    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Even though this is labeled as a "general physics I" course, be prepared with at least calculus I before you take this course. I was taking calculus I and this course concurrently which worked for a little while and then I had to take a break from physics so that I could understand the math concepts from calculus I. There's also a lot of information covered which is both good and bad since it can be easy to get lost. Personally, I found Steve Pollock to be kind of dry and not super comprehensive. I could understand what he was saying but I found myself using Khan Academy more to understand the concepts than his lectures. In the end, if you're looking for an in depth intro general physics course, this might be the one for you.

    Course highlights:

    Some of the live demonstrations were nice and the notes are helpful when you're trying to get through a section quickly.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    As I've mentioned before, Khan Academy really helped me understand the concepts better than a lot of the lectures in this course. That's most likely because Khan Academy cuts to the chase and gives you the formulas which works better for me. Other than that, be prepared to spend a lot of time studying this course to understand it.
