams consist of challenging questions that combine multiple topics, not to mention that the topics are hard enough by themselves. Since we can hardly perceive and visualize magnetic field and electricity, a strong foundation in math is required to understand its workings. Life science students typically lack this foundation, so the tests may seem too demanding, and the coursework may be too time-consuming.

    Course highlights:

    I gained an ability to deal with stress in this course. I have learned the basic workings of magnetic field and electricity and have been forced to attempt to apply them on the tests.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go over the weekly discussion worksheets and past exams. Ask professors and TAs to clarify a confusing point as soon as possible since the course is extremely cumulative. Basic concepts snowball into complicated ones. When doing practice problems, focus on thoroughly understanding the concepts behind them as opposed to memorizing lots of solutions to random problems.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Waung is currently my favorite professor at UCLA and I feel like he cares about his students. He teaches in the summer but puts a lot of effort. He teaches at a great pace and performs experiments and cracks jokes in the class from time to time. Of course, each student has to work hard to get a good grade, but he makes it easy to do that with all of the resources he provides.

    Course highlights:

    One of the best parts of this course was being able to keep to speed with all the notes. Usually, professors just zoom on by, but Waung teaches at a good pace. I learned a lot more in depth knowledge on physics in waves, simple harmonic motions, springs, and much more.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class every day and you should be fine. If you don't understand a topic, make sure to go to his office hours. Other than that, just do a decent amount of studying and you should be fine.
