I am a High School Physics Teacher...

"... and these dvds are terrible. All these videos do is read equations to the viewer. Students have a book for that. I was hoping for experiments, fun examples of physical concepts in everyday life, etc., but there was none of this. As a teacher intent on instilling excitement in my students, it is painful for me to watch. Even I got bored and mind-numb after only a few minutes. Don't do this to your students! This video reinforces the notion that physics is only a bunch of equations you have to memorize. I don't believe they did this."
Not your father's old Physics class

"Excellent and entertaining way to learn and understand Physics. These two DVDs are every well put together, explaining from basics to more challenging different laws and formulas of Physics. You can view different subjects, or view the whole program and later take exams on your DVD to see how much you learned from the program. It's a great way to review for CLEP testing, or to be entertained and learn about Physics."
For Middle School or High School

"I bought these as a way to possibly help with an online college physics course, but it was entirely too elementary. It may, however, be fine for high school review or clarification; it has no complex problem examples for any of the topics. But what could you want in a DVD series that summarizes all physics topics?"

"I definitely think the videos could be more exciting. But if you are really trying to learn physics and are studying on your own. These tapes are a good way to spend your down time away from books and problems. You pick up little nuances that you may not see by staring at a bunch of words in a book."
