Well I finished General Physics I & II w/Calculus this year with good grades (A/A-), but I really don't feel I retained everything. I got most of the concepts down from Newtonian Mechanics, but I don't feel as though I grasped everything in E&M. I took Physics II while taking Calculus II, so I really didn't fully grasp the Flux material that is apparently taught in Multivariate (which I'm taking in the Fall). We also seemed to cover so much material in E&M that by the end of the semester I was doing the "Plug and Chug" for some of the problems (like RLC circuits, Frequency Resonance, and visualizing flow in multi-loop circuits). Summer break started today, and I've already started re-reading the text. I plan to cover the Newtonian Mechanics, Thermodynamics, and Fluid Mechanics sections this summer, and then E&M and Modern Physics after I take Multivariate in the fall (during the 5-week winter break). How normal and widespread is this? I was told that these courses are meant to give an overview of a lot of material and that I would re-focus on certain aspects of the material in specific classes that pertain to my area of engineering, but I want to really understand the content. Is this unreasonable for the class level of these courses?
