Bachtis is one of the most entertaining professors in the department. I would love coming to lectures and especially because the content of this class was amazing. Everything from 110A comes together in such a beautiful way imo. The grading scheme consists of homework, two midterms, and a final. The homework was pretty straightforward and straight from Griffiths. The two midterms I thought were not very representative of what we learned throughout the class though. They were difficult and worded weird. The final was very fair however. Despite this being a tough class it was probably my favorite class in undergrad so far, especially when you get to special relativity.
Prof. Bachtis is the best; knows how to explain the content to truly help you understand just how exciting classical electrodynamics is. I couldn't give this class a stronger recommendation, and I hope I will be able to take another class with Prof. Bachtis soon!
I just finished with the final exam, which is just another normal quiz. There are only four exams, 25% each, which I think is more like a quiz. Each one consists of 1 or 2 questions and you are given one hour. I got three 100% on the previous ones and final one is also very easy and not accumulative but only about relativity and EM.
Lectures are useful and book is optional. Bachtis made the class really relieving. But personally I would review Griffith through winter break because as he said a quarter is too short to internalize all six chapter, and obviously he skipped some content to make our life really easy.
