Class Description

Waves and Optics is the first course in the series of online physics courses for JAMB and WAEC preparation. It may seems like an odd choice to cover optics first but experience has shown that optics is the most commonly asked question on the JAMB exam. 

This course consists of audio and text lectures covering the length and breath of optics. We will provide detailed examples to help you gain mastery in solving the specific types of problems you will encounter in your standardized tests.

Therefore this course is ideal for students preparing for JAMB or WAEC but it will also be very helpful for student looking for an introduction into optics and physics in general.This class is ideal for people preparing for the JAMB or WAEC physics exams.

Although this course provides general information about the optics and physics, we occasionally tailor the content specifically towards the areas that are most likely to appear on the JAMB and WAEC standardized tests.
