Professor : Not specified

Comment :
There isnt that much material and the proff moves at a good pace. But make sure you keep on top of the material because it can be hard to learn all in one night ! Make sure you do well on the quizes since the final usually consists of only 20 questions, each of which are very difficult

Professor : Massa

Comment :
Massa tries soooo hard to make the class fun.. but truth be it, its PHYSICS! so that never really worked! the course is designed for you to study by yourself, and teach yourself everything! you can go with a 100 percent before the final, but dont expect taht when you come out of the final. expect anywhere between the 60s and low 80s ! final is brutal!

Professor : Massa/Kycia

Comment :
Massa is a brilliant and funny prof, i had him for the first half and Kycia for the second half. Kycia is a good and competent prof, he just isn't as funny as Massa. The quizzes are more difficult than in 1070 but still doable. It's not too hard of a course.

Comment :
This course is the same format as 1070. It has 5 quizzes each 10% and the final exam worth 50%. Massa is an excellent professor, get into his section.
