Hello Socratica Friends! We’re here to help you be a great student! Are you interested in studying Physics, but you don’t know where to start? Today we have a special guest, Simon Clark, PhD, who will give us some great advice about how to study Physics. We’ll talk about how Simon got inspired by Physics demonstrations and activities as a kid, and how his studies progressed at Oxford and the University of Exeter. You may be surprised to hear how much math is involved when you study Physics! Simon gives some great practical advice about how to learn this most fundamental of the sciences.

Simon made a video that ties in with this one, all about the Physics books he would recommend for you. You can find that video over on Simon’s channel here:
