Hicks was my favorite professor for the quarter. He's realistic, extremely funny, and will make sure you don't fail the class. But my god, this class is a mess with him. His TAs speak broken English, his homeworks are short in the beginning, then suddenly ridiculously long at the end.

Homework:
Moderately difficult. Really need to read the textbook about 3 times through before attempting the homework. You need to do it, half the problems on the exams he pulls DIRECTLY from a past homework. Each assignment gets progressively longer, but as you surpass the learning curve you'll find it easier.

Textbook:
Everyone refers to the textbook as "BSL". It's infamous for it's weird derivations that don't show any steps, and example problems that are mathematically rigorous. For this class, read the textbook, know EVERY EXAMPLE PROBLEM. Attempt some of the problems at the end of the chapters, but beware many of them require mathematics far above this class.

Exams:
There's one midterm and the final. He's generous in curving to a B+. The midterm was fair. 2 problems were pulled from homework. 2 problems were pulled from the textbook examples. He tells you which example problems to do. And he gives you a very clear idea of what's on each exam. Honestly he could have made this exams impossibly hard. If you fail the midterm, he'll make you go to his office, and he'll give you a makeup exam. That's how much he cares. The final is similar to the midterm. He wants you to know the big idea of fluid dynamics.

Overall an easy class for the level of material.

Had Hicks for 102A. He is an okay teacher. He is hilarious, and he usually goes on tangents. Pretty much just goes through some of the examples in the book, but in more detail. His tests are pretty easy. Emphasis on definitions and writing equations for particular scenarios.
