This class is pretty bad but its a requirement for the major. This prof assigns 9 reports of which 5 are full group lab reports, 3 are group summaries, and 1 is an individual report. This class can either be the biggest time drain or pretty chill depending on your group members. Unfortunately for me, my some of my partners were pretty useless and left me and the other members to do all the work. The summaries are quite easy as they do not require great attention to detail as most of the work and data does not need to be shown. The reports are extremely difficult since the lab manual is very confusing and none of the TAs and professors knew anything. In fact, asking them questions was quite useless and wasted time. This was essentially the blind leading the blind. A person's best bet would be to ask people who already submitted the reports what they did. The individual report, although daunting at first, is quite easy so long as you can partner up with a friend and split up the data reduction, and show different data and graphs in the main report. All of these labs are pretty bad, but the saving grace is that you really only need to spend 1-2 days a week on this. Hopefully you get good group members or this class is actually a living hell.
