Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend Pc 211 largely because it is a challenging course that will push students to excellence. Especially with the right teacher, the course can be quite enjoyable with many real life examples and hands on experiences in the lab. It plainly illustrates many concepts pertaining to electricity, light, magnetism, and much more.
The greatest benefit I received from taking this course would be that my problem solving skills (especially mathematically) increased greatly. The homework and tests are all designed to make you think around things theoretically in order to apply the math correctly.

Advice for students:
Practice your algebra and calculus heavily in variables. Solving for an unknown is absolutely critical in many, many cases. When doing homework, make sure to work it out this way. In the lab, keep all of your data neatly organized and write out any confusing steps carefully on a piece of scratch paper. This will help immensely when writing a lab report.
