#### REVISION GUIDES

On this page you can find our student-made revision guides and resources for various Physics modules. We are currently working on updating these.

â€‹

In the academic years 2022/23 and 2023/24, many physics (and mathematics modules for those on the MathPhys degree stream) modules were updated and changed course code. Hence some guides may differ from the current lecture courses or you may find modules used to have different names (see archive). In some cases, multiple students have contributed notes and as such different documents are listed below the module title (format "notes 1, notes 2, etc").

â€‹

Note: these guides should be used in conjunction with other material and as they are often meant as summaries, not comprehensive notes. Lecture notes and videos on Moodle should always be consulted for a fully up to date version of the course.

â€‹

If you spot any errors or have suggestions on how to improve these documents, please let us know!

Underlined titles have notes available.
