Awful! I really don't like physics and never took it in high school, so I found this 'intro' course exceptionally hard. There are modules, but they don't really explain concepts well, especially if they are totally new to you.
I have no background in physics, so I found the content very heavy. All the concepts were new to me, and the modules were difficult to go through as they didn't really explain the concepts well. In the spring, the labs have assignments, as opposed to participation (like the fall/winter ones), but that's okay. I found the lon-capas hard, mainly because the modules didn't provide enough explanation on how to approach the questions and it was quite difficult to figure it out yourself. The tests were very hard omg - I would recommend practicing the lon-capa and practice tests. You'll have to practice is a lot, so it can be very time-consuming
The prof is really sweet and explains the questions well. The lectures are application focused.
It is going to be very hard, especially if you have never taken physics. Some background/high school knowledge of physics will be helpful.

SPH4U should be a prerequisite for this course, the workload is ridiculously high for people who didn't take physics courses in high school. Profs are nice tho
I don't recommend taking this course in spring/summer as an elective if you've never taken a physics course before.
