This class was tough.
Dr. Brenner is an amazing professor. He really takes the time to actually make sure that the students understand the material. He also removes the time constraint from tests and the final exam, giving students the entire day to finish the exam. I have taken too many upper level classes where the hardest part of the exam is not the material, but completing 5-7 large questions in 1 hour, which personally I believe the professor himself could not even do.
I learned a lot about materials science, specifically the part that strength is directly related to the atomic properties and the bonds that make up the material. Weaknesses in material stems from poor manufacturing and is on an atomic level

Advice for students:
Study, study, study. Pay attention to the examples in class, those are 90% similar to the problems on the test/exam. Be nice to Dr. Brenner, and he will be nice to you back. He likes to get to know each of his students and connect with them on more than just a professor-student basis.
