Physics classes too boring

  1. Oct 22, 2014 #1
    why are the physics classes so boring?
    I am taking some upper devision EM,QM classes. they just keep repeating everything I have learned in the previous few years.
    can't they jump straight to the fun part like in Landau?

    Welcome to PF;
    There is no way to tell why you find your classes boring - you indicate that they are repetitive, but I am sure you find other repetitive activities interesting. It is likely that the coursework is designed for students other than you, who may have a shakier grasp of the foundations.
    You should be finding tests and assignments easy - which is a bonus.
    If you have just started out - you'll probably find they get into the fun stuff once they are sure everyone is on the same page.

    My prof told me that Landau's every books is good, except quantum mechanics - it is nothing really outstanding from other text. (Personally I have only read Landau's mechanics.)
