Reviews and tips for PHYC10007

A very poorly run subject. The content is new to all students doing it but they teach it as if you already have a physics background. Assignments are related to the textbook not the lectures. The exam, however, is based on the lectures alone. The best advice I can really give for this subject is to read the textbook. Even though the exam will test you on the lectures, the textbook will explain the concepts covered in lectures better and in more depth, which is needed for assignments. In our case, it was also difficult to get help, as the lecturers did not have contact hours and I doubt that they will in the future. The Laby Ideas Centre isn't much help either as you will be competing with all other first year physics students to get help. If you are having trouble the best tips I can give is to talk to other students or ask your tutor questions in your tutorial.

Like nails on a chalkboard. Personally, classic physics was fun, loved those demos, but electrical was just the worst. Electromagnetics lecturer expected everyone to be curious little physics enthusiasts and everyone of my peers walked out of those lectures complaining about the horrible teaching style and lack of examples. Allow a lot of time in your studies to teach yourself, you'll walk away from each lecture and tute wondering what the heck just happened.

Fully packed subject with lot of new concepts to learn if you haven't done much physics. Was very hard but the exam is scaled.
