Five Mistakes to Avoid FOR studying physics by Anurag Tyagi
1. The Calculator Trap: Calculators crunch
numbers; they don’t solve problems. You
need to understand the principles underlying
a problem in order to know what equations
and numbers to use. If you think your
calculator will get you through the exam,
2. Procrastination: Falling behind, even just
a little, can be disastrous in a physics class.
Every lesson builds on what came before.
Slacking off in week three can turn the next
12 weeks into exercises in futility.
3. Memorization: You will need to
memorize, but realize that memorization
doesn’t lead to success in physics. Put most
of your effort into understanding the
underlying principles that govern a
problem—only then will the equations you
memorize make sense.
4. Passivity: Passively reading examples in
the book and watching your professor solve
problems on the board have limited value.
You need to do the problems yourself, as
you will do on the exam, to learn the
5. Isolation: Physics is hard, so don’t make
the mistake of going it alone. You’ll learn far
more by working with classmates and
seeking help when necessary.
