Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This is a gateway engineering course, which opens up many opportunities in future courses, and good understanding greatly improves ability in future courses. Dr. Askari was a stellar educator, and over the duration of the course, I gained substantial and broad understanding of the Thermodynamic principles and properties.
As stated above, a good professor will display this very important material in a complete and understandable way; Dr. Askari did this to great impact. He was very reachable and portrayed the content in a fashion that promoted understanding and application. The final project (Sterling Engine construction and analysis) was a good culmination that was a good group learning experience.

Advice for students:
Take this course with the understanding that it is important in the future, so pay attention. Secondly, LEARN THE TABLES, if you are able to read and understand the tables, that is 1/2 of the course.
