This class was tough.
The material, though interesting, can be very boring and bland as it is close to a chemistry class. Also the teacher, though very knowledgeable, can be very dry.
Was able to learn and understand the different types of materials. What makes a material strong and what makes it weak, also how to improve the strength of a material. Finding the actual strength values, when a material with theoretically fail, and how fatigue is the most probable cause of failure.

Advice for students:
Be prepared to study the material daily, or as often as possible. Also do as many practice problems as you can while learning the material.
