    Easy course. Never went to lecture, got an A+. Good introduction to mechanics, which while not nearly as interesting as other branches of physics, gives a really solid foundation for more advanced physics. RGB is amazing.

    Very interesting, great intro to physics, fun demos in class. Read the textbook! The concepts are actually not too hard and (shockingly) reading helps you learn them.

    This was kind of a tough class I am not going to lie. I took it because it was required and just had to get through it. The labs and exams were hard so I recommend getting a study group together. Beware, I thought it would be easy since I took high school AP physics but the grading was much harder.
