Such a great course, I really enjoyed watching the experiments with Dr, Louis Bloomfield, he taught the course in a simplified way. Thanks a lot.

The course is a mixture between - a tv show "The Big Bang Theory" and a Young Scientist "thing". Anyways it is appropriate for adolescents.

The concepts may be a little repetitive and boring, but they create a sense of understanding somewhat lacking in other learning resources.

It is too basic for me, but sometimes reminders of basics are still a good thing. As the explanations provided were very clear and good

He can over-explain some simple topics and some of the questions are oddly written. Other than that, it is a good course.

A good refresher on some of the principles of physics that were easily forgotten since the high school graduation date.

Fascinating course. However I wouldn't have the brains to do advanced physics you need a math brain for that.

I love the way he explains clearly and engaging but a video clip must less than 10 minutes is fine.
