    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course itself was alright, but the lectures weren't nearly as prominent as they should have been. The instructor, Dr. Gea-Banacloche, is a quirky and funny individual, but his lecture skills are anything but helpful. He goes through material way too fast and doesn't answer questions in class. The only reason why this course got 3 stars is because of the TAs that are there to help. The Physics Library is one of the best resources that I've used on the University of Arkansas campus and exactly what you NEED to use if you're taking University Physics I. They are angels sent from heaven.

    Course highlights:

    The best parts of the course are the long nights I spent trying to figure problems out. The problems can be very vague and is usually only helpful if you go to tutoring hours in the Physics Library.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    If you're gonna take this class, don't ever skip the lecture, because the professor takes attendance. On top of this, make a good connection with the TAs that work there.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Take good notes, and use the powerpoints. The lectures aren't too helpful, because he reads his slides word for word. I learned a lot in lab though, so don't miss those. Also, there are friday extra help classes you can go to if you need extra practice, and you can ask the TA in charge questions.

    Course highlights:

    Keep up with when the homework is due. There are usually 2 open response, and 1 multiple choice homework a week, or vice versa depending if there is a test. Study for the tests! If you grade doesn't look amazing percentage wise, it's okay, his grade scale is curved, and he takes out a lot of your low scores at the end.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You will need some way to keep a good schedule, and don't procrastinate!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    UP1 at Arkansas is extremely organized. If you show up and do all of the homework you'll learn the subject and get an A.

    Course highlights:

    85% is an A. 5% of your grade comes from clicker quizzes in lecture. I decided right up front I wasn't going to lecture at 8:30 but did all the homework thoroughly and got 100% on the first three tests. I got an A and I got to sleep in and I learned a ton.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the homework. They quickly post the solutions so if you lose points go through and make sure you understand the content. 5-6 I lost points on the homework but the key was wrong and I went to my TA and got it corrected.
