    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Harton knows a lot about physics, but is not great at teaching it in a manner for students who do not understand it. If you have a really good understanding of physics, then you might do alright, but if you do not know physics before going into his class, it will be very difficult.

    Course highlights:

    During my time in his class, I learned the most when I was taking the recitation course and lab, the TA's were really good and knew how to relay information much more clearly.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice would be to go to all the lectures and go to the tutoring hall to really learn everything the best.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The professor for this course is extremely smart, almost too smart. When he talks in class he usually assumes everyone can think, process and move as quickly as he can with the problems (even though this is physics one...) Harton has a lot of knowledge to offer about physics, its just hard to grasp it all in such a short block of time. I swear sometimes I thought when he was talking it was being fast forwarded. I passed with a good grade unlike some of my classmates, my recommendation, READ THE TEXT BOOK, like its your new religion.

    Course highlights:

    The biggest thing I gained from this corse wasn't physics related. This course taught me how I learn, and what I need to succeed. With a professor that's insanely smart and moves at the speed of light you have to rely on your self to help fill in the blanks from lecture. I had to read the chapters from the text book word for word, highlight all of the important equations and info, watch Harton's videos and get help from tutors.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get help, make a study group, read the text book, do the homework and do not let your self get behind. This class moves extremely fast.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The lecture pace is too fast, and we flew through at least 3 chapters a month.

    Course highlights:

    I passed, but just barley. It taught me to value tutoring, office hours and practice test questions.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Always study notes the day of lecture, go to office hours and get tutoring. At least 15 hours a week of work is needed to pass with an A.
