Reviews and tips for PHYC10005

One of the worst subjects I've done at Melbourne Uni. I only did it because I needed the Physics knowledge for the GAMSAT. I probably would've been better off not doing the subject at all. Badly coordinated, tutors were crap and I stopped going half way through the semester. Same with the lectures. Lecturers didn't teach very well either. All round a bad subject.

Worst subject by far. Very poorly taught and very dry content. Like other reviews have stated, I only did it because of the GAMSAT. It's undeniably the biggest regret of my life. I've never done this poorly in a subject and am really frustrated at the lack of coordination, the terrible structure of the subject, the lecturers who seem lost and confused half the time and more importantly the tutors who are absolutely clueless and do not engage with students whatsoever. Honestly, don't even bother with this subject. The content itself is so dry, you'll stop making an effort. The lecturers claim that doing it "helps with GAMSAT" blah blah, but youd get more value from learning GAMSAT level physics through a crash course or Khan Academy. Worst of all, they have weekly assignments due and practicals that have nothing to do with the content so you'll be investing lots of time with no result and have it figure out half the time what the hell youre being tested on. Lecturer Robert Scholten is even worse- laziest lecturer. Barely makes an effort with his working out which you'd be lucky if you can even understand. Worst subject ever. Not even worth 1 star.

Very dry subject content, the tutorials were pointless for me because it was all compulsory group work. The weekly assignments worth 1.5% each were unrelated to the lectures, and the lectures themselves were dry, and went too fast without much explanation.

Like other reviews have stated, the subject is badly coordinated. There seems to be little structure available to help new, inexperienced physics students. Yes, most us did it because it was pre-req for vet med or the GAMSAT but most of us also wanted to actually pass/do well. The lecturers were the worst - they often made mistakes or were under-prepared. My tutor was alright but often confused. Daniel Pyke was an excellent tutor around exam time, though. I only got through this subject because I studied using the textbook and past exams. Don't expect prompt help. Pracs are extremely crammed and you are seriously pressed for time.

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