PY205 is like high school level physics.

Are you trying to do engineering? If you are, take 205 (because it's required). Otherwise, take 131.

I've actually already taken 205, but a friend of mine asked about 211 vs 205 and wasn't sure if it was harder or easier. I looked it up and saw that it was non-calculus based....so I guess it's just a lot of memorization?


Idk...I didn't really know what to tell them about it so I thought I'd ask you guys

^ yea PY 131 is almost a joke, but if it is new material I suppose it is a good way to get the big picture. EASY AS FUCK for anyone decent at math.

211, for people not in engineering .... it's an uphill battle because you are in a class with a lot of engineers who could sleep through the class and get an A. They like to focus on little pieces and ask questions that may go over a nonengineering person's head.

They are, in order of difficulty from easiest to hardest:

PY131
PY211
PY205

205 is designed for engineers, and will be calculus based. 211 is a non calculus based overview of physics. 131 is a joke.
