Oh..I have the same problem..Help us!!!!!
But I mean I learn ancient Greek and I can't even study physics

12 Oct
I am a Greek one so I can tell that ancient Greek is 100000% more difficult than physics.

It sounds tough! We are dooomed!!! :p

I say write a lot down and reading over it again. You don't have to write everything down, but just the important stuff.

You have to do in this manner.
1. You read it.
2. You make yourself understand with topic.
3. Read it again to clear everything.
4. And then write it down to remember it for longer time.

Hey there :) Im a physics major. A little tip for studying physics is that it isn't all about memorizing (of course it's still important). It's more of understanding the concepts and formulas so that you can better remember and apply them in situational problems :)

Thanks for the tip! :)

Lol I'm struggling in physics. You in college?

I'm starting college next year! :) I'll get into a medical college so that i dont have to face physics! :p

Medical is overrated. Go with engineering. Virginia tech all the way!

When working on a problem write down what they're looking for and what they're giving you then solve.

Hey there! I am an engineering student and an aspiring astronaut :), my favorite subject is physics.I don't reallt know if it will help you with your grades but I'd like to share how I do physics. I read the theory from a good book, slowly and by paying attention trying to understand each and every word, after I've finished reading a topic, I visualize , I set up a problem in my mind and ponder with it , I ask myself what will happen if I do this? And then I try to interpret and visualize the answer according the theory that I read earlier.

Theoretical physics is fun! But its even fun seeing it in action, so try and set up experiments, if they are out of you're domain , go to youtube and watch a videos that demonstrate the experiments and phenomenons rrlated to the topic you just studied. Although practical situations are a little different than what you've studied in the theory as the theory in books is a purely ideal case by neglecting environmental factors.

As far as problems and fomulae are concerned, just keep practicing problems this way you will memorize the important formulae and learn new concepts.

A few good books :

Resnick Haliday
University Physics
Feynman lectures

And yeah, Math plays a huge role in physics!!
So...good math , analytical skills and high visualization power are my keys to success in physics :)

I hope this helps, also best of luck with your exams :)

Thanks so much! All i ever do is stare at the physics book lol

Take it easy... One step at a time... Focus on a topic... Read it a few times...work with the formulas...then solve the questions....wherever u r stuck,refer again to the problem....learning physics is a gradual process...take ur time...use different approaches to help urself....

Just review the formulas and try to imagime what type of questions ur teacher get on testsĀ  and try to find out how to solve them ..
