This class was tough.
Echols is an alright teacher but the course is rough! I would say much harder than PHYS 132 and 141. And Echols tests are pretty hard so you have to study A LOT. Also, he makes you get and online subscription for MateringPhysics which costs like $70 and thats where you do your homework. He usually assigns homework once a week but you can't do it all in one day and some of the homeworks are pretty hard. Overall, would not recommend. try getting someone easier, like Glazer.
You main basically all about electrics fields at first and there's SO MANY freaking equations. Then you learn about circuits and resistors and batteries which isn't that bad. Then you learn about magnets and that's pretty much it. (Make sure you know how to do calculus.)

Advice for students:
Study as much as you can for the Midterms. Take advantage of the extra credit on the homeworks. (You may need it later.)
