    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If possible, DO NOT take it with Koch. He will fail half of the class. Take with Hemmick, a much better professor. For context, i took 131 with koch and got a C. Retook with hemmick the next semester for an A.

    Course highlights:

    Very good basic entry understanding into physics. Good for engineering, but Premeds should take the lower track

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Again, don't take it with Koch. Study and do all of the online assignments. Class is cake.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who is interested in physics, or just science in general. Professor Hemmick is one of the best professors I have ever had; he is very dedicated to his students, and honestly is excited to teach the material. He is able to make learning physics very enjoyable and fun.

    Course highlights:

    After taking this course, I had a very good knowledge of basic physics topics, including kinematics, forces, circular motion, energy, mechanics, simple harmonics motion, waves, fluids, and thermodynamics.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to watch all of the extra credit videos! Not only do they award you with extra points, but they are one of the best ways to study for the midterms and final.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Hemmick is a wonderful teacher. I was unsure about him at first, but his expectations of students are very reasonable, and he pushes students to excel. I ended up doing very well in his class, but what I learned from the experience was worth more than a good grade.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about aspects of physics that I could apply to other courses I was taking, and future courses I will be taking. The best part of the course other than the professor was being able to review the lectures using Echo360.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Follow all of Professor Hemmick's advice, and do as many practice problems as you can! A lot of material is available to you - use it.
