This class was tough.
The class itself covers standard kinematic and force laws governing a rigid body. It's pretty standard material; however, there is a lot to understand. Because of this, you need to stay on top of the class. If you don't understand a homework problem, you need to work on it until you do. If you don't, you won't do that well on the tests. Also, if you have Keller, you need to be prepared to teach yourself this material. She is the worst teacher I've had at Cal Poly.
The class covered forces governing rigid bodies in a dynamic environment. That is, they can move. Thus, laws governing motion such as kinetics, momentum and energy are also covered.

Advice for students:
Do your work. If you do your work, and understand all the work you do, you will be fine. If you don't, you will probably fail the class.
