    Programs As a brand new physics major, I have a question.

    I have this situation in physics with calc. It takes a great amount of time to solve one problem. In your case, being on one problem for an hour sounds normal to me. If you take more then one hour to solve this problem, skip it and come back later.

    Need advice about dorm rooms

    That's a great idea! I hope there are study rooms in my new university. I cannot find anyone face-to-face that will major in physics. I'm starting to believe there are only a few who are physicists.

    Need advice about dorm rooms

    usually I'm worried about the time management and social life in dorm room life. The other issue is getting a job and maintaining a good balance with my studies. Also, I've been in school for three years(I'm a junior) And all I have to take for the next semester is physics 2 and other science...

    Need advice about dorm rooms

    Hello again, everyone. I got accepted to the University at Buffalo and I'm an out of state student. My tuition is already covered for the fall semester and I'm going to live in a dorm with three different people. I don't mind the people just the survival to get around and trying not to ruin my...

    Schools Expelled from university. What do?

    We all make mistakes. We are human beings and not perfect angels. I suggest you find what you really like to study. If computers is your passion, follow it! Its better to have a passion on what you like. Do some soul searching... Good luck. :)

    Self-teaching physics with calculus.

    With all the calculus involved in this book, I've never taken a Calc 3 course. Does it matter to study calc 3 while studying this physics book with calc involved?

    The Financial aid committee approved my appeal

    I already sent everything required at UB and they gave me a person's number. Also, I heard that I can dodge the foreign language requirement courses because getting n A.A. is not required for this university. Any thoughts on that?

    The Financial aid committee approved my appeal

    The financial committee approved my appeal but its too late. I've already gave up on their answer to help extend my financial aid because I went over 150% of my credits. The classes I need were Intermediate Spanish and asked them to give me calc 3. They agreed to give me both of these classes...

    Self-teaching physics with calculus.

    I have an old text book titled: The fundamentals of Physics-3rd edition(Authors:Halliday and Resnick). It was published in 1988 and I want to know if an old outdated book can still be useful. I looked at the pages and some are bent or folded. Still, all the pages are there. I want to use this...

    I got a C in Calc. 2

    Re: I got a "C" in Calc. 2.... Thanks everyone for cheering me up. What I learned from this experience was gaining a better study method and learning more about myself. I'll continue my path as a physicist and prepare for the challenge ahead.:smile:

    I got a C in Calc. 2

    Re: I got a "C" in Calc. 2.... That seems to be my case. I did so well in previous math classes and then this course was really tough. New material like sequence and series was a real brain buster for me. It was challenging and fun to see this type of material, however; it was stressful at...
