    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I had to take this class for my major, as I assume it will be for all my fellow engineering majors. I can't say don't take it because you need these credits for the major, and the concepts are important enough to learn, but it also isn't taught well.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how newtonian mechanics worked and about the force of gravity. Some of the demos in the class are very interesting

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the text book, it is more helpful than the lectures and discussions are. You may not ever need to crack it open, but in order to solve the problems and do well on the midterms give it a look.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Helpful, interesting lecturer with solid advice in every section in the book. He has interesting examples and videos to show how physics applies to the real world.

    Course highlights:

    Manoj Kaplinghat is definitely my favorite part of the course, he tries to keep all of his lectures interesting, and he is always able to make the class less stressful. The physical examples he is willing to do are also very helpful.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to attend all the classes, and do all the homework. The homework is similar to the class's exams, so if you're well practiced, you should have no problem performing well.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Whiteson is a great professor who keeps the class rolling through the boring concepts while also making the difficult ones engaging and interesting. His tests can be very difficult, but he grades accordingly and nobody ends up with unfair grades.

    Course highlights:

    The Tests (although very a hard) were rewarding and actually felt like tests. You didn't just blindly answer questions out of the book, for the most part they were questions that forced you to apply concepts you learned in new ways. His lectures were also great, lighthearted and funny yet insightful and informative.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    DO THE HOMEWORK. I know a lot of people didn't, because it's not that big a portion of your grade, but if you don't do it you'll be screwed on the test.
