I'm just wrapping up my last semester at community college before heading to university, and while I'm likely to get A's in Calc 3, O.D.E. and Prob/Stats, this will not be the case in Physics II. I had the same instructor for both courses, each time was his first time teaching that course (he just recently obtained his master's). I had a B in Physics I and will likely end up with a B in Physics II, but I don't feel like this accurately reflects my knowledge of the material. Firstly, every test has a huge curve, (halve your score, add 50). My raw score tends to be anywhere between an F and a B, but I always end with at least a C. I've let the instructor know about my concerns and he's always had encouraging words, but I don't know if he's blowing smoke. He says it's a crash course in Mechanics, Waves, Electromagnetism, Thermodynamics, Optics and that most people miss a significant amount of material on their way through, including physics majors, but I'm not convinced. Other instructors have told me that his tests were way too difficult. Again, not convinced. I know that as a math major, I will probably never have to take a physics course ever again in my life. But I feel like I wasted two whole semesters with this and I got a fraudulent grade, and that if I want to do anything with physics applications with a B.S. or higher, I've already missed that opportunity. Anybody here ever been in a similar situation?
