Fovell is the best professor I've had so far. He doesn't use a textbook or powerpoint, just his notes, chalk, and ton's of examples during lectures. Some of the topics were a little difficult to understand, but he explains them very clearly multiple times and offers extra "tutoring" office hours for those who want more help. Some questions on the midterm and final were a bit tricky and require a good understanding of the material, but as long as you go to lecture and take thorough notes, this class is a piece of cake and you learn some pretty cool things.

Overall good professor. He's a fast lecturer so make sure to write quickly. Although he speaks fast, he is constantly asking "does it make sense?" so if you aren't keeping up, make sure to let him know and he will repeat it. Not many people raised their hand to clarify things, but I think everyone kind of just went with his teaching style.

Homework sets are relatively easy. They usually refer back to the material presented in lecture so just go back to your notes. Midterm wasn't too hard either. He gives you a sample midterm and questions were similar to homework questions, just a little more challenging. As long as you understand the material, it's not hard. Final was not too bad either.

Fovell makes the topic as interesting as possible, which isn't the easy task considering it's thermodynamics. He's a great professor and really cares about his students actually learning the material. Never went to office hours, but it wouldn't hurt.

I listened to a pirated copy of the Teaching Company course Robert did whilst I was building my kit plane. It was a bit over my head but I listened to it over and over. Having the diagrams would probably help a great deal. One very cool guy. I really loved the story about his son with the soda can. THX Robert !!
