Thanks MIT!
Your open course ware is a big help.
I attend Acadia University in Nova Scotia Canada
Your lectures are great review material and sick day material.

It is really a fortune learning from top university like MIT for free.

I can't find the notes about Faraday's Law in circuits that Professor Lewin refers to anywhere (the ones where The Books Have Got It Wrong). These used to be on the OCW MIT website and MIT have removed them. This is really annoying of MIT.
Does anyone know where online I can find them?
Thanks, Jan
