Comments on the course

Mark Van Raamsdonk is a god. If you love physics, you'll love his classes. If you hate physics, you'll still love his classes.

Advice

Difficulty wise, this course is nothing special. A little bit of work will guarantee you an A in this course. I did not work at all so I ended up getting a B.

Comments on the course

UBC is so wily to have him teaching PHYS 157. First year students are attracted by his lecture and forget what's happening in some other horrible courses. The course is overall pretty easy, and the professor is very patient.

Advice

Practice more and pay attention to lecture problems
