So I'm going into my second year of college at the University of Neb @ Omaha. I'm majoring in Physics and Civil Engineering. Now I have always loved physics but there was something about the way they treated it in my classes up to this point that absolutely turned me off. I'm not sure if any one else finds learning about newtons laws for the 3rd time exciting or not. I disregarded my dislike for physics one because it was just an intro course I'd seen most of the bits and pieces to(and the prof sucked-more on him later). But, I hate physics II with a passion. I don't quite know why though. I don't know if its because I'm being given equations to solve problems instead of techniques or what. I've never been a fan of dealing with electricity but I'm never despised it this much. I've always had an interest in GR, SR, and QM but if the classes are going to be taught like physics I and II where you are just drowned in formulas and using them together to solve a problem I'm not sure I want to take the classes. I really know I should gut it out and see what its like for myself, but I'm worried about the math methods class I will take this fall. It is taught by the same professor from physics I. I can tell you right now that I will end up teaching myself the majority of that class and if its going to be much more stressful. Basically what I'm asking everyone that went through the physics major process, do you think the advanced classes were taught any different that the intro ones, or were they any more interesting to you? Physics major or not I'm still going to take Diff Geometry and probably complex analysis and tensor analysis just because they are math classes and I love math and need something else to take and those would help a bit to wrap my mind around GR atleast.
