Joe's page links to many useful resources; you should check it out. However, the two versions of Physics 4B will not always be identical, so remember to look here for assignments and exam-related material.

In general, PLC assignments will be nearly identical between the two pages (for the sake of the PLC tutors' sanity), labs will be similar (for the sake of John Welch's sanity), but problem sets and sample problems may differ wildly (so it can help to read both pages, for extra inspiration!)
