Wong is such a nice guy. And he makes physics so easy. My only complaint is that I wish he would not post the answers to the midterm and final exams before we took the tests. I mean..it is hard to study when you know the solutions. Other than that he is awesome!!

Prf. Wong simplifies physics so you can actually understand it. His lectures emphasize concepts in depth rather than problem solving. This is a very effective way of teaching because once you understand the concepts, you can learn to do the problems by yourself. He is very concerned about student learning, and is one nice person!

Not hard. Lectures can be enlightening, but will get muddled sometimes. Even though I had had some of this material in high school, relearning it was fun...he used just the right mix of physical intuition and vector calculus. If you go to his office, you can really talk to him one-on-one and feel like you're getting a straight explanation from an experienced physicist. I was not impressed by his relativity lectures, but he cleraly put some effort into choosing his approach to the subject, even showing a short little video from the 70s. He almost glossed over optics, and spent the most time on AC, which was new to me, but I felt I learned it very well. If Tatyana TAs, don't trust her quiz keys to be completely correct, and don't trust her not to lose your old homeworks and their grades!

He may not be one of the best Physics professors. But I am sure he is one of the easiest. Don't ignore his practice midterms and finals, it almost the same as the real ones. And this guy does not grade on curve =)
