    Hey all,

    I was just wondering if anyone can give me a perspective on summer physics. I'm well aware that it will be intense, I guess i'm more looking for an idea of what the routine will be like....i'm a post-bacc now so i already study ALL THE TIME, but I do have some concerns about just not having enough time to learn material before the next topic/day. Have you people who have taken summer pre-reqs find that the material/exams are somewhat tailored towards the condensed time? I guess my fear is being tested on something very in depth that it was downright impossible for me to get to before moving on. ANY thoughts/comments/ideas welcomed! Thanks.

    I've taken a good number of summer courses, and I haven't found them to be harder or easier than regular semester. The only difference is that you need to put time in consistently and be able to focus on the same course day in and day out.

    I took a year of physics + lab in a summer at a UC school, and I found it to be comparatively easy. The pace was quick, but we didn't go that far in depth, and the tests accurately reflected what we had learned. I realize that I can't speak for all schools, but many of my friends who have taken summer classes elsewhere also found them easier.
