    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is required for SEAS majors, but I think that even students in CC could benefit from the challenges and deeper understanding that the course provides. I found this course to be an excellent introduction to college level physics.

    Course highlights:

    This course was very challenging, but it taught me a lot. Taking it early in your college career means that you are not only learning the material, but you are also learning how to study it. Professor Zajc helps tremendously with the latter by making himself very available to help students with anything they need. Professor Zajc is thorough, and he makes sure that he is answering every question. He takes his time to make sure that everyone understands a concept or a demonstration, so be sure to speak up if you are having trouble understanding something.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book and go to class. Ask questions, and try your hardest on the problem sets. Work on the problem sets and don't just get the answers from other people, and go over the problems more than once. Review lecture notes and practice problems, and you will do well.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Zajc is a nice professor but he spends a bit too much deriving the formulas rather than sample problems.

    Course highlights:

    Learned introductory concepts of physics

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do a lot of practice problems in preparation for the test.
