PHYS II

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Physics in Columbia is not easy, but it's easy to get a good grade if you take with Professor Tuts. I agree with some of the reviews that Professor Tuts gives challenging exams and he does not really explain how to solve the problems. I never went to his office hours, so I don't know if he's approachable or not. But, his lectures are absolutely the repeats of the textbook. There is no point of going to the class because you would not learn how to solve the problem. I would rather prefer him doing more problem solving than repeating the textbook.
Overall, take this class if you are too busy to go to class, and if you are desparate to get an A.
I didn't go to class half of the semester, and still do above the average on his exams. If you are above the average, your grade is like B+ or A- .

Workload:

Optional problem sets. ( I recommend that you do the examples from the textbook than the assigned problem sets--Textbook examples really helped me to understand the concept better)
