The lectures provided me with a fundamental understanding of many topics in Physics, such as electricity and magnetism, quantum and statistical mechanics and derivation of theoretical equations. As the classes were small, the class dynamic was more group discussions which for me personally was a good way to learn. The lectures were always helpful whenever any area was of difficult to understand and were always happy to arrange to see me outside of class to go over things again.
