    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I wouldn't recommend taking this course with Spendier. She would rather the students learn on their own than in class but doesn't reward those who do with easier tests and or a more forgiving grading scale. In the other PES classes, an 80% was an A because those professors understand that Physics is a difficult subject to grasp. In Spendier's, an 80% is a B-. My grade was considered way above average, which proves something is wrong.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a base understanding of physics on Earth, as well as orbits, etc. I feel like I left with a good understanding of what things should look like, but not a great understanding of the math behind it. I am a Game Design major so this was enough for me.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you aren't a big reader like me, do not waste time on the book. Watch her videos, and seek out your own. Her questions do not reward readers.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Fal does a great job of explaining the material in this class. He's explains things in a way that it's easy to understand, and he is always willing to help you after class hours if you need additional help.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that you won't always be given all the information you need in order to complete a problem; however, if you know how to manipulate the data into information that you can use to your benefit, then solving complex problems isn't so bad anymore.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Attend the peer tutoring sessions if you need extra assistance. They help a lot!
