Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi. I plan on being an exchange student at Berkeley next year. I cannot find any course description for this course, I only find the description for 141A+141B: http://general-catalog.berkeley.edu/catalog/gcc_list_crse_req?p_dept_name=Physics&p_dept_cd=PHYSICS [Broken]

141A. Solid State Physics. (4) Three hours of lecture and one hour of discussion per week. Prerequisites: 137A-137B; 137B may be taken concurrently. Part I. A thorough introductory course in modern solid state physics. Crystal symmetries; classification of solids and their bonding; electromagnetic, elastic, and particle waves in periodic lattices; thermal magnetic and dielectric properties of solids; energy bands of metals and semi-conductors; superconductivity; magnetism; ferroelectricity; magnetic resonances.

The problem is that I am taking a SSP course right now at my home uni: http://www.ntnu.edu/studies/courses/TFY4220#tab=omEmnet
and I don't want to have to re-study the same material.

I'd like to take something akin to this course:
http://www.ntnu.edu/studies/courses/TFY4245#tab=omEmnet

Does anybody know?

Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

TFY4220 = PHYS141A
TFY4245 ~ PHYS141B (content varies a lot depending on the lecturer from what I've heard)
