    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    If you're a pre-health major then this is the course for you! If you're not a Physics major, there is no need to take 140, unless you love calculus and crying (what I've heard). It is quite an easy A and fulfills your requirement for Med, Dent, Pharm, Etc.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of the this course was of course the professor. Lively individual with a unique personality that makes rows and rows of equations kind of fun. Also, lots of bonus demonstrations in class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    PRACTICE EXAMS, PRACTICE EXAMS, PRACTICE EXAMS. Do them and you should easily get an A. Each exam has at least 5-8 REPEATED questions from previous years' exams.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a very reasonable course if you put in the time and effort to do well.

    Course highlights:

    The basic concepts of physics are applicable to almost any health career you will go into.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always use the resources they give you. The physics help room is completely underused for how much you can gain from the around the clock tutors in there.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    If you're a student familiar with hard science courses, you are guaranteed an A in this class. Professor Lau is very adamant on giving ample chances to get a good grade, even if physics isn't your forte. The homework, while tedious, gives you an incredible buffer regardless of your exam scores. The exams themselves are based on practice exams and you are able to write out any relevant formulas and practice problems to use on the exams. I doubt I will ever come across another class that puts learning ahead of getting the grade, especially at the University of Michigan, but I would highly recommend this class.

    Course highlights:

    I personally thought that with the pressure to get a good grade off my shoulders, I could really invest in learning the material for what it was and gained a new appreciation of physics. I especially loved the simplicity of the first exam material and found the applicability extremely interesting.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Practice exams are the absolute best way to study for exams. In addition, the coursepack isn't all that helpful as it contains a lot of extra information, however, I would try to find any other physics textbook, there are plenty online, and use that to understand the concepts if necessary. While the "daily homework" is based on the coursepack, understanding the material from a different textbook may be useful.
