    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor seems difficult at first but in the end you will realize he was exactly the kind of professor you needed.

    Course highlights:

    The professor insists on students knowing concepts completely and the inner workings of what is going on. This way of teaching will continue to help you through all classes following.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Focus. Study. Succeed. This is the class and professor that truly wakes students up to the fact that they're in college.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a very rigorous course. The professor goes at a very fast pace and studying several hours a week is a must. If you enjoy challenging yourself, I'd recommend it.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was the lab section, as the hands-on learning was very interesting. It was definitely a huge part in my understanding of the material. My lab TA was a huge help.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study at least 3 hours every week, and make sure you understand a section before you move on to another. It all builds on each other. Form study groups. That was beyond helpful for me.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is really knowledgeable about the material, but if you have no background with any Physics taken in high school or elsewhere, you may have a hard time understanding the concepts and theories that he constantly addresses. I never had a Physics class prior to taking his course, and although I managed a C for a final grade, enduring the entire semester confused and lost [for the most part] was tough. It will take long nights of Physics homework and diligence with studying the concepts and theories to achieve the grade that you really want. And word through the grapevine is that it's like this for most Phsyics professors anyways, so be prepared for a whole lot if you want/have to take this class!

    Course highlights:

    In hindsight, I didn't learn much other than basic physical concepts that you learn in middle school. I have since changed my major to pursue film -- a huge leap, I know. But the highlight of the course is finally walking out of the final exam; whether you feel like you passed it or not, you know that it's over and done with. ALSO, the lab section that comes with the course involves a lot of group work, which eases the heavy load. It's a chance to meet other people in the class that struggle along with you! :-)

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Not much for studying other than: listen to everything the professor says, even if you can't make out some of the words. Try your best in everything. There's going to be many -- and I mean MANY -- times that you want to give up and relax, which sometimes is okay. But never allow it to affect your performance in the course, because all it takes is one bad assignment or one bad choice to start a domino effect, since the material seems to progressively pile on top of the previous concepts.
