This depends way to much on the individual. The hardest course I ever took was Art Appreciation. I had a 100% in physics both semesters, and I was terrified of it! I also thought OChem was easier than GenChem. Calc 1 was a blast, Calc 2 was okay, but was harder than either semester of physics. Microbiology and Human Physiology were probably the hardest I took because they were all fact memorization instead of understanding.
I took summer physics which kinda sucked because it was your entire summer but the class was easy. My hardest prereq was probably gen chem, but I have taken harder classes for my major (p-chem, cancer bio) that aren't required for med school.Nobody can really answer this. It all depends on the person and their specific strengths and weaknesses.
Depends on the physics. My school offers a calc based physics but I took regular. I don't remember any calc in my physics class but physics is very number oriented so I would think if you are good at math in general you would do well in physics.If you do really well in Calculus, is it likely that you will do really well in Physics as well?
Just forget about being a doctor - if you can't pass physics you might as well drop your entire (assuming) biology major and pursue something more parallel to your intellectual ability.
Calc based E&M at Brown was the hardest class I've had. Calc based mechanics at Maryland was average and the lab was much less time consuming then any chem lab.
yea, its gonna depend on which school you attendCalc based E&M at Brown was the hardest class I've had. Calc based mechanics at Maryland was average and the lab was much less time consuming then any chem lab.
I think if you're taking physics with a lot of premeds, its not so bad, because they're out of their element. But if you take it with a lot of engineers / physics major, it's tough becasue you're out of your's.
so far chem II has been my hardest out of chem bio calc (I and II for all three). i dont understand why we needed to go into so much detail concerning molecular orbitals and the quantum mech. of bonds and ligand and crystal structures. i dont think physics will be too bad, mostly because i took it in hs and was fine. idk how my hs physics compares to uni physics though.
