Great unit where the content is provided in very comprehensive lecture notes, and the lecturers are fantastic. There is quite a lot of work to do, but its definitely achievable and helped keep me accountable in my study.

Decent content, and all tests and exams are multi choice. That being said the questions can get quite hard. Main downside to the unit is the labs as they are 3 hours long. I would advise aiming to finish in less than 2.5 hours as otherwise you could be there waiting for marking well into the 4th hour. Also, Darren is a goat.

The content was interesting but the multiple lecturers was very hard to follow. The labs felt more like an arduous task to get marks than interesting experiment.

Good start for phys. Make sure you have the textbook as they double the joy along the journey! The mechanics bit was a bit challenging for me and I would recommend reading the textbook for that part as they helped me more than the lectures.

Lecturers were very varied and same with difficulty. Mechanics was taught the worst and seemed to be the hardest part. Overall, I enjoyed this unit. There were plenty of practice tests and exams and available which was a huge help. Final exam is a 30 q multichoice which was not too terrible but definitely not easy

Teaches how to solve physics exams, not physics

The lecturers were very varied as people below said. But perhaps the most annoying thing was the labs which were compulsory. Even though they were relatively easy marks, I did not enjoy it. My advice is to find a good lab partner. Also, the weekly quizzes took time, so I'll suggest starting that early. The tests were quite hard in comparison to the exam, which was a lot easier. Overall, I hope you enjoy.

A relatively easy unit if you completed ATAR physics in year 12. It's only negative was the change in lecturers throughout the semester. All of them had different standards and different ways of teaching. Also, the lack of a consistent flow between the lecturers made it hard to understand what was required of us. All other aspects were great!

The constant switching of lecturers in this unit was ultimately it's downfall. They all varied in teaching skill and even question difficulty. Don't they have one person that could teach all basic physics? Other elements are fine.
