Amazing TA. Most of the professors for E&M suck, so you’ll be doing yourself a favor by signing up for Andrew’s section. His explanations are crystal clear, and you’ll learn exactly what you need to know to crush the exams.

The one thing I would like to emphasize is that Georgia DOES NOT answer her emails...prepare to be ghosted. If you have any questions, go to OH. I essentially agree with the student's review below, but Georgia isn't that terrible of a teacher. Since she's relatively new to teaching, I don't think she has grasped what she needs to teach in order for students to understand physics. She proves formulas in the book (provides the skeleton), but doesn't do many examples or any examples at all of those concepts (no muscle). Without muscles the skeleton can't move. However, she is mostly helpful during OH, as she goes over some examples/hw problems. Make sure to ask her to pull out her iPad, not just talk cause it doesn't make sense when she's just speaking. I personally hated the weekly quizzes, but I would say that I felt less stressed about the midterms than I would have if there weren't any quizzes. You have to understand the hw problems in order to figure out the questions on the quizzes. Don't just memorize hw solutions.

Andrew is hands down the smartest and best TA ever. Had him twice for two different classes. His recitations were super helpful and I found him to be even better than the professor at explaining concepts. He is also a very lax grader and is not demanding whatsoever so having him for any class is honestly the dream.

Professor Hone is incredible. He is one of the best lecturers and teachers I have had at Columbia. Teaches you everything you need to know in lectures and made mechanics easy and fun. I never had to even touch the books aside from homework problems. With that being said, grading was ROUGH. I personally did not like the grade distribution whatsoever and it appears like a decent chunk of the class was curved down. The grading process and cutoffs were also vague. You just have to do really really well on the final. Felt like I was doing well in the class all semester but ended up with a shitty grade.
