    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course, the teacher is amazing and is more than willing to help. For most of the semester, I struggled with this class, but after contacting the professor everything began to click for me.

    Course highlights:

    With this class being my first college level course, I would say that I have learned how to take notes in big lectures. Taking thorough notes is the main reason I passed this course. Being able to look back at my notes anytime I needed to was a life saver.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this course, you cannot be afraid to ask for help. Whether it is by a professional or just with a group of friends. Asking for help even for things that you think are unimportant will be the best thing that you can do.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you have no previous experience in physics or think that it may be a challenge, sign up for tutoring the first week of class. If you find it easy and you can handle it on your own, you can always drop tutoring or let your tutor know you will not be attending that week.

    Course highlights:

    I am learning to challenge myself. Although I am having trouble grasping some concepts, I am using all the resources available to me to make the best of it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get tutoring right away! If you get behind in one chapter, you may be behind for the rest of the course because the concepts and formulas repeat throughout the course.
