Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Being in the honors program offers many courses to challenge you in different ways than the standard courses, and PHY2061 is no different. Professor Saab introduces the same material as every other physics 2 class, but shows you unique and interesting ways to apply these concepts.
The highlight of these course was a cumulative presentation at the end of the year on different "mind-bending" toys that use different concepts in physics to present a seemingly impossible action. My group presented on a top that didn't stop spinning for weeks once it started. Learning about how these devices work shows how physics can be used as "magic" if used correctly.

Advice for students:
Make sure that you actually read and understand the book during the reading and annotating assignments, even though the annotation can be a bit tedious. This will help you to understand the homework much better. His office hours are extremely helpful if you were struggling with a concept, and he greatly helps to walk you through the process. Make sure to study the material outside of the classroom for a few hours a week. The quizzes aren't going to be on examples that you saw in class, but rather the material and conceptual understanding that you should have locked into your brain.
