Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Professor Minichiello was literally the best teacher that I've ever had in my engineering courses! She taught simply, classroom time wasn't dreaded, and she even made the exams stress-free compared to my other classes.
I learned all the basics of thermodynamics, the different methods through which a fluid is transferred and how the different methods affect the temperature of the fluid. I learned and was able to discuss these with my peers which I felt helped solidify my understanding of the concepts.

Advice for students:
Professor Minichiello really breaks the subject material of this class down to the basics. Take notes in her class, she had hand-outs when I took it, contribute to the lectures as she does encourage it. Take advantage of the in-class help that she has, it was extremely helpful to be able to ask her questions and also the TA's were very helpful. Hold on to all the class materials as they will come in handy when test time comes around.
