Conrad, Janet Silver_nugget
[PHYS C1001] Physics for Poets I

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

If you are looking for an easy class just to take to boost your GPA, this is the class to take. If you have a previous knowledge in physics it will help you greatly, and if you know it well you could almost get by without going to any lecture, except to take the quizes. The lectures are boring and monotonous, contain many useless facts and just all together not informative. The quizes could be a little tricky, just be sure to completly the assignments, because the quiz will resemble a few problems on the assignments. If you aren't familiar with physics, you might have to go to lectures, but its not that bad. The class is curved, so as long as you have decent knowledge of physics you should get a relatively easy A.

Workload:

10 Quizes (66%), and Final (33%)
