Physics I and II

Blaer, Allan Silver_nugget
Physics I and II

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

I completely disagree with the previous reviews! I find him to be VERY pretentious and arrogant. His lectures are not awe-inspiring as other posters claim.
The curve is insane and the grading is very confusing at best. Beware of students being friends with the graders because it ruins it for the rest of us. This is the classic case of a class that is full of bull***. People rave about him, and I do NOT understand why. I dread going to his lecture every day! And his final is nothing like any of the midterms. Take ANYONE else and save yourself the aggravation.

not to bad BUT don't forget any negative signs because the means are so high that that will mean the difference between letter grades!

Budick, Burton
Physics I and II

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

I really like this professor. I've read the other reviews and while I can't really disagree with a lot that is said, I really enjoyed the classes.

We covered a lot more material than Blair but if you want to get your money's worth and be better prepared for the MCAT then you should really try to learn some physics. If your interested in the topic at all you won't be bored and you'll be challenged. From what I've heard about Blair's class, I would have been bored because he goes very slowly. Although I like that in his approach you don't need a calculator on the tests.

If I had to say something negative about Budick's class it's that you lose way too many point due to math erros than to conceptual erros. Doing math under pressure is not fun. But there's nothing more annoying than doing poorly on a test just because you didn't realize that you forget to change the sign in an equation.

Workload:

Not too bad. Practice practice practice practice the problems all during the semester. That's the secret to doing well in this class.
