Unlocking Success | The Power of Quality Physics Resources

After 4000 hours of one-on-one teaching with over 500 students, a key insight surfaced. Your grade correlates directly with the amount of problem-solving you undertake. This fact is also supported by Stanford scientists.

Successfully acing your test depends on tackling numerous problems. However, not just any problem will suffice. Problems need to be stimulating, thereby challenging your understanding of core concepts, like those on the AP Physics 1 exam.

Locating such resources and problems can be difficult…

That’s where nerd-notes comes in. We’ve curated high-quality physics materials – challenging, engaging, and absolutely free. And we’re constantly adding to our collection.

Having the right resources is non-negotiable. To fast-track learning, we suggest pairing these resources with an instructor for step-by-step guidance. This approach has proven transformative for our students.

The combination of quality resources and a top-tier instructor is immensely effective. We mandate a minimum of 120 questions per chapter for our students at nerd-notes. The results have been remarkable.

On average, a nerd-notes student achieves between 93-97% in class tests. Roughly three quarters of our students score a 5 on the AP exam, far exceeding the national average. Students who’ve started with us early have shared how understanding Physics truly made it enjoyable.

Thousands of resources, guides, and articles await you here on this page. All carefully curated to accelerate your learning. We are committed to providing a world-class Physics education.
