I am interested in assistant professor positions in physics at teaching-focused universities in the US. New faculty in these positions may have 2 or 3 courses to teach. I have heard that preparing to teach classes for the first time takes an immense amount of time (~80 hours per week). Is this accurate or exaggerated?

Edit for clarity:
How long would you expect to prepare a class that you haven’t taught before?
