    be good at/poor in/poor at

    I am good at maths, but poor in physics.

    Can I say poor at physics as well to mean the same?

    Thank you.

    Re: be good at/poor in/poor at

    As far as I know: yes.
    I'm poor at physics should be correct as well.
    I have checked it in dict.cc | poor at | Deutsch-Wrterbuch.
    However, it's English <-> German, so it will not help you.

    Cheers!
