Reviews and tips for PHYC10005

Very boring and difficult subject!!! Would be best to already have some physics knowledge before starting the subject

Anonymous, Semester 1, 2016

I actually did well in PHYC10005, but it was the worst unit I have ever taken. I completed this as a second year after realising I needed it as a pre-req for vet. Majority of the students who do this unit have no physics knowledge, average maths skills, and are only doing it because they have to. The tutorials are non-compulsory and my tutor had no idea about any of the content (I later found out, after complaining, that the coordinators were completely aware of this), the practicals are easy enough - especially if you get a good demonstrator. I had a nice demonstrator who was absolutely my saving grace in this unit. The lectures are not particularly useful and the lecturers are terrible. The homework assignments aren't too hard, especially if you've read the relevant textbook chapter. The exam is so much harder than anything expected of you in semester. If you have to do this unit: BUY THE TEXTBOOK, read all relevant parts and do the questions. If your tutor is useless go to another tute (a few of the tutors are actually good), and be able to do all of the tute questions. Go to the lectures as there are some exam hints thrown in. Do as well as possible on in semester assessment (pracs & homework), the exam is only worth 60%. Assess very early on if you need an external tutor, and get one if you do! Or form a study group with people from your tute, remember 98% of students studying this probably find it as difficult as you do! Do all of the practice exams, they give a good indication of what is expected on the final exam.

This is a pretty difficult subject, but I think you get as much as you put in. Keep up to date with the content, do a lot of practice Qs(!!!), pre-readings, etc - basically actually make an effort - and you should be fine.

This subject is hard. ESPECIALLY if you have not done any physics previously. When taught the content seems straightforward enough —if you make sure to pay attention— though it gets much more demanding in the tutorials and even more so in the exam. You are expected to be able to apply reasonably simple concepts to much harder, abstract problems. The textbook is your best friend, so make sure you work through chapter questions and try to read ahead of what is happening in the lectures.

The lectures don't really prepare you for the exam. And the tutorials are not even compulsory since they don't take attendance, but maybe it depends on the tutor. The practicals were really easy, and the demonstrators will always help you out. There will also be weekly assignments online where you do questions. Some of the questions are really hard, but most of the time you can just google the question and you will get the answer. But if you want to do well in this subject I recommend you have some physics knowledge or at least have a friend that does.
