PHYS 1010q Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: A

Very easy class if you've taken any kind of physics before. Hamilton makes the class somewhat interesting and he seemed to enjoy giving his lectures. If you have a good TA then lab will be easy as well

PHYS 1010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

This professor was always very clear in lecture and was so nice. You don't have to go to class and can rely on just the online notes, but anytime I did attend lecture I had a better understanding. Pretty easy if you study. Lab on the other hand was tedious, Katya Sergan SUCKS, rudest TA I have ever met

PHYS1010Q Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I struggled with his class a lot more than others described. I went to almost every class and did the homework and review problems, and ended up with just a B+. Study really hard for the second test! I would recommend the class because Hamilton is nice and labs are short, but know going into it that it requires work if you're not good at physics.

GREAT TEACHER! Actually makes physics make sense! Labs are short and tests are easy and fair. Only downside is that the class is at 8 AM and you have to go to class to get the notes

Hamilton is awesome! He gives practice questions online, some of which are literally on the test. He has two-hour review sessions the week of the exams as well. Easy quizzes online every week to bring up your average. Lab was also very easy and brought up my average. It was supposed to be 2 hours but usually only lasted for one. TAKE THIS CLASS!

Phys 1101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Everyone says this class is easy but after going to every class, and studying all week and getting two 68s on his two tests i would not recomend it at all. Boring class with boring subjects. Take another lab.

PHYS 1010Q Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is the man! Physics can be rough especially at 8 in the morning but he is so helpful outside of class and sincerely wants his students to do well. Take him over the others professors, if possible. Honestly, he is the best.

Awesome professor. Go to class, read the notes over and you'll be fine. So nice and clear and helpful outside of class. If you don't do well, that's your fault.

Classes are pretty much straight forward but my LAB section was not that good
