    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dawber is a pretty terrible teacher, but his tests are very easy. I taught myself this course using khan academy and got a pretty easy A. Homework is a pain.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were his demonstrations. I learned classical physics

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the homework, but also do the practice tests and understand the formula.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course if you take the class with Thomas Hemmick. Unlike other professors, he cares whether the students learn the material or not. He averages the percentile of the final exam with the midterms if the final grades are higher, wanting the student to understand and remember​ the materials.

    Course highlights:

    Take advantage of the 8-hours review sessions. The review helped you learn the materials, even if you haven't paid attention all year. I learned vectors, projectile motion, drag force, kinematics, and Newton's law.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your daily work. If you are in the online course, do the WebAssign homework, watch the punctuated videos, and go to his review sessions. Keep track of yourself. Even though he gives lots of opportunities​ for a good grade, you need to take advantage of these resources.
