Overall Comment:
The physics covered in this course is all pretty basic. The majority content overlaps with high school level physics so I’d definitely recommend  this course to anyone who has completed year 12 physics. However, if you haven’t done any physics before I would recommend attending the lectures as some of it is quite conceptual.

The pracs are a bit slow and the weekly online quizzes take a while, but once you get over that the assessment is all pretty easy. Overall it is an easy course to pass and it is very possible to achieve a good grade in.
