How to Study(PHYS II)

  1. Sep 30, 2007 #1
    Ok, so I am not sure why, but I am confused on how to study in this class.
    There is the material covered in lecture, but also there is tons of stuff in studio.
    The first test I didn't do too well in, but the class average was a 50%(the physics is ranked harder than MIT's). I am just not too sure how to go about it.

    by phys II do you mean the basic intro E&M class with calculus? I aced that class by reading the textbook carefully and doing plenty of exercises/problems. I also had a strong background in multivaribale calculus and DEs. I either didnt attend or didnt pay attention to lectures.

    Yes I mean that calc based. See I would work problems in the book however we are given tons of problems to work on our online hw system. There is also tons of stuff we cover in studio. I am also taking Calc III.
