Pretty easy, overall.
I would recommend this course because although it is a difficult subject, Mr. Swaney devotes his time to teach students--he even posted videos on Youtube for kids who want a more in depth tutorial.
The best part about Physics is getting a more thorough meaning of how the world works and why it works that way. I learned that repetition is key to passing his class. He will assign a worksheet due by the end of the period, but will walk us through half of it, while the other half is what he would call "a repeat." Afterwards, completing up to four or five, he would then create quiz "fakies"--which are fake quiz versions that contain the same steps as the worksheets. Overall, he makes learning fun, especially when you're the one catching him make mistakes.

Advice for students:
I would only recommend this course for those of you who WANT to learn and who have a higher math course than Algebra I, otherwise, this course is going to be painful. There are some in my class who claim the class to be hard, but it's just because they would rater spend the whole period talking and not bother to learn. If you do decide to take the course, take notes (on everything). It really helps if you're a multi-tasker and can write down what the teacher(s) says.
