    | Would not recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Spent all semester chasing an electron around an imaginary box. Added another electron the last couple weeks.

    Course highlights:

    Fancy calculus tricks, and how operators work.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't. But if you do, read up on calculus tips and tricks. Study previous tests for the final. Check answers with the professor when possible - the book is often wrong.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was very difficult as it required you to know and remember your calculus. I hadn't taken calculus in 2 years, so when she would expect us to derive equations I was completely lost. I highly recommend making sure that you have a mastery of derivations and possibly also of physics before starting this course.

    Course highlights:

    In this course I learned that you really need to find friends in the math and engineering departments. There is a lot of physics and calculus and it can be really overwhelming. I also learned to take a second to breath because you will be overwhelmed at some point.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely review your math and physics and maybe attempt to buddy up with a graduate student, because they're also taking the course with you. Also remember to breath, it's overwhelming but don't let it completely overtake you.
