Reviews

bro, was pretty fun, the experiments were worth 5 stars, and most lectures were pretty good, just hard to understand sometimes, and not very fun. if you like maths mixed with words, with complicated as words btw, then you'll love this subject.

Made my first semester at uni not very enjoyable and was by far my least favourite subject. Was extremely content heavy for a subject for students who had never done physics before. Practicals were pretty boring but at least the demonstrators were there to help. Tutorials were a waste of time and most people ended up not going at all. Would definitely not recommend unless you need this subject as a prereq/for the GAMSAT

Really enjoyed this subject! Having very little background in physics I was surprised how quickly I picked it up through attending the lectures, tutes and pracs. The lecturers and tutors are very enthusiastic and helpful

Very reasonable subject and the staff are very nice and willing to help, but you have to be very proactive with your learning and put in the hard work. Do lots and lots of questions. There will be lots of past exams given around swotvac, i highly recommend doing all of them because they reuse questions a fair bit. Try to schedule your prac at the end of the week!! Otherwise the theory required for that prac won't have been covered in lectures yet which'll make it very difficult to do well in the report! Pracs are also often very pressed for time so do as much as possible before hand.

Considering all the bad reviews, I didn't actually think the subject was that bad. The tutes were a bit of a time-waster so didn't end up going to most of them and the pracs were a bit of a joke because they were based on theory that you hadn't been taught yet, but the actual lectures themselves weren't as terrible as some people make it out to be, and the exam (at least for this year) wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. If you do lots of practise questions before the exam, you should be fine (as long as you don't have high expectations).

Very content heavy, slides and lectures are all over the place

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 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.

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.

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.
