How hard would Physics 2 be over a three month summer semester?

  1. Sep 26, 2010 #1
    I am a freshmen who is interested in studying physics, but I did not take the first semester physics with my Calc 1 this semester. My plan is to take Physics 1 next semester and Physics 2 over the summer semester. The summer semester is longer then a normal one because it is about three months long(May 20-ish to August 20-ish). The lectures are Monday-Friday for fifty minutes if that helps at all. Would it be more difficult than a normal semester Physics? Thanks in advance.

    There is no reason why taking physics over the summer would be harder.

    In fact, at a lot of schools, summer classes are smaller than regular fall/spring classes and students are given more individual attention, thus making summer classes easier than fall or spring classes. At least that's what I've heard.
