Great Intro to the Subject
This class was tough.
The class is a very important introduction into the world of Physics. It is designed to introduce you to basic terms and ideas for the rest of your Physics career. The only thing though is that the professor isn't very good. He makes it extremely hard to understand the material and explains things in ways that don't make much sense for first-time physics students. A lot of reading and discussion sections are necessary to do well in the class.
The best part about this class is that you get to learn the basics that all physicists depend on. This includes everything from forces and Newtons laws to energy and gravity.

Advice for students:
Always make sure to keep up with the suggested practice problems and to do them before any of the discussion sections. That way, you can easily focus on what requires more of your time and attention to succeed. Make sure to ask the TAs frequently if you have any questions because Sharma will not be able to answer your questions clearly.
