I'm about to enroll in a University of Phoenix online "Fundamentals of Physics" course.  Does anyone have experience with this class (quality of teaching or difficulty?) or any other prerequisites with University of Phoenix?  I've seen plenty negative reviews on Univ. of Phoenix, but since I'm just doing a single course, I'm hoping it won't be too bad.  

The math placement exam was HARD for me!  Is the difficulty of that test indicative of the difficulty of the course??

Thanks!

Hi! I took this course this spring and my class was super easy! The only downside was of course the cost of the class, but overall it was an EASY class. I’m not really interested in physics, but my professor made an effort to relate class topics to real life which helped me out. As for the quality of teaching, there are no direct lectures. Everything is done through educational videos that are really bare bones and only last at most two minutes, group discussions, quizzzes, etc. There are also no exams in the course! Hope that helps!

Hi,  the math placement was definitely not indicative of the level of the course - I'm not sure why we even had to take that. The course was much easier than I expected - it's mostly multiple choice questions all along and not having exams was a bonus.

Thanks NYorker - such a relief as this will be the one time I'm doing 3 courses (the rest of my grad courses should only be 2 at a time).
