Comment :
The course is definitely difficult, but looking back on it a lot of the material is so applicable and useful for other mechanics courses. It's definitely a need-to-have course for mechanicals, but don't sweat it if you don't do as well as you had hoped. Most of the mechanics courses overlap with each other, and by third or fourth year this stuff is second nature. As for the prof...if you have satish negi you're screwed. You might as well buy the text book and learn it all yourself. Oh and one last thought, DO THE ASSIGNMENTS!!! I know your buddy has the solutions and you just want to pass, but the assignments are the best study tool. Anyways, hope this helps. B.M

I took this course twice with two different profs and failed miserably both times. Then I switched my major. This course is definitely the litmus indicator of potential to actually become a real engineer; not for the faint of heart.

Course is quite difficult I've heard, even with a decent prof. Unfortunately my prof's english was hard to understand, and I was actually quite satisfied when I passed with a 55. I'm glad to have this course over with.
