    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is the second half of the physics requirement for the the medical college acceptance test, and it is therefore extremely important to cover all the material in class that will be on the exam.

    Course highlights:

    This course introduces the math and physics behind electricy, magnetism, relativity, optics, waves, atom models, radiation, the electro-magnetic spectrum, and more. The real fun, naturally, lies in the labs. We accelerated electrons in class!

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared. There is alot of reading and it all has to be done. The exams are tricky, but if you complete all the homework and study it obsessively, you will do fine.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Wimbush is a great teacher. He is funny and I enjoyed how he would use analogies to explain concepts. His exams are not unreasonable. He hands out homework with problems very similar to those that appear on the tests

    Course highlights:

    Some topics that were covered in this course were magnetism, wavelengths/ optical problems, and modern physics. My highlight was learning about nuclear physics. It expanded on some of the concepts I was introduced to in chemistry.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Although attendance is not mandatory coming to class is important. Anything that he goes over in lecture could appear on exams. He also goes over the homework problems in class if asked.
