This class was tough.
Course Overview:
If you care about knowing your stuff, Catala is definitely the professor to take. He will make your life miserable with complicated problem, but, seriously, is there a physics problem that doesn't make you want to pull your hair? He will help you a lot, and he gives a lot of extra credit. Physics is hard for everyone, even great physicists. Try to understand rather than remember. Study 15 minstrel after class by going over what you've just learned. It will help you tremendously.
Course highlights:
Catala is a fun professor and he will make physics agradable in the mornings.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
This course is important, and it will change the way you see things. Therefore, study and research. If you show commitment to catala class, he will help you a lot.

Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
The professor makes sure that his students react and understand his classes. Catalan offers office hours everyday after school. The teacher also gives his students many extra credit opportunities to help them increase their grades.
Course highlights:
I learned Kinematics, Dynamics, Work & Energies, Rotational Dynamics, and Gravitation. I learned both the concepts and their many applications. As I did the labs, I became more familiar to applying the concepts to real life situations. I also learned to create a relationship with the class and the professor because the help of others will always be needed to succeed in college, as well as in life.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
It is important to know the professors that you get for your classes. Also, after class stay for 20 more minutes to reflect on what you just learned, and it will save you 4 hours of late night studying. Last piece of advise, read the book.
