Dr C failed about half the class last time he taught it.

Dude: Seriously..you need to find another Prof.

That sucks. I got out of Thermodynamics with an A. And I'm a EE.

Granted it was at McNeese and not LSU...but seriously..that prof is fricking ridiculous. He sounds like my electric machinery class prof, who took pride in bleeding out red pens for every year.

Yes, and then they sign up for ChE because they think it'll be easier because they read somewhere ChEs make a little bit less after graduation.

I didn't say I blamed my profs for being pissy about it.

So here our my percentages on the 3 tests along with the average. people who have took the course give me an idea what I need on the final to pass and what grade can I make, dr C is my teacher.
Test 1 66% average was 55%
Test 2 48% average was 40%
Test 3 15% average was 20%


This is ridiculous. I know or knew students from LSU, ULL and UNO and they were all passing this class with 50s and stuff. If I would make a 50 average in any of my EE classes I was getting an F. I wish I could just take this class for fun and see what the hype is about.

Ridiculous, yes. But not all that rare in a class like Thermodynamics. It's pretty much the last big weed out class.

You'd understand the material and the test questions would either be A) Too long to reasonably complete in the time limit unless you are God of Thermodynamics or B) Incredibly tricky or difficult to figure out.

The class itself teaches Three Laws of Thermodynamics, so nothing in the class is truly hard to grasp once you can get the concept of entropy into your head. The tests though, are horrible experiences.

That's the problem, you work the hmwk he assigns and the test arenothing like the assigned problems. Also he throws you curve balls and puts questions pertaining to old material on the test. An example of this was the last test which was on Brayton cycles and ic engines, dude throws a sinker at us and ask a question pertaining to the Clausius inequality and a carrnot cycle question . The weight of the material pertaining to the recently covered material was only 30 percent of the fricking test.

Derek I am in your class and in a similar situation. I got a 75%, a 60%, and haven't gotten the 3rd test back. Barring a complete disaster on test 3 I figure I am in the range of a B which would be similar to you.
