    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the teacher helps you apply physics to everyday life and allows you to see how you can use physics in the future. It is not just obscure theory, but is applicable to current events.

    Course highlights:

    One highlight of the course is that physics is applicable to everyday life.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be ready to participate in class, as there isn't a lot of work outside of the class to earn grades and learn.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it's a very interesting class and the things you learn in this class you can apply to many things other than physics. Also, if you're interested in becoming a doctor you should definitely take this class to prepare for the MCAT in college.

    Course highlights:

    A highlight of the course for me was really exceeding my own expectations in terms of how well I did in the class. I was really sure that this class was going to be super hard and would take a lot of work but if you just pay attention and class and take good notes you'll be fine. Of course you should always study for every test though. We learned about kinematics, rotational motion, dynamics, conservation laws, mechanical waves and sound, and electrostatics.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in class, take notes, do all the homework so you can do well on the quizzes, and do the study guide for every single test. You may have to do the study guide multiple times like I do to get an A in the course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a challenging science course and isn't for anyone looking for an easy A.

    Course highlights:

    This course is lab based which really helps with concept comprehension.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't wait to study until the night before the test.
