    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    You will learn a lot of information through real examples that will stick with you. The experiments also help to further your knowledge on the subject matter and allow for some hands on experience.

    Course highlights:

    The teacher gave great examples on how to apply formulas and explained the theories perfectly. The experiments provide an additional way to understand the course material and give real examples of how to use what you have learned.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go in with an open mind and be willing to take in and understand the material. Also be prepared to bend your mind for the homework as it requires a real understanding of the subject matter.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It's required for a lot of engineering majors but there's a lot of homework. Most of it isn't too difficult but it can be time consuming and a little dull. Personally, I found it fast paced (though my professor insisted he was moving "slow").

    Course highlights:

    Niraj is super excited to teach and loves helping his students though he can work on his pacing. You learn everything you learned in high school physics but at a higher level.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    do all the checkpoints, prelectures, and homework on time! Take notes on the prelectures before lecture.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class set up doesn't favor continuous learning. Choppy set up compared to the same course taught by other professors. You take notes on subjects that are over three chapters ahead of the homework you have due that same day. However, the teacher means well and listens to feedback from students, which suggests general improvement following this semester.

    Course highlights:

    The lectures involved a lot of student feedback, which was helpful when you needed to revisit a confusing subject or question. The exams were curved to match the other classes exam's averages. Xian Wu did in class examples and explanations that were helpful for understanding.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take detailed notes of the lectures online. One of the biggest tips is to make sure to write down every single practice and homework problem fully with diagrams and equations. This method helps a lot when trying to get ready for the exams.
