This class was tough.
You have to take this course if you are a Petroleum Engineering major. It is one of the toughest courses in the program and it also happens to occur your last semester, so if you fail you have to wait until next spring to graduate. Make sure you attend class and take notes on whatever he says. It will help a ton to look over notes before and generate a few questions to ask during class on anything that you feel could be detrimental to the class. ALWAYS take notes on how he solves a problem in the notes, because 100% of test questions will have some kind of question like on the notes, but the professor will reword and make you solve different elements of the problem. Test questions are meant to be hard, but many of them are not meant to take longer than 5 minutes. If you feel like you are going above and beyond for a question, you are probably going in the wrong direction unfortunately.
This was one of my favorite courses in PNG. The professors were actually looking to help you understand the material. There are so many opportunities to go to office hours, USE THEM!!

Advice for students:
Make sure you start studying 2 weeks in advance for any exams in this course. Make sure to do the practice problems before the class before the exam, it will be to go over any questions you have. Make sure to submit your homework the RIGHT way, you can lose a ton of points in this class on homework.
